You may have noticed things got quiet the last few weeks as I was preparing the latest book in the Dukes, Spies, and Lies series.
It’s hard for me to launch a book out into the world. You put a lot of yourself into it, and you hope people will like it. That they will see the same thing in the characters that you do and enjoy their time with them.
I’m not alone in the nerves that go with launching a new book. Many authors talk about. While it’s nice to know I’m not alone, it doesn’t really lessen the butterflies in my stomach.
And there are a lot of butterflies. A whole rainforest, in fact.
Still, I really like Laurence and Jemma in the latest story. It was fun to turn the tables a bit from the first few stories and have the female character as the spy. A spy who is not above breaking a few rules.
It’s about to be a holiday weekend here, and I am going to kick back with a kindle-full of books and relax a little. Not that Pirate Captain McGregor is going to tolerate such foolishness for long while his story remains unfinished, but he can give me this weekend.
