After 10 years of waiting, it appears "The Assassin" is at least in the editing process.

Hmmm....that's good news.

I've read all three of her books...there are only 3, right?...loved The Warlord, the other 2 were so-so.

Wonder which way The Assassin will fall...

Dear Readers,

Happy Holidays, 2008!

My bout of Writerís Block is OVER. And that means itís a very happy holiday season at my house!

The manuscript for The Assassin is in New York with my editor. At last! It will take her a few weeks to get through it, so Iím guessing I will have a verdict by mid-January-ish. Iím absolutely anticipating edits. All of my books required some level of editing and changes at this point. My editor is very good at seeing things Iím now blind to in the story, such as rough transitions that need to be smoothed, or making suggestions about specific scenes that need improvements. I donít want to jinx anything, but this version feels very írightí so I think the final edits will involve few if any major revisions. Weíll see...

I will send out another email when I get the verdict and a better idea of a publication date. In the meantime, Iíve already started on the next book which involves Faulke and Isabel, two minor characters from The Assassin. I decided to stay in my medieval world rather than jump back to the Regency stories for two reasons. First, the characters are alive in my head and telling me what they want to say, and I donít want to muzzle them. Second, Iím living in the medieval world right now and it would take at least a month to move myself into the atmosphere of the Regency world. At this point, Iím going to keep it simple and stay where Iím at, deep in 13th century England.

Another project Iím looking forward to ó Iím going to completely revamp my website in January. I was just too busy with the manuscript to take on this project until now, but Iíve been getting grief about its barely-there nature. For someone with my IT resources...Well, several of my friends say theyíre embarrassed for me.

So, thatís the news from here. Iím just thrilled that the muse boycott is over and I can get the stories out of my head and onto paper again. Itís been a long, strange trip, and I really appreciate all of my readers who have been so loyal throughout this process.

THANK YOU! Happy Holidays!!

I don't know if I asked you this before (I only remember that you told me once about an author you liked) so Im sorry for having only half a brain :blink:

What are her books like? Is there someone you can compare her with? I guess if someone can keep you interested for 10 years her books would be worth reading Butthug

Hmmm,
To me they are as good as Kleypas and a 10 times better than Deveraux.

Have you read "Lord of Scoundrels"? Because "Warlord" reminds me a great deal of that.

Seriously, her books are great (all 3 of them)

No, I haven't read that one. I guess now is a good time to give her a try because if I should get hooked on her books her new one comes out soon tass

Based on that Essie, sounds like another author I need to put on my TBR pile -I'm a big Lisa Kleypas fan and Jude Deveraux, I have a couple of her books ... TankU

I enjoyed The Warlord a lot. The main H/H were very engaging. I only wish one minor detail wouldn't have happened but I understand why it did. The ending was very good and sweet.

I still need to read the other two. I own one of them, I am not sure which. But I am working on my TBR pile finally so I will try to get to it.

Soundrel is the next and it's a fav of mine....the couple fall in love gradually.

Betrothed is her third, and while it's not awesome, she does incorporate some things that are interesting (Italian history) etc.

Her books aren't anxiety producing for me....they're pleasant reads from the beginning to the end.
