I finally get to announce this:
"The Historical that Wouldn't Die".... LIVES! And has found a home at Samhain Publishing, Ltd.
Set in 1870 on the Western Coast of Ireland, Alaina's Promise was my first completed novel. It's undergone serious revisions since that time...a time when I had no idea what 'point of view' or 'headhopping' meant. My plotting left much to be desired, as well.
But the story has been streamlined, made more coherent and a little more exciting. Apparently my editor approved. :)
With a tentative release date of January 30th, this coming year is shaping up to be another good one.
