Let’s begin with the good news: The Forgotten Daughter is available for pre-order and on schedule for a January 27 release. Please do pre-order. It is only 99 cents now, but it will revert to full retail price on after launch.
The candles came out of the windows the day after Epiphany. In the Regency era it was considered bad luck to leave decorations up after Twelfth Night. Alas ours will be around for a while yet. We aren’t moving very fast having succumbed to some sort of winter respiratory ill. Asthma + the common cold = bronchitis. Or Omicron in its mild form perhaps. It doesn’t matter. We’ve gone back into shelter in place mode. SIGH.
I’m on the mend, though, and my hope is eternal. Today I have reverted to an actual schedule and resume writing. It is a good thing. The books don’t write themselves, and The Upright Son is about a month behind! But first, coffee.
