I know, I know, it’s taken me long enough! It’s frustrating for me too. But Darien and Chris finally allowed me to put a finish on their story! *does a happy dance*
Now I just need to polish it off, get it read a few times, polish it again, send it in, edit it a few hundred times and so on. But I’m hoping an early 2017 release for it.
Then to see if Luc and Reese will be as nice *crosses fingers*
Look for the Indigo Knights in e-boxed set on July 5th from Loose Id.
My first book in over a year and the new tale of Johnnie and Tyler’s lover is now available at Loose Id!
I do very much hope you like it.
Check it out! Loose Id has releases all the Heaven Sent books in one neat little package.
The normal price will be $17.99 but right now, it’s $7.99.
Many have asked me to write more about Heaven Sent. I tried to keep up to date with the boys in the Indigo Knights series, but those were only glimpses and, I’ve been told, not enough. To be honest, I too have wanted to revisit the boys, but I didn’t want to mess with their happily ever afters. So, what to do? Well, how about writing it all over again in a different setting. Sort of fan fiction but by the author herself.
In the Rose Family Chronicles, I’ll be re-telling the story of some familiar couples. I plan to at least tell the stories for Johnnie and Tyler, Darien and Chris, Luc and Reese, Brent and Hell and Gretchen, Owen and Archer. Same guys, same loves, mostly the same characters but… different.
There is the Rose family. Or, rather, the Rose earldom. The new Earl of Rose is Johnathan, the eldest of four siblings. His sister Gretchen is next in line, then the twins Brent and Reese. They live at Rose Hall in Rosenton, which is a theater town a few hours’ train ride from the capital city Doncaster. The butler at Rose Hall is Mr. Christopher Faith. Tyler shows up in book 1, first as a footman then as a valet (hence the title). Darien also shows up as a footman. Luc and Hell? Stay tuned. Although, take a look at the picture in this post. Luc looks rather dapper, does he not?
Sound like fun? It hope so. I had fun writing book 1, despite the fact that the historical aspects were far more detailed than I expected. This series is not historically accurate. I borrowed from history but altered it a lot. For those of you who don’t enjoy historicals, I hope it’s light enough that you’ll give it a try. For those who do enjoy historicals, I hope I’ve done it justice.
Ah, this feels good. Just thought I’d mention that I’m about 14K into book 2 of the Rose Family Chronicles! Just so you know, it’s not Reese and Luc’s book. This time around, Darien and Chris spoke up first so they get the second spotlight.
I’ll post some more about the Rose family and Rosenton in the next month or so.
Okay, contract is signed so I feel comfy talking about it now.
The Rose Family Chronicles will be familiar for readers of Heaven Sent. Why? Because it’s the same characters. Yep, In Rose Family Chronicles 1: Valet, Johnnie and Tyler start things off again except this time Johnnie is the Earl of Rose. Within the Rose family are his sister Gretchen and his twin brothers Brent and Reese. Tyler is a middle class man who comes to Rose Hall looking for job and lands one, first as a footman, then as Johnnie’s personal valet. You can guess the general path of the story from there. All the principles will show up eventually, and a lot of the secondary characters have been repurposed as well.
The setting is somewhat historical. Why somewhat? Because, dear readers, I am not a history buff. I dabble in the details, swipe freely from other periods when I deem necessary, then outright change and make up anything I think I can get away with.
I’ve had fun writing it. My beta readers have had fun reading it. I hope, in the next few months when it comes out, you’ll enjoy it too.
Stay tuned for more details on the release date.
I did an interview with Prism Book Alliance, mostly about Heaven Sent. May be worth checking out (she says coyly). Also, if you check out the main site, they’ve reviewed some of the books as well.
