I was up all night writing. I’m a bit woozy today and I haven’t checked to see if what I wrote was actually any good yet. (My judgment is really off at four in the morning.) But I think it’s really good. Dora has this amazing scene- well, I’ll wait until I have the courage […]

I just got the same editor’s feedback but as an editorial email. Apparently she sat down with a bunch of editors at a meeting and discussed the book. (sweat begins to pour) The comments were mostly the things I wrote in last posting . She wrote at the end “I realize that what i’m suggesting will require a complete […]

don’t have much to say

Really just wanted to use that icon which I got from olde-fashioned’s journal. Anyone who loves Victoriana should check it out.  My daughter had a gymnastics show today. She did the back walk-over which was really cool to see. (she wanted me to mention that she is the only one in her class who can […]

rewrote beginning of Hartfield

Posted on May 19, 2007 at 5:58 pm

The new beginning is awesome. At least I think so- my husband (and fan club of eight people) have yet to agree.  I’ve had a very restful day, the weather is beautiful and I watched my kids run around outside all day. I’m supposed to be finishing revisions now but of course I am procrastinating […]

My husband and I just spent the last hour brainstorming about Hartfield Affair and he helped me come up with some great ideas to flesh out Dora a bit more. A good portion of the beginning is going to be rewritten. I am a little freaked out- but it will be for the best. Will […]

editor number 1

Posted on May 14, 2007 at 6:09 pm

Well- the first YA editor got back to my agent. This is what she wrote:Thanks for being patient while I gathered my thoughts together on this intriguing project.  Even though I’ve never read a Sherlock Holmes book, I was charmed by the style of writing. Both as a pastiche and as historical fiction, this text […]
