New Characters -- New Book

The other day I was trolling for a picture for one of my characters, Amanda Pomeroy.  I cannot write a character without a picture of some sort. It helps me flesh them out, bring their "essence" to the forefront of my mind. When I have a picture, I know I'll "get" them and their story.

Well, in looking for Amanda, I also found several others that I just had to have in my "characters" picture file. And lo and behold, I found a complete family with a butler and a hero. Now, to be quite honest, I have no story. I have no plot other than the two sisters are in love with the same man. That's it. No inkling of how, why, when, where or how this is going to play out. I don't even have a title. But I have the characters.

This is the Earl of Dinsmore. Handsome, distinguished, no nonsense. Have no idea what his name is, or where he's from. Don't even know what kind of role he's to play in the scheme of things.

His wife, Countess Dinsmore. Beautiful, and brilliant. Stands by her husband. I think she might be related to Lady Olivia in some way.

Lady Ariana Dinsmore, the eldest daughter.

Lady Arabella Dinsmore, the youngest daughter.

This is the guy both sisters are fighting over. I have no idea who he is, or what he's up to, but I do know he's going to be in a heap of trouble when the sisters realize he's flirting with both of them.

And this is the butler. Have no idea who he is either, but he seemed like a good butler.

So there we have it. I have the characters, but I have no story. I'm sure one will show up sooner or later, but for now, it's nice to know they're here.
