What I'm Doing Now
recently have completed the task. Why, you may ask did I wait so long? Why did I write them separately in the first place?
I wrote Miss Trent as a companion piece to A WIFE FOR WINSBARREN as she is one of the ladies he meets. However, once the story was finished, as it was only written from Ophelia's point of view, I knew I needed to add Davingdale's. However I didn't really know Davingdale all that well as a character so it took me some time to get him just right. He also appears in a novel I started writing, so I had to mesh the two timelines and characters.
Anyway, the reason I bring this up -- I've combined these two short stories into novella length, and along with ROMANCING LADY RYDER, a revamped version of A WIFE FOR WINSBARREN, and two new short stories LADY CADORET'S LONGING, and a title to be named later, I'm going to put them all into one volume. A ROMANTIC REGENCY COLLECTION. Which will also allow me to produce it in paperback for those of you who are so inclined to read paper books.
I'm not sure how long it will take to get this together as I'm in the middle of a move and although I'm trying to keep my computer up and running for as long as possible, I'm going to have to stop at some point. Hopefully, I'll have it ready by the end of the summer.
So that's what I'm doing now.
