Lady Cadoret's Longing is Done

Seven days. It took seven days to write this short story, or is it a novella at 20,000 words? Of course, during the course of this week, I gave up laundry, vacuuming, cooking, dusting, working at the old house, mowing the lawns and showering. Okay, I did cook. Twice.

But it's done and I feel great. I like this story. It's cute. It also deals with some heavy duty topics, like death. Ewww. But I think I pulled it off with aplomb. Or perhaps after you read it you might think it bombs. I don't know.

Either way, I'm pretty happy with it. It's going into a collection with three of my other short stories. No, I'm sorry, you won't be able to find it singly by itself. I want to give people a chance to have the whole collection together in one place rather than taking space up on their e-readers.

I'm also going to put this book in paperback as well. Give-aways will be forthcoming in the fall. Perhaps if my fingers hold out, I may also be able to get THE LADY'S MASQUERADE finished in time for the celebration.

In other news, I also made a book trailer for THE DUKE'S DIVORCE. You can find it here for your viewing pleasure.

Hope you all have a great week.


  1. Cool trailer! I wouldn't have a clue how to make one.

  2. That does sound like a heavy duty subject for a romance but, when you think about it, doesn't the fact that the inevitability of our death make our loves all the sweeter? I'll keep an eye out for this collection!

    Off to watch the trailer now. :)

    PS 7 days to write 20 000 words!?! Whew! I am definitely going to have to practice writing more and writing faster!

  3. Thanks Carol. It takes a bit of manuervering around the video maker but once you get the hang of it, easy peasy.

    Judy -- Unfortunately Lady Cadoret loses her beloved in the Napoleonic Wars and that does some terrible things to her state of mind. However she does have someone looking out for her.

    PS It's funny what you can accomplish in a few short hours everyday when you push yourself. Believe me, the rest of my life suffered as I wrote this, but I just had to get it out of my system.

  4. Oh Anne, I just watched the trailer. I LOVE it.
