Summer's End


Autumn is upon us, with the fall equinox coming up tomorrow, along with a new school year and cooler, crisper weather in many places. 


I always feel a surge of energy at this season, probably a leftover from those bygone school days. And a good thing, too, because I’m right in the midst of my new series The Duke’s Sons, with lots of adventures to keep track of and deadlines following one after another. If the project was a week, I’d be somewhere around Wednesday, I guess. If it was a year, I’d be swinging around the end of July. Wait, does that mean I’m behind?
Why am I doing math? Numbers are not my thing. The writing is going well, on schedule. And I’ve discovered that I love hanging out with the same family for an extended period of time, instead of starting fresh with a new cast of characters in each book. For some reason, this is the first time I’ve done that. It took quite a bit of planning up front, but now the brothers pop in and out of each other’s stories with ease. Or maybe I mean charming complications.
I hope your autumn is productive and happy. I’m heading back to my cavalry major and his intended, now, to extricate them from a spot of trouble. You can find the first book in the series, Heir to the Duke, in January. I think the cover is gorgeous.
