My life as an author just keeps getting better and better! I was notified yesterday that my novel, Lucia’s Lament, has won the IHIBRP 5-Star Recommended Read Award for “superb writing,” “impeccable research,” and “fully-fleshed characters.” I’m thrilled and grateful for such high praise!
Stay tuned next week for the cover reveal which includes the award badge. So exciting!
You can read the Writer’s Block 5-star review here:
Alas, my loyal readers, I find myself in a pickle. As you may recall, I have promised that Gerald, nurse Lucia’s would-be suitor in Lucia’s Lament, would be given his own story. That story, I thought, would be my upcoming novel, Winnie’s Wish. However, the historical figure who has presented herself as the epicenter of Winnie’s Wish, was born at least 80 years too soon for Gerald to be included in her story.
Thus, the dilemma. Shall I ignore the rantings and ravings of a spoiled British Princess, who wants this book to be about her, in order to continue with our dashing Gerald’s tale? Or, shall I tell dear Gerald to wait, and succumb to the Princess and the intriguing politics of King George III’s royal court in the late 1700’s?
Thoughts? Feelings? Rantings? Ravings? I’m open to suggestions, my friends.
I am beyond ecstatic! JB Richards posted a 5-star review on The Writer’s Block on the Yeshua and Miri website for Lucia’s Lament. Her words thrilled my heart and I just had to share. Take a look and feel free to share.
