Touch of a Thief, due out Apr 26

I submitted the first 500 manuscript words for THE HIGHLAND PIONEER to Mia Marlowe’s blog Red Pencil Thursday.

She provides an instructive encouraging critique and comments from her viewers.  The result?  I dug deeper and improved the opening chapter.  The process of writing, critiquing , and revision of a good story followed by final editing so necessary to produce a quality  finished manuscript.  Finding areas in a manuscript that need improvement requires many pairs of eyes. My blog readers who write already know the drill.  Click  here to take a peek.

As a reward for taking part in beta testing for her new website, she gave me an advance copy of her novel TOUCH OF A THIEF,  due out April 26.   If you prefer a cozy novel without steam, this book might not be for you. I enjoyed her writing style and have matured with age, (I am smiling here) so didn’t get burned by the steam.  A good historical romance story.

Wishing you all that surge of creative energy that comes with spring. I can see blue sky here in the Pacific Northwest.  For those being teased by mother nature, I hope spring is just around the corner.
