Travel is a huge inspiration to me. Luckily for me and my family we are currently able to spend some time abroad and it’s been amazing! Just finding ways to get out of one’s comfort zone can clarify thought, provide new insights and, most importantly for an author, provide new characters!
I plan on making the most of this time outside of the “norm” to the best advantage. Not only for finishing book 2 in the Widows series, The Widow’s Secret, but also for meeting new people and creating fun, interesting and entirely human characters.
I have a deadline of October 31st to get The Widow’s Secret to my editor. I want to be able to get it out to all of you as soon as possible, because I know you’ll love Elizabeth and Crispin as much as I do! Their adventures begin along with those of Grace and Kyle from The Widow’s Promise, but it is still going to be a stand-alone novel that can be read out of order.
But since The Widow’s Promise is now available, why don’t you go ahead and get started on it, then you’ll be ready to go when The Widow’s Secret comes out. I’m planning for it to be ready right around Christmas time. It will be an awesome gift to give yourself!
And then I will be done with my travels for awhile. I will be sure to keep you updated on any of our adventures and give you some ideas of how they may show up in future books.
Thanks for reading! Share with me some of your thoughts on travel and what it means, how it can improve your outlook and make us all better people. I’d love to hear from you!
