~ a letter from Loretta ~
My Dear Reader,
November in New England can be gloomy and raw, but lucky stars shone on me. I got to spend most of it on Cape Cod, and we had plenty of sunshine, mild days, and peace and quiet. The latter was especially valuable while I worked feverishly to finish the last quarter of Vixen in Velvet. Thanks to tranquility and a beautiful view, including ducks, swans, and wicked woodpeckers, I finally reached The End. For a celebratory illustration and a bit more about the production stage we’re at, please see my blog.
Over the next month or so I’ll be taking a short breather, in between working on revisions and the remaining stages that turn a manuscript into a book and get it to your favorite bookseller. Then it will be time to embark on Lady Clara’s story.
