Welcome to the Drawing Room

Hello! I assume you are here desiring an audience with Lord Heartless? He is out at the moment but I anticipate his return at any time. Until then, find a comfortable chair, settle in, and enjoy a spot of tea. Browse through the available reading material, learn what you can of the heartless duke, and decide if you really want to meet him. Please leave your calling card in the form of a comment.

It was lovely to see you! Please stop by again.

***Please BEWARE*** If you have yet to read Heartless, certain aspects of the story may be inadvertently spoiled for you here. Please take care while exploring.

Another chapter done!

  Thumbs-Up Guy*
  Chapter six of Heartless is officially edited and I'm halfway through chapter seven. YAY!! 

 Meanwhile, inspiration struck, compelling me to write the first 1000 words on one of my many other Regencies, specifically Flawless. A major plot change demanded a full rewrite, thus rendering the 30k I'd already written worthless. (In case you're wondering, Derringer is not in Flawless, though he does [will] get a mention. He's out of the country at the time Flawless takes place.) 

  So, that's it for Heartless updates, for the moment, anyway. I hope to get back to it later today. 

  *FYI, this is Thumbs-Up Guy, here to give me a big thumbs-up for my itty-bitty accomplishment ... hence the name. You may see him from time to time from now on, as I work my way through this and other stories of mine. He makes me smile. If you've accomplished something today, he's giving you the thumbs-up, too. ☺ Please don't steal the image; I don't own it, I've only licensed the use of it. Thank you.

What does one do...

...when one's real-life lover tells one to spend more time with one's fantasy lover? One listens, of course! 

Allow me to explain. 

Before my husband left for work this morning, he told me I need to work on Heartless, get it back out into the hands of my readers. He often teases me about Derringer being my true love to which I reply Derringer is based on him. (It's true, though my husband looks nothing like Derringer.) Heck, all my heroes are pieces of my hubby but none so much as the Duke of Derringer. 

None of this is to the point. Hubby told me to work on Heartless today, so that's want I'm gonna do. When hubby tells me to do something, as a submissive wife, I have to do it. Unless it's housework. Then he's just being a tyrant. ;O)

I did it!!

Before you get your hopes up, NO, I did not finish the edits on Heartless. No, indeed. I did, however, finish chapter 5 which was a major hurdle for me. Remember why? Yeah, total rewrite. Info dump to the nth degree. The info dump is now gone (sent to the real dump) and I believe I have now captured the gist of what I was trying to say without describing every room in the castle. (What was I thinking!?) 

So edits have now begun on chapter 6 and those aren't nearly so scary.
