It's showtime. The manuscript goes to publishers this month. I'm going over the novel one last time, adding what didn't get added to the latest draft and incorporating the suggestions I've heard from others. I'm also launching my website, blog and updating my Facebook page. I'll remind everyone to check things out.
Yesterday, I began researching book 2, which will take place in the present and in 1941-42. I'm drawn to the disbelief of the situations facing Anne, the girl Julia will learn about in book 2. Book 1 is really a setup for book 2. Of the three books in the series, I believe book 2 will generate the most interest and noise.
