I have almost finished the first edit of my new book. The ending still needs work, but I have corrected and punctuated and reworked sentences. What is the next step? Get the story right before I start the next edit.
I need to get a few people to read the story to gauge if it has any interest. It’s a difficult subject. This is the synopsis I am working on.
Betsy’s in need of an heir and William’s in need of a mother. She has ambitions for her ward but life doesn’t always turn out as you expect. Family treachery ensues, and it is only a chance encounter with an itinerant preacher which allows William to learn how to forgive but with dire consequences for his own son thirty years in the future. Follow three generations in this saga of a Lincolnshire family, caught up in the big ideas of the early nineteenth century.
