I’ve wanted to post an update on my writing progress, but I haven’t.

The last half of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 have included some unavoidable distractions, and I have been unable to keep up with my full writing schedule. Despite that, I published Mary Bennet, which is a novella, and two short stories for Holidays with Jane: Christmas Cheer and Spring Fever (coming soon). But novels are more complex, and I need full concentration to do justice to Julia and Vincent’s story.
