I’m working on galleys for Love’s Fortune so am in the writing closet, so to speak.

Over time, (after the trauma of the first round!), I’ve come to enjoy galleys. One of the best things about them is spending time reading the book aloud. You catch all sorts of little things you wouldn’t otherwise and the rhythm of the words really comes through.

I’d so appreciate your prayers as I make final changes to this last Ballantyne book. As Beth Moore said so well in a recent blog post: “A writing project going to press brings a very vulnerable feeling. Some of you know what I’m talking about. You’ve been so close to it for so long that you often have no idea if it’s decent writing or makes a whit of sense. All you can know is that you gave it everything you had.”

After being away from Love’s Fortune since November it’s a joy to spend time with these characters again.  Hard to wrap my mind around the fact that I’m now writing Eden’s granddaughter’s story. I’m still torn between my 2 heroes ~ good thing there are 2 heroines in this one! I always promise you a HEA as they say. Unhappily ever afters make me grumpy!

Back soon to celebrate Easter and spring with you…
