"The Perfect Suspect" is now up on Amazon as an ebook.  Here's the link: http://amzn.to/1r9XBnJ - it's listed at $2.99. A print book won't be out until later.


I'm still stuck in the Fairhaven Stories, Book II, but after going to a workshop by Candace Haven on Book Mapping and Fast Draft, ("Write your book in Two Weeks") decided to give her ideas about how to set a book up for fast writing.  I've got an idea ("The Innocent Widow" - how's that for an intriguing title?) and am working on that. This is an interesting exercise for me, since I've always been a pantser, not a plotter, and simply couldn't figure out how to outline a story before I write it. This seems the perfect solution. I'll let you know how it works out. If you have any experience with this way of writing, let me know if it's been successful for you.

​My experience with the Dragon dictation software was a bust, since the version they sent to me wasn't compatible with my Mac Sierra, and I had quite a time trying to make them understand my problem.  Solution: Send it back, get a refund, and decide whether I want to buy the newer, more expensive one.  Seems there's always someone somewhere trying to sell you a better this, fancier that...and all of it keeps me from writing. Hmmm.  Is there a lesson to be learned here, Nancy?

Just got my first paperbacks of my first historical novel, "The Countess of Denwick."

Check it out at:  https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01LMA59HU#nav-subnav.

It looks good, and I'm glad to have the copies right now since I'm going to an author/reader fair this weekend at the Brown County Library in Green Bay. I'm doing a short workshop there on using the 'What if?' questions to plan a book. I hope it will be helpful to those who attend. Every writer works in a different way.
