But I did it. In my blog article “My Lord Raven has a long backstory,” you can read the history of my newly re-released medieval romance My Lord Raven. Finally, after all these years, I’m more than happy with the finished product. And I’ve set it up for there to be a sequel.
From My Lord Raven:
Catrin propped herself up on an elbow. “Sit. Tell me.”
Bran joined her, sitting on the side of the lord’s great bed. She was so lovely, as beautiful as the first day he laid eyes upon her in the pathway. “Waryn de Grey soon returns from duty in Gascony.”
Catrin scooted to prop herself against the headboard. “Then my cousin’s fate is at hand.”
“Seems so,” Bran acknowledged. Olwen de Belleme had not been spared the king’s directives. At that moment, she remained closeted at the nunnery but was to be wed as soon as her betrothed collected her from her sanctuary.
“I hope she will be as happy as we.” Catrin touched his shaven face.
So you see, there’s a perfect new heroine lurking in the last pages of My Lord Raven: Olwen, the timid cousin. Will she wed the knight the king has chosen for her?
Sigh. You know she will. It’s a romance, after all. But how will it happen? Will they fall in love? Will they live happily-ever-after?
I want to write the novel, I really do. But I have a bunch of other projects nagging me. And if My Lord Raven is any predictor, I take a long time to research and write a historical romance. I want to make it historically correct—or as right as I can make it. I want it to be a fun, satisfying read. I want readers to enjoy it.
So will I write the sequel? Yes. God willing, some day I will finish Raven’s Vow—Olwen and Waryn’s story.
My Lord Raven is available for preorder. Release date February 25, 2017
