Engaging Sir Isaac has been a wonderful story, a magnificently fun one to write. After I completed the story, I was browsing through Facebook and found the page of an author who is also a supremely talented illustrator, Melanie Bateman.
The above image is the moment when Sir Isaac Fox and Millicent Edgewood meet for the first time. She's come to spy on the baronet, not realizing the uppity groundsman is, in fact, Sir Isaac.
This one - oh, I adore this one! This is the scene in the churchyard. Spoiler: They're about to realize just how much they mean to each other.
Independent artists should support one another, wherever possible.
This is my personal opinion. But I hold strong to it. There are so many people who are talented, producing artwork in a variety of mediums and genres, whose art is stolen, manipulated, under-appreciated, or people expect to get it for free. I've seen this in the writing world - I receive emails from people requesting I make my book free for them or suggested my prices (2.99-4.99) are "too much." When did we start devaluing the work of people's hearts and talents?
The above images were sketched, resketched, practiced, presented to me for my thoughts and input, and then finally inked. Effort went into these images. Talent, not sprung from the ground but laboriously improved upon over a long period of time, was employed here.
I love helping other indies by supporting the beautiful work that they do.
Two years ago, I went searching for a beautiful place in Arizona to set my Western romances. I've wanted to write a Western for YEARS. I've started and stopped several stories based in old dusty towns, with blacksmiths, cowboys, boarding houses, saloons, the works. But no story ever captured my interest enough to really work through an entire plot.
Until this one. Let me tell you, I'm really excited to get this SERIES (yes, as in more than one book) out into the world. While I'm not ready to give EVERYTHING away, I would love to share a little about what's coming...
