The Substitute Bride

I have a new historical romance out next week - Whiskey Creek Press - or rather is it? I was caught napping when my Publisher e mailed me and asked, is it just a romance, Margaret, or is it something more? With all that goes on with specific genre it had me thinking, well was it? Fortunately Debbie gave me a clue, isn't it also mystery or suspense? Well yes, when I came to think about it it was quite suspenseful. How come I the writer missed that? Well you do so easily miss things. You start out writing a romance set in the middle ages and then pow, it takes off down dark and dangerous passageways and you aren't noticing it. I owe a huge thank you to Debbie and Steve Womack for pointing that out - so thank you folks!

As to the The Substitute Bride, more next week - but I will tell you it is a Medieval romance-suspense and the tale of two sisters who exchange places. The younger is sent in the older sister's place to marry the mysterious Lord Hinchcliffe; neither girls have met the man, it was all arranged by their father. Bess expects an old dodderer whom she can manipulate and oh boy is she is for a shock!

Ta ta for now...
