A few days ago, I came across what sounded like a fascinating book about time travel, Island of Secrets, by Tammie Gibbs. (Me, fascinated by time travel? Surprise!) I contacted the author, who graciously sent me a review copy. I'm looking forward to finishing the book, and will be posting a review. Tammie will also be joining us with a guest blog and interview! Stay tuned.
In the meantime, many people are asking when Book 2 of the Blue Bells Trilogy is coming out. Where am I with it? In one last edit before sending off for proofs. Those will then be edited. Very specifically, I am, right now, this very morning, in the chapel of the Thieving MacDougalls, in the west of Scotland, where somebody is about to get a shock by hearing a mysterious voice from the confessional which has been empty for centuries. (Cue minor chords!) I had fun with this scene and learned quite a bit, while researching, about the various structure of medieval churches, to boot!
And the question remains: whose cattle were those, anyway?
