408 of them, to be exact! I just received the final typeset pages for The Colonel's Lady which I'm reviewing for the last time before it goes to print. This go round I have an author's note and also acknowledgements, something I don't always do. Hope you read and enjoy them:) If I could tell each of you readers how much you mean to me, the acknowledgements would be as long as the novel! The page count was 448 but has shrunk a bit now that it's in book form. The longer the better, I say...
This lovely oil painting by artist Meadow Gist at left could be taken right out of The Colonel's Lady. But no spoilers here!
I have to mention a very special blog happening tomorrow at Carla's site. Our beloved Mary Spencer, 18th-century reenactor extraordinaire, will be answering questions from readers. I hope you'll stop by if you have time. Carla has been doing a wonderful series called Dressing a Colonial Lady on her blog recently. Paul and I have a fiddling jam bright and early but will try to visit once we're home.
Speaking of all things 18th-century, which aspects of dress back then do you find appealing? As for me, I'm on the hunt for a hand fan. If you know of a site that might be helpful, I'd love to know about it.
Bless you all!
