Mothers and Daughters

1910 – Lucy and her sister Eva are devastated to learn on their father’s death that he had married their mother bigamously, making them illegitimate. If that isn’t bad enough, their father seemed to care nothing for them when he willed his entire estate to his legal wife leaving the girls and their mother Sylvia destitute.

In desperation Sylvia borrows money from a scheming loan shark Stan Naylor and when she can’t make monthly repayments he demands Lucy settle the debt in kind and he won’t take no for an answer.

Time to get serious

September 21, 2006

The first ten chapters of my new novel are complete – in draft form, of course. Haven’t had much time for blogging unfortunately.

The time has come now to send these ten chapters off to my agent. The purpose of this is to show her that I am getting on with the job in hand; get her advice on how it looks so far, and if possible give her some ammunition to try to secure a new book contract for me.

Even though I have already had ten books published with the uncertain state of publishing today nothing can be taken for granted. You are only as good as your current book – never before has that phrase been truer. The competition in my genre is fierce.
 
But I can only give it my best shot.
