Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m a fan of Outlander. I’m up to date with the series, and I miss not hearing about what Jamie and Claire are doing. I bought the ebook of I don’t know what all, but it has Diana Gabaldon’s synopsis of all of the books in the series. I’ve enjoyed reading about how she became published, how she writes her books, and her background. It is so interesting. I’m not a fan of the nudity in the series, and the sex scenes, but I’ve loved the Scottish scenery. I love the standing stones.
When we visited Scotland, we went to a museum in Glasgow that told a lot of Scottish history. My niece, who is a Scot, told me about the tobacco barons. I’d never heard of them, but they would make an interesting book. In the eighteenth century there were men who had plantations in the southern states of America and in the Caribbean Islands that grew tobacco. They became wealthy and named some of the streets in Glasgow after the states and islands. I thought that would be so interesting to write a story about the tobacco barons. I may someday, but right now I have two more I want to write.
My plans had been to finish Nothin’ Shady Ever Happens in Shady Valley in February, but as with most of our plans, life has gotten in the way. We do have a little time coming up, a hole in our publishing, that I may have time to write. I have so many ideas in my mind right now, and I want to get them down. I will in a few days.
Today I’m finishing up the last read of a manuscript that will release the last of March. It’s Safe Refuge by Pamela S. Meyers. Pam has a long list of published books already. This is a very good historical romance. Now, to get back to my reading.
