paperback writer

So the paperback of Before Versailles comes out September 4th. Here’s the new cover.

I’ll be doing a blog tour, and I’ll post those blog entries here for awhile. I’ve been asked great questions: what about the man in the iron mask, how do I research, is creativity wild, who was my favorite character… will give you a chance to look at historical novel blog sites, and give me a chance to explain more of my process.

I’m working on another book, which means Before Versailles, which was so real to me for so long, has become misty, like old memory. The people I knew as well as I know ones in my real life have receded, stepped back. They only live on the page. May they live for you……

  1. Every time I pick up one of your books the characters leap off the page . . . as with people in my life, some have receded and are alive only when I wish them to be . . . that is a good thing, always a good thing . . . may the hurtful people in our lives recede and may we have the good grace to leave them there . . . am looking forward to more from you . . . Blessings Be, Jeannine
