As most of you probably know, the announcement went out this week about my newest project.

Author of GILT and upcoming TARNISH, Katherine Longshore's MANOR OF SECRETS, pitched as a Downtonesque story of two girls living in very different worlds within the same Edwardian country house -- and what happens when those worlds collide, to Aimee Friedman at Scholastic, by Catherine Drayton at Inkwell Management (World). (From Publisher's Marketplace).

This is the story, written from alternating points of view, of Charlotte Edmonds--the daughter of the Earl of Edenbridge--and Janie Seward--the daughter of his cook and The Manor's kitchen maid.  It has been an absolute delight to work on and a real stretch for me as a writer.  The two points of view, the completely different historical period, writing in third person.  But it has also been just plain fun--so very different to write about people who don't eventually get executed for treason. :)

I hope you enjoy it, too.  It's currently scheduled to be released in February 2014, and I'll be sure to be telling you all about it between now and then!

  2. Sounds interesting, but what about book 3? Is that still in the works?

    1. Absolutely, Courtney! Still in the process of revision, but it's really taking shape. I hope to be able to start talking about it soon!
