It took five years but it is finally here!
Huzzah! It was in 2007 that I signed the first contract to publish the story that was then called “90% Proof”. It got past three rounds of editing, and then the anthology project was shelved due to editorial illness and I was offered the rights back.
Then in 2008 I signed the second contract to publish it, and in 2011, when nothing had happened to it in three years, I asked for the rights back. After a re-write and an expansion, I offered it to Carina, and they re-titled it, and today it is actually published as His Heart’s Obsession! I can un-cross my fingers, finally 🙂
As if to reward me for my patience, it’s already had some lovely reviews, and topped Carina’s bestseller list, so I’m officially removing it from my ‘most jinxed story’ category (re-crossing my fingers just in case that was unwise.)
I’ve never had so many reviews before a book was actually out!
The Book Vixen says
Tracy’s Place says
and The Novel Approach says
As with Alex Beecroft’s False Colors (which I loved), His Heart’s Obsession is as much an homage to the Age of Sail as it is a story of forbidden love and the danger it represents. While I’d have liked a bit more exploration of the whens, hows, and whys that lead up to Robert falling in love with Hal, I very much enjoyed what came after.
Thank you to all of them 🙂
