I learned something tonight. I’m no good with modern love.

No, no, no – not the David Bowie song:

Modern romances I mean.

I had a great idea for a modern little novella, a couple of great scenes and…

… well a plot that just wouldn’t come together and hero who was so intangible as to be transparent.

I’ve faced the realisation that great author friends Lily Malone and Alison Stuart have ably described – I was writing the wrong book and no amount of thinking, revision and reworking was going to make it happen.

I have a soft spot for Miss Midnight and perhaps her day in the sun will come.

But today is not her day.

So who’s day is it?

Well that would be Lady Abigail Houghall, one of the antagonists of Moonstone Obsession.

Yep, that’s right, the villainess of Moonstone Obsession is demanding her own story and that she be the heroine and she gets her happily ever after.

Well, what the lady wants, the lady gets, but she has to get through France’s Reign of Terror first.


So sorry Miss Midnight you’ve been gazumped by Moonstone Conspiracy.
