Warmistress Under Way!

I started writing Warmistress tonight while sitting at a Village Inn, sipping coffee and eating yummy cherry pie. The start of the book was delayed by a few hours as I had a few notes that I had forgotten about that read along the lines of, “Research medieval military ranks/organizations.”

Once the research was done and a mix-mash of various terms was listed for use in a manner that the modern reader can recognize, I started in on the book. It’s been a long time since I’ve written anything from Laurin’s point of view, but it came back to me in an instant. This is a character that I could write about at the drop of a hat, and I love doing so. I can’t wait to get deeper in this book when the “fun stuff” really happens. Now that I think about it, “fun stuff” happens to Laurin almost right away.

Yeah, I know. Hook the reader fast.

Don’t worry. The hook for this book happens halfway through page four of the manuscript. That fast enough?
