Update on Life

Gee, I can't believe the last time I posted here was July 2014!  Where have I been?  Well . . .

Periodically, I have worked on two other books - a contemporary romance and The Price of Passion.  Most importantly, however, I just finished two more novellas under my pen name, Nora Covington - Whitefield Hall and Blythe Court.  Recently, I released a box set of all three that includes Thorncroft Manor.

NEWS! Thorncroft Manor was reviewed and received a 4.5 Crowned Heart of Excellence from InD'Tale Magazine (March 2015) Comments were, "There is but one flaw in this otherwise perfect romance - not enough story!"  Apparently, the reviewer wanted more of Caroline and Bramwell. 

I have discovered that writing novellas is a challenge.  It's a bit difficult to scrunch a story into 30,000 to 40,000 words.  Sometimes they seem rushed to me, too, and I find the tale moving along at lightspeed. However, many authors are finding that there are a growing number of readers who prefer shorter stories due to busy schedules. 

Blythe Court has definitely turned out to be my personal favorite of the three. If you're into handsome men and unrequited love, you'll love the mystery and danger.


Also, The Legacy Series Box Set is on sale starting today for one month through April 15, 2015 for 99 cents!  Such a steal!  I will be doing some advertising to push it along as well.



Stay tuned as I refocus upon The Price of Passion.  About 75% of my readers want book #4, while 25% seem content to end it at The Price of Love.  I'm giving into the majority.  The book is almost half finished, so it's coming along.  Just keep in mind there is always that theme that everything in life carries a price -- even passion.

Cheers,
Vicki
