I have NEWS! I’ve finished draft one of my fantasy novel, TBA. This novel, when/if published a ways down the road, will be released under my pen name, S.M. Tinker. Yes, the initials stand for something. No, I’m not telling you.

A little about the project: It’s set in a quasi-Georgian England-esque land. Thought that would be a little different than the standard Medieval-esque setting.

My FMC (female main character) is a drudge on the run from her mistresses. I’d imagine her cleaning up and wearing something nicer than rags. Something akin to this:

011

And be sure that I’m doing loads of research before I head back into rewrites. One of my sources, which I highly recommend, is What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank by Krista D. Ball. One of the staples in my novel will, of course, be pasties. Mm!

014

There are lots of areas to cover when making up a new world (that’s why I can’t wait for Amy Laurens‘ From the Ground Up, due out from Tyche Books this winter. (Ee! So excited for this resource.)

Well, enough of my rambling about this yet-to-be finished project. In a Pickle‘s print release looms in the near distance, as does the release of Lady Catherine Says: 365 Tweets of Condescension. And I have edits to do for CIASG. Eek!

Here is some thing you can do to help me at the moment:

  • Lift me and writing up in prayers, specifically that I will meet all my deadlines and honor God with my writing

Thank you!

Keep your pen on the page,
Beth
