How do you start a novel that wants to take a big chunk of your life? You pay too much attention to an off-hand suggestion from your literary agent.
I’ve just posted an author review on Goodreads for my historical novel, The Tomorrow Country, telling the tale. Find out the two little words that propelled me into breath-catching world of Victorian social upheaval, crime, romance, desperate causes and staggering idealism.
I wouldn’t have had the guts to face all that, but my characters sure do. I cheer on every one of them.
