As some of you are aware, TIME AND REGRET, my next novel, was acquired by Lake Union Publishing last January. The process from acquisition to publication has been speedy and highly professional occurring on three tracks: editorial, marketing and production. A few days ago I reviewed the interior design, having done a final proofread while on a research trip in Paris.
When I spoke with Miriam, my editor, last week she confirmed the publication date as August 16 and sent me a copy of the final cover. We also discussed marketing plans and how to complement Lake Union’s efforts with my own. Exciting times ahead.
Time and Regret: When Grace Hansen finds a box belonging to her beloved grandfather, she has no idea it holds the key to his past—and to long-buried family secrets. In the box are his World War I diaries and a cryptic note addressed to her. Determined to solve her grandfather’s puzzle, Grace follows his diary entries across towns and battle sites in northern France, where she becomes increasingly drawn to a charming French man—and suddenly aware that someone is following her…
Through her grandfather’s vivid writing and Grace’s own travels, a picture emerges of a man very unlike the one who raised her: one who watched countless friends and loved ones die horrifically in battle; one who lived a life of regret. But her grandfather wasn’t the only one harboring secrets, and the more Grace learns about her family, the less she thinks she can trust them.
I’m thrilled with how quickly Time and Regret has been readied for publication. You can preorder (print, ebook or audiobook) on Amazon. And, of course, I’ll be back with more news 🙂
