First book in new historical romance fiction series is almost ready to publish

I am so excited, can you tell lol

My first book in the new historical romance fiction series I am writing is winging its way to my editor as I write this post. “Women & War” is the series title with each book being called after the main character. The first book, Gracie, came in at just under 51,000 words and I am really happy with it.

It’s the story of Gracie Thompson, a young servant who comes of age in WW2 London. Her boyfriend is an RAF pilot as is her twin brother Stan. The story starts in 1938 and finishes sometime in 1941. Gracie wants to do more than dress Lady Louise but with her father and her boyfriend against the idea of women in uniform will she get to serve at all?

I loved writing it but am so glad it’s finished as I can’t wait to see what reaction it gets. I am nervous too but I am told that’s a good thing. Also I want to get started on the story of Penny – Gracie’s friend in book one. I have had an awesome cover designed. What do you think?

Gracie Women and War
