I'm very pleased with the progress I'm making on Disappearance in Drury Lane. Have about 75 pages, introduced some new players / new problems, with regular characters in full attendance. I don't want to give anything away, but we are back in London, exploring its streets and squares, from elegant Mayfair to the back streets of the East End. One of Marianne's old friends has gone missing, but what should be a simple case of course proves to be anything but.
In other news, I have a website designer and builder busily overhauling the entire gardnermysteries.com website, and hope to hear from her soon. The preliminary designs look great. I've gotten notifications from some readers about the problems with my current website, which are noted and being addressed. The website will be on a new platform with a new look, updated for the wider laptop monitors (web address will not change).
I will keep writing along on Drury Lane, and have a pub date for you soon. (Every time I project one, life happens, so I'm trying to fool life by saying nothing until I have the full draft finished.)
I'm excited today because one of my Jennifer Ashley romances hit #16 on the New York Times list and #44 on the USA Today. Excellent news! My way of celebrating is to write more, so I'm continuing deep into Captain Lacey's world.
I'll update here again when I have more news.
