Hi everyone....if you've visited my website, you know my next manuscript is titled 'Fire on the Water' and takes place in England in 1778. It involves shipping, pirates, sword fights, romance, balls, castles, kidnapping, Alpha males, romance. Are you an Anglophyle? Love everything English? Let's hear from you. smilies/cloud9.gif

I've changed the title of Fire On The Water to be: No Turning Back. My hero gives the heroine several chances to say no to his advances before he proceeds and she says nothing, but...allows the advances. Are they trying to heal each others wounds and forget their own past?

Now you know I can't give you that much information! Tsk, Tsk.....what kind of author spoils the story for her reader. I've probably said too much already. You can read a few chapters though at www.writing.com/authors/butterfly55_55 (http://www.writing.com/authors/butterfly55_55) if I've caught your interest even a little.

I'd love to hear from you so come back and leave me a comment!

I've started the next novel which will include a lighthouse because I love them and a ghost because they intrigue me. Their spirit is usually stuck here for a reason and my ghost(s) is/are no different. He won't rest until the heroine is romantically attached to the man she is meant to be with.

I've not decided exactly WHO the ghost is. I could easily pull in the characters from No Turning Back and have Nathan be the ghost and the hero be Nathan reincarnated. If you've not read my first novel, that story also was about reincarnation, which fascinates me as well. Then wondering who my hero would look like would be taken care of.

Should I use the same likeness of Nathan as my hero for the ghost/lighthouse story? I'm curious to know what your thoughts are. Please leave me a few comments here. I'll check back later to see what you thought. :smilingsun:

The new novel is moving along well and I've made a few more decisions regarding: the hero, heroine, location and ghost.

We are bringing back, sort of, Nathan and Vanessa, (from No Turning Back) because I just can't let go of him yet. So, Nathan is the ghost in the abandoned lighthouse and will do his best to bring together his reincarnated counter parts so they can eventually realize who they are. The story is contemporary and you'll have to visit my website (http://deannajewel.com) to find out more about where it takes place, along with a few other details about the story.

I hope I've peaked your interest just a little so that you continue to visit me and see what I'm up to. I'd really like to hear from you but though some of you are popping in, you're all too shy to leave me a note. Please don't be shy! I want to hear from you....does this story line start the intrigue?

After seeing that pic of Nathan, you have definitely intrigued me. Throw together and alpha male with an English accent and some romance and I am there. For some reason lately, I have really started liking the whole English 'thing'. :)

Hi yad! You're over in Pasco! Hi neighbor! No wonder you're still up! LOL Thank you so much for stopping by.

Isn't Nathan good looking??? hehe That look in his eye got me as soon as I came across his picture. Now for more news...I actually found out his real name and he lives in London no less! I about lost it when I read that. There has to be karma going on somewhere for the guy I pick for a hero to actually live where the story takes place! I'm waiting for him to answer an email I sent!

Again, thank you for popping in and maybe will see you Thursday!

Ya, hiya neighbor!!!

I am definitely a night owl :)

OMG... You were totally left a karma calling card. You have to let me know if he responds to your email!!

I will be here Thursday, see you then!

Sounds really good. I haven't read any pirates before. Sounds interesting. I love everything you put in the first post. england, castles,etc. On the last two post I enjoy ghost stories too. They are hard to find though.
