BREAKING NEWS!

Breaking News! copy

I have finished my first book in over a year.  It is currently with the professional editor and should be available for sale by the end of June.  The story has been posting on FanFiction.net.  I thought I would reveal the cover today!  Stay tuned next week when I will reveal the blurb for the book.

WHICH DO YOU PREFER?

I am still stressing over the need to make the dialect of servants and foreign characters different from that of the rest of my novel.  I think that I have finally decided how I feel about this issue, but want to get your opinion.

In this instance, the character is a french woman who is the most popular modiste in London.  Which of the following examples would you prefer to read:

EXAMPLE 1

“I have heard of Monsieur Gardiner, but have not had the pleasure of meeting him.  Perhaps, Madame Gardiner, you might arrange for an introduction.  If he can obtain such beautiful fabrics, I must have access to him.”  To her listeners, Madame LaRue’s accented-English flowed as smooth as fingers gliding across the silks on her shelf.

EXAMPLE 2

“I ‘ave ‘eard of Monsieur Gardiner, but ‘ave not ‘ad the pleasure of meeting ‘im. Perhaps, Madame Gardiner, you might arrange for ze introduction. If ‘e can obtain such beautiful fabricz, I must ‘ave accezz to ‘im.”

I look forward to your responses!

Happy Reading!

I still have several free copies of my audiobook, The Laughter of Love, to give away.  The third question I asked never received an answer, so we will try a new question.

Question 3:  What was the name of the young gentleman to whom Lady Marjorie first became engaged?

First correct answer will win a free audio copy of book three in my  Laughter series.

ANOTHER WINNER AND ANOTHER CHANCE TO WIN!

Congratulations to Rebecca Down for answering question #2 correctly.  The second place Darcy and Elizabeth stayed on their way to Pemberley was in a quaint cottage on an island.
