Remember when we were kids and time seemed to crawl? Not now, or for a long time for me. Now, the days and weeks fly by. It’s hard to believe that 2018 is half over…close enough anyway.
I, Claudia, is keeping me very busy, as promised. In the beginning this switch to historical fiction felt daunting. And the stack of research books far higher than for previous novels. But then I learned that it’s no different, not really. It’s just that starting- anything- is always the toughest part.
Now that the cover is done I’m on track for a late fall release. The cover provides remarkable impetus. This one is another splendid creation by Nancy Cleary. When I saw that woman in red, I knew, this is Claudia!
I find it hard to keep up with Claudia and Lucius as they tell me their stories. Sometimes I cannot type fast enough. That’s a great place to be in the writing of a story.
By the way, Malthus Revisited has won another award. In addition to receiving the 2nd prize for the Feathered Quill 2018 Best Book Award in Women’s Fiction, Malthus was selected as best thriller in the Winter 2018 Pinnacle Awards. Cool, huh?
Here’s that cover. You’ll see, I think, that it’s perfect. Now I need to assure that the story matches the quality of the cover.
As always, thanks for checking out About Lin Wilder!
