If you have been following me on Facebook, you’ll know that I am in research mode. I have some ideas for Book Three - yes, that’s what I am calling it. I don’t have a title yet.
I have been intrigued with the Napoleonic Wars and their impact on Britain. Lately, I have narrowed the scope to the Battle of Trafalgar.
I am sure you are wondering what in the world this has to do with a time travel love story. How does this tie in with Benjamin and Tilly who live in the 19th century Scottish Highlands? Well, I guess that’s why you’ll have to read the next book!
While I do not have the resources to include enormous amounts of historical facts and spend chapters talking about history, I do want the basics to be right. For example, how strange would it have been if Tilly tried to do research on an iPad?? If you see a historical detail mentioned in my books, it is accurate. I even look at menus of the time to figure out whether or not someone would have ate a particular dish. Side note - ewwwwwww, some of the stuff they ate was nasty. Different times….
So, know that Book Three is on my mind. I have the general story for the whole thing in my head. Right now, I want to make sure it is feasible. I have already learned so much that it has impacted one line that the story will take (it is not possible). Hopefully, little details like this enrich the story for you.
