In More Recent Times

I laughed to myself yesterday as I realized that aside from my April 2020 airport lounge (free) short story, I have spent the better part of four years writing in the English of the late 1700s and early 1800s. ”’Tis a style with which I am sure you are aware. ‘Twas my earnest hope for decades to write such books.” LOL!

That was not how I began.

I opened in 2013 with a modern travel novel, and two sequels, set in the 1990s and written of course in our current day English. If you have been with me since before 2017, you know. If you don’t…

I taught “those” sorts of students who there are watching a popular TV program – that seems a lot like a Friends episode – in their dorm back in 1994. Actually, a few years before that, I was also one of those students! LOL!

I remain proud of those novels. So with the promo for the 1700s-1800s Conventions, Tomorrow, and their eventual sequel now posted, I decided those earlier modern novels deserved a trailer too. And here it is:

I will return to “modern” writing eventually.

I don’t mind having a particular author “fingerprint.” That is inevitable. But I never want to become too predictable. 😉

Have a good day, wherever you are. 🙂
