I'm really pleased to be part of this group, and to kick off what I hope will be a lively stream of posts of interest to you, our readers. I'm enjoying a wonderful summer, working on my fourth historical novel, tentatively called THE SHAPE OF THE WORLD. It's set in Portugal and Spain at the time of Henry the Navigator and Ferdinand & Isabella. I'm about 350 pages in, so it should be done this fall. At the same time I am working hard to be ready for the release of my second novel, PENELOPE'S DAUGHTER, which is coming out on October 5 from Penguin/Berkley Books, and doing the edits on the manuscript of my third historical novel, THE LAWS OF MOTION, coming out from Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books in April 2011. It's hard to juggle all three, but I'm not complaining. It's a very nice position to be in! If you're interested in more information about the process of writing a book, I've been blogging about it at www.laurelcorona.com, and if you're the kind who prefers your information Facebook-sized, I have a page there as well. Look for me as "Laurel Corona, Author." Thought for the day from Goethe: "Nothing is worth more than this day." Use it well!
