In the Bleak Midwinter

Our book club read this book and we would like to read more involving the characters of Clare and Russ, but we were offended by the language.  Is it really necessary to use such language?Have you written other books in which there is less foul language?DiannePSee More

Book Recommendations 24 Replies

Because I love this series so much, I would be willing to consider any recommendations Julia has. She has gotten me into the Inspector Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny. Any other recommendations, either from Julia or from my fellow bloggers?

Sorry about the spam message, everyone!

Once in a while one of those vile crew of internet pirates gets through. Thanks to alert readers Judy, Penny, Kathy and Anne for giving me the heads up. The spammer has been banned and all its messages deleted.

When Will the Next Book be Out?

As you may know, I'm working on the next book in the series. Its working title is SEVEN WHOLE DAYS, but don't count on that to last because the booksellers I've spoken to all went, "Blaaah," when I tried out the title on them. The novel opens about two months after the end of ONE WAS A SOLDIER and, as you might guess from the title, takes place over a single week.

Right now, it looks as if publication will be at the end of 2012 or beginning of 2013. I'll let you know when I…

But I finally got this week's excerpt up. Thanks for your patience.

I just found out tonight's my 11-year-old's school choir Christmas concert. It's rainy and cold and all I could think was "Nooooooo....." making me a combination of Bad Mom and Scrooge. The things we do for our kids.
