Three More Facts about the Brandnew Novel

  1. My hero has one of those horribly clichéd hero names of romance fiction: friends call him Griff. His full name is George Augustus Frederick Griffin, Viscount Chanderley.
  2. He has to find a respectable wife. Fast.
  3. He has problems with his papa:
“So,” the earl said and eyed Griffin from top to toe. So far he had not offered his son to take a seat, and it became increasingly clear that neither would he do so now. “I have summoned you here today, Chanderley, to discuss your future.” The earl paused as if waiting for a comment.
Taking his cue, Griff echoed with forced politeness, “My future?”
“Indeed. It is well past time that you do your duty to your family and produce an heir. So this season you will find a suitable wife. A respectable girl from a good family and with an umblemished reputation.”
Griff felt the trap close around him.
“After the wedding,” his father went on, “you will naturally remove yourself from London and settle down in the country. I will be generous and leave one of the estates at your disposal. Shall we say Rinton Park?”

Which was nicely situated among the Yorkshire moors. Griff gritted his teeth.

      Is this going to be published as an ebook only? Because if it is, I probably won’t be able to read it, which will be very sad for me.

      Nit-picking commences:

      “So far he had not offered his son to take a seat”: I think that should either be “he had not offered his son a seat” or “he had not asked his son to take a seat.”

      Is English a tricky language or what? 😉 Thanks for the nit-picking, Laura!

      I will make the book available in print as well: thanks to Createspace, you will be able to order it from Amazon. I’ve recently bought one of Lindsay Buroker’s novels in order to find out about the quality of the Createspace books, and was pleasantly surprised. Lindsay’s novel is printed on very nice, smooth, cream-coloured paper, and the ink doesn’t smudge.
