The Lure of the Moonflower, aka Pink XII, is now in the hands of my editor! It was a bittersweet moment, typing the last words of the last ever Pink book this past Friday:

There are still revisions to be done, and copyedits, and all the other bits and pieces– but there’s a book.

By strange coincidence (do my publishers have uncanny timing or what?), the proofs of my next stand alone novel, The Other Daughter, popped up on my doorstep just half an hour after I sent The Lure of the Moonflower off to my other editor.

Because these things always go in threes, guess what also showed up in my inbox at the end of last week? A mock-up of the cover for The Forgotten Room, the novel that Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and I co-wrote together. I can’t show you that quite yet, since they’re still tinkering with the details– but it’s gorgeous.

When will you see these on shelves?

— July 21: The Other Daughter
— August 4: The Lure of the Moonflower
— January, 2016: The Forgotten Room

As to what comes next…. As soon as I’m done with the proofs for The Other Daughter and the revisions for Pink XII and The Forgotten Room, I’ll be starting work on my fourth stand alone novel. Stay tuned for more about that in the fall!

    Lauren, I can’t wait to read about Jane and Jack. I’m excited about the final Pink book but also very sad. You write historical fiction so well and this is one of my favorite time periods.
