What Capt. Lacey has been up to . . .

I’ve been doing many things on this side of the laptop since last I posted. New website, as I noted. I am trying to figure out a way to get this blog on the website itself so my updates are all in one place. I’ll keep everyone posted on that.

I am progressing nicely on Drury Lane. Lacey is going places he’s never been and adjusting to a new stage in his life. I am happy with the book so far. I have a pub date in mind, which isn’t long from now, but I don’t want to invoke the jinx on this book, so I’m not saying until the book is with an editor. I want to, but I won’t.

After Drury Lane will come Murder in Grosvenor Square. I still want to take Lacey and Grenville to Egypt, since Grenville is so fond of the place, but I need to fit the book where it will naturally fall timewise in the tales, as well as logically with the development of Lacey’s life. I don’t want them to run off to Egypt just to go. It all has to make sense.

I had originally planned to write ten Lacey novels; however, now I see no reason to stop the series until it is ready to end. I think all series should end (gracefully), but only when it’s time. I keep thinking of adventures for Lacey, so I will continue to write them.

For now, Drury Lane is coming along, and I’ll announce a pub date as soon as I dare.

    EEEEEE! That all sounds great and Egypt sounds so cool. Happy dance that you keep thinking of adventures for him to go on definitely some books I’ll continue to read as long as you keep writing. Love the characters and all the mysteries I can never solve no matter how hard I try. It’s just the best, these books are one of my few joys in life so thank you.

    I cannot wait for this next chapter of Captain Lacey. I would love to see this series not end.

    Love reading the Capt. Lacey series! For years, I’ve been listening to audible books, but since I’ve discovered this series I can’t stop reading. Thank you for the enjoyment!

    I have fallen in love with this series! Finished Drury Lane and promptly went to get Grosvenor square but alas it appears I’ll have to wait patiently. Please DO NOT stop writing about Cpt Lacey. He is so very human and I love Donata. Thanks for your hard work
