Dear Regency Lovers:
We hope this letter finds you well. It has been over a year since we last wrote, promising to update you with any news about the Sutton spin-off novel. It is now with great pleasure and excitement that we wish to inform you of our progress: we have just completed the most recent draft of the manuscript!
We also have a title for the novel: Lady Lavender. The current version consists of three volumes (anything else would be scandalous!), forty-three chapters, and a little over 100,000 words.
Now that we have a decent draft (the earlier ones were rather shocking), we will proceed with the following steps:
- Create artwork and supplementary/digital content
- Receive feedback from beta-readers and editors
- Make final revisions based on said feedback (we are aiming for late 2019)
- Launch a crowd-funding campaign (late 2019)
We are still tossing around ideas about ‘digitalising’ the novel and including some extra content. Some of these include:
- Illustrated scenes and related artwork
- Maps and floor plans
- A mini glossary for all the references and allusions
Thank you for all your patience and support over the years. We are (super uber duper) excited about Lady Lavender, and we look forward to sharing the novel with you! Until then, we wish you health and happiness, and remain yours, &c &c,
Jenny, Melody, and Samantha
