It's all good though, especially when I still get time to write and come up with a new plot idea that has me quite excited! (to be written after New Age Light, I hasten to add)
Called 'Corners of the Soul', it's a complete departure from the Lifelights (although it will have paranormal elements).
The inspiration for the story came from a recent holiday in Blagdon, North Somerset, where a combination of the views (example above) and the people gave my imagination a boost. 'Corners of the Soul' is a suspense story that starts off with a woman researching her family history, and that of the village she has just moved to (Blagdon) - from which she believes her family originally came. She's fascinated by the Church in particular, finding the members of the congregation there helpful and friendly, and starts to map the worn, yet beautiful stones within the graveyard, in the hope of finding the resting place of some of her own ancestors...
Until, that is, she comes across a tombstone with no name on it, and an inscription that changes her life:
I shall wait for you
In every corner of your soul
Silent and invisible
Until our gazes touch
And hearts connect
Keep watch, my Love
Though my life now wanes
'Til I call your name.
- What lengths would some people go to for the 'perfect' family tree?
I'll keep you posted on when this story is likely to be finished/available.
Hope everyone's Summer has been relaxing and happy... and as September wanes, with the trees starting to change colour, I'm looking forward to bright, crisp mornings, cosy reading time in the evenings, and the glory of Autumn.
