Taking quite a bit of work this one. I haven't written historical faction before. I asked a few people to give me a critique.
Afterwards, (picks self off floor sobbing), massive re-write.
Not a history book -stop trying to teach people history.
OK I can do that.
Stick to the story.
Yes I can do that.
Adjust the punctuation.
I forced myself to do that, but I like my misuse of punctuation.
It's my style - like constantly splitting infinitives. Ok, I fixed that as well.
Shorter sentences. Yes.
Adjust timeline. Really? do I have to? Sighs - done it.
It's looking good. No really it is. Shocked myself.
So here's the cover:-
Take out the real life - like going to the toilet -medical/surgical details - war wounds etc.
No. Not happening.
One women's life during the English Civil War, loosely based on the life of Anne Halkett.
Nearly nearly done!
