Anyway, I have always wanted to write a historical piece, but have had a hard time thinking of a story line that had a sexy love story with slavery as a backdrop...but never doubt my inner freak...I think I've come up with some pretty juicy ideas.
My Lover's Keeper is set in 1810 New Orleans. It will show the role of race on love and friendship. It follows 3 women, Vivienne, a French heiress; Lisette, a kept mulatto woman, and Suzanne, a sassy African slave. Each of them is strong, in their own way, but together, they are lethal.
I always start by getting a picture that matches my vision for my character. Today, I spent most of my time, on character sketches for both major and minor characters. Also worked on the entire plot outline and individual chapter outlines by scene.
I didn't think I would ever write historical...but it's coming together.
Oh, and a side note...I added a link to Good Reads...add me as a friend, I'd love to know what you are reading.
