My Snot of a Muse Is Back

So, I have the kind of brain that hears a song or sees a picture and suddenly a love scene pops into my head, and then have to write an entire book just to use that scene. I swear, my Muse is cackling into her mojito right now.

An explanation: the combination of watching Queen Charlotte (the Bridgerton prequel) and hearing Loreena McKennit’s “Mummer’s Dance” has inspired my one and only quasi-Regency romance. No, I do not have a completion date on this because I need to finish Crystal Blade, then get to work on High Tide and Hurricane Warning (Olympic Cove 5 and 6) before OC fans riot (hi, Susan!). And because this is so far outside my wheelhouse, not to mention mixing and matching genres (I’m calling it a quasi-Regency paranormal romcom) I won’t be making it widely available. It’s going to be only for newsletter subscribers and members of my FB reader’s group. But I will be picking at this story when I can because my brain will not bloody well leave me alone until I promise to do something with it.

Oh, the story? When newly divorced librarian Amelia Barker takes a job managing an occult library in a grand old country house, the last thing she expects is to meet the ghost of a Regency duke.
Actually, no—the last thing she expects is for the ghostly Sir Robert Wycliff to be so damned charming and attractive. Amelia knows she should be helping him cross over, but she soon finds herself falling for him instead. If that wasn’t problematic enough, Amelia also needs to deal with an eccentric noblewoman-cum-relative, a neurospicy occult expert who may or may not be courting her, and issues with her overbearing ex-husband. As for Robert, he has his own problems that he needs to solve before he can be released from his current condition. Can Amelia and Robert find a path to a HEA that doesn’t require Amelia dying? Let’s find out.

In other news I would also like to announce that as of today I have made my first $0.03 on Kindle Vella. I assume someone’s free tokens ran out and they had to buy some to keep reading. Huzzah!

About Nicola Cameron

Nicola Cameron has had some interesting adventures in her life -- ask her sometime about dressing up as Tietania, Queen of the Bondage Fairies. When not writing, she wrangles cats, makes dolls of dubious and questionable identity, and thanks almighty Cthulhu that she doesn’t have to work for a major telecommunications company any more (because there’s BDSM, and then there’s just plain torture...).
