Another Round Of Edits (AROE) ~ BARON OF EMBERLY: Chapter Two


On to the next installment of “Another Round Of Edits (AROE)” in which this author begins the process of editing the full manuscript of Baron Of Emberly–108,215 words to be exact. The following is from the first–there will be more–and most intense round of edits that ensures BOE is fit and trim for her mid-December release:


England, 1334 ~ In the second book of The Feud series, Baron Magnus Verdun is a warrior whose handsome face gives little indication of the darkness he struggles to contain. While pursuing the murderous brigands who plague his lands, he becomes the unwitting savior of the woman the king has decreed he wed—the reckless Lady Thomasin, whose very presence threatens his carefully ordered life. And more so when she proves outspoken beyond what is required of a dutiful wife. Can he tame this woman whose willful ways ought to offend, but instead captivate? More, dare he allow her near and risk exposing the secret that could push her away?


Despite efforts to make a proper lady of her, the illegitimate Thomasin de Arell knows she is no match for the Baron of Emberly. Though she expects her new husband will think her beneath him, she is unprepared when he insists on separate chambers. When he also demands she control her behavior, the spurned Thomasin rebels—and unknowingly becomes the pawn of forces determined to further the feud. But upon finding herself in Magnus’s arms, she discovers he is not as indifferent as he would have her believe. And when she glimpses his torment, she is determined to shine light on his darkness. Will he let her in? Or will their enemies use the distrust between husband and wife for their own ends?

In this sequel to the bestselling medieval romance, Baron Of Godsmere, join Baron Verdun and his lady as they discover that true love seeks first the soul, and is as easily seen in the dark as in the light.

    My goodness!! I’d have such a hard time editing. I would be hard put to take any hard earned words out. I would be thinking “I sweated blood, sweat and tears over those words, and now I need to cut them?? YIKES!!!” I guess that’s what makes you the excellent writer you are – you can do the hard part of correcting or editing yourself. Maybe that’s a good lesson to learn – – not only as a writer, but as a Christian also. Good for you Tam!
