Yes, the manuscript for the third Lady Frances book is already with my publisher. "Death at the Emerald" takes place in Edwardian London's lively theatre world and the very beginnings of the British film industry. It will be out later this year. It will eventually appear on Goodreads, and I'll also be making announcements on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ladyfrancesf...

Thank you again.(less)

Edwardian: On the Cusp of the Modern Era

We look at the first seasons of Upstairs/Downstairs or Downton Abbey and think the Edwardian Era was all about butlers and fox hunting and dressing for dinner. But a lot of modern things were happening:

* Einstein published the theory of special relativity in 1905.
* The dreadnought, the first modern battleship, was launched in 1906.
* The Wright Brothers fly their plane in 1903.
* The Automobile Asso Read more of this blog post »

Raymond Chandler
“down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world.

“He will take no man’s money dishonestly and no man’s insolence without a due and dispassionate revenge. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be very sorry you ever saw him.

“The story is this man’s adventure in search of a hidden truth, and it would be no adventure if it did not happen to a man fit for adventure. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in.”
Raymond Chandler
