Lesbian historical fiction (Lesbian Book Bingo #2)

If you haven’t heard of the Lesbian Book Bingo before now, it’s not too late to join!

Writing hours in January 2016

Two “writing hours” posts in two days… That has to be a first! :-) The first month of 2016 is over. It wasn’t the most pleasant start into the new year–the cold from hell kept me up with almost no sleep for several days in a row–but all in all, I can’t complain. I crossed the 100,000-word mark in my work-in-progress, Shaken to the Core, on the last day of January.
