|The view of London from Agnes' window.|
I should have a completed first draft by mid-September and will then begin the rewriting and editing process. I've realized while writing this book how hard it will be to say goodbye to these characters that I've lived with for almost 20 years. Perhaps that's why writing this book has been so much more difficult than Conquering Venus and Remain In Light.
I wrote the first scenes of Leaving Paris sitting at the kitchen table in my friend/fellow writer Agnes Meadows' flat with its magnificent view of the London skyline occasionally distracting me. That was the summer of 2012. In a perfectly synchronistic, wibbly wobbly, timey wimey twist, I will write the final scenes at that same table in just a few weeks. Next spring, I'll head to Paris as I'm finishing the rewrite and edit.
If you haven't read the first two books in The Venus Trilogy, now is the perfect time to pick up the paperbacks or eBooks.
