Status: finished a scene yesterday
Second time around, not a lot to say about research except it is my favorite part about writing historical romance. It is so much fun to find the trivia in history and weave a story around that event. At the moment I am writing a contemporary. Not so much in my element, but it is fun to toss in current slang and things from the present. I don't have to verify. Yay...
This week Genene must have sent me some positive rake (sp) because I finally received my reversion of rights. When I asked Kate Duffy at Kensington for reversion of Dakota's Bride and My Angel I received my rights in two weeks. Piece of Cake? This time I have been trying since september 2010. I have written emails, support tickets, registered letters and until I put attorney in my last email, I received little in the form of answers. So I am happy, although I believe I am going to have another 90 days wait. Still, I'm happy about all of this.
So, I suppose research can come in many forms. Could be for your book, could be for enhancing your career. Have any of you had horror stories getting your rights back? Or did the house you were published under act professionally as Kenington did?
