Revised Manuscript is DONE

With these weird times, and my infrequent visits to Paris, I have not felt motivated to write new blog posts, but hope that now that we are seeing a little light at the end of the COVID tunnel, life can start to return to normal, or whatever the new normal is.

Big news for me is that I am working with a new, terrific editor named Sarah Branham on my third book and have just submitted my revised manuscript to her. I have learned so much over this last 18 months, and I hope she sees the results in this latest version.

Here’s a quick ‘elevator pitch’ summary to give you an idea of what’s to come:


Jane has begun to feel restless in her picture-perfect life in Boston, and the refrain of an old Peggy Lee song, “Is That All There Is” keeps echoing inside her head. She always thought she’d return to Paris, where she’d spent a memorable ten months her junior year, but somehow instead she found herself employed, then married, then a mother, in a life that offered stability, but resembled a hamster wheel in its lack of adventure or excitement.

Is this really what she wants to do for the rest of her life? A crisis moment of realizing things will never change sends her fleeing to a borrowed apartment in Paris, to spend three months to prove to herself she made the right decision all those years ago. Or did she?

  1. Marty – I’m looking forward to reading your newest book and traveling virtually to Paris. A trip is long-overdue so having a book to read that transports me to France to find out what Jane discovers will be a welcome diversion. Can’t wait!

    1. Maria, Thanks for your kind words! Hope we can both get there in person soon.
