The Final Lap

I've just received the clean edited version of the MS for A Baltic Affair and must now go through it myself to agree the changes and alterations that have been made between myself and the editor. I have no doubt it will be OK, but one has to check. Possibly the best compliment the editor could give is to add with her report "I really enjoyed working on your book and I loved the story as a whole." It can't get much better than that I think. Now for the last hurdle and it will be in print.

Book Description:

Captain Petroc Gray, commander of the ship-rigged sloop of war, HMS Kestrel, is drawn into diplomacy, intrigue, and espionage when he rescues the Freiherr von Dieffenbach and his family off the island of Rügen in the Baltic. The Freiherr is an important and valuable connection in the struggle to beat the Napoleonic Continental blockade of British trade, and his daughter, Silke, is a delightful young woman with a quick wit, brilliant intelligence, and a keen eye for observing the events unfolding around them. The ever-changing political alliances of the Northern European and Scandinavian states—war, sea battles, storms, death, and Napoleon’s “hundred days” leading to the defeat at Waterloo—all conspire to frustrate Petroc’s intention to seek Silke’s hand in marriage, right to the last. But Petroc isn’t one to be easily defeated, whether he is navigating the open seas or matters of the heart, and Silke stands bright and strong in his life like a beacon in a safe harbour.
