Well, it’s finished. For how long, I don’t know. The book ended up over fifteen thousand words long, with over two hundred endnotes. Some references I couldn’t find so I rewrote the passage, but I found some new stuff as well. It’s hard to know where to stop. I have found a sweet story about Alina since, and I don’t know whether to put that in as well. Maybe I’ll blog it.
I have also amended the title to better reflect what it is about. It is now called ‘The White Lady of Oystermouth and the Fall of a King’.
Anyway, for now, it has gone off to the kind people at the Historical Association for comment, and to my husband, who has not read it before. He is my sternest critic. So watch this space.
