Writers Bill Jones, Christene Meyers
 on the Queen Elizabeth II, researching
"Lilian's Last Dance" in 1998.

Hope you have as much fun reading it as we've had writing it, designing it, following its characters around the world, editing it with painstaking persistence and getting it properly formatted for publication.

Very happy at this moment, and grateful for all the support and encouragement.  "Lilian" has been a long time coming! Let's hope readers believe it worth the wait and share their comments on Amazon!
So happy reading. We'll be blogging about the ups and downs of writing, researching and getting the novel into print -- from its 1997 inception to its completion last week.
COMING SATURDAY: Where we went, how we crafted the characters in "Lilian's Last Dance." We followed the action from the rain forests of Peru to the Hollywood Hills, Gertrude Stein's art salon in Paris and more. Remember to explore, learn and live. Carpe diem! Tell your friends about
