As of March, 2019, The Doubloon became the working title of my historical novel in progress. Set in the Carolinas in the 1760s, it is the story of a widow who is accused of killing her husband. She simultaneously works to prove her innocence, looks for a new husband, and struggles with inheriting a slave after being against slavery all her life.
I finished the first rough draft on May 1, 2019.
It’s July 2019 now. I continue to tweak my manuscript. I’m working my way through it scene-by-scene and doing a more detailed scene outline than I did before writing the book. Since this is my first novel, I think it will be beneficial for me to get my completed scene outline critiqued by a professional. That’s what I’m working toward this summer.
