Hi after a long time

Hi there fiction blog readers,

it's been a long time. I'm still writing and working on stories and I just can't stop writing about disabled male protagonists 😉 and the women who adore them. 😍 To say the least, life has been a doozy for a while, lots of stuff going on in the world and I definitely think it has dramatically affected people. 

I'm almost finished with this story and have worked on it for at least two years if not longer. It's different from everything I've written and published so far. It also involves much research about certain historic events and political structures. My regular readers who enjoyed my other stories may be disappointed with this and if you are, I'm sorry this is so different. I promise I'll try to work on something more familiar once this story is done. I plan on self-publishing it hopefully in the spring and have other ideas in my head and some works in progress already. 

This story takes place in the early '80s, so between 1981 and 1982 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. From a young age, I've always had a fascination with Northern Ireland, not sure why that is, and have read a lot about it and all the things that happened there over the centuries. I've tried as much as possible to be truthful and correct in historic and landmark descriptions. You'll see that I'm using a slightly different dialogue between my characters, trying to stay true to how people there talk. I've also inserted some footnotes explaining some expressions you may not be familiar with. I've also tried to stay true to location descriptions like streets and landmarks.

This story is more than just a simple romance for devotees. I'm not sure what will come out of this story. I've been sitting over it for a long time and it has taken much of my energy. Somehow it was important to me to write this, I really don't know why. Again, it's different than what I've done so far, but I hope it's not too unusual and can maybe find its place in our sub-genre of romance involving disabled characters. 

So, I'm sorry if you are "weirded out" by it, but I hope some of you will still enjoy it. Let me know if you do. This first chapter is pretty long already. If there is enough interest, I may post another chapter in a week or two. I also hope I'm doing it right here, it's been so long since I posted here on the Blog.

Thank you to everyone who's been out there buying my novels on Amazon. You mean so much to me. Find me out there on Amazon and Instagram Dani Deveaux. 

Hugs, Dani

Love in Troubled Times
