Here are some of my research and inspiration books for my novel-in-progress, working title Armed in Her Fashion. Most of my books for this are on my Kindle, but these are my paper ones.
Today I passed the 50,000-word mark. (Coincidentally on the last day of November, but I cannot claim NaNoWriMo victory, as I came in to November at 31,000 words.)
I write spare first drafts, so I’m already into the final third, plot-wise, but it’ll be at least another 20,000 words or so before I hit The End and start rewriting.
