I'm on Twitter

I have finally got organised enough to set up a Twitter account. 
If you're on Twitter, come and say hello! 

My user name is @LisaHenryOnline

You can also click on the button on the right, which will take you right there. 

So far I'm still finding my way, and, like the new kid at school, I'm not feeling very talkative yet. I'm sure that will change!

Working on the next book...

I'm not going to call it writer's block just yet, because it's not that I don't have an idea, it's that I have three of them and they are all competing for attention. 

There is sci-fi. And I love world-building, and I love the characters, and I love the endless possibilities of sci-fi. 

There is 1920's England. I love the societal conventions, the fashions, plus this has the added bonus of seances and Spiritualism! 

There is 1880's England. And I have had so much fun researching this one! Opium dens and gaslights and the Limehouse... the only downside is those walrus moustaches. Not a great look. 

Also, I've found this great site: Victorian Gentlemen in Love. This is definitely NSFW! 

This picture looks more Edwardian than Victorian, but isn't it lovely?

The more I look at this picture, the more I fall in love.
