Five Secret Hints About Heather Webb’s Next Book

This week at The Debutante Ball, we’ve been talking about our next projects. Since I can’t officially say much yet, I want YOU to guess what my next topic is. Here are a few hints:


1. It takes place in France

2. It’s not the same time period as Becoming Josephine

3. Many real life people make cameos in the novel, including a certain national French hero
4. There’s lots of beautiful artistic renderings you may have heard of. Here’s just one:


5. The narrative has a way of going from light to dark and back to light again



Can you guess what I’m writing about?

Yeah, me neither, though I’m hoping to spill the beans soon.

In the meantime, I’d love to know what you would like an author to write a book about (for your reading pleasure)?

  1. OMG, you’re writing Les Miserables! 🙂

    I’m sorry to point this out, but I think your question (“In the meantime, I’d love to know what you would like to an author write a book about for your reading pleasure?”) is missing a word, possibly “ask.”

    (In my head, a whole chorus just started singing, “Can you hear the people sing…”)

      1. And thank you for not pointing out that the song is “DO you hear the people sing,” not “Can…”

        I sentence myself to ten minutes of listening to Russell Crowe. 🙂

        As for what I might ask for… I would be tempted to ask for a short parody of my writing. A friend did a three-piece parody of my stuff once, and I loved it. He first tried to claim that somebody else had written it, thinking that I’d be mad, but I thought it was fascinating. It was like hearing your own voice on tape for the first time, compared to only hearing how it sounds in your head.
