Long Live the King! A period piece of 36 chapters:

[Adopted] K, a novel of 30 chapters.

Sight Unseen, an 11 chapter novelette.

Where There's a Will, full novel of 30 chapters.

There are also two short story collections of hers:
Love Stories (7 stories): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/15473
Affinities and other stories (5 stories): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/41408

And a single short story:
Locked Doors: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/54273

I'm going to launch "K", but I'll leave this list here to come back to...

I would love to read Locked Doors. I'm a noobie and I feel that a short work would be a perfect place to start.

Thank you

PLease please do the 1 minute test and maybe a part of a group project first. We want everyone to succeed , and keep recording and we know that over 90% of newbies who jump straight in do not finish it , often only managing a very short introduction if that. You may be the exception , but even world famous singers do a "sound check" in a new place. And there are a few new things to learn about uploading and how we do things here that it's nice to know about before so you can concentrate on your solo.
When you are ready , its about 18000 words which should be about 2 hours finished product , so it would be a good start.
