Where the Light Enters

The second novel in this newer series is called Where the Light Enters. And I’m still writing it. I hope to be finished by the end of the summer 2017. Then it’s up to the publisher to get it ready and out there, which does take a while.

It’s very gratifying that you are here looking for information about the next book. Please be assured I’m writing as fast as I can. Really, I promise.

This page is the gateway to something more like a wiki, which is generally understood to be a community-generated and maintained website where information is shared. This wiki is a little different: I set it up to organize all the research materials I’ve collected while writing The Gilded Hour. It has many wiki-like features, in that topics relevant to the novel are posted to pages, which are in turn grouped into subject areas. Links in the text will take you to the relevant page. Try putting the word ‘Vanderbilt’ into the search box and see what wiki articles show up. If you are interested in getting involved in the evolution of this wiki, please contact me.

On FaceBook there is my  personal page (if you must know about my politics) but more relevant and possibly interesting is the Sara Donati page on Facebook and the Booktalk page for The Gilded Hour.

The Wilderness series novels and the Rosina Lippi novels are also discussed there on occasion in a dedicated chat room/discussion group (located here). You will have to register to participate.

Please feel free to get in touch here, there or really anywhere. I’m really pleased to hear from readers.
