Alright, y’all!  Abigail Spencer's last new Diamond Gothic chapter (before we three authoresses go on a short summer hiatus), Part 15, goes live tomorrow on HelloGiggles!

So.  Why DIDN’T Teddy Wentworth show up to the party? Does it have anything to do with Eve– or avoiding Annabell?  Maybe.  Or… maybe not? And what ABOUT our Miss Annabell… and the many forks in her road?

A definite, fateful new direction IS set in this chapter for our beautiful anti-heroine/heroine, Miss Annabell Jones Mason Hayworth… 

"Flapper Romance"

So while we’re waiting for our regretfully-delayed Part 13 (sigh… sorry again about that, everyone), want something to ponder?

Another clue linking Eve to the deepening mystery of the Masons (and her reason for being here at the mansion now) can be found back in Part 4.  Look carefully… any guesses?  ;)

Another new Diamond Gothic installment, brought to us by our talented Bethany Joy, premieres on Sunday, June 3rd!

Which begs the question… what DID Eve come to the Mason mansion for, if not to ruin Annabell’s life?


From The Desk Of

"But Eve hadn’t come to the Mason house to ruin Annabell’s day (though it was a nice perk, as far as she was concerned).  She hadn’t come to flirt with Teddy or chit-chat with Uncle Walter.  Eve had come for only one reason…."

–– Part 13 of Diamond Gothic by Bethany Joy Lenz

"And then, she found it.  The nothingness…. and it was getting closer.  A chill shot up her spine."

– From Bethany Joy Lenz's Part 10 of Diamond Gothic

"Diamond Gothic Sunday" tomorrow at HelloGiggles!

So, what happened to those dead coyotes?  

*We* certainly haven’t forgotten about them…

"Eve was going to have get smart.  Not just loud.  Annabell did not realize what kind of redhead she was dealing with–– and Annabell didn’t realize she was dealing with one."

What We Know (Thus Far) About Annabell

1.)  She’s a normal 18-and-a-half-year-old teenager (with all the normal ups & downs that come with the age and being a girl), with the added (dis)advantages of great wealth, beauty, fashion, social status… and… a terrible secret she’s been keeping silent on since she was an 8-year-old child.  (See DG’s Part 7.)

2.)  She has a crush on Teddy Wentworth… and used to have one on his older brother, Jason.  (See DG’s Part 3 & 4.)

3.)  Somehow, the threat she makes on her pesky kid-brother (about the coyotes in DG’s Part 2), lands on her doorstep and at her brother’s feet.  (See DG’s Part 5.)  

4.)  It seems like she actually has *some* affection for her ginger-haired brother (see DG’s Part 6), even though he’s a devil who makes her life EVER-so-challenging…  

5.)  She loves her dad (see DG’s Part 3), but clearly struggles with his alcoholism & secrecy (DG’s Part 8).

6.)  She defers to her mother, and bows to her mother’s will, at least as much as she loves and/or challenges her.  (See DG’s Part 7 & 8.)  

7.)  She has some serious issue with dear ol’, siren-haired cousin Eve Harling.  (DG’s Part 7 & 8.)

8.)  She somehow ends up as a Mrs. Hayworth… with a bullet in her belly.  (DG’s Part 1.)

What else have *you* spotted & summed up?

What happened in 1919?

So…  Any guesses as to what Annabell’s big secret is?  What do you think happened back when Annabell was just a wee 8-year-old?
