Now, I've something more to celebrate! DEADLY STAR is available on Amazon.com for pre-order in Kindle format.
I've been spending hours trying to put together a DEADLY STAR business card and rack card. I'm fairly experienced at creating these things but doing it on-line in someone else's template has frustrated me. I'd get one of the sides done, then it would disappear if I tried to go back and adjust a font style or color. I can't tell you how many times I re-created the same image. I gave up last night about midnight. I'll go back at it tomorrow or the next day when I've had a chance to cool down.
On another front, Carolyn Haines invited me to participate in a "new authors panel" at her Daddy's Girls Weekend writers and readers conference in April. I'l be part of a Q and A with three other new Mobile authors. I'm looking forward to that...join us if you're able. You can check out the particulars at www.daddysgirlsweekend.com
Carolyn's latest book is THE DARKLING, written under her pseudonym of R.B. Chesterton. It's coming out in April.
I'm back at work on an as-yet unnamed thriller/romance. (I've changed the presumptive title three times already, so now it's XXX.) It's a completed manuscript, and I'm in one of many edit cycles. When I get this edit done, the next steps will be to have it beta read and another edit before I submit it anywhere. If I can get it done in a timely fashion, I'm thinking I'll try Crimson Romance again. They only have two options...yes or no...and neither one would hurt my feelings. (hah!)
I have another work-in-progress (five chapters in), and I'm excited about this one. It's a story about a newly minted private investigator who's set up shop in Mobile, Alabama. She's not only a new PI, she's a yankee new to the Gulf Coast. Lots of opportunity for conflict there...plus there's an off-screen murder.
Okay, back to the stories.
You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I'll try to do the same.
