Cover for Rudolph

I'm excited about the cover of my new book. My publisher just sent me the proofs and the cover art. One more step toward the release date. Looks like it should be ready in time for Christmas. Hooray!

Looking for Information on a Publisher?

In doing some research for a speech I am giving on Tuesday, I stumbled across two informative sites: Predators & Editors and Absolute Write, check out the forum water cooler there.

Between these two sites you can probably get the skinny on just about every agent, editor, and publisher you have ever heard of. Before you sign that contract, do your research.

Change of plans

I had planned to work on revisions to The Bed & Breakfast but the characters from The Hexagon Murders have been clamoring for my attention. A movie, I watched last night inspired more research which created another direction for the plot. I believe it will be a much better novel as a result. I am excited to get to work on it this week. Maybe the voices in my head will stop shouting at me when it is finally rewritten. I never did like the ending anyway. I have a feeling, I'm going to love this one. Hope the characters do too.

As of about an hour ago, a fourth book has been accepted by my publisher. This one is book 2 of the Sleuth & Scribe series. "The Car Lot" This week I will start revising Book 3, "The Bed & Breakfast".

I'm looking forward to having all five books revised and accepted for publication so I can finish the novel I started writing several months ago. After that I may take a break or I may write a sequel to Flickertail & Paint.

I'm riding this wave as long as I can.
