I just signed the contract for Seldom Traveled last week. I wasn’t worried about it because I’d already received the edits, gone over them, and sent the manuscript back–so I knew the contract was coming. Looking back, I think that’s happened other times.
I’ve been working on a new blog tour for the book–and found I’ve kind of run out of fresh ideas to write about so I asked for help from some of the hosts who agreed to have me on their blogs. (Some already have specific topics they wanted, but not all.)
I’m going to do a different contest this time. Instead of having the person who leaves the most comments having their name used for a character in the next book , I’ll give away either a print copy or a Kindle copy of an earlier Tempe book of the winners’ choice. And no, I didn’t put the apostrophe in the wrong place, there will be multiple winners–picked from those who leave the most comments.
I don’t have a cover to share as yet. I do hope the same artist who’s done most of my covers will do this one, and I did give a suggestion as to what I thought it should be.
This has been a busy time for me, (I know, I always say that), but I’m preparing for the Public Safety Writers Conference in mid July, writing a new Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, and I always have lots of other tasks on my “to-do” list.
This is the blurb for Seldom Traveled:
The tranquility of the mountain community of Bear Creek is disrupted by a runaway fugitive, a vicious murderer, and a raging forest fire. Deputy Tempe Crabtree is threatened by all three.
And as my great-granddaughter is saying here, “I did it!”
