The Birth of a New Book

Unresolved is number 13 in the Rocky Bluff P.D. series, a book that I feared would never become a reality.

The publisher of the series suffered a serious illness, one she is recovering from now, but the publishing company has been put on hold for the time being. I continued writing Unresolved even though I wasn’t sure what might happen. I’m compelled to finish what I start, especially when it comes to a book I’m writing.

One of the publisher’s former writers offered to publish through his new publisher those books that were in the queue with the option that the author could return to the former publisher when and if possible. When I finished Unresolved and had it edited, I contacted this author and asked if he’d be interested in my book.

He said, “Yes,” and things have moved along quickly since then.

Today, I’m going to share the  cover and the blurb.Unresolved

#13 in the Rocky Bluff P.D. series, Unresolved Blurb:

Rocky Bluff P.D. is underpaid and understaffed and when two dead bodies turn up, the department is stretched to the limit. The mayor is the first body discovered, the second an older woman whose death is caused in a bizarre manner. Because no one liked the mayor, including his estranged wife and the members of the city council, the suspects are many, but each one has an alibi.

What this means, of course, is that I’ve had to speed up promotion plans. My first thought was a blog tour and I reached out to folks who have blogs and asked to be a guest. The tour will start on April 23rd.

I already have some in-person events scheduled–and whether or not I’ll do a special book  launch I haven’t decided.

In the meantime, I’m writing another Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery.

This has been a busy, but exciting time.
