Because I have two books that will be appearing shortly, plus other publishing work—I’ve been going this way and that. It’s been important to try and prioritize, not always easy.
My next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery is due out this month, I’ve seen the cover and approved it. I’ve a blog tour coming up starting in October—so I’ve spent lots of time gathering hosts and thinking up topics to write about.
The first of the blogs are:
October 26 http://jlgregerblog.blogspot.com/ Character Development
October 27 https://lornacollins-author.blogspot.com A Sane Person Would Have Given Up
October 28 https://www.susantuttlewriters.com Why I Love Speaking Engagements
October 29 https:amymbennetbooks.blogspot.com Where Some of the Ideas Came From
October 30 https.www.jtzortman.wordpress.com/ Rocky Bluff the Setting for Tangled Webs
The short blurb for Tangled Webs is: Too many people are telling lies: The husband of the murder victim and his secretary, the victim’s boss and co-workers in the day care center, her stalker, and Detective Milligan’s daughter.
October is a month of public appearances too. October 1, I’ll be speaking with other authors in front of librarians. On the 13th, I’ll be at the Great Valley Bookfest in Manteca, and I’ll be on a panel at 3 about Getting Published. On the 14th, at 6 p.m. I’ll be over on the coast with other crime writers speaking to group of retirees.
That’s not all, there is a lot going on with my Deputy Tempe Crabtree series too. The next mystery will be coming out soon too—Spirit Wind. The publisher is redoing the first five books in the series, and they’ve been reedited too, so I’ve had to go over the galley proofs for them.
Here’s a sneak peak of the cover:
At the moment, I haven’t made any special plans for the debut of that book, though I certainly will when it comes closer to time.
And in the meantime, as if I didn’t have enough to do, I’ve been working on a plot for the next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery.
One thing about being so busy, I am never bored.
