Teacup Tuesday: Positively Paisley

I am a sucker for chintz-patterned china. Today's pattern is Shelley's "Paisley Gilt Chintz." Wouldn't you just love to have a nice cuppa tea from this cup?

Teacup Tuesday. And today's cup is ...

In my newsletter last week, I asked readers to share their favorite teacup patterns. This one is "Dainty Blue" by Shelley, and is collected by Suzanne V. of Mission Viejo, CA. Isn't' it lovely?

Victoria Square Returns!


Like the picture says, Victoria Square is moving from the back burner to the front.

The series has been languishing while I've turned my attention to other things ... like writing The Booktown Mysteries, the Jeff Resnick Mysteries, the Lotus Bay Mysteries, and the Tales of Telenia adventure-fantasy series ... but readers have been begging for more Victoria Square and I'm happy to finally be able to oblige.

Cozy mystery author Laurie Cass and I will be collaborating on the series.  The next book is already in the works, and should be finished by year-end. Now we're waiting to hear when the series will be put back on the publishing schedule.  We're anticipating 2017 -- but have no fear, we'll let you know if it will be any sooner.

Laurie and I have been friends for years and we're excited to begin this journey together. Check out Laurie's website and if you haven't already read her wonderful Bookmobile Cat Mysteries, I hope you'll give them a try.

Claw_foot_bathtub5BTW, this is my inspiration picture for the next book, which I've tentatively called Dead, Bath, and Beyond.  (But don't count on that being the actual title.)
