I've been hinting about it ... but the truth is I've had a hard time writing the next Booktown Mystery. It wasn't that my characters weren't cooperating, it was just that I had so much on my plate that writing wasn't my top priority for the past nine or ten months.
I feel terrible that I turned in my book six months late, but my editor is a terrific guy. I assured him that I would have it to him in a time frame that would still work and he trusted me to deliver it.
I sent the book in last week, and I anticipate feedback and/or a copy edit in December.
The second piece of good news is that Title Wave won't be coming out with "the pack" on the first Tuesday in June, but a week later on June 14th. What does that mean? Maybe nothing ... maybe something good. I'll just have to wait to see how it flies. But I love the story and I've seen the pencil sketch of the cover and I have a very good feeling about this book. (And I hope you will, too.)
I'll share the cover as soon as I get it.
