Eyewitness, and Booktown #10, Title Wave), but usually by now I've written a LOT more. For the past couple of years, I've written two to three books, plus short stories and novellas. My Mum dying kind of put the kabash on that. (And I know she would not be happy about that. Every day she used to ask, "Did you get your words today?" because I have a daily quota.)
Eyewitness or Title Wave, but they were very difficult stories to write. Both my main characters have to face their grief at a time when I was facing my own. They say you should write what you know.
Storytellers Unlimited anthology, Summer Magic, called Sweet Dreams. (And I'd better finish it fast because it comes out on December 27th.) The book is the first in a planned series set in a cozy inn on Martha's Vineyard. Three authors and three different stories about Blythe Cove Manor and featuring their mascot, Martha the cat!
I'm also working on the next Jeff Resnick Mystery. So far, I'm calling it Unfinished Business. It's been on the back burner for at least the last ten years (yes, that long), and I thought I knew how it was going to start. In fact, I'd written the beginning of the book. But when I started actually filling in the details, I knew I had to toss out 90% of what I'd already done and start fresh.
The best part about writing these two stories? I'm having FUN! I hope it will show in the finished projects, too.
Does either story sound like something you'd like to read?
P.S. I'm going to reveal the cover for Title Wave in my next newsletter. (Next week!) If you haven't signed up, feel free to visit any of my websites to do so:
