And then in March we lost both of our cats to the ravages of age. That was a devastating blow.
One of the big stumbling blocks for the next Lotus Bay novel was the lack of a title. Yesterday morning, I was determined to assign one. First, I wrote a short description of the book. I must admit, it's not yet very good, but it was a start. And then I remembered that two years ago I put together a list of possible titles for the entire Lotus Bay series. Of course, then I had to find that list. Did I name it something easy to find? That would be a huge NO! But eventually I did find it and right at the top of the list was ...
No sooner did I make that decision than I contacted my cover artist. While I don't yet have a cover, I'm pretty sure that once I do, I'll run with the story and finish it in no time flat. (Make that 4-6 weeks ... which, when writing a book, is definitely no time flat!)
Of course, because A JUST CLAUSE comes out in paperback on May 5th, and POISONED PAGES comes out on July 10th, it means that A REEL CATCH can't come out until August. So be it. Each books deserves an opportunity to shine.
But I'm writing again and that makes me happy.
Are you happy that the 2nd full-length Lotus Bay Mystery is on the horizon?
