Welcome to my home page, where you can get the latest scoop!
The 5th Peri Minneopa Mystery is deep within the editor-editee process. My lovely editor, Jennifer, has given me notes for the content edit, and as the editee, I am currently making the changes. And yes, I made that word–editee–up.
In July, the manuscript will return to Jenny for line edit, then back to me for a final (ha ha, as if) update before I begin the process of formatting and proofing for each platform, scheduling a specific launch date, advance publicity, marketing plan, yadda yadda yadda.
Oh, and most importantly, we have a title. Can I get a drum roll, please? The 5th Peri Minneopa Mystery is:
P.I. Peri Minneopa has had enough. She’s closing her business, marrying her detective boyfriend, and settling down to a life of ease–until her brother shows up, accused of a murder he swears he didn’t commit. Now she’s back in the thick of things, investigating the death of an engineer who may have been stealing techno-secrets from other companies. Her relationship with her brother is an icy one, at best, and she struggles with her ambivalence, as well as her desire to leave investigative work behind. Digging around in people’s lives is reasonably easy, but when the bullets start flying, will Peri be able to keep her promise?
WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH THAT DRAGON MANUSCRIPT?
It’s draggin’. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I’m editing that as well. So, yes, I’m editing two books. This is why I look crazy. I am crazy.
Tune in next time to find out more.
I did star in a commercial.
It’s about writers, for writers, advertising the Southern California Writers Conference. We have three conferences, San Diego in February, Irvine in September, and a new, intensive mini-conference in SunRiver, Oregon (I’ve been to this place–it’s fabulous). Let this motivate you to check out the conference–I’ll be there, teaching a workshop or two!
