It's Coming Along

Posted on June 15, 2018 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (1)

Don't ask me how I did it, but I completed the preliminary outline for The Last Valentine. I had most of the beginning and ending in my head, and the middle chapters just flowed out of me. I'm very happy about this, but as I make a more detailed outline (lots of research needs to be done), I know I'll find plot holes that might send me whizzing in a different direction, but it 's a start. Here we go again, book number nine coming down the pike. Whee!

I've been working on my preliminary outline for The Lost Valentine, and I'm liking it so far. That redheaded gal is fun to write about. Plus I get to write about Matty Cruz again. Close to half way done. Wish me luck.

The Lost Romeo Cover & Mini-Blurb

Posted on July 27, 2017 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)

After going back and forth with titles and covers for the next book in the Carol Karuso Mystery series, I finally settled on both. I think it goes well with the first book cover, don't you? Now I just have to hurry up and finish the book. Shout out to Cover Quill for their excellent work.

Mini-Blurb: Carol Karuso has made more than her share of mistakes when it comes to picking lovers and boyfriends. When a particularly heinous womanizer from her recent past disappears, she could care less. That is until her best friend guilts her into helping his daughter look for him. Will Carol's developing skills as an investigator be enough to find this lost Romeo before he becomes a dead one?

Fallen Angel has become The Lost Rose

Though I loved the cover and title for the first Carol Karuso Mystery book, unfortunately both were confusing to readers. Many thought it was a paranormal novel about angels. My bad. So, I've retitled it and replaced the cover with something that I hope will attract readers who might be interested in a book about a redheaded detective on the trail of the lost. Hope you like it.

For fans of the cute, devoted terrier of the Matty Cruz Adventure series, this is how I envision her. If your picture of her differs, no worries. Your perception is as good as mine.
