Evil - an Adult Fairy Tale Episode Three

Evil - an Adult Fairy Tale Episode Three

April showers may bring may flowers, but they also create a wonderful atmosphere in which to write.  Thunderstorms can be a bit tricky, unless my laptop battery is charged.  Water falling seems to stimulate the senses, which explains why, when I’m in the shower or doing the dishes, book ideas drift into my head.  Try it sometime.  Stuck with a bit of writer’s block?  Do the dishes.  Better yet, do mine.

Aside from subscribing to the Tom Sawyer method of getting chores done, I’m busy with writing book 21 of the Haunted Series which has a name now, The Return.  The Red Pen has her head down and has warned the Beta Reader to get his reading glasses ready.  Still no firm date yet, but I’ll let you know when I know.

In the meanwhile, pull out an umbrella and venture out.  Jump in a puddle, and get those boots wet.  Life is what you make of it.

Here is episode three of Evil.

Evil -an Adult Fairy Tale Episode Two

Here we are in mid-April.  Editing continues on High Court.  I’m a third of the way through Book 21’s first draft.  My taxes have been sent off, so my mind is clear.  It’s tough to be creative when the chore list is high.  And then there is the beautiful place in which I live.  Fortunately for me, my new home presents me with ideas.  The walks outside feed my imagination and ease away the cramps I get from sitting and typing all day.

Evil’s episode two continues my adult fairytale.  The next three episodes should be arriving a week apart after this.  And then quite possibly a Cid Garret P.I. book will be released.

Enjoy.

March Updates!

The first draft of High Court, the second Cid Garret P.I. series novel, is finished, and I have handed it over to The Red Pen.  She will start the editing process soon.

High Court

In this paranormal adventure, Cid is taking on a malevolent spirit at an old motor court renovation.  I have brought back Kiki, Walrus, Scrub, and Faye to help solve the tragic cold case of a why a whole family was murdered in 1964.  The ghost is seeking justice for her and her dead children, and she doesn’t care who gets hurt along the way.  Cid must solve the crime before he has any hope of resting her angry spirit.

The idea for doing a motor court renovation came to me this past summer as hubby and I traveled up to Mackinac Island.  There were so many small motels along the way.  I wondered what story each of them had to share.  One night, I had this dream.  It involved a gallery, an old motel, and several visions of a murder.  When I woke, I knew that I had to find a way of incorporating the dream into a book.  I thought about Cid.  He’s our everyman: if every man had super hearing, a handsome face, and killer body.  (Phew, is it hot in here?)

Writing fiction in today’s environment is interesting.  How much of the news filters into what an author writes about?  How can one be fair when emotions are high?  How much has changed between High Court’s cold case in 1964, and how much has remained the same?  So many questions, but not all of them need to be answered.  I had to remind myself that my job is to entertain you readers.  After rereading High Court, I believe I managed to do so.

What’s next?


January Update & Cover Showdown

January Update & Cover Showdown

Presently, I’m busy writing the next Cid Garrett P.I. novel High Court.  Even though the events of the real world keep seeping in, I’m concentrating on my job which is to entertain you all, hopefully taking you away from the problems at hand, if just for a moment.

My graphics team has come up with two covers for you to vote on.  I know you’re sick of voting, but I’m sick of the green cover for Darker than Dark, so indulge me.  We will be releasing a paperback and an audiobook early this year for the fourth novel of the Haunted Series, and I wanted a new cover.  I couldn’t decide, so I’m going to ask you readers to help me.
