Claws for Alarm has a
Murder Most Maine!
I’m happy to report that after several weeks of more or less constant work, I’m on the home stretch of Murder Most Maine, the third book in the Gray Whale Inn series, and Running with the Pack, the third book in the Tales of an Urban Werewolf series, is finished. Save for revisions, that is.
I was going to post both covers today (I got both of them last week), but the colors keep coming up reversed for On the Prowl, so it’ll have to wait until tomorrow (hubby says he can fix it tonight). Here, however, is the cover of Murder Most Maine — complete with a lighthouse, which I got to incorporate into the plot this time. There’s a story behind this cover that I will share at some point, incidentally, but not just yet. Maybe once the book is out, and I’m celebrating with too much champagne…
On a completely different note, I was noticing yesterday that many of the letters on my keyboard seem to be vanishing. (Perhaps this is connected to my work schedule of the past six weeks.) So far I’ve lost A, S, D, C, L, and half of M. The benefit of this is that my children are less inclined to ‘borrow’ my computer, as it’s hard to type when you can’t find almost 25% of the alphabet. But I do worry that perhaps I’ve worn out something on the inside, as well. The question is, should I replace the laptop before it crashes? Or keep backing it up and pray that it won’t die at a crucial point?
Like, say, the next two weeks?
Okay, back to the salt mines. I hope all is well with you and your writing, and as soon as I get the color issue resolved, I’ll post the cover of Running with the Pack here! (And get the contest winner up on the web site, which I’ve been meaning to do, but haven’t had time. Everything’s kind of gone on hold while I get my work done.)
I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to summer vacation!
