News, Appearances, and Rumors
Nearly finished with the first draft of a new Sebastian Wren mystery. After my usual exercise of choosing and discarding about 5 titles, this tasty tale of murder, intrigue, greed and duplicity is tentatively, and most likely, going to be called Fat Chance. Editing readers should be out some time in March, publication will most likely be late spring or early summer. Will post cover art as soon as Jan reads the ms & creates a dynamic graphic––until then, Serious & Moxie (black & gray–at least 50 shades) will have to do.
