Celebrity Status is on its way!

Quick update. Book 4, Celebrity Status, is in the final polishing stages, and early reviewers are telling me it’s the best one yet!

My wonderful cover artist, Rebecca Swift, is hard at work designing a great cover. I will share as soon as it’s done.  Hoping to release in October, early November at the latest.

And I am now blogging at our misterio press site, on a variety of things:  marriage, divorce, birthdays…  We also have two series going, People and Places That Inspire and What Do Readers Really Like. Check it out at www.misteriopress.com

Thanks so much for your support!
