Hannah Where's Waldo

We’re so excited at our house! Our clown, Hannah, had to jump on the bed and root out the pillows in her excitement.

A book launch is a thrilling time for authors and their families, and the STALKING GROUND release is scheduled for September 13. The book club edition launched this month, and I’ve been so pleased to hear from readers who love it. The story challenges the characters and develops them further while presenting them with a new murder to investigate. Robo stars in the show and plays a big role in solving the case.

We’ll hold our local launch event in Fort Collins, CO, on September 24, and there’s much to do to prepare. (Barnes and Noble Booksellers, 4045 S. College, 1:00-3:00 PM) In the meantime, I’ll be at the Colorado Gold Conference in Denver and the Bouchercon World Mystery Conference in New Orleans the two weekends before the launch—thus the delay for my local party. Thanks goodness my husband will stay home, carrying out the plan and putting on finishing touches while I’m gone. I appreciate his help so very much.

It’s been a busy summer, writing book three and keeping up with summer chores. The writing cycle continues, and I can’t wait to share what’s next in store for Mattie, Robo, and Cole. Best wishes, and thank you for your interest in the Timber Creek K-9 mysteries!
