Welcome to my first blog entry! The talented Guy Mercier has redesigned my website and set me up with this blog with the intention of sharing the road to publishing my first adult murder mystery. The manuscript is in my publisher's hands and we are currently settling on the cover. We had a picture that worked extremely well, but couldn't get copyright so that means a photo shoot. Not much gets done in the book world until the cover is ready to go. It's the anchor for marketing and publicity, which starts months before the manuscript goes to print.
