The Big Reveal!!

So this morning, the big reveal! Below is Laura Boyle's front cover design for Turning Secrets, book six in the Stonechild and Rouleau series. A somewhat unsettling and suspenseful vibe? This one will be released by Dundurn in May 2019 so a little wait ...

And not to end here, photographer/videographer/neighbour Graham Law took some publicity pictures of me in his backyard on Monday and here is a sample of his handiwork (Hopefully, this one isn't unsettling too :-):

Other news - I'm going to be on CBC Radio's All in a Day with Alan Neal in early August. The date is being finalized but I can tell you that it should be a fun and somewhat novel (ah hem) interview. Stay tuned!

Writing chugged along this week but I had to fill in a publicity grid for the next book and this took me a couple of afternoons. I've gotten used to working on a few books at the same time: writing one, editing another and publicity for a third, and while confusing, everything seems to get done on time. I've learned not to sweat it. Working in Communications in the government was a great training ground for juggling projects.

Not a great deal more to report this week. The road construction has turned our street into a dust bowl but my garden is taking little notice and thriving. It helps that I'm out there every morning hosing down the flowers. The grass ... not so much. It's become yellow and crunchy - I believe what you call 'gone dormant' although it sure looks dead to me. I'll end this week with a few more photos - the first two of my front yard/street and the third of my hardy side garden. Good week everyone.
