Book Cover!

Attention! Attention! I just now (well an hour ago) received permission to share the cover for my January book GROUNDS TO KILL being released by Carina Press.

Isn't it fabulous?! I want to love it and squeeze it and sleep with it every single night! I particularly love the ghostie face in the steam.

I have been absent from the blogosphere but I have a great excuse, erm, I mean reason. I tore my rotator cuff. OWWW! Anyone who has ever experienced excruciating shoulder pain on a daily basis for weeks knows that no amounts of vodka and/or oxycodone takes away the evilness of it. And no I'm not using hillybilly heroin and drinking booze at the same time because that requires a level of crazy even I don't possess. But I've thought about it. A lot.

I am, however, still writing on a daily basis and I'm well on target to make my deadline for the fifth book in the Ghost Dusters series. Since writing now equals pain I'm not blogging, I am saving all that agony for fans of Ghost Dusters. You're welcome.

So if your shoulders are in good shape, pat yourself on the back and give someone a hug and then come back and write in the comments what you think of my new cover!

I love the book cover. Is this part of a series or a stand alone.

Ouch. Take care of that shoulder.

Thanks, Dru! The cover gods were smiling. It's possibly the first of the "Barista Mysteries" but it's not a sure thing yet :)

Oooo, pretty. The cover gods have smiled upon you.

Sorry to hear about your shoulder. Definitely save whatever strength you have for writing. Your blog buddies will still be here when you get time. ;o)

Hey there Wendy - So sorry to hear about your shoulder. I know it will take a while to heal, so hang in there and hopefully you will feel some relief soon. Absolutely love the cover (the steam face is a nice touch). Can't wait for Ghost Dusters and a possible series for the Barista Mysteries - how exciting! Keep us posted when you feel up to it!

Thank for suffering through the pain while you write the next Ghost Duster Novel. I just got done reading Dead and Kicking loved it. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait until the next.
