I finally got around to updating the cover photo for A Legacy of Love and Murder on this blog ...look to the right. I've been knee deep in completing book four and eyeball deep in getting our property ready to sell.
The old cover was one of my favorites to date, but apparently there are readers who will not pick up a book with a Swastika on the cover. The book doesn't promote Neo-Nazism. If anything the story is a slam against the movement. Neo-Nazism provides a good villain who doesn't win. This book has great suspense and completes a thread that started in book one. Those that have read the book have praised it. But I ask you, if someone won't even pick it up, how will they know? So, my only alternative was to change the cover. My publisher, The Wild Rose Press, was wonderful to do that for me. I hope those readers will give it a shot. There are those who say this is my finest novel yet.
You might remember the Black Fairy from book one, The Art of Love and Murder. Penny Sparks was dubbed with her nick-name by Lacy. Penny was the night clerk at the Grand View Hotel who dressed Goth and fit right in with the supposed haunted hotel. Who knew she lived under an alias and had a past that demanded she stay hidden in fear? This is her book. I had a good time writing one of the villains in this story. He has a past too, sad, and it drives him down the wrong path. My secondary characters are fun. My hero Jake Winters is a rock star six months out of rehab. I think you'll like the mix and get some nail biting suspense as Jake and Penny run from the murderer.
My muse and I think we need a breather...a mindless breather. I'll work on promotion while my husband and I hunt for a place to live. It's been a whirlwind.
