The Kindle version of my new book is now available on Amazon for pre-order. Here’s the link: Seal of Secrets. It will be published on December 9, and the paperback version should be available around the same time.
I’m very happy with the cover. Local artist Margaret S. Tsang gave me permission to use her original watercolor “Yaquina Sunrise.” I recommend you check out her other works, some of which are hanging (and for sale) in the Artists’ Studio Association in Lincoln City.
Here’s the back cover blurb: “There is something strange about Jack Wallace, the man Chloe Denhurst has hired to do odd jobs around her house. He never talks about himself, never mentions a family or friends. She sees sorrow in his eyes, and something else, something sinister. When his past comes back to haunt him, Chloe’s own life and the life of her daughter are put in jeopardy. As the mystery deepens, Chloe gets pulled into a vortex of deception and murder.”
I confess that my goal in writing this mystery/suspense novel was to create the literary equivalent of a bag of potato chips. Just as you can’t eat only one chip, my hope is that you can’t read only one chapter. (“I know I have to make supper, have to finish this project, have to go to bed–but I have to read one more chapter first!”) One of the beta readers of the original manuscript wrote back to me, “This plot has more twists and turns than a corkscrew about to open a dusty bottle of a very fine wine!”
I can only hope you feel the same way.
