A BIG thank you to everyone for the support and readership I’ve seen with the release of my entire backlist as ebooks. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to offer the entire series digitally and to hear from those of you who have discovered Tressa Jayne Turner a/k/a Calamity Jayne in my Calamity Jayne Mystery Series. Check out my Books page for links!
I’m currently working on my seventh Calamity Jayne mystery. What started out to be a novella has, not surprisingly, morphed into a full-blown book. My plan was to have the book ready for release by April Fool’s Day–coincidentally the birthday of ace cub reporter, Tressa Jayne Turner–but, unfortunately, I’ve had to push the release date back due to issues with cover art, editing, and promotion plans. Right now, the release date is up in the air, but as soon as I have a definite release date, I’ll let you know.
So hang on and get ready for trouble in tandem when Tressa sets off on a bicycle built for two across Iowa partnered with Drew Van Vleet, a reporter from Grandville Gazette’s biggest competitor–the New Holland News–and, as it happens, Tressa’s number one nemesis. They’ve got a history. He’s got an ax to grind. And Tressa’s still smarting from being the headline grabber in Van Vleet’s humiliating Halloween spread.
- 3/21/2013 – Ran into a kerfuffle (or two) getting my next Calamity Caper ready for prime time. Hope to have updated release date soon. I’m also dipping my toes into western historical romance! More on that soon. Now, back to Calamity…
- 2/8/2013 – It’s crunch time here. I’m edging ever closer to the finish line on my seventh Calamity Jayne Mystery. I’ve hit a few potholes along the way, but I’m pumped up for the final push to the end. Okay. I hear you. “Enough with the ‘punny‘ bike references, Bacus, and get back to the book! I’m going! I’m going!
- 9/16/2012 – Fall is in the air and writing continues on several fronts. My next Calamity Caper is coming right along and I’m also putting the touches on a new women’s fiction/ police procedural I’m very excited about. I’m also trying to get all the website features up and running, so there’s lots to do before winter sets in and I want to hibernate. Stay tuned!
- 8/18/2012 – Home from CA and back in the work–and writing–realm. I’m polishing and editing two manuscripts for submission, but I’m also hard at work on the next Calamity Jayne Mystery. I’ve given it a new title and hope to reveal the cover soon. Check back for updates!
- 7/26/2012 – Author’s don’t have office parties… They have writer conferences! Currently living it up at the RWA conference in Anaheim, CA.
