Checking In

Much has happened since May and the release of The Alexandria Affair. First I was very pleased to see that The Alexandria Affair made the USA Today bestseller list! Absolutely thrilled. This book has been the bestselling Captain Lacey book to date.

I am still working on the next Kat Holloway mystery, and will have an announcement about that soon. These things take time …

Meanwhile, I’m happy that I am doing more mystery-related activities. I spoke at Left Coast Crime in February, and in August, I’ll be giving a workshop and participating on a panel at WriteNow!, sponsored by Sisters in Crime. I’m looking into attending more mystery cons and speaking about writing mysteries.

As I discussed before, the next Captain Lacey mystery will be called A Mystery at Carleton House. I don’t yet have a publication date for it. At the moment, I am writing a Shifters novel for my publisher as Jennifer Ashley, next I will complete the Kat Holloway full-length book, followed by yet another Shifters book I owe my publisher. Then I will get back to Captain Lacey. It takes me 2-3 months to write a book, depending on its length, so you can figure about how long it will be.

I’ll post again when I know release dates and have pre-order information for both Captain Lacey and Kat Holloway.

So far, I’m enjoying my stint as a mystery writer. I have ideas for at least three, maybe four, more series, so who knows what the future will bring!

By the way, I did take the two weeks R&R I mentioned I’d be doing in June. I had a fabulous time in Amsterdam, Germany, France, and Switzerland. I can’t lie–it was awesome. I am refreshed and ready to write!
