Finally! The third book in the Murder Blog Mystery series—Dying For Dollars—is almost done. This book has taken waaaaay longer than it should have.
But I have a good excuse! My three-year-old Grandson lived with us for a year,(along with his mom and dad)and it was pretty darn hard to say,”no,” when the little guy wanted to play. So,I played.

While Dying For Dollars is getting its professional grooming, I will design the book cover. I was a graphic illustrator for years, so I look forward to the task.
When I get the manuscript back from the editor, there will be another draft, and then the book goes to proofreaders.
