Since my move to a new town in a new state last September, my writing schedule has pretty much gone to hell. Luckily I am getting my stride back, and I've been working on Book 31 of the Lacey Fitzpatrick and Sam Firecloud Mystery Series, Twilight Walk. Here's a preview and the cover:

Paranormal investigators Lacey Fitzpatrick and Sam Firecloud have their lives turned upside down by a sudden medical emergency that sidelines Lacey for the foreseeable future. At the same time, however, the LAPD is stymied by what appears to be a serial murderer, and not just the ordinary garden variety. This one leaves teeth marks on the victims’ necks. Is a vampire loose in LA? Sam intends to find out, and must plunge alone into the dark underground of bloodlust culture. Can he track down the evidence by himself, and can recalcitrant Lacey follow doctor’s orders long enough to let her body heal?

I'm not quite done with this one yet, but will be soon, and I think you'll enjoy the ride.

Meanwhile my cover designer has been redoing more of the covers of the series, and they are looking fabulous, if I say so myself. Here's a sample:

I think they look pretty nifty, don't you? It'll take a while to get them all redone, but it'll happen.

And finally, one more announcement. There's a beta program that's now allowing us to publish hardback books, and I was quick to jump on that and try it out. I've released my non-fiction, the biography of my aunt who was a prisoner-of-war, as a hardback. Now that book is available as an ebook, a paperback, a hardback and an audio book. Whew! I think we've got everyone covered there, whatever your choice of format might be.

Meanwhile, I hope everyone is staying safe and enjoying some of the newfound freedom we're seeing as we're getting this virus under control. It's been a long haul, but we're definitely seeing some progress. Together, we can beat this.
