It's Official, UNRESOLVED will Soon be a Reality!

Despite a big setback, something I've written about elsewhere, the 13th book in the Rocky Bluff P.D. Mystery series will soon be a reality.

The text block has been gone over carefully and the cover artist sent me two covers, and I chose the one I like best.

I've been working on a blog tour which will begin this month, will write more about that on my next blog post here. Every time I decide to do one, once I get started I wonder why. It is so much work, but I love writing the posts.

Though I had no idea whether or not I'd have a new book at this time of year, I always plan ahead as far as in-person events are concerned. I alway have plenty of books to promote.

I'll be speaking at the Library in Hanford at 3 p.m. and will probably talk about my latest Deputy Tempe Crabtree book as well as the new RBPD mystery. On April 22nd starting at 10, our church is having a boutique--and of course I'll be there.

Right now, May is open, but I'll be heading over to the Paso Robles Library on June 24th to participate on a panel  from 11 to 1 about Writing a Best Seller.

The biggie in July is the Public Safety Writers Association's annual conference from July 13 through 16. I'll be one of the instructors at the pre-conference workshop and participating on a panel or two.

In the evening of August 8, I'll be speaking to the San Luis Obispo Night Writers  on How to Write a Mystery. That's a fun presentation where everyone helps plot a mystery.

That's all I have so far, but who knows what will pop up in the future.

#13 in the Rocky Bluff P.D. series, Unresolved Blurb:

Rocky Bluff P.D. is underpaid and understaffed and when two dead bodies turn up, the department is stretched to the limit. The mayor is the first body discovered, the second an older woman whose death is caused in a bizarre manner. Because no one liked the mayor, including his estranged wife and the members of the city council, the suspects are many, but each one has an alibi.

And that's what's going on in my writing life now.

Always great to be able to talk about what's going on with my writing and my life.

You are so amazing, Marilyn! That blue on the cover is very pretty, by the way!

I like the cover. The artist liked another he did, but this one portrayed what goes on much better.

See you on my personal blog on April 26th. The book sounds exciting and I love the cover. Good going, Marilyn. You keep them coming.

I'll be there with bells on, Linda! Well maybe no bells, but sounded good.
