The time is getting close for the publication of Violent Departures, the next in the Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery sereis.

I sent in the corrections to the galley (the set-up of the pages of the book) and now it's a waiting game.

I'm anxious because I have a presentation I'm making the last Saturday of the month for the Central Coast Chapter of Sisters in Crime. One of the members won a contest to have a character named after him and I'd sure like to have the book available at the meeting. I know that he is eager to find out about his namesake.

April is when my blog tour begins for Violent Departures and having the books available for purchase is always a good thing.

This is always the time that is a bit on the nerve-wracking side for authors--hoping the book will come out in time for the promotion you've planned.

Blurb for Violent Departures:

College student, Veronica Randall, disappears from her car in her own driveway, everyone in the Rocky Bluff P.D. is looking for her. Detective Milligan and family move into a house that may be haunted. Officer Butler is assigned to train a new hire and faces several major challenges.

And if you've always wanted to have a character in a book named after you, you'll have a chance to enter the contest that's going on during the blog tour:

Because it has been popular on my other blog tours, once again I’m offering the chance for the person who comments on the most blog posts during this tour to have a character named for him or her in the next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery.

I'll be posting the tour's schedule on this blog--so stay tuned.
