What I'm Working On--Old and New

The old is Deadly Trail which first came out from Hard Shell Word Factory years ago. It actually should have been first before Deadly Omen. When I approached the publisher for the series, she only wanted Deadly Omen, Unequally Yoked, Wing Beat, and Intervention. Mundania Press has done a bit of republishing, and soon they will all be republished and available. I've actually signed five new contracts with them.

I re-edited Deadly Omen and sent it off. Now I'm working on Deadly Trail. And yes, it does need re-editing. I'm not bringing it up to date with cell phones, etc., but taking care of my excessive us of ellipses and exclamation points. And because it is so old--I had to take care of double spaces after periods.

Both those books were written and saved in Word Perfect, so there have been other issues especially with the formatting--all of this is time consuming.

In the meantime, I'm also working on a new Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery--and I have to at least write a chapter a week for two reasons, to keep my mind fresh on what I'm doing with this new plot and so I have something tor read to my critique group. 

So--I need to get busy, but I'll keep you posted.

And by the way, Happy Mother's Day! I have a beautiful bouquet of roses to enjoy and will be going to my favorite Japanese restaurant for dinner on Sunday.
