I haven’t blogged in ages, and part of the problem is that the old system on the website was too cumbersome. So now, I’ve gone to a WordPress format and we’ll see how that goes. My website is going to be undergoing a facelift and some changes, so this is just part of it.
In December, I returned to North Wales to begin work on the third Penny Brannigan novel, currently under the exciting working title of Book 3. I stayed in Llandudno, and ventured out every day … sometimes to Llanrwst and sometimes to Conwy. In the new novel, Mrs. Lloyd falls for a con man, and some of the action takes place at Conwy Castle, so I spent some time there. It is a magnificent medieval fortress with a long, rich history. I took lots of photos, some of which I posted on Twitter. I’ll have more to say about it later.
Publishing news is that the paper back edition of The Cold Light of Mourning is coming out in June, 2010.
Here’s the cover:
And the second Penny Brannigan, A Brush with Death, comes out in July, 2010.
This book begins the day after The Cold Light of Mourning ends when Penny starts to sort through Emma’s belongings and realizes her old friend had a sad secret.
There’s a nice theme starting to emerge in the cover art. I think it’s lovely and hope you like it, too!
