New Book

Book two of my Marshview Sheriff’s Department mystery series is out! Flight Risk is a real page-turner.

Available on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback. People seemed to like the first book in the series, Further Investigation, and that encouraged me to write another.



My book, My Writer’s Sampler: Exercises in Learning to Write Fiction, is a semi-finalist in the Florida Writers Association’s Royal Palm Literary Award contest! Now it’s in the second round of judging. I don’t know how long it’ll be before I hear whether it will be a finalist.


Those Two Different Book Covers

Looking back over my blog postings, you may have noticed sometimes the book cover is green and sometimes it’s blue with a different picture.

When I first put the book up on Kindle, I paid an artist on to design a cover for it. It was $5 for the design and $10 for the picture. That is wonderfully inexpensive compare to hiring a graphic artist in real life.

When I figured out how to operate Createspace and brought the book out as a paperback, I had to give it a different cover. The original couldn’t be sized to fit the Createspace template, so the paperback has a different cover.

In case you’re thinking of publishing a book, going through is very easy once you get started, and they will bring it out in Kindle also, from the same file.
