2nd In The Laurano Series

I finally got the second book finished and you can find it here:

I'll Be Leaving You Always

As for the cover...I lucked out.  A fan, who is a graphic artist, wrote to me and offered her services. I think she's terrific.  Her name is Virginie Brun and she lives in Brittany.

This one took so long because I got sick for two days in the middle of it.  And I have to confess I took a week off before I started doing the proofing.  I had to remind myself that the schedule of this adventure is mine.  That's the beauty of it.

It's fascinating for me to see how I've grown as a writer. I wanted to get better and better and I did. A lot of that came from reading other novelists.  Learning what to do and what not to do.  This has been my writing school.

I may take another break or start on Tuesday.  I have a standing coffee date on Mondays.

While proofing this last book I thought "Well, why not write another book?"  With no one to reject me or to tell me what to do, it seemed appealing.

Who knows what might happen...maybe I'll even do a trilogy.

Just kidding.

Fourth ebook up

I finally have finished the first of my Lauren Laurano P.I series.  I say finally but I don't mean that Everything You have is Mine took so long, it's that it took me a long time to get to it.  I spent two months getting the three Jack Early (my pen name) books readied. That link will take you to one of them and the other two are there to click and buy!

The good news is that this one didn't take as long and the formatting was easy.  I only needed help from the writer Consuelo Baehr one or two times.

I did have some problems with the cover. It wasn't the fault of the usual man who has done the other three, it was my fault for giving him the wrong info.  So I ended up doing it myself.  Go see it and tell me what you think.  Better yet, read the book and tell me what you think.

The Lauren Laurano books are a series. Five in all. Everything You Have is Mine is the first in the series.  I originally wrote it as a stand alone.  It never occurred to me that it would be a series, but that's what the publisher wanted. Who was I to say no?

So I only have four to go. If anyone wants to write a customer review of any of the books I'd be delighted. No, I'm not begging.  Much.
