Cleveland, 1922: Crime-fighting Mayor Richard Leon has been missing for over a year, and under John Lackland’s administration, corruption has gone from bad to worse. Now, newlyweds Robin Locksley and Marian Fitzwalter and a band of like-minded friends have established a detective agency in the suburb of Nottingham, intent on acting when the police won’t. But when their first client, Eleanor Curtmantle, reveals that Leon has been kidnapped by bootleggers, the race is on to find and rescue him before Lackland and his goons can kill the mayor and the city in one blow.
Locksley & Fitzwalter: The Case of the Missing Mayor is now available for ebook preorders on Amazon and Smashwords and will release in both ebook and paperback on December 1 (or, for the paperbacks, as close to it as possible).
Good night, what a year it’s been. How is it already November?!
Health remains a rollercoaster, though less of one thanks to a more aggressive treatment plan. But it didn’t help that my house suddenly got sold out from under me this spring, and getting into my new house took about four months longer than planned. Almost all of the projects I’d intended to work on this year have been on hold or canceled as a result.
But I’m in the new house at last, settling in slowly and working on various projects for Etsy (hoping to relaunch before Thanksgiving), and my latest book is off to beta readers. More on that next week, Lord willing. Once things calm down a bit further after the holidays, the next big things on the to-do list are compiling a short story collection with Enola and (please, Lord!) finally finishing Loyal Valley: Diversion. And maybe, maybe, I’ll get back to blogging here more regularly.
So yes, still alive, just up to my ears in ~stuff~. What else is new?
