Book Launch

TEACUP TURBULENCE's launch date was yesterday.  It was book #35 of my published novels.  You'd think that by now I'd be more blasé about such things--but never!  I love the premiere of a new book, and all the fun of getting out there and promoting it.  And hearing what people think of it.  And I'm always delighted when the reviews are good.

This time it seems even more fun than usual, partly because of my blog tour, and also because there've been so many wonderful people letting the world know about the book launch and congratulating me, mostly on Facebook.  Some of them are fellow authors--and a few of them also had their books launch yesterday.  Others are readers.  And they're all very much appreciated!


I have to admit that this launch is a bit bittersweet.  TEACUP TURBULENCE is the last book I'm under contract for in the Pet Rescue Mystery series, which was a spinoff from my Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter Mysteries--another series that has ended.  I've loved writing these books but have no definite plans to start on any sequels if the series' publisher Berkley Prime Crime isn't interested in more.

Not that I'll be bored or stop writing.  I have two Harlequin Nocturnes being published this year in my Alpha Force miniseries about a covert military unit of shapeshifters: UNTAMED WOLF in May, and LOYAL WOLF in August.

Nor will I be finished with mysteries.  My new Superstition Mystery series will begin in September with LOST UNDER A LADDER, from my new publisher Midnight Ink.   

But I'll miss the characters, settings and situations I've set up in the Pet Rescue Mysteries.   

So, in the meantime, I'll keep celebrating the release of TEACUP TURBULENCE.  And basking in the fun stuff that's going on now surrounding its debut.   

But do let me know.  Would you like to see more Pet Rescue Mysteries?

Yes, yes, yes. More Pet Rescue series. I just found you a few months ago, so you can't leave me now....

My only consolation is that you're starting a new series with Midnight Ink.

Congrats on the launch. I hope there are more books in the series!

Thanks, Tracy and Betty. I've loved writing the Pet Rescue series and will just have to see whether it can move forward. Meantime, I'm delighted about my new Midnight Ink series!
