This week I begin, as promised, to tell you about my new romantic voodo mystery, Dying on the Edge. It is available at Wheatmark Bookstore, http://www.wheatmark.com/bookstore for $18.95, free shipping and handling. It’s taking a bit longer than usual to go on Amazon and Kindle, but will be on, I would guess, within the next two weeks. It is taking longer than I had anticipated.
Today, I had planned to have photos of front and back covers on this site, but the person handling it has hit a slight snag. Photos will be up within a day or so. Today, I’ll just give you a bit of information and tomorrow I’ll give you the copy from the back cover that is a true description of the book’s storyline.
Dying on the Edge is set in an imaginary city on the east coast between NewYork and Boston. It is April 1992 and I chose a detectives team to work this story because they were very much a part of the 90′s police scene. The story begins with a prologue depicting a woman reminiscing about her time in Haiti seeking voodoo spells to kill a rival whose husband she intends to have. It is multicultural and so, multiracial. Several socioeconomic levels are depicted, and I think you’ll like the variety.
I have a slogan with this story and it’s more or less true: Dying on the Edge is Written in Blood — Mine! It is a story of universal truths and treachery, of warmth and tenderness, of betrayal and lusts beyond reason.
Wednesday the excerpts begin, along with, I hope, the book photos and you can judge for yourself. Later, there will be a trailer posted on this site.
I look forward to seeing you here. Take very good care.
