These have been busy times for me! I’ve got 3 books coming out in the next three months! Cat Summer, Book 1 of the Cat Seasons sci-fantasy tetralogy, comes out through Fire Star Press on August 28th, less than a week away! On September 28th, I’m launching Cosmic Cat, the next in my Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series, at the Pop Cats Cat Festival here in Portland. In October, it’s time to get ready for Christmas with my Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery novella, Cat Noel. I don’t have a date for that launch, but am hoping to do a bookstore event partnered with fellow writer, Heather Ames, who will be presenting the third installment of her Indelible mystery/suspense series.
Coming August 28th. Pre-order available now.
Lise has a special destiny: to help a clowder of sentient cats save the world from an evil older than history itself. It is a terrible battle, but Lise and her feline comrades prevail, putting an end to war, poverty, ignorance and want. The world is a better place.
Or is it?
A century later, it becomes clear that something has been lost. The new civilization produces no artists, no musicians, no scientists, no philosophers. Inertia has taken hold. Lise, now at the end of her life, must join her cat-friends once more to restore the Spark of the Human Spirit, but the goal cannot be reached without sacrifice. Is there enough time left for them to save the world for future generations?
COSMIC CAT, a Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery #6
Launching at Pop Cats, September 28th
When a superhero cosplayer falls to his death at a comic con, Lynley is left holding the bag— and a cat!
Who killed Captain Cat? His tribe wants to know.
When the Captain is murdered at Bridgetown Comic-con and philanthropist Esmae Westhouse is arrested for the crime, sixty-something cat shelter volunteer Lynley Cannon steps out of her comfort zone and dons her Star Trek uniform to expose the real killer.
A decade-spanning love triangle, a band of vigilante cosplayers, a shady pharmaceutical company, and an ancient black cat named Kitty tie into a puzzling plot that has Lynley running in all directions. The death of Captain Cat is only the beginning, and Lynley must stay one step ahead of a ruthless hit man if she is to make it out alive.
CAT NOEL, a Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery Christmas novella,
Coming October 2019
Lynley finds a new meaning of Christmas when a Wiccan’s familiar is catnaped, and Lynley becomes her only hope.
Lynley Cannon is dreading the Holidays. The sixty-something cat shelter volunteer would rather hang out with cats that brave her daughter’s soulless Christmas gala, so when a witch’s beloved kitty is catnaped, Lynley grabs the excuse to skip out on her social obligations.
Though Lynley knows little about the white witchcraft known as Wicca, she does know cats and can’t decline a plea for help when one goes missing. Then the witch disappears as well. Lynley, compelled by her cat-like curiosity, sets out to search for the pair, but the task is more difficult than she’d thought.
A freak snow storm and a crazed captor take things in a dangerous direction. As Lynley endures the cold dark of confinement, the Christmas spirit brings a strength she never knew she possessed.
All books will be offered for Kindle (or Kindle app) and in print.
And what will I do when all three books are finally launched? Why, NaNoWriMo, of course!
