For me, May is a bit of a lag time.
Not yet summer, but not really spring. The weather is unpredictable—anything from a high of 87◦ to a low of 45◦. Here in Portland, we’ve had rain, hail, thunder, sun, and a short heatwave. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
In my grandmother’s day, this time of year meant Spring Cleaning. She would take up the rugs and wash the floors, polish the moldings from baseboards to picture rails, and banish the accumulation of dust gathered over a sedentary winter indoors. I’m not nearly as industrious as she was, but I do have some spring cleaning to do in another area.
Last year, I updated most of the covers for my Crazy Cat Lady cozy mystery series. Though I didn’t change the front cover, I added artwork to the spine and a new improved blurb on the back. I’m happy with the results. What do you think?
Meanwhile I have some of the older covers left in stock. (There is no difference to the book itself—just the cover as noted above.) I’m selling them direct for 50% off retail (plus USPS Media Mail shipping which is $3.65 for one book. U.S. addresses only.)
Here’s the list:
Cat’s Paw, Cat Call, and Cat Conundrum—retail $14.00, now only $7.00
Cat Noel (Novella)—retail $10, now only $5.00
I also have several copies of the Firestar Press edition of Cat Summer, book 1 of the Cat Seasons sci-fantasy tetralogy (above left) to sell out. Above right is the new cover that matches the rest of the series.
Cat Summer old cover—retail $15, now only $7.50.
Numbers are limited, so order soon. To purchase, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Sale” in the comment line.
But I also mentioned a giveaway.

That new cover is super cool!
