It really is true. Too much of a good thing is rarely as interesting as testing new waters, something I frequently do if for no other reason than to amuse myself. Lately, I’ve been testing the waters a lot!
Tomorrow, the first issue of WHISPERS FROM THE VOID is going to launch with a spectacular party at Neff of Chicago in the Merchandise Mart. I’m one of the four developer/authors. We are quite an unusual team — we are Team Monster.
Team Monster sits together and plots the entire 22 page comic book, scene by scene. Then we split the work into fourths and go away and write. We put the four quarters together and everyone reads for possible changes, especially in the characters we each developed. Then we sit together again and work out the revision, go away again and rewrite our own work.
Whispers from the Void will be distributed not only by Diamond Distributors, but by Ingrams. And we’ll be sold by Amazon.com both in paper and digital.
I love creating bookcovers for myself and for other authors.
I tried different versions of covers for See Me in Your Dreams, Tell Me No Lies and Touch Me in the Dark — the first three books in The McKenna Legacy series.
Yes, they are back. And I think the new covers work nicely. (My attempt at being an artist! Don’t tell anyone, but I can’t draw...)
And even more variety...
For years I wrote with a partner under various pseudonyms. We’re back, as well, now writing as Lynn Patrick again for Harlequin Heartwarming. My partner Linda and I are known for romantic comedy, often with a lighter suspense element.
And to make life sweeter, Lynn Patrick’s backlist is being released by Samhain Publishing as part of their Retro Romance line. They released The Mermaid’s Touch last January, and now have the next 7 books lined up between this month and next July, starting with The Perfect Affair.
More new stuff coming next month :)
