Well, Memorial Day has come and gone. Do you know what that means? Summer is here! School is ending and many of you are off on vacation. I love summer, and even the Texas heat doesn’t get to me. Well, not usually, but I am thankful for A/C.
Every summer I try to take a beach vacation. You know, rent a nice house with a big deck or balcony overlooking the ocean. But just because I’m on vacation doesn’t mean I’m not working. I’ll admit it, my lap top goes with me on that balcony while I’m trying to let the spirit of the ocean breeze inspire me.
And then there’s the fact that my characters never stop talking to me. Even my Shadow Falls characters still pop in to let me know what’s happening with them. They’re like old friends. I’ve even introduced them to some of my new friends. Sound crazy? Yeah, Hubby thinks so too, but he accepts me.
And I think you will too. Because those new friends are about to become characters in a C.C. Hunter series. My heroine, seventeen-year-old Riley Smith, is sharp, a little sassy if called upon, and she’s got spunk to spare.
Oh, but she has her share of problems. Her mom passed away when she was four, her dad, who in the past has always been responsible, has recently lost two jobs. Which meant they’ve moved twice in the last year and a half. She lost the boy she thought was the love of her life. She lost the best friend she thought she’d graduate with, go to college with.
She’s alone. Well, except Daddy’s clients who end up following him home.
Daddy’s clients who want something.
Daddy’s clients who are dead.
The Mortician’s Daughter isn’t scheduled yet, but we’re thinking it will be out around October. I’ll let you know as soon as I have a release date.
It’s a little spooky, has tons of heart, laughs, some mystery, and shows Riley trying to navigate being the new kid in school while ghosts are lining up for her help.
Anyway, I hope you’re doing some wonderful things this summer. Taking trips, reading fantastic books, chilling with friends. Whatever makes you happy.
So, what are your summer plans?
