Number 5

Received acceptance from Write Words for "Dabblers." I mailed off the contract this afternoon and sent the manuscript for formatting today as well. Now it's time for cover art. I need to buy one item--a sketchbook--and the rest should be relatively easy. I set up a background image to receive the photograph I will make once all the necessary elements are assembled. I hope the book will be out by December, but it's not up to me and I have no E.T.A. on it yet.

Just as a teaser, here is the blurb I wrote for it:

            Artist Stefanie Durant never expected trouble on her return to Windsong Lake after her Uncle Hank was killed by lightning, making his house in the small town hers. As soon as she arrives, clues indicate that Hank had feared for his life and he had developed an interest in weather and mysticism. She also learns two of her old friends have adopted a pagan religion and dabble in magic. The connection is impossible to ignore, especially in light of the Ken, the psychic ability Stefanie had suppressed for more than twenty years and kept secret from everyone. It tells her  something very wrong surrounds Hank’s death when she begins doing “sleep pictures,” crude sketches she never remembers drawing that foretell of danger.  
            Although she would rather keep her secret, the Ken becomes increasingly difficult to control as danger arises out of Stefanie’s search for answers about her uncle. Who killed Uncle Hank and why? Was it the friend who has embraced dark magic, or was it the builder of the mysterious altar-like structure in the woods behind Hank’s property? And will releasing the Ken help solve the mystery or will it drive Stefanie to the brink of madness?
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
