The waiting is almost over - Maguire's Corner Cover Reveal!

Here's a funny thing...

I missed my blogversary back on May 12th.


3 years.
448 posts.
Hundreds of comments.
Thousands of page views.

It's more than I ever expected.

When I started this blog, I had just finished my first novel, Setting the Record Straight, which is now the proverbial manuscript in the drawer.

One day, I will pull that bad boy out of the dark, dusty abyss and make him shine again.

Three years later my whole world is about Maguire's Corner and the people who live there.
Book one is complete and about to be published.
Book two is in the process of being written.
Book three is stewing somewhere in my brain.


I'm completely aware that without my family and friends I never would have pursued this crazy dream to fruition.

So, thank you.

And now, without further ado...

Maguire's Corner

Coffee shop owner Maggie Maguire doesn’t trust the new police chief her father hired to protect Maguire’s Corner. He’s a stranger, cold, bossy and annoyingly handsome. But, Maggie’s witnessed a serious crime and now someone’s trying to kill her. The man that aggravates her most might be the only one that can help her.

Police Chief Jack Munro likes his new job and his new town, and unfortunately he also likes the stubborn but beautiful town sweetheart. His self-imposed hands-off Maggie policy is about to be put to the ultimate test when he must keep her close to protect her while he tracks down a ruthless killer.

Determined to ignore Jack’s charms, Maggie attempts to help him unravel the mystery but when their lives hang in the balance she must decide how much she’s willing to risk to save the man she suddenly can’t resist.


There we have it.

The Maguire's Corner e-book will be available in a week. Hopefully, a paper copy will be available in the fall of 2013.

That's my spiel!

Today's genre: Monster Movies!

Monsters vs. Aliens

Dr. Cockroach: Might we ask for your name, madam?
Susan: Susan.
B.O.B.: No, no, no, we mean your monster name. What do people scream when they see you coming? You know, like "Look out! Here comes..."?
Susan: Susan.
Dr. Cockroach: Really?
B.O.B.: [spookily] "Suuuusaaan!" Ooh, I just scared myself! That is scary!

Next week's genre: Sports Movies!

I'll leave you with this!
