How fabulous is that??
Midnight Ink's design for Book #4 is another home run for my Mace Bauer Mystery series, featuring Mace's wacky Mama. Over at her advice column on the Wide World of the Web, Mama quibbles a bit about the number of bullets lodged in the movie marquee. (''There weren't THAT many people who got shot!'') But all in all, even the notoriously hard-to-please Mama gives the new cover two thumbs up.
Oh, yeah ... and Mama's creator does too.
Mama Sees Stars comes out Oct. 1, 2011. I swear, I'll try to get back to visit my sadly neglected blog before then.
In the meantime, here's a quick peek at the plot: When a Hollywood movie company comes to little Himmarshee, Mama becomes the star she's always known she was destined to be. The Hollywood folks are out of their element in the Florida wilds: sweltering heat, mosquitoes the size of Gulfstream jets, and no decent place to order a half-skim, heavy foam vanilla latte. When moviemaking turns to murder, just about any member of the cast or crew could be the culprit. The aging action hero. The troubled teen diva. The director who tries to lure Mama to his casting couch, and winds up duking it out with Sal, Husband No. 5. If daughter Mace can't stop the killer, this movie might be Mama's final act.
Now, wouldn't you want to read about that?
