I am happy to report that I've completed A Djinn and Tonic (Fortune-Telling Twins Mysteries) days before I was slated to do so...and have already begun to write I Spell Trouble (Lily Sweet Mysteries).
After these two tales are completed and released, I will begin to concentrate on the NEXT SERIES, Tarni Vanderzee's story, in the Secret Sirens. This will be a paranormal romance and suspense, rather than my usual paranormal cozy mystery genre.
Tarni's story is hauntingly beautiful, tragic, inspirational and very much an adult tale which will be a departure for me from my usual humorous undertones...although there will be moments of hilarity mixed in. A trilogy, the series will begin with Siren Rise, and goes from the main characters late teen years as she journey's across the country to California and escapes the brutal practice of damaging the vocal chords that is mandatory for all sirens. Not accepting conformity, Tarni hopes to live among humans and gets caught up in the Hollywood acting and music scene where she meets the man who will change her life.
The tale takes you back to the heady excess and decadence of the 1980s as Tarni tells her tale, and I hope you are anticipating its release as much as I am enjoying writing the story for you.
I will keep you posted on its progress...in the meantime, keep June 27th (A Djinn and Tonic) and August 18th (I Spell Trouble) on your calendars...those are the release dates for the next two books!
I hope you are enjoying your summer and have a bunch of books stacked at the ready for your summer reading enjoyment!
Until next time, ciao for now - Bettina
