Our twin grandsons turned five this month. I can't believe they were babies such a short time ago - seems like you blink and five years whiz past!

Four years ago, I sat down and decided to write The Jillian Bradley Mystery Series - eight books in all with a plan to launch a book every six months.I actually published right on schedule up until Book 8. We'll see how things go for the last six months of 2013.

One of the challenges as an indie author is getting the books error free. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've had to go back and make corrections due to one issue or another. The good thing is though, as the responsible party, I can improve my work as I go.

I wanted to thank all of you readers for bearing with the changes I've had to make along the way. My goal is to publish the best books possible for your entertainment pleasure.

With THE RUBY OF SIAM so close to launch (I'm getting it back from my editor and doing the rewrite this week), I knew I had to include the promo for the final book - THE LONG TRIP HOME. Checking the photos from CreateSpace, I found what I consider the perfect image for Book 8. Now I'm fired up to begin writing the last chapter of Jillian's life. Of course, I've been asked by fans to leave the door open for more books, but eight seems like a good round number. 

If you haven't started reading the series yet, please be my guest and enjoy Book 1 MURDER IN HALF MOON BAY as an ebook for free! Then you'll begin to understand the phrase "GO JILLIAN AND TEDDY!"

Have a wonderful week.
