I hope every one's having a wonderful summer. Yeah, I know it's almost over and I've been a MIA blogger for most of it. But that's because I've got lots of writing projects going. I recently signed with a new literary agency and have a top secret project on submission as we speak. I'm working like a fiend to finish my 5th Kendra Clayton mystery, Sly, Slick, and Wicked as well as putting together a proposal for The Paris Lament, the sequel to The Paris Secret. I've also been working on my first urban fantasy novel as well as two other mysteries, one featuring a female homicide detective of Afro-Cuban decent and another that I'm calling Runaway Bride meets Eddie and the Cruisers. Whew! Is it any wonder I have no time to blog these days? I am planning to start doing regular vlogs starting next month to keep everyone up-to-date-about what I'm working on and maybe even read some excerpts of upcoming books. So stay tuned! And if you'd like to see what I'm working on, please check out my story boards on Pinterest!

I'm a couple of chapters into the sequel for The Paris Secret, which is tentatively entitled The Paris Lament, and decided to put together a Pinterest board for the book. Can you tell what it's going to be about?

In celebration of the release of the print version of The Paris Secret, I’m giving away a replica of the beautiful, sterling silver, French poesy ring featured in the book and pictured above.
From inside her shirt she pulled a thin silver chain from which hung a silver band ring. She unfastened the chain to retrieve the ring and handed it to me. The ring was slightly domed and etched with a chain of interlocking figure eights circling its circumference.
“What is this?” I asked.
“It’s a posy ring. They were quite popular with couples from about 1400 through the seventeenth century. The silver ones were used as engagement rings and were replaced with a gold one upon marriage. Posy comes from the term poesy. It refers to the secret messages of love that were engraved inside each one.”
I held the ring up and turned it so I could read the message. It read: de m'amour soiez sure.
“Of my love be sure,” translated Dr. Hewitt.
