New Ebook Covers for Josephine Fuller

There’s always more to learn in book publishing. My new goal is targeting readers with ebook covers that pop up and wave at the reader out of the overcrowded waters of the sea of books. I've been bashing up against the wall of book publishing for decades now because I've got some pitbull terrier blood and an unquenchable need to tell stories and make jokes.

Oh, yeah, so what about readers who might want to read these stories and laugh at these jokes? Who are they and how can they find my books? It turns out it's possible to answer these questions, at least I hope so!

Here are the new covers on the ebooks for the Josephine Fuller mysteries. thanks to Sharon Lipman at Fantasia Book Covers for designing them and Peggy Elam at Pearlsong Press for putting them up on the net. (You may notice that the paperback books have different covers. Long story short: paperbacks change more slowly.)

A slain designer of plus-sized clothing, a killer now stalks Josephine,

A Top Secret safe cleared out and an admiral kidnapped in San Diego. The family doesn't want him back and someone's targeting Josephine to keep her from getting answers.

Josephine finds the body of a well-known mountain climber, who is also the woman who broke up her marriage. Now she's the prime suspect.

A body in a wine barrel in the Northern California Wine Country sets off a chain of murders and has Josephine trying to clear the name of a plus-sized adult film star whom she is sure is innocent--at least of murder.

Bachelor Dragon Blues- NEW & ON SALE for 99 cents till April 30th

It's finally here, on sale for the rest of April and free on Kindle Unlimited! Bachelor Dragon Blues

Meet Jevrath, a war hero from the Dragon Planet, and Beth a lab tech trying to spend a weekend away from her lecherous boss...who could imagine that they would wind up on the Bachelor Dragon reality TV dating show?

Can the love of an Earth woman save a wounded dragon shifter from the ticking time bomb inside?

Dragon Planet war hero Jevrath doesn’t know that spy bots were injected into his wound during the battle. Now spies monitor his every move and can kill him at will. He visits Earth for some no-strings-attached recreation--also to avoid the Dragon King who is nagging him to do a reality TV show as the Bachelor Dragon. Jevrath doesn't want his love life turned into a planetary joke. Then Beth walks through the door and everything changes.

Beth desperately needs a weekend away from her first job as a lab tech where she has to dodge her lecherous boss. Sudden attraction overwhelms her as she walks into the resort bar and sees tall, dark, commanding Jevrath, not knowing her life is about to be uprooted.

Overtake by intense attraction, Jevrath and Beth run straight into Beth’s predatory boss, whose leering grin promises a “put out or get out” talk for Beth soon. Frantic to get away, Beth confides her fears.

Jevrath springs into action. He takes the King’s deal to become the Bachelor Dragon on condition that the King fund a fertility clinic on the Dragon Planet, hire Beth to run it, and invite her to join the 26 shapeshifter dragon women who will compete for his love.

Can the devotion of a dragon sustain Beth in the face of 26 dragon women who don’t mind killing for love?

The end of the affair with Anita Blake...a new post for a new blog

The Creative Services Trading Group has a new blog discussing topics of interest to writers and readers. I had the honor of providing the first post—about how my love of Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series has faded over the course of 25 books. There’s an “elephant in the living room” of that series that no one else seems to have noticed. When a series you love goes wrong...

Bachelor Dragon Blues Cover & a Runaway Dragonette Review.

More dragons on reality TV. This time it's Bachelor Dragon, Jevrath, a Dragon Planet war hero being pressured to put his social life on planet-wide television and his inconvenient attraction to Beth, a serious-minded human who works for a fertility clinic.

This cover made me smile, Bachelor Dragon Blues.

Also this week brought a wonderful review from Crystal's Many Reviewers

What a cute and fun story! The king of Dragon Planet is in love with reality TV from Earth and decided that his daughter would participate in the first Journey to Love show. Verity, on the other hand, doesn’t want to have anything to do with mating because that would mean she’d be stuck in a nest taking care of eggs for the rest of her life. That isn’t in her plans but she tried to runaway once before with disastrous results. She has no choice but to go along with her father’s and uncle’s plans, watching for a way to escape.

Ryan is a human on Earth and loves everything dragon related. He and his best friend have created an everything dragon library, collecting everything they can dragon related. They stumble upon the footage of the Journey to Love TV show and Ryan is immediately smitten with Verity, the “actress”. Soon he finds out that there is more to the universe than he thought when Verity lands in his basement. Verity’s uncle finds her quickly but Ryan goes back with them, incorporated in the competition to win Verity’s hand.

The poor dragonettes!! The more I read this story the deeper I understood Verity’s fear and how terribly the female dragons were treated. In the end, the only full dragon I liked was Stravos. I would definitely read a story about him. In the beginning, I had hopes there were good dragons in the story. There was this one poor dragon at the beginning, Runeroth who made me laugh out loud and feel terribly sorry for him. He wasn’t so standup as the story went on. Then there was the crazy out of control Thidrad who I disliked from the beginning but at the end there was a glimpse of something that made me believe that everything I thought I knew about him was wrong.

The show and the producer, Tracy, I had this love/hate thing going on with both. I could understand where Tracy was coming from as a producer and the threats coming from the crown she had to contend with, but I had a hard time understanding how she could be a party to what Verity’s father wanted to do. There was this one detail about the nose ring that was vile and with all the examples of the mistreatment of the dragonettes I half expected something would be done to help them in the end. Perhaps that detail will be a part of the overall plot arc for this series.

All in all, this was a cute read. The fantasy take on a reality TV show was surprisingly fun to read. Though there were slightly darker elements with the treatment of the female dragons, the story didn’t become burdened by them, somehow staying on the lighter side, having some downright humorous moments. The cover really doesn’t so this story justice. It’s also a series that I would be interested in seeing were it goes. I have a couple of dragons in mind that I would love to see get HEAs.
