In my Newsletter last week I revealed the cover for VULNERABLE. I suspect all of you here do not take the newsletter (and you should 😊) So for y’all here it is.
Big thanks to 100 Covers and to my Beta Readers Julie Miers, Charlotte Tomlinson, Teresa Cromer and Celia Naples. They actually chose this cover when I leaned toward another. What do the rest of you think? Yes, the lake plays a part in this book. You know me and settings. 😊
So this post has gone out later than usual because frankly I forgot. For some reason it wasn’t on my to-do list for Wednesday, and it always is. But I’ve been super focused on getting the book ready to go to my editor. I’m sending it tomorrow afternoon. Pretty much the last thing I do is read the book backwards. It’s a bit time-consuming, but my eyes see stuff they skip over when I’m going forward.
And then we woke up Wednesday morning to no hot water! I spent the day getting our plumbers to come out. And they did. Kenny’s Plumbing is an awesome company. If you live in in the DFW metroplex, you should check them out. Super-nice and super-efficient and super-fast.
While it was expensive, we didn’t have to get a new hot water heater which would have cost an arm and a leg. Apparently, hot water heaters have a sensor that tells them if water is leaking into the pan. A good thing. If the device senses water it shuts down everything. Well, we didn’t have a leak, the device died and sent bad signals. So we have a new sensor, and we should be good for another couple of years. But the water heater is a 2010 model, and my guys said it’s on it’s last legs. Good to know for planning purposes.
Pic below is what it looked like outside while I wrote this. We are having blessedly cool mornings. The heat is returning next week, but for now I can celebrate these mornings.
Today is the last day for this book sale, too. Don’t miss out.
Have you started to cool off yet? What do you think of the cover? Have you read ACT OF TRUST yet? It’s a good one. #2 in The Second Chances Series, set mostly in Maine though it begins in Fort Worth.
BTW, my wrist is way improved though not 100% yet. Doc said it would take 6-8 weeks.
Love to hear from you.
