My Human Mom tells me that there are a lot of steps she still needs to do before she’s ready to publish her new novel.
Here are some things which I secretly know about it:
It’s a Domestic Crime Novel (Apparently that’s her favorite type of crime novel along with Domestic Noir novels).
She tells me because there is a Femme Fatale in her novel it might also be categorized as Domestic Noir.
She’s likely going to launch it in May (That’s a long time in doggy days). That’s if all goes well!
The title is The Set Up.
Here’s a tentative blurb for it:
Homeless sixteen-year-old Maya has found the perfect summer job – getting a cottage ready to serve as a half-way house to delinquent girls. A summer job where she won’t have to wonder where she’s going to sleep for a while. Being by the lake in nature will give her time to grieve the death of her mother. Best of all, she’s met Charlie, the boy who lives in the cottage next door who gives her the attention she craves and the promise of a bright future if she sticks with him. But Charlie has a very dark side and Maya becomes involved in a murderous scheme. What will happen to Maya now that she is being blamed for the murder by the police? Who can possibly help her?
I love to listen to my Human Mom read her manuscript out loud, but honestly, I’m disappointed because I’m not even in it!
In the meantime, you might want to have a look at my Human Mom’s other books on her author page. (Every time you click on one of her books I get a treat).
