I HATE THE FLU and a couple of covers

Haven’t posted for days. I’ve been sick. Oh, I’ve been reading, just didn’t feel like writing about it. So maybe in a day or two, there will be an avalanche!

But while I didn’t feel like writing, I did have fun in Photoshop and a few other programs. And here is the cover for my first book (out soon):


And here is the blurb for the back cover:

Brigid Kildare is not your typical hard boiled private eye. But she doesn’t pretend to be. No matrimonial. No child custody. No bodyguard or surveillance work. Brigid is strictly data. Asset searches, background searches, computer forensics, pre-employment screening, and basically any type of records research is what she deals in. And you really could not expect anything else. After all, your average five foot two, blue eyed, blond (one friend describes her as looking like a Christmas tree angel) is rarely the person you would send out after a bail jumper. Oh, and there is that whole one leg thing – ADA aside, most people don’t think of an amputee as the go to person for a security job. But in SOCIAL INSECURITY, the first in the Brigid Kildare Mystery Series, professional PI, Brigid Kildare, turns amateur sleuth when old ladies in the Federal Hill area of Providence, Rhode Island start to go missing and she can’t get the police to believe her. As her assistant and long time friend, Kevin, puts it: “Honey, if an old lady like Jessica Fletcher can do it, a one-legged PI and her gay PA can do it too!”  

Brigid solves the mystery, along with an odd cast of friends and family, but not before four old ladies have died, she has caught the eye of a handsome Providence Police Department detective, and she discovers that not everyone who is close to her is what they appear to be.
The first chapter is up on Amazon preview at: https://www.createspace.com/Preview/1119159    Perhaps you would like to read it and leave a comment.
And while the second book is just outlined and barely started, I did the cover for that one too:
So all in all, it hasn’t been a totally unproductive flu.
