Good morning, friends!
My title-less new book, due to be published sometime in January, now HAS a title! It will be The Songstress Murders, the first of hopefully many Inspector Redmane Mysteries to come! Also, I’ve sketched out my first draft of a book blurb. To be honest, I am horrible with these (I find it mind-wracking to compress something so complex down to a little blurb) but I’m open to thoughts and input!
Here it is:
The Walled City is the wonder of a world reborn, five cities stacked one atop another. The only thing that stands between the normal Folk and the criminals that would prey upon them is the City Watch. Cue Junior Inspector Vela Redmane, lover of life and the lovelies, yet serious about her work as a detective, who finds herself in embroiled in one of the weirdest murder cases ever seen in this place of magic. Murder by pleasure, warring gangsters, mysterious mages, and a singing golem are just the start of Redmane’s troubles. The most complicated part of all? The roots of love, tangling Vela with both her top suspect and the sorceress who holds all the answers!
