I'll have copies of Bruce and the Murder in the Marsh for sale/signing at the Oktoberfest celebration at Sun City Grand (booth 21 in the ballroom near the stage), and you can also see the new covers for the previous three Bruce and Friends books.
My daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Engel, did a marvelous job creating these. What's more amazing is that I had no idea she was an artist of this caliber. I had been looking for an illustrator for quite a while, when my son, Morgan (her husband) said, "Why don't you ask Elizabeth?"
I wasn't sure about that at first. I have been warned about working with family -- it's better to keep business and family in different rooms. But I took a chance, and I'm so glad. You can see images of the new covers and read a little about the new book on my website at www.galeleach.com.
By the way, I'm trying to spread the word about these books, of course. If you haven't liked my "Gale Leach Author" page on Facebook, I'd love it if you would (I'll send more virtual hugs, and if you come by one of the upcoming signing events, I'll give you a real one, too!). The more likes I can get, the more people will learn of the books, so I thank you in advance.
I'm already working on a new book. Is it in the same series? Is it something completely different? I won't tell, at least not yet. But I will give you some hints as I get farther along.
Thanks to all of you who have made the journey this far so wonderful. Your support is what keeps me going.
My best to you,
