Last week, we took one more step along the publishing journey of Song of the Chimney Sweep when my publisher Orange Blossom Publishing revealed the book's cover. Isn't it lovely? Let's take a moment to scroll down and look at it. Meet you back here....
Sigh...I love everything about it.
But there's so much more coming in the next few months as we count the days to the book's release. I'm so happy to have such wonderful people joining the ride. Please help me spread the word about this very special dual timeline story with the most satisfying ending you could ask for. You can share anywhere you like.
And if you are part of a book club, this is a wonderful choice! Discussion questions are included with the novel. Pre-sales will start soon.

Song of the Chimney Sweep
Coming August 2022
Love is a song played on repeat…
A cryptic blog post leads cold case podcasters Melody and Dorian on a twisty journey back in time to uncover the mysterious story of a forgotten missing woman.
In 1969 near the Florida/Georgia Line, idealistic young Betty Langdon and fast-rising R&B singer Dominicus Owens begin an irresistible but dangerous interracial romance that ends under mysterious, heartbreaking circumstances. Betty is forced to return to her rural home to care for her manipulative mother, while Dominicus goes on to mega-stardom with his band The Downtown Sound. She follows his skyrocketing career from behind the front desk of a dying highway motel--until one day decades later, she disappears.
Now, a popular true crime podcast produced by college friends Melody Hinterson and Dorian Santos takes on the cold case of a missing local woman. The duo’s carefully-balanced workplace dynamic is weirdly off-kilter lately, but they can't take their eyes off the investigation as the intriguing new story suddenly boosts the show into the national spotlight. When the investigation uncovers the missing woman's diaries full of family secrets and the century-old legend of a fortune hidden in an old chimney somewhere in town, the truth behind the podcast's mystery suddenly becomes personal, and Melody must make life-changing choices before the final episode airs.
