Hello Crafty Krew Friends! Today we’re excited to share the cross stitch pattern and the bead pattern for the cover of Post Mortem! Please send me a photo of your finished project! I’d love to see them.
Should you so desire, you can download the pattern as an attached PDF.
While I was writing Post Mortem, I was walking the golf course every morning. If you’ll remember how I took y’all on a walk a while back and it was really dark in the morning? That was when I was writing this novel in the Mail Carrier Cozy Mystery.
It was the surroundings that made me think to use a golf course. On my morning walks, I have met all the people who work at the golf course. It’s so funny because they are out there using their equipment to dry the dew off the greens and I’m formulating a killing!
When I’m writing, my kids know that if they want to see me they have to come to the house. Jack had come over during writing Post Mortem and I had the above piece of paper on the table.
My kids have really never taken a good look at what I do. As we all know, most kids, well my kids, are pretty deep into their life. I understand! But they really don’t know my process or really how I work. All they know is that I type on a computer a few hours a day.
Jack picked up this piece of paper and he said, “do you make notes on scrap paper?”
Yep! If you turned this over, it’s a receipt from the grocery store where I had come up with the final moment we find out who the killer is. . . only it didn’t turn out this way in the final copy. I guess this could’ve been an alternate ending, but I’ll just leave it here for now.
Have you read Post Mortem? Do you see any of the plot written on the piece of paper?
This is Helen! She looks like she’s enjoying her copy!
Happy release day for Bernadette Butler and the Front Porch Ladies! Bernadette finds herself right back in a murder mystery after her mail carrier truck breaks down and she uses her bicycle to finish her routes. She’s not alone on the route!
Rowena wanted to go for a little ride and is usually a good girl in the bike’s basket. Not today! Something caught Rowena’s eye and she jumped out of the basket, bringing Bernadette to a halt. When Bernadette grabs up Rowena and tries to see what caught Ro’s eye, it was a dead body! Not just any dead body! It’s the dead body of a beloved husband and father of the community!
Bernadette understands how the fatherless child and the widow feel. Remember…Bernadette our seasoned sleuth had a similar past, which makes Bernadette on a mission to find out who did something so terrible and to bring killer to justice! I am having so much fun writing Bernadette! I hope you enjoy your trip to Sugar Creek Gap and super excited to read your reviews!
