Ice Castles and Drifters

A week of shoveling out from various winter storms and building an ice castle (inspired by FROZEN of course) for my daughter. Early mornings have been spent finishing up a Gideon Miles novella and giving a new look to The Drifter Detective series.

2/12/15 update: And STILL more white fluff ahead which makes my three-year-old pleased because her castle is becoming quite elaborate and now includes an opening at the top. She crawls up and sits on the snow-packed roof and surveys her vast kingdom which includes a nearby bird feeder and her grandpa plowing the road. And just checking Amazon all the Drifter Detective titles have been reorganized. I do like the new look. Hopefully it kicks the series in gear.

The desert wind whistling in the window screens today sounds like there's a blizzard outside. No need for ice castles here. I like the Drifter cover. You have a way with these. It's your m├ętier.

Thank you, amigo. Practice makes better, right? Series was doing well but I wanted a unifying image to get the word out a little better and the DeSoto is the ticket. I hope. Oh, and watch out for those desert winds.

Sounds like good stuff coming.

I believe so, Charles. Working hard but you just never can predict how the audience will take them.

David, I like The Drifter Detective cover too and I wouldn't mind looking at your little girl's ice castle. A lot of kids in India loved FROZEN. My family watches it every time it's telecast on cable.
