Yes, I'm gearing up for the summer release of the 9th Blackbird Sisters Mystery, LITTLE BLACK BOOK OF MURDER (how do you like the cover?) which will hit stores on August 6th. Meanwhile, I'm writing like mad. The 10th Blackbird is due on my editor's desk this fall. (I'm still trying to dream up a title. Any suggestions?)
Did you know you can pre-order LITTLE BLACK BOOK now? Click on any of the bookseller links to the right of this column.
See you in August! Until then..........I'm writing!
The good news? I have finished the ninth book in the Blackbird Sisters mystery series, and my editor and I are fine-tuning the pages. It's called LITTLE BLACK BOOK OF MURDER, and the cover art will be coming soon. The not-so-great news? The book won't reach bookstores until August, 2013--ack! Between now and then, though, I hope to publish a couple more Blackbird "shorts" to whet appetites. Stay tuned!

Here's Nora's favorite Oscar de la Renta:
Nora Blackbird wears vintage couture dresses from the collection Grandmama Blackbird left behind in the attics of Blackbird Farm. Here is Nora's favorite---it works for any occasion but a funeral. It's Valentino, of course, from the 1980s. What do you think?
