Carola Dunn's Blog (8)

long time no see

I've got too involved with FaceBook and neglected crime! I had a new book out in September, the 18th Daisy Dalrymple mystery:



The 17th, Black Ship, came out in trade paperback the same day:



And Daisy reached England at last, with BLACK SHIP this month, preceded by the first three titles, with brand new covers:…
