I’m still debating which photo to use and also what the backdrop will be. Tooling around Sneads Ferry for that and have just about made my decision. The more I search, the more I fall in love with the Sneaky Freaky. The book is now at the editor’s and I am looking for a 2 week window for completion. I’ll let everyone know when it’s out. Always love the new babies! I hope my readers do too. Here is a sneak pre-view, a little excerpt:

“Thanks for driving all the way out here to pick me up, Mim.”

“We are the only two out of the class who live north of Hampstead,” Mim offered as she stood beside the Mustang. “Besides, I like driving down here. It’s pretty, you’ve got a great view of the river.” She walked to the side of the house and peering south to the bend in the landscape, asked, “That’s the Intracoastal, right?

Naomi nodded. “Yes, it turns into the ICW right past that bend and takes you to the inlet and out into the ocean.” Her eyes twinkled, “Roy and I have made the ICW our second home, we spend so much time on it.”

“And that,” Mim pointed across the water to the gathering of brick buildings, “that’s Court House Bay, Camp Lejeune? Wonder how many pass through there before going to Vietnam?”

“No idea,” Naomi exhaled an annoyed breath and changed the subject, “How about that storm last night?”
