New Dino Martini!!

I have great news for Dino Martini fans!

Next month, the first book in the series, Like Coffee and Doughnuts, is being released in print. My publisher has designed a fantastic version of the cover for the print version with the current cover and a black spine - it's going to look so sharp!

Watch here for news of the official release of Like Coffee and Doughnuts in print

The second, and even more exciting bit of news is that Lyrical Press has accepted book two in the Dino Martini series, Like Pizza and Beer! That's a working title, but it doesn't seem too likely they'll ask me to change it.

No release date yet because we just signed the deal today, but as soon as I have one, I'll post an update. I'm excited because this second one was SO much fun to write and I'm looking forward to getting it out there.

Elle, this is excellent news! I'm so happy for you! Like Pizza and Beer is a great title.

(I'm picturing all the culinary possibilities now as the series takes shape, ha, ha! Like Steak and Eggs? Like Hashbrowns and Toast? Like Chile and Tortillas? Ha, ha, forgive me!)

I can't wait to read the second book. Do keep us posted!

Thanks Val! I'm very excited about this one - it was a lot of fun, and the characters are becoming more rounded for me.

Hee! I have a whole list like that for title ideas - some of them are a riot!

I will be posting release info as soon as we finalize it.

That sounds good!

Like Macaroni and Cheese? Like Fish and Chips? Like Spaghetti and Meatballs? Okay -- I'll stop now. :)

Spaghetti and Meatballs is on my list, because of Dino...but it sounds too funny, I think
