Finding a cover model is a challenge. While my romance writing friends combed the web for pretty people, I looked for beautiful dachshunds! I have a line on another painting by Mick Williams, similar to the cover on Amazing Gracie. And my cover designer is warming up her Photoshop to put all the elements together. I am getting excited now that the cover is coming along, and I am getting Miss Daisy into critiques. I am mostly healthy now, and as fall sets in, I want to wrap up in my office cocoon to write. I plan to have Miss Daisy out mid November.
Hiding Miss Daisy is not a story about dachshunds like A Tale of Two Doxies, but Marco is a therapy dog who lives at Sunnydale Medical Care Center in Skeeterville. His master was a pastor who visited Sunnydale with Marco, then the pastor became a resident and brought Marco with him. Then he passed away. The staff adopted him and kept him on as a therapy dog. He plays a role in Irene’s sleuthing.
I want you to see the finalists in this beauty pageant.
This is Travie. Don’t you love his eyes!
This is Maxx. He always looks like he wants to give you a kiss.
This is Fritz. He has such a such a soulful gaze.
This is Papa Bear. He’s so furry I want to grab those furry cheeks like an auntie.
This is Frankie. He was my dear friend’s dog. He was a therapy dog who crossed rainbow bridge.
He inspired me to create Marco in the story. I wish we had a hi-res picture of him.
AND OUR WIENER, UH, WINNER, IS: YULE!
Yule looks so noble. He would walk the halls of Sunnydale with his head held high doing his job, I’m sure.
