Garden of Sorrow is here! New release with giveaway!

UPDATE – Janet Kerr is the winner of the draw!

Seventeen months ago I released Tuesday’s Child. Since then I’ve had 12 more new releases, including books 2 and 3 of the Psychic Vision Series. The process of releasing a new book never gets old. There is such satisfaction in bringing a creative project to this point, and so much hard work, that a new release is both a joy and relief. Mostly relief!

The joy comes several days after. When reality sets in that I really did remember to fix all those rogue threads that took off on their own tangents. And that I did tie up all those little notes I had written down on one of my many sheets of paper. That all the edits had been done properly, proofreading errors fixed and continuity of characters and consistency of style were all in place. And that, no I hadn’t forgotten anything.

That’s when I get to relax. And that always takes a couple of days.

Early on in this writing journey, I always took several days of well-earned rest after a new release. I did my promo and all that normal good stuff, but I never started a new book until I was ready. That relaxed method of working is only a fond memory right now because I’m constantly writing, constantly have several projects on the go, and always, always have anther book (or ten) in my mind to start on.

Just last night I woke up in a cold sweat with one of the worst nightmares I’ve had in decades. It was over my morning coffee I realized it was going to be Meg’s story from Touched by Death. 🙂 Course that trilogy is hard core thrillers. (shudder ;)) I get to dispose of my nightmares by putting them in print form for others to experience. Aren’t you all thrilled 🙂

My latest release is Garden of Sorrow, book 4 in Psychic Vision Series (after Hide’n Go Seek, and Maddy’s Floor). I hope you enjoy reading about Alexis and Kevin as much as I had fun writing their stories.

Garden of Sorrow

Her world is in chaos. His world is in order. She wants to help the innocent. He wants to catch the guilty. But someone is trying to make sure that neither get what they want.

Alexis Gordon has spent the last year trying to get over the loss of her sister. Then she goes to work on a normal day…and reality as she knows it…disappears.

Detective Kevin Sutherland, armed with his own psychic abilities, recognizes her gift and calls in his friend Stefan Kronos, a psychic artist and law enforcement consultant, to help her develop her skills. But Kevin has never seen anything like this case – a killer with a personal vendetta to stop Alexis from finding out more about him…and his long dead victims.

The killer can be stopped. He must be stopped. But he’s planning on surviving…even after death.

So– how do you like your suspense? With a little romance, a lot of nail biting, a touch of the paranormal or all of the above? Or maybe you like your suspense straight! I’m giving away a free digital copy of Garden of Sorrow to one commenter.

    Congratulations on another release! You are so prolific and good! I’ve read GARDEN OF SORROWS and can attest to how great it is. Your characters and your plots are like no one else’s. You always surprise.

  2. Misty Evans says:

    Happy release day, Dale! Congrats on another book well done. I’m glad you followed your passion and shared your stories with all of us.

    I like my suspense just about any way you choose, but always with a dash of humor to balance out the dead bodies. 😆

  3. Amy R says:

    Hi Dale – congrats on the release! I am looking forward to starting this Psychic Visions series. I like my suspense pretty much anyway, but as long as there is some romance along the way I can handle it. The JD Robb books I read sometimes scared the crap out of me, but it was worth it to see Eve and Roarke have their times together.

    P.S. Don’t put me in the drawing since I have alredy won a couple of books from you recently! And you all need to check out my blog about you ladies today(!

    Hi Amy,
    Glad you’re looking forward to reading the series! Enjoy. I love the J.D Robb books myself. I think I have the whole series by now.

    Thanks for the shoutout for us M&M ladies!
    Dale Mayer`s last blog was …It’s here! Garden of Sorrow is live!

  5. Congrats Dale! Love the cover. In answer to your question: love my suspense with a lot of romance! 🙂
