A Pro Likes My Cover!
The cover of The Red Brick Cellars: A Tolosa Mystery was submitted to the cover design contest at thebookdesigner.com. The wonderful design made by Kitten at Deranged Doctor Designs was awarded a gold star by Joel Friedlander with the following comment:
A beautifully textured cover that combines strong typography with just enough environment (at the bottom) to make a complete and satisfying whole. ★
The gold star means that though the cover didn’t win, it was considered for the award or stood out in some exemplary way. You can check out all the submitted covers and Joel’s comments here.

A murdered mayor. A second body reduced to skeleton and dust. Their public display so horrific that the police are baffled.
Everyone assumes uninterested heir Louis Saint-Blancat will finally settle down and focus on the politics of Toulouse, France. Louis becomes the center of attention in the press as his mother and sister pressure him to follow the family’s political tradition, while all he wants is to track down his father’s killer and return to his globe-trotting lifestyle.
Determined to ferret out the story behind the perplexing assassination that took place at the very center of Toulouse, struggling English journalist Catherine Marty finds an unlikely ally in Louis.
Will the two sleuths discover what is lurking beneath the apparent congeniality of la Ville Rose?
Okay, it looks like the book is finally available in print. It’s available on Amazon (Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk). At the moment’s it’s displayed as “out of stock” because nobody’s ordered any yet. When you pass the order, they will order it printed, though. Please let me know if there are any issues.
I haven’t managed to get the book to show up correctly on Amazon.fr yet, but I’m working on it…
In theory, it’s possible to get a brick-and-mortar bookstore to order the book. They should easily find it through the ISBN (979-10-95707-00-4). If anyone tries it, let me know how it goes!
