I’m quite excited to show you the cover for my novelette, THE BLUE NIGHTGOWN, which I hope to publish some time this month.
Storyline: When the landlady of a rooming house in the 1950s finds a blue nightgown in a tenant’s trash, little does she know it’ll bring out the sexual longings of anyone who comes in contact with it.
I started writing this story about ten years ago, but along came A CRY FROM THE DEEP, the debut novel I published on Oct. 15, 2014, and my attention was diverted. If you want to know more about this time slip romantic suspense, which has garnered great reviews, have a look here.
It seems so long ago now that the first ten pages of THE BLUE NIGHTGOWN were shown to Steven Galloway—author of The Cellist of Sarajevo—in a workshop, and he was most complimentary. With that kind of encouragement, I figured I had something going.
Here’s the opening of THE BLUE NIGHTGOWN to whet your appetite for more:
“You take care of yourself, Norma,” Anna said. “Watch out for those bulls.”
“Don’t worry, I will.” And with a laugh, the girl from room four was out the door.
Anna shook her head, knowing full well that Norma was going to get knocked around a bit more before she came to her senses. If she ever did. But there was no point in spending any more time worrying about her; Anna had to get on with the job of cleaning the mess Norma had left behind.
As for the COVER above, I had the pleasure of working with my grandson, Michael Stevantoni again. I co-produced a number of his short films. This time, he designed the cover for my novelette. If you haven’t seen his website, you can find it here. He’s a very promising filmmaker.
