Pink XI has a title!

For today’s Teaser Tuesday… Pink XI has a title! Sally’s story will henceforth be known as:

The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla.

Huge thanks to everyone who contributed ideas for a flower for Sally! Kudos go to Alexandra and Eirene, who suggested, respectively, “The Mystery of the Midnight Manzanilla” and “The Mark of the Moonlit Manzanita”, which, when put together, became “The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla”.

My editor informs me that the manzanilla flower in fact looks rather daisy-like (despite its deadly properties)– so for all those who suggested daisy titles for Sally, this one is for you, too!

Pink XI, aka The Mark of the Midnight Manzanilla, is currently slated for publication in August of 2014, exactly a year after The Passion of the Purple Plumeria.

More about Pink XI coming soon, including a teaser chapter from Pink XI in the back of The Passion of the Purple Plumeria (coming to a bookshelf near you in less than three months!)

    As one of the daisy supporters, I am rather chuffed 🙂 Manzanilla is a fabulous word.

    I’ll admit that I’d never heard of a manzanilla flower before but when I went back and read thru the comments I saw that it had been mentioned a number of times. So, I learned something new. 🙂 Can’t wait for the book.
