Well, today’s the day! I’m excited about revealing the cover of THE DAYDREAMER DETECTIVE, the first book in a brand-new cozy mystery series! I’ve been nervous about getting this series under way because it’s something totally new for me. But I love a good challenge, and so does the heroine of this series, Mei. I love writing her. She’s complex and new. She’s got her own issues but still loves to help others, and she has a heart of gold, especially for her mom and good friends.
I hope you like the cover! I think it speaks well to the Japan location of the story and the flat illustration style is modern and eye-catching.
Luck? Forget it. Mei Yamagawa is fresh out of it. She’s just been downsized from her 3rd job in five years and her bank account is dry. Now, to keep her head above water, she must leave Tokyo and move back to her rural Japanese hometown. And there’s nothing worse than having to face your old rivals and ex-boyfriends as a failure while starting life over as a farm girl.
But when her best friend’s father is murdered, and her best friend is named the main suspect, Mei turns her daydreaming ways towards solving the crime. Between dates disguised as lunches with the town’s hottest bachelor chef, searching for clues, and harvesting sweet potatoes, Mei has a lot of non-paying work cut out for her.
Will she catch the killer before her bad luck turns worse? Or will she fry in the fire with the rest of her dreams of success?

Just like all of my full-length novels, THE DAYDREAMER DETECTIVE is just $2.99 for a limited time. I keep my prices low enough to give you a deal, and yet still high enough that I can recoup my costs as an independent author.
