Looking for Loveda Brown

Will the real Loveda Brown please stand up?

I spent the weekend holding interviews for my murder mystery novel. I’ve already hired an editor. A book cover designer is currently on board. The folks at Amazon don’t know what’s coming and frankly, I’m excited to walk into their site and let them know. Pinkies up.

No, the interviews of the moment are for the enviable honor of being on the front cover of my books. So many applicants. So little time.

Here’s the advertisement:

Wanted: Image of Loveda Brown, heroine of a new murder mystery series set in Idyllwild, California in the year 1912. Must own simple historical clothing and aura. Visual of face not necessary but an independent and saucy attitude in both features and pose must be apparent.

Hairstyle must be up, hat or pompadour optional. Visible button-up shoes a plus, and must own a pocket watch. Long term gig. Should be available for multiple books into next year and have the flexibility to change up clothing colors or share space with a variety of other characters or props, as needed. Should also be comfortable being reframed to a 5’4” height and a curly brunette.

Extra consideration will be given all applicants who can quote movie lines from Pollyanna, The Great Race, The Music Man, Somewhere in Time, or Season One of Downton Abbey.

Applicants who receive a call back will be asked to demonstrate ability to embrace dirt, gallop on a horse, drink tea, and shoot with both a pistol and a rifle.

It’s not much to ask.

Thousands of interviews later, I am down to the final five. This week, I put them through their paces, and may the best lady win! Stay tuned!
