Most cozy mystery covers feature cute cartoon-style characters, and I may still go that way, but it’s fun to experiment with different looks.
A cozy mystery is a crime novel without “on screen” violence, sex, or unpleasantness. They’re cozy! Think Murder She Wrote or Miss Marple. Or a nosy aunt who solves crime in between her volunteer work and baking cookies.
I enjoy cozies, and cruises, and I figure a cruise ship makes a nice self-contained environment for a murder mystery. Think of all the ways to murder someone on a boat! You could throw them overboard, poison the buffet, drown them in the pool, and that’s just for starters! The possibilities are amazing.
Why, no. I don’t have emotional problems! Why do you ask? 🤣
Anyway, I’m enthused enough about this project that I’m working on it in the evening after my other writing is done. That’s a good sign!
This series is an experiment for me, genre-wise, production-wise, and distribution-wise. Maybe I’ll write more about that later. For now, I just wanna say WHEEE! MURDER ON THE HIGH SEAS!
