Snippet of April 14 unedited

“Of course, dear. Come in tomorrow and we’ll look at some designs and pick something for you. Your measurements are stable so no need to take them again. You’ll be close enough to our numbers that a final fitting can go either way,” Cindy assured April. “I’m glad you didn’t wait any longer. Besides regulars, we’re getting several new customers from Heather’s party. I have reservations for fittings weeks ahead. I’ve even had appointments made ahead for Earthies passing through to the Moon.”

“I should have thought of that,” April said. “We don’t have to do anything with a lot of elaborate hand work. It can be simple but I wanted something new for such a special event.”

Cindy laughed. “I wish she’d throw a grand ball every couple of months. There are plenty of people on Home who can afford new things but the social scene is too thin to motivate them to come in and get new things.”

“You’d be shocked at the number of people urging her to have more of a social life,” April said. “Even her housekeeper keeps trying to get her to engage more.”

“Does she even have appropriate clothing for her own affair?” Cindy wondered. “Not that it’s any of my business but one wonders if she cares about such things.”

“When is Frank going to fit the lunar trumpeters?” April asked.

“Next week,” Cindy informed her. “We’re just waiting on some fancy brass buttons.”

“Have Frank contact her late tomorrow and ask for a time to measure her and show her some choices. I’ll inform her it’s my gift to her and ask her to make time for him. She’s too polite to decline a gift from me, large or small. I admit most have been on the small side. If I simply fetch dessert, she’ll always take a few bites. It’s about time I did something more significant than cheesecake for her.”

    I am eagerly looking forward to this next book in this series. The April series and the Family Law series are 2 of my favorite series. I have read both series multiple times ( 2 or 3 each) and seeing as how I read over 600 books a year you can see how much it means I like them to keep returning to them. I can not wait till the release. I am not trying to rush you, but please hurry. LOL Seriously can’t wait for the release.

    Thank you for posting these teasers. I hope you are doing better. I remember reading a comment saying you had been very sick (nearly died were your words?) Best wishes.

    Just finished another complete read-through of all the April and Family Law Books just a couple of weeks ago. Can’t wait for the next book.

    From video trumpets to real ones, Heather never expected her real estate project to end up like this.

    Any news if/when the April series will come to audio?

      No idea – they have been offered to Tantor. They are very conservative financially and want to see all that they’ve bought from me earn out before buying more. I’m happy with that. If they were levered to the hilt like so many companies I don’t think they’d be here in another year. Interest rates are going up and companies and people who need to roll loans over aren’t going to like their new payments.
