Dead Mouse and New Book Cover Art
Living here in Mineral Point has been interesting what with The Red Rooster and Gray Dog cafes and people who actually write Haiku and/or Renku and tales of vampires jumping out of trees and up from under a boat dock on the only lake in the county.
But this picture says it all. From the middle or late 1800's I would think?
And can you find the mouse in the picture? Not a computer one. A dead, real one?
Maybe these are early vampires? Not too many of us like to dangle dead mice at the camera. Perhaps that mouse was breakfast?
Anyway, Liffey Rivers will figure Mineral Point out when she moves here after her latest adventures in The Alaskan Sun. (February)
Here is a sneak preview of the cover art by Cian Flynn,Sligo,Ireland.
Brenna Briggs is the author of the Liffey Rivers Irish Dancer Mysteries
