New cover for upcoming e-book, A Diller A Dollar a Really Dead Scholar

New cover for upcoming e-book  

A Diller a Dollar a Really Dead Scholar

Lily Kelly, her adopted daughter Rose Brooksfield, her Great-Grandma Katha, and Amelia try to get over their trauma at the hands of a serial killer. Rose tries to overcome the whispers and innuendoes at school by joining in on school events, such as basketball and choir. Rose and her friend Carol arrive early to school to participate in choir only to find the choir teacher; Mr. Scholar has been brutally murdered. Rose collapses and is brought to hospital and Lily learns more than she wants to know about Alexander Scholar as she’s drawn into the investigation. Now Lily must help Emmett, and his new partner Kendall Owens, find the killer before he or she, threatens the Kelly clan yet again.

This is the old cover 

It wasn't how I envisioned  the cover it but it held the place until I designed this one drawing the heart and the instrument impaling to look like either a pen or knife.

and drum roll the new cover reveal...

Here's a clip my WIP (From Book 2 of The Kelly Clan Books

- A Diller A Dollar A Really Dead Scholar~~ starting with line

 7 of page 7 of the fifth editing pass (which is in progress) 

and including 7 lines. I added a little more so it would make sense.

“Carol he’s dead,” Rose indicated.

“I appreciate your dad is dead and we are sad, but why bring that up now Rose?” Carol retorted exasperated. 
“Mr. Scholar is here.”
“I don’t see him.”
That’s because he’s behind the desk. He’s dead,” Rose replied in a whisper.
“What did he have a heart attack or something? He’s awful young for that, but I understand lots of people have sudden heart attacks,” rambled Carol.
“Carol can you be quiet?”
“Well good grief, blame me like that! It’s not my fault the guy decided to have a heart attack!”
“He didn’t have a heart attack, someone has killed him and I think they took his heart.”
“Don’t joke around Rose. It isn’t funny.”
“I’m not joking.”
“Oh my God and we’re still in this room alone. The killer could come back and get us; if he isn’t in here all ready. I want my mother!” wailed Carol. She then dialled her mother on her cell phone and got no answer and wailed some more. 

And from page 77 

“While you’re thinking about it, think about this I have been married. My wife died.”
Katha reached out towards Emmett and patted his hands in sympathy, and then said, “I’m sorry Emmett.”
“You move forward, but you never forget. You carve a piece out for them, to remember them and then you can find new love. At least that’s what I’m told. I’m trying to balance that and move on with Lily.”
“Don’t hurt Lily. Thanks for the advice, Emmett. I will think on Terrence’s proposal and weigh all you’ve told me before making a decision. In the meantime, I’ve something to ask you.”
Should a policeman being saying that?” laughed Katha, “Seriously though I’ve decided to run for mayor. Could you be at my side in an hour, while I announce that I’m running for mayor?”
“You’re running for mayor?” Emmett asked shocked.
“Someone’s got to be the Mayor and replace dear, dead Horace. Why shouldn’t it be me?”
“Sounds good to me. You’ll have my vote,” Emmett answered.
