Flash Friday Fiction News!

Besides my running a 99¢ Flash Sale on Organized for Homicide right now, I just learned a couple of my friends also have Flash Sale books running at the moment for me to share with you.

Larissa Reinhart has a 99¢ Flash Sale going on 15 Minutes , the first book in her Maizie Albright Star Detective series. These books are personal favorites of mine, and I twist her arm to let me read them first each time. Click the title above to shoot over to the link to buy at any bookseller.

And for the next fun Flash Sale, even the author did not know about this one. Carolyn Haines just posted that her publisher is running Wishbones, book 8 in the Sarah Booth Delaney series for only $2.99. I read this book years ago in hardback, but decided to get a handy Kindle version at this price. A trip to Zinnea, Mississippi to see Sarah Booth and the gang is always a treat.

 

I do not know how long these deals will last so grab the bargains while you can. Happy Reading.

Time for Thursday Thoughts, Boughts, and Things Going On–

Hey there! Hope everyone is settling into the changing seasons. I know I’ve been enjoying the return of long sleeves to my wardrobe, and I have a fun new hoodie I just love. I’ve also ordered a gorgeous new scarf that I’ll try to remember to post when it arrives. I love autumn in America!

Speaking of fall, have you been enjoying the new television season? I recently subscribed to BritBox, and I am finding SO MANY shows I hadn’t seen before and love! That’s another “new bought” for me, along with a recent release from Nancy Atherton–I just cannot get enough Aunt Dimity and Reginald!

If you’ve liked My FB Author Page keep an eye on there and/or on your FB notifications tomorrow so you won’t miss out on another fun giveaway I have planned. For now, I’ll keep the details a surprise, but there will be multiple winners for Kindle ebook copies of a title in a wonderful series by one of my favorite author friends. So watch for it on My FB Author Page.

I’m currently putting a final polish on the manuscript for the next Bodies of Art Mystery, due out in 2019, and doing the same to the final version of the first Frugal Lissa mystery that comes out in a few weeks. But for fans of my Organized Mysteries series–or for cozy readers who’ve been meaning to try the books–the second book in the Organized Mysteries series, Organized for Homicide, is bargain priced at 99¢ At All Booksellers until the weekend —

The Organized Mysteries are each written as standalone stories, so you don’t have to have read the first to enjoy the second one. This time around, Kate & Meg are hired to plan the cross-country move of an executive father and his children–until the organizing duo finds a dead body and realize they have to make sure the murder is solved before a young woman’s future is ruined. Things get more challenging when Kate realizes the murderer is keeping tabs on her. Like the other books in the series, Kate shares organizing tips and timesaving recipes.

So what do reviewers and bloggers say? Here’s one–

“If you enjoy cozy type mysteries, I think you’ll enjoy this light fast read.”

What’s New Wednesday?

In the last few weeks, I’ve been polishing and adding new content to Organized for Masked Motives, which first appeared in the Halloween Anthology, Midnight Mysteries. The anthology was only available in fall 2016 & 2017 and is now completely off-sale, never to return again in that format. It was fun getting this title ready as an individual release because I could lengthen it a bit and give it the kind of extra content always included in the rest of my Organized Mysteries series–something I couldn’t do with the anthology.

This time, Kate & Meg are up to their costumed necks in trouble on Halloween, when they find ghosts, ghouls and witches are not the only ones to beware of on fright night. But our dynamic organizing duo are on the case, as they multitask their normal mix of mom chores and business scores, all with volunteering at a school carnival in the same week. Oh, and doing a little crime solving too.

This is the lovely cover of Organized for Masked Motives, and I think my designer hit a home run. There’s no murder this time, but there is a crime–so no blood on the cover. Organized for Masked Motives hit booksellers’ pages yesterday evening, and will be on sale for only 99¢ everywhere for a limited time. Then the book heads into Kindle Unlimited for a while and the price goes up to $1.99. So, if you want the bargain or you want a format other than Kindle, please purchase your copy soon, as I always want happy readers 🙂

Happy fall, y’all!
