If you have a minute, head over to Dru’s Book Musings where Dru is showing off the new cover for the next Bodies of Art Mystery — Yay! Only in preorder now, but the book will be available June 26th. Also, feel free to comment on Dru’s blog and thank her for sharing this information for authors and readers! 🙂
Today is the last day COUNTERFEIT CONSPIRACIES is on sale for only 99¢. This is a Countdown Deal, so it’s Kindle format only, but I love when readers can save nearly 70% on my titles. But if you want a copy–or you know a friend who would like to read it at a bargain–grab it now, because in less than 15 hours it’s going to be back to regular price (that’s one of the benefits of the Countdown Deal, they tell you to the second when the book goes back to original pricing). Here’s the link to the book if you want a copy http://smarturl.it/CC99
But that’s not all, yesterday I took on the mighty challenge of taste testing the three new M&M crunch flavor varieties. While I technically loved them all, I decided I needed some help from my characters, and Laurel Beacham immediately voted for the espresso. To tie in with the 99¢ Countdown Deal that ends today on Counterfeit Conspiracies, I’m giving away 5 packages of M&M Crunchy Espresso flavor over on my Facebook Author page–one package for each of five winners. If you’d like to enter (U.S. only) click this link to get to my FB page and look for the post pinned at the top of the page https://www.facebook.com/RitterAmesBooks/ . Leave a comment to enter.

All the books listed below are mysteries bargain-priced this weekend–from FREE to 99¢! And most are available on all bookseller platforms. No need to sign up for authors’ newsletters–just scoop up the bargain books you’d like to read. The books range from cozy mystery to edgier thrillers (yep, my author pals Larissa Reinhart & Linda Crowder books are in this grouping too). But don’t click the covers below–they’re just static pictures for this blog. Instead, Click Here to go to the event page and click on the cover(s) of the book(s) you want more info on. You’ll be taken to each Book’s Page for details about each title and the quick & easy bookseller links. You can also sign up on the event page for a chance to win a $50 gift card–that will also automatically subscribe you to receive My Book Cave daily sale emails.
Is everyone getting busy? No matter how busy we are, it’s important we find ways to relax in the middle of the rush. Personally, my favorite way is to kick back, put my feet up on my ottoman (or snuggled under a warm comforter) and read. Especially seasonal reads that writers have put out especially for the holidays and at a savings, to thank me for being a reader or to gift new readers so they can try new series at a discount–or free.
I’ll start by tooting my own horn since I added a free Bodies of Art Christmas story featuring Laurel Beacham & Jack Hawkes. Laurel does a little crime thwarting on Oxford Street in London in her own inimitable way. Short and seasonal. You can Read it Here.
Next, here’s a reader extravaganza, with some of your favorite cozy mystery authors either giving away or discounting about 70 books in their various series. Click the cover and you’ll be sent to the place to download for Free or 99¢. Check it Out Here.
This next holiday bargain also has a short fuse before the 99¢ bargain disappears. The 12 Slays of Christmas is a new novella anthology–about 3000 pages long–that brings 12 cozy authors together to not only offer seasonal stories that tie to their mystery series, but also help animal shelters overwhelmed due to the recent hurricane disasters in the U.S. All proceeds from the anthology go toward the ASPCA and shelters in Texas and Florida. But the 99¢ new release price only lasts through the first week, so get it before 12/12 to get this great price. After release week is over the price of the anthology goes up to $4.99–so if you get it then you’ll still be helping the animals, but at a higher cost to you. At either price, the book is a bargain!

Finally, in case you missed them earlier, there are holiday freebies on my November post that are still available. Check out this link if you didn’t grab them earlier.
Happy Reading, Everyone! And Happy Holidays!

Yes, it’s been several weeks since I posted, but thought I’d pop in today and–before you get glassy-eyed from all the Christmas lights and carols appearing everywhere now that Halloween is over–I want to let you know I’ve added a free…Christmas story to Wattpad. Yep, it may not be a classic like Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, but if you like reading about Kate’s & Meg’s Organized adventures, here’s the one with the Christmas twist Organized for Christmas Wishes. No dead bodies, but there is a nice little mystery to get everyone in the mood for the holiday season. It will be available on Wattpad through New Year’s Day, so feel free to share the link with friends if you like the story and want to spread a little Christmas cozy mystery cheer.
Oh, and speaking of Dickens, be sure to catch the trailer for The Man Who Invented Christmas coming to theaters this year. I was hooked the first time I watched the trailer, Yes, I clicked first because Dan Stevens plays Dickens, but when I saw the agony he showed Dickens going through as he tried to wrestle the classic story into shape and make the characters do as he wanted–well, let’s just say EVERY author is going to identify with this (I admit, I become irritated when my characters think they know better than I do, and Dickens got a good taste of that, too). So click the link in the first line above and watch the two-minute trailer. Bet you want to see more 🙂
And in a little bit of a London tie-in, I’ll probably add a Bodies of Art Christmas story soon, so check this space for more details 🙂
A friend of mine, Rebecca Barrett, has a free Christmas story available at all booksellers. She writes for the fun, new Familiar Legacy cat mystery series, and this story features the series characters The title is Trouble Under the Mistletoe (Trouble is the name of the cat in the series–perfect, right?) and it is available at all booksellers. Here’s the Amazon Buy Link. And check out the whole series–the first book Familiar Trouble was penned by Carolyn Haines, and is available free right now, it’s not Christmas themed but it will go back to paid status soon, so grab it fast. Here’s the link to the Familiar Legacy Series on Amazon, and click the cover there to download the book for free.
I’ve also added some new Christmas themed coloring pages to my web page with downloadable coloring pages. So if you have crayons or a set of colored pencils itching to be used, color yourself a holiday page. You can find these new holiday coloring pages at the bottom of Coloring Pages to Download link in the Newly Added section on that page.
Happy early Holiday Reading, Everyone!
No tricks today, just a treat. I’m offering a Laurel & Jack mystery over on Wattpad for free today.
