Hey, gang, it’s been a while since I’ve posted, I know. I’ve been revising the 2nd book in the Frugal Lissa Mysteries series and will put it up for preorder soon–my designer is working on the book cover, so there will be a reveal on that in the coming weeks too. My dog Honey has been excited by this series, too, since she’s my canine co-author and the model for the blonde Labrador retriever in the mysteries. And boy, does that dog have a nose for finding murders! You can spot her busy tail in the lower right corner of the cover. In the meantime, the first book in the series, Frugal Lissa Finds a Body, is available now in preorder at all booksellers (YAY!) and even better, it’s preorder price right now is half-off the regular sale price! The book will go to $3.99 at release. So, if you want a Read more…

I’m trying to finish three manuscripts by summer, get the newly polished up print versions of the Organized Mysteries proofed and back up for sale, and keep Honey’s tug-of-war-play addiction satisfied. So, I’ve been away from blogging for awhile. Today, however, I’m back with impulse buys and goodies I’ve run across lately that I thought y’all might be interested in. Enjoy!

I hope everyone has enjoyed a marvelous and re-energizing holiday season. It’s definitely been a busy one around my household. And now that we’re winding things up for 2018, I wanted to jump in and mention a few freebie books and bargains I’ve noticed going on right now to help anyone load up a new gift Kindle or spend that bookseller gift card while you have the chance. I Love Spending Holiday Gift Cards–don’t you? So, in my aim to help, here are a few specials my friends and I are offering before New Year’s Day.

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!

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, Read more…
