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 🙂

What’s New and Free Wednesday?

I realize it’s been a while since this blog has posted one of the Wednesday info blasts for new and free. It’s not from lack of trying, but rather from an extraordinarily challenging year that has seemed to derail my writing projects with a kind of focused consistency of a toddler walking through a shop filled with crystal.

Organized for Labor Day Foul PlayI’ll switch things up a little and start with What’s Free.  For anyone who hasn’t read the summer Organized Mystery short story “Organized for Labor Day Foul Play,” that was available for a short time in ebook, and later as a quick fun giveaway here on my blog, it’s available free again right now on Wattpad at  https://www.wattpad.com/story/118778329-organized-for-labor-day-foul-play?   You will have to be signed up to Wattpad, but membership is free and the story read is free. I’ll only have it available there a few more weeks, so don’t miss it.

Not free, but definitely a great bargain — a Halloween mystery short in the Organized Mysteries series is also included in the Midnight Mysteries cozy Halloween anthology we released for only a few months last fall during the trick-or-treat season. We’d all planned to use the stories later for our own individual marketing efforts, but we had so many fans ask us to put the anthology up again that we’ve put it back on sale at all booksellers in all eformats for another short run.  And it’s even available this time to libraries on Overdrive. So please feel free to ask your favorite librarian to order it. If you’d like more information on the nine cozy mysteries in this anthology, look to the preview post I added to this blog last fall at  https://ritterames.com/2016/09/02/friday-preview-midnight-mysteries/ . And if you missed your chance to get a copy of this 400 page anthology, or know someone who wanted one of their own, here’s a second–and probably last–opportunity. It will be available until the first week in November, then it will likely be gone for good.

And we’ll finish this Wednesday post off with what is new and in preorder at the moment. With all those challenges Life has been flinging my way over the past year or so, ORGANIZED FOR SCHEDULED SABOTAGE stayed in limbo all summer. I apologize to everyone who’s been waiting for this newest adventure for Kate & Meg. However, it’s just been set up for preorder and specially priced right now at only $1.99 until release day (then it goes up to full price). So if you have friends you know like this series of cozy mysteries, please feel free to share the news while the sale price is available. The Amazon buy link is live now, but the other booksellers will have the book up for preorder soon. http://smarturl.it/O4SSamz

I’ll try to start posting regularly again about What’s New and Free on Wednesdays. Hope you’re keeping cool this summer and finding lots of great books to read and reread!
