I don’t know what the temperatures are like where you are. Here it’s hot and getting hotter. We’re in a weather system that will bring us dangerously high heat. Heat indices today are between 105 and 109. By dangerous, that means, don’t go outside unless you have to. We’re warned that

Residents with outdoor activities as well as and vacationers not accustomed to these high indices are urged to drink plenty of water, wear light weight and light colored clothing and take frequent breaks from the heat. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.”

Well, what to do? Stay inside with a tall cool drink and read a book.

Hot bargains

June 12, 2017

It’s officially hurricane season. The temperature and the humidity here have already risen and we’ve had some serious rainstorms. Meanwhile things are heating up on the book front.


June Free for All

Cozy mystery fans, from June 12 through June 16, you have  a great opportunity to snatch up a bunch of reads for FREE. Click here to see the selection.

One of the titles in this giveaway is my One Bad Apple. It’s a “techno-cozy” (I just made up that subgenre) with the intrigue set in the workplace. If you’ve ever worked in an office, you know how treacherous that can be!


Also in June, another Giveaway


My Murder by the Book is one of several great reads that you can get for FREE in the Indie Academy Giveaway, June 15 through June 30. You can see that you have a great variety of genres to choose from. Click here to see what other books you can get for FREE.

Reviewers gave Murder by the Book 4 and 5 stars and asked for another story with heroine Candy Wadsen. So guess what? #amwriting one. Dying to Get Hung is shaping up to be a longer work. With over a half-dozen suspects, the mystery keeps gets knottier. I hope that I can figure out whodunit. Here’s a peek at the cover.

Recently I had a lot of fun with this new work-in-progress on Facebook. I needed to provoke a car accident in a scene. I’m not much of a mechanic so I asked my Facebook friends to suggest scenarios. I got lots of great suggestions. I had no idea that my friends are so diabolical!


Thrills

Thriller fans, you won’t be left without a book bargain. Click here  to check out this promo. The thrills range from action to suspense to post-apocalyptic and psychological, but the stories all have one thing in common: a 99¢ price tag. That includes my Detour, on sale for this promotion June 12 and 13.


Feeling Lucky?

You can grab Before the Luck Runs Out, Book One in this series by TJ Muir, for 99¢. Book Two, Between Luck and Magic, is on its way.

BEFORE THE LUCK RUNS OUT

Caught with his hand on the So’har’s purse, a hungry beggar is sure his Luck has failed him. But Karrahk pays Jedda to work for him, making demands that test his hazy morality. Failure will mean death, unless Jedda’s Luck can save him.


Coming Soon

Later this month, I’ll clue you in about the relaunch of a mash-up series that combines the paranormal with intrigue and espionage in a historical setting.
In late July, I’ll be facilitating a Fantasy Writing workshop. The students will be teachers pursuing professional development during their summer vacation. Usually, summer programs for teachers are focused on their teaching practices, but the organizers want to focus on their writing practices. I was tapped to teach either of the genres in which I write (Fantasy and Mystery), and I picked Fantasy. Bring on the dragons!
Last, I’ve been invited to contribute to a Fantasy Sampler anthology slated for publication late Fall. I’m working on a “low fantasy.” That’s a Fantasy story in a contemporary setting.

Fantastic Shorts

May 10, 2017

It’s time to stock up on Fantastic Shorts. No, I’m not talking about a hot new style in summer wear. They’re Short Reads: stories that are not novel length. Just like your cut-offs, despite their abbreviated length, they cover the essentials: riveting plots, engaging characters, and vividly-imagined settings.

From May 10 through May 12, you can grab these mini reads at mini prices: FREE and 99¢, including my own, eagerly awaited Lady Blackwing, which one reviewer called a “fresh and fun” light fantasy that left her wanting more. It launches officially as one of the Fantastic Shorts.

Not sure what a cozy mystery is? It’s a mystery story wherein the violence and sex are downplayed, or treated with humor. Cozies are usually set in a small, socially-intimate community. In Murder by the Book and my other cozy, One Bad Apple, the small, intimate community is the workplace, and you know how “cozy” that can get!

In her review of Murder by the Book, Laura of fuonlyknew.com stated that “I thought I had it figured out pretty early, but then I shifted to another suspect, and then another. The author kept me on my toes and the final reveal in this whodunit was a good one.” So give it read, for FREE. And don’t forget to enter that giveaway.
