Make your escape fantastic

March 13, 2017

It’s the height of Spring Break here where I live. This being a tourist destination, hordes of students (and some teachers, too) head this way, taking a breather from the rigors of Academia.

Welcome! Enjoy our beaches. Build a bonfire. Play beer pong, throw Frisbees and footballs, and watch out for sunburn as you try to tan as fast as possible.

While lounging on your beach towel, you might even want to pick up a book for fun as a change from assigned reading. Have I got deals for you.

Supernatural Fantasy Book eventThe Supernatural event running from March 13 though 17 offers a pickup-truckload of Fantasy, Paranormal, and Supernatural ebooks for FREE or 99¢. Among them you’ll find The Lost King, Book One of The Bewildering Adventures of King Bewilliam. A five-star best seller, The Lost King won the All Authors Certificate of Excellence 2016.

If that’s not enough, how about a box set of ten full-length Science Fiction and Fantasy novels?

Daughters of Destiny box set

The novels all feature ten heroines at the right hand of destiny. In these gripping and intriguing stories, women rock rebellions, hand out justice, battle shadow gods, and bend the wills of kings.

This box set contains TEN complete novels, including The Redoubt, Book Four of The Bewildering Adventures of King Bewilliam. Daughters of Destiny launches March 15 but you can order it now for 99¢. Yes, that’s ten complete novels for less than a dollar. That should fill your beach read needs.

Not traveling to some exotic beach for Spring Break? You can take a thrilling journey without even stepping outside your door. Just grab the Daughters of Destiny box set or any of the books in the  Supernatural collection.

I hope you’ll pick One Bad Apple (no pun intended). Like all the other Free For All books, it’s free for a limited time, a way for us authors to thank our loyal readers. Plus, you can enter to be in the draw to win a $25 Amazon gift card just for subscribing to our newsletters or following us on social media.

One Bad Apple by Devorah FoxNot 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. Like my other cozy, Murder by the Book, the small, intimate community of One Bad Apple is the workplace, and you know how “cozy” that can get!

Leslie of StoreyBook Reviews called it a “Great short story and this is another one that could spin off several more short stories” and awarded it five stars. So give it read, for FREE. And don’t forget to enter that giveaway.

Blogging is Murder

February 22, 2017

Murder by the Book, a Mystery Mini by Devorah FoxBlogging is Murder … Murder by the Book, that is.

Join me Feb. 22-24 as I trot around the Web visiting bloggers who are spotlighting and reviewing Murder by the Book, my 5-star Mystery Mini.

By “mini” I mean that the book is a Short Read. You may be surprised to hear how much enjoyment gets packed into 27 pages. I intended for this Short Read to entertain you when you’re stuck somewhere, like waiting for a delayed flight or for your car to be serviced. Or, as I experienced yesterday during jury duty, long stretches of standing around in a hallway outside the courtroom waiting while the lawyers deliberate on jury selection.

I want to thank all these bloggers and reviewers for getting the word out about “Murder by the Book.”

Publish on Tuesday

January 9, 2017

I recently learned something new. Apparently it’s standard procedure to publish a new book on a Tuesday.

Perhaps that’s because there’s not much else competing for readers’ attention on Tuesdays. It’s not the start of the week, it’s not the end of the week. It’s not Hump Day. It’ usually not Pay Day and holidays rarely fall on Tuesday. However, no one seems to know definitively why books are published on Tuesdays.

The Zen Detective, a novel by Devorah FoxMy previous books got launched to coincide with the book signings typically held during the Port Aransas Art Center’s First Friday events. But who am I to thumb my nose at tradition? Therefore, the ebook release of The Zen Detective is slated for Jan. 10, 2017, a Tuesday. You’ll be able to get a copy of this five-star mystery in formats suitable for Nook, Kobo, Kindle, and other e-readers, as well as in PDF and text formats.

It’s available as a print book too, should that be your preference.

Happy new year

January 5, 2017

You’re probably well into 2017 by now and while I wasn’t quite done with 2016, I’m finally accepting the Turn of the Clock.

Detour, a Big Rig Thriller by Devorah FoxThe Zen Detective, a novel by Devorah FoxBut I can’t complain. This year is off to a great start. Both Detour and The Zen Detective have gotten five-star reviews.

 

I was featured on Paul Anthony’s blog.

And, I was the guest of the First Wednesday Book Club to talk about The Lost King and all things writing. What a fabulous turn-out. My wonderful hosts let me chew their ears for three hours. It’s a good thing that several club members brought cookies to keep our strength up.

Tomorrow, I get to sign copies of The Zen Detective during the Port Aransas Art Center’s First Friday reception. Later this month, I’ll be the Mystery Books Club guest as they discuss Detour, and I’ve been invited to read as part of the Port Aransas JELM Center’s annual Author Night.

I really enjoy these “public” appearances. It gives me a chance to chat with readers. As I explained to the First Wednesday Book Club members, we writers tend to work in isolation. We don’t get much feedback unless someone takes the time to post a review on amazon or Goodreads (hint hint). I learned a lot from the book club discussion.

If your book club would like to discuss one of my books, let me know and I’ll try to arrange a discount for your book club members.

What are you looking forward to this year?
