Mercedes is just trying to make her way through life: taking classes, working her shift as a barista, and writing short stories that she never seems to finish. After a minor accident, she finds herself imbued with startling powers. She projects future events and rewrites the past, with disastrous consequences. Her first attempts to use her strange talents incite a zombie attack and bring an Egyptian goddess to life. Stunned by awesome abilities that she can’t seem to control, Mercedes wonders if she’s been cursed. Can she be cured? And if she can’t, what then?

Two Heads Are Deader Than One

April 18, 2017

Today I’m delighted to spotlight a book by Elena Hartwell with a title that I’ll bet got you chuckling, and curious.

Two Heads Are Deader Than One
by Elena Hartwell


Two Heads are Deader Than One (Eddie Shoes Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Camel Press (April 15, 2017)
Paperback: 286 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1603813136

Private Investigator Eddie Shoes is enjoying a rare period of calm. She’s less lonely now that Chava, her card-counting mom from Vegas, is sharing her home. She also has a new companion, Franklin, a giant dog of curious ancestry.

Hoping for a lucrative new case, Eddie instead finds herself taking on a less promising client: her best friend from her childhood in Spokane. Dakota has turned up in Bellingham in jail, where she is being held on a weapons charge. Eddie reluctantly agrees not only to lend her friend money for bail but to also investigate who is stalking her. Soon after Dakota is freed, she disappears again, leaving Eddie to answer to the local cops, including her ex-boyfriend Chance Parker. Has Dakota been kidnapped? If not, why did she jump bail? What are Eddie’s business cards doing on the bodies of two murder victims?

elenahartwellheadshotbAbout The Author

After twenty years in the theater, Elena Hartwell turned her dramatic skills to fiction. Her first novel, One Dead, Two to Go introduces Eddie Shoes, private eye. Called “the most fun detective since Richard Castle stumbled into the 12th precinct,” by author Peter Clines, I’DTale Magazine stated, “this quirky combination of a mother-daughter reunion turned crime-fighting duo will captivate readers.”

In addition to her work as a novelist, Elena teaches playwriting at Bellevue College and tours the country to lead writing workshops.

When she’s not writing or teaching, her favorite place to be is at the farm with her horses, Jasper and Radar, or at her home, on the middle fork of the Snoqualmie River in North Bend, Washington, with her husband, their dog, Polar, and their trio of cats, Jackson, Coal Train, and Luna, aka, “the other cat upstairs.” Elena holds a B.A. from the University of San Diego, a M.Ed. from the University of Washington, Tacoma, and a Ph.D. from the University of Georgia.

Brain to Books Cyber Convention
A reader’s delight

I don’t travel to conventions these days but that doesn’t mean I don’t attend them. Instead, I go to virtual conventions conducted online. They offer all the same benefits: booths, panel discussions, contests, and of course lots of FREE STUFF. This month it’s the 3rd annual Brain to Books Cyber Convention, B2BCYCON for short.
B2BCYCON Hundreds of authors in various genres and 18 different countries are participating, all over the Internet. It’s a chance for writers to network with other writers, editors, cover designers, and other industry professionals.
For readers, it’s an outstanding opportunity to get better acquainted with your favorite author and find new favorites, not to mention scoop up FREE books, bookmarks, book bags, and other giveaways, all from the comfort of your favorite chair.
I went for the first time last year and had a blast, so I’m doing it again. I’ll be attending as a reader and a neworking writer, but as an author, I’ve got goodies of my own for you.

Meanwhile, SAVE THE DATE. You’ll receive an email reminder the day of CyCon. And, you’ll be entered to win a $100 amazon gift card. Winners will be announced on April 7 so you definitely want to click this link and register.


The Writing Life

When not busy with online conventions, sales, and giveaways, I’m working another cozy mystery story with heroine Candy Wadsen this month during Camp NaNoWriMo, an organized writing marathon.


Coming Soon

April 9-10,  the Criminally Good Mystery Ebooks sale. Lots of bargains here for you readers of crime fiction.
