As I head up to the Piney Woods this weekend for a very special wedding, I wanted to let you know my book tour for Murder of a Good Man is only one week away! We’ve been working on interviews, guest posts, and even some visits from the characters in the first Piney Woods mystery.
And don’t forget all you friends of the Prize Guy…there is a giveaway too!
We’re having a party today and YOU are invited! There will be giveaways EVERY HOUR so drop by. So much planning…but lots of fun! Hope to see you there.
Just hearing about this book? Here’s the scoop! (cooking term)
This is our biggest anthology yet! Fifteen multi-published and bestselling authors have written short stories to entertain, baffle, and amuse you. As always, the book includes an email address so you can send away for a bonus file full of recipes and craft ideas that go with each story.
Cooking can be murder, especially when these 15 authors get involved. These are all-new, never published stories that’ll satisfy your hunger for good, clean reads with a criminal intent.
I am happy to announce MURDER OF A GOOD MAN with Camel Press will be coming out January 15, 2018. This will be my second series that takes place in Texas and the story centers around a historic hotel in an oil-bust town.
When Nora Alexander drives into Piney Woods, Texas, to fulfill her dying mother’s last wish, she has no idea what awaits her. First, she is run off the road, then the sealed letter she delivers turns out to be a scathing rebuke to the town’s most beloved citizen and favored candidate for Piney Woods Pioneer: Adam Brockwell. Next thing you know, Adam has been murdered in a nasty knife attack. Suspicion instantly falls on Nora, one of the last people to see him alive. After all, everyone in Piney Woods loved him. Or did they? Turns out Nora’s mother had a complicated past she never shared with her daughter.
Told not to leave town by Tuck the flirty sheriff, Nora finds a job with Tuck’s Aunt Marty trying to get the rundown Tunie Hotel back in the black. The old hotel was Piney Woods’ heart and soul in its heyday as an oil boomtown. Now the secrets it harbors may be the key to getting Nora off the hook. She’s going to need to solve the mystery quickly to avoid arrest, or worse: becoming the killer’s next victim.
Book 1 in the Piney Woods Mystery series.
