It’s Getting To Be That Time of Year…

November 26th, 2016

newsletterreminder11

One of my favorite things to do in the weeks leading up to Christmas, is put together my annual holiday newsletter for my readers. I have such a good time finding the perfect photos, a yummy recipe to share, a fun gift idea you might want to give a shot, and a very special giveaway that’s only open to my newsletter subscribers.

So, if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, you can do that on both the “home” page and the “contact” page of this site.  In addition to my annual holiday newsletter, I also send a new-release newsletter (also with a subscriber-only giveaway opportunity) timed with the launch of each new book (so usually only 3-4 newsletters a year).

Hugs!

In This Season of Gratitude…

November 12th, 2016

websitethankyou1

I want to thank you, my readers, for your loyalty and support all these years. When I was a little girl, and dreaming about being a writer, I had no idea how many wonderful people I’d meet as a result of my chosen path. You touch my heart with your kind notes, reviews, and posts on my Facebook page. And when I get to meet some of you in person at events…wow.

2017 is going to be a very busy year for me, book-wise, so be sure to come back here often to see what’s going on. And please know how very much I appreciate all of you.

Hugs!

Cover Reveal Time # 2

August 31st, 2016

I think it’s time to reveal another cover, don’t you?

This is DEATH IN ADVERTISING (Book # 1 in my Tobi Tobias Mystery series). It will release on February 7th and it is available for pre-order now.  While it is primarily an E-series, it will also be available in a trade paperback size for those who prefer physical books. What’s extra fun about this series is the fact that the first 3 books will all release in 2017!!

Now, for the cover…

death in advertising

And a tease…

When Tobi Tobias decided to open her own ad agency, having to moonlight in a pet shop wasn’t part of her vision . . . of course, neither was murder.

Sometimes when opportunity knocks, the door you open leads to a closet. That’s certainly the case for Tobi, whose weekends spent cleaning cages in her best friend’s pet shop may soon be over. She’s just landed her first big break—Zander Closet Company needs a catchy campaign slogan ASAP, and Tobi thinks she’s got the right hook to knock ’em dead: “When we’re done, even your skeletons will have a place.”

But when a real dead body topples out of a showcase closet, she’s about to discover there is such a thing as bad publicity. To save her fledgling business and not get killed by the competition, Tobi takes on a new pet project: solving the murder. But with a stressed-out parrot as the only witness to the crime, Tobi will really have to wing it to put the cagey killer behind bars.
