Loving the Number Three!

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

For the second week in a row, HEARSE AND BUGGY has held the # 3 spot on Barnes & Noble’s national Mass Market Mystery Bestseller List!  How exciting to know that the first book in a series I’m so excited to write, is being so well received! It certainly helps that so many people are posting such nice reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, and Facebook…thank you!!

So Far, So Good

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

It’s been a week since HEARSE AND BUGGY hit the bookstores and it’s finally beginning to feel real for me. Just this past week alone, I gave three talks about the book and signed lots of copies at each event! To know that my characters–Claire and Jakob, Esther and Eli, Benjamin and Diane–are finding their way into the hearts of my readers makes me very happy! The emails I’ve been receiving from readers, and the reviews that folks have been posting online, mean the world to me. Thank you!

If you’d like to see some of the things people are saying about the first book in my Amish Mysteries, click on the “books” tab at the top of this page and then click on the cover of HEARSE AND BUGGY. Once you do that, you’ll find a “Praise for Hearse and Buggy” box with some of the most recent reviews on the book!

The second book in the series–ASSAULTED PRETZEL–will be out in March!

Well, it’s here. It’s finally, finally here! HEARSE AND BUGGY–the first book in my Amish Mysteries–is now available!! If you’ve already pre-ordered the book–thank you! If you’re heading out this week to buy it–thank you! And if you’re curious but want to get a feel for the book first, be sure to click on the Books tab at the top of this page. Once there, you’ll have the opportunity to read the first chapter of HEARSE AND BUGGY.

If you’re in Missouri, Illinois, Connecticut, or Pennsylvania, I’ve got a number of events coming up in the next several months. So look on your right and be sure to scroll through all of the events listed. If you’re in the vicinity of any of these, I’d love to meet you!

I’ll be giving periodic updates about the book and my various signings in the weeks to come, so be sure to check back soon, okay?

Oh, and book # 2 in the series? That’ll be out next March (details to follow).
