A Fun Promo for Éclair and Present Danger

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

In a fun lead-up to next week’s release of Éclair and Present Danger, my oldest daughter and I created a “Tasty” type promo video. It’s kind of a spoof on those videos that take you through a step by step (at warp speed) process to create a variety of desserts. While our video isn’t at warp speed, we had fun with the same concept while promoting the book.

You can view it HERE.



Éclair and Present Danger is Just Around The Corner

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Wow. I can hardly believe Éclair and Present Danger (book # 1 in my new Emergency Dessert Squad Mysteries) will release just 2 weeks from today!!

I tell you, June 7th can’t come fast enough for me.

Then again, with everything I’m trying to get done right now, maybe it can. 🙂

Starting June 1st, I’ll be doing a 12 day “virtual tour” with Escape with Dollycas. Each day, the book will be featured on a blog (or several). Sometimes, I’ll have a unique post that tells a little bit about the book from either my perspective or that of one of the characters, and sometimes there will simply be a review of the book by whomever is hosting that day.  You can find out where I am each day by going HERE and scrolling down (the who/where will be on the right hand side).

During the week of June 7th, I’ll also be making five in-person stops at various spots around the country. Details about where I’ll be and when can be found right here on this very page (under “events” on the right).  If you’re in the vicinity of any of these places, I sure would love to meet you.

I’ll be sharing details of everything on my Facebook author page–pictures, fun happenings, etc.  So if you’re on Facebook, be sure to visit my page every day.

And if not, I’ll be sharing things here, as well.

We’ll talk again soon!
