Cover Reveal Time # 2

Wednesday, 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.
