What’s New and Free Wednesday–Giveaway Edition! – Ritter Ames Mysteries

What’s New and Free Wednesday–Giveaway Edition!

WN&FWMy posts have been on the lean side lately, I know, but I’m rounding the editing bend on the next to the last set of proof pages for FATAL FORGERIES. I received my cover last week, too, and will share it soon–probably around the time preorders go live in March (yes, March is almost here–unbelieveable). But in the meantime, I scooped up links for some freebies by my author friends, and have a giveaway of my own today (My giveaway at the end, so be sure to check it out and enter, or please tell all your friends if you already have a copy).

Ready? Here goes–

First up is one of my all-time favorite cozy series is Michele Scott’s Wine Lovers Mysteries series, which is set in Napa Valley and features Nikki Sands. The covers have been updated, and the first book in the series is free right now on Amazon. Grab it and see if you don’t like it as well. Just click the Murder Uncorked picture below.

Just learned my friend Morgana Best has the first book in her Kitchen Witch series up for free at the moment. If you like cozy paranormal mysteries, grab a copy before this title goes back to full price. Fun read!

I haven’t read MA Comley’s JUSTICE series yet, but several people who read the same types of books I do have given it high praise. But if that’s not incentive enough to try it, the box set of the first two books in the series Cruel Justice and Impending Justice are free right now on Amazon. Yes, I downloaded my copy and will crack open the file as soon as my edits are completed. Pick up your own copy by clicking the picture below–

COUNTERFEIT CONSPIRACIES coverIIFinally, I went out to Amazon this morning and generated a couple of coupon codes, and I now have two copies of Counterfeit Conspiracies available for giveaway. If you’d like a Kindle copy of Counterfeit Conspiracies, just leave a comment below and I’ll draw the names of the two winners on Friday and post the names. So if you don’t Follow this blog, please check back in case I’m trying to contact you.

Okay, that’s all, folks! Now back to my writing cave to work on proofing more edits. Have a great Wednesday  🙂

  1. Thanks! Can’t wait for Fatal Forgeries. I started reading Murder Uncorked when you mentioned it recently, then got sidetracked with life. Thanks for the reminder; I was really enjoying it.

    1. This is one of those series I liked right away, but really loved as the series expanded and I learned more about the secondary characters. It developed really well 🙂

  2. Thanks for the heads up on your friends’ books and also thanks for the giveaway! In case I forget to check back you can reach me at barbie17 (at) gmail (dot) com

  3. Wait. WHO is that last author????? Oh. It’s you! :>) Thanks for the great freebies (the cozy titles always crack me up) and the contest. Can’t wait for FF to release! You KNOW I’ve been tapping my foot for more Laurel and Jack.

    1. Yeah, there aren’t any really sexy ones in the bunch, but Diane is always good for some laughs, and I really love the way Michele’s series developed through the rest of the titles in this series!

  4. Your books are so enlightening and so unique, Ritter. . I have one in the series to finish. It is always a toss up between reading and grandchildren and they have won out lately obviously. Would be happy to add to my bookshelf that is for sure.

    Thank you.

    1. Yes, grandchildren definitely have to come first, Cynthia. I don’t have any myself, but my neighbor’s granddaughter has the “drawing” duties for all my contests 🙂

  5. Hi Ritter, can’t wait for Fatal Forgeries. Thanks for the heads up on these freebies. Not entering contest as I already have and want to give others a chance. Have a great weekend.

  6. TIME TO ANNOUNCE THE WINNERS! Thanks so much, everyone, for entering this little contest. And I hope you’ve all found a fun new book to test drive a new author or series. The winning names for the copies of COUNTERFEIT CONSPIRACIES were drawn by my neighbor’s efficient little granddaughter (she is so cute, folks, and takes her job so seriously!). And the winners of the free books are…Robeader & Brooke!!!! If the winners will please contact me by email at ritteramesreaders@gmail.com, I’ll send you the links for your free copy of the book. Again, thanks everyone for entering.
