When Honey and I went to the bank recently, the teller asked if I had a new book coming out. I said, “Actually, Honey and I both have a new release.” I explained our favorite Labrador was a character in Frugal Lissa Finds a Body, how it was a cozy mystery about a money-saving blogging mom of two, and that Honey was the canine creative advisor for the book. Our teller was so excited for Honey that she gave her a pair of Pennywise sunglasses to wear. What do you think? Is hot pink her color? Have a happy Sunday, everyone! Honey is 🙂
Is everyone ready for a firecracker weekend? Yes, a Fourth of July weekend is ahead for all of us in the U.S., I hope everyone worldwide has an equally exciting weekend. And in somewhat-related news, I’m celebrating the New Release of Frugal Lissa Finds a Body by extending the $1.99 Sale Price through July 4th too. So, please grab a bargain if you’re interested in reading this title, because the book will go to $3.99 starting Friday. Click here to get to the Frugal Lissa page, and find all the bookseller links at the bottom for easy clicking. This page also includes the book description and early reviews (under Praise) to see what others are saying about the book. Don’t want to sound pushy–just want my readers to get 50% off while it’s available. Have a wonderful weekend!
Hey, gang, it’s been a while since I’ve posted, I know. I’ve been revising the 2nd book in the Frugal Lissa Mysteries series and will put it up for preorder soon–my designer is working on the book cover, so there will be a reveal on that in the coming weeks too.
My dog Honey has been excited by this series, too, since she’s my canine co-author and the model for the blonde Labrador retriever in the mysteries. And boy, does that dog have a nose for finding murders! You can spot her busy tail in the lower right corner of the cover. Read more…

I’m trying to finish three manuscripts by summer, get the newly polished up print versions of the Organized Mysteries proofed and back up for sale, and keep Honey’s tug-of-war-play addiction satisfied. So, I’ve been away from blogging for awhile. Today, however, I’m back with impulse buys and goodies I’ve run across lately that I thought y’all might be interested in. Enjoy! Read more…

I hope everyone has enjoyed a marvelous and re-energizing holiday season. It’s definitely been a busy one around my household. And now that we’re winding things up for 2018, I wanted to jump in and mention a few freebie books and bargains I’ve noticed going on right now to help anyone load up a new gift Kindle or spend that bookseller gift card while you have the chance. I Love Spending Holiday Gift Cards–don’t you? So, in my aim to help, here are a few specials my friends and I are offering before New Year’s Day.
First, I gave away a new Bodies of Art Christmas story to my newsletter subscribers earlier in the week. If you’re a subscriber, and you didn’t see a newsletter land in your inbox on Christmas Eve, please check your Spam and/or Trash folders for the mailing. Hope you enjoy it!
Hey there! Hope everyone is settling into the changing seasons. I know I’ve been enjoying the return of long sleeves to my wardrobe, and I have a fun new hoodie I just love. I’ve also ordered a gorgeous new scarf that I’ll try to remember to post when it arrives. I love autumn in America!
Speaking of fall, have you been enjoying the new television season? I recently subscribed to BritBox, and I am finding SO MANY shows I hadn’t seen before and love! That’s another “new bought” for me, along with a recent release from Nancy Atherton–I just cannot get enough Aunt Dimity and Reginald! Read more…
