Time for the Holiday Giveaway Train Again–YAY!

Remember the fun giveaway time we all had this time last year when Henery Press put on the Christmas Giveaway Train? Where a bunch of us authors and book bloggers posted prizes on our FaceBook Author pages and readers could hop from FB page to FB page to try to win the prizes given by each author or blogger? Well, we’re all at it again.  Yes, I’ll be giving away prizes at  My Facebook Author Page.  Read the instructions, sign up to enter the contest (very easy, I promise), then click the link given to go to the next author on the giveaway journey. And do the same for each succeeding stop along the way. So be sure and follow the links and loop around to all your favorite authors and their giveaways. And I promise, it’s easy to enter. Wishing y’all luck for this very special Holiday giveaway. Lots of Read more…

Terrific New Women Sleuths Giveaway!

I’m involved this week in a new giveaway with a couple of dozen other mystery authors, so wanted to give everyone the heads up. Go to http://www.authorsxp.com/giveaway and enter to win. There will be a couple of grand prize winners who’ll receive all 24 books in the giveaway, and another 19 entrants will receive random books from the giveaway group. Enter now–contest ends Sunday, August 14th. My prize is copies of Marked Masters.

Could It Really Be a Year Already?

Yes, it is a fabulous anniversary, my friends. One year ago I signed my contract with Henery Press to publish my Bodies of Art Mysteries series. So with two books released and another available in preorder, how am I celebrating? By working all day on lovely book #4, of course–but that’s not all. In a surprising coincidence, I have a blog post today over on Club Hen House telling behind the scenes stories about writing book #3, Abstract Aliases, and there’s even a giveaway to one lucky commenter for a copy of Marked Masters.  The post isn’t long, but it was fun to write, and I hope that makes it fun to read too. If you like “story behind the story” reads, grab a cup of tea or coffee and take a break over at Club Hen House. And be sure to leave a comment on the Club Hen House blog so your Read more…

The circular space, lit only by the minimal luminosity filtering through a half-dozen narrow arched windows, allowed my shadow to mix with those already in residence. Night vision goggles allowed the glorious set of Rembrandts and French Impressionists to glow alongside the beauty I came to liberate.           It was a vibrant seascape, circa 1821, and a breathtaking scene of energy and Read more…

Contest and Giveaway this Weekend!

Please note: This giveaway is over and the winner is posted in the comments section. Thank you! See this terrific bag? I received this bag at the Left Coast Crime registration desk when I arrived at the Phoenix conference yesterday. The Hyatt hotel is amazing, the conference is so much fun, and I love meeting all the other mystery authors and fans, and reconnecting with friends I’ve already met on FB and at other conferences. I’m on a panel Saturday afternoon when I get to talk about writing my books, and I’m really enjoying the information coming from all the authors attending and telling me about their books and favorite mysteries. But while I’m having a great time this weekend, I thought I’d share the fun. Contest and giveaway! Inside this bag–besides the camera and Kindle and stuff of mine that I’m carrying around–are several great mystery title authors here Read more…
