TA-DA!


A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I'd be announcing something special soon, and today is the day. I am so excited to be able to tell you all this:

MY FIRST NOVEL HAS BEEN PUBLISHED AND IS READY TO GO!


Sleeping Dogs Lie is a funny, cozy thriller/mystery—with dogs. You are going to love it!
On a rainy October night, Louisa McGuire waits in the car while her friend Bob makes a dash into the grocery store. Soon he comes out again—but with him is a woman in a sleek red suit. She leads him to her Mercedes and they drive away. Has Louisa been ditched, or has Bob been kidnapped? She enlists the help of her cousin Kay, owner of an antique store, and two intrepid canines, Jack and Emily Ann, to follow the scant clues to find Bob. Find him they do—but when they learn who he really is, they learn that the stakes are high. Can they avoid being the next victims of a cold-blooded murderer?
This is the first in a series; the second book, In Dogs We Trust, is in the editing stage. And I've got a first draft written of book three (which means a lot of work left to do!).

Sleeping Dogs Lie is available as a trade paperback from the publisher’s website here. We hope to have it available soon from Amazon. But if you buy it direct we don’t have to share the money with Amazon, and quite honestly they didn’t help with any of the work of writing or publishing it! The price is $15.95, plus some shipping, and tax if you’re in California.

If you or someone you know prefers ebooks, you can buy the Kindle version from Amazon here, or go to Smashwords for downloads to Sony Reader, the Nook, most mobile apps [Stanza, Aldiko, Shortcovers], Palm Pilot and others. The ebook is only $3.99—such a deal!

Want to try a bit of it first? Read an excerpt here.

So here’s the shameless self-promotion: please buy my book! It’s sheer fun to read. Thanks!

  11. When I found your blog I knew you were a kindred spirit :)

    I even referenced your blog in a post I made last week. (http://muselandings.blogspot.com/2010/09/hello-im-laura-and-im-rummageaholic.html)

    And... yes I write too! However, I'm apparently not as diligent as you are!! I'm still in the 'what the heck is going to happen next' stage. (my book blog: http://theshabbyrabbit.blogspot.com/)

    HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!! I curtsy to you, Queen.
