I took last week off from the newsletter because we were very involved in celebrating Halloween. Halloween is a big deal in this house. We decorate every room in the house… kitchen, bathroom, and everything in between. I was hesitant at first to let the kids go out trick or treating, but our neighbors all set up a safe Halloween with pre-wrapped bags of candy set out on tables. It was perfect, and my boys had such a great (and safe) time. We also participated in an online kid’s baking championship. (pictures below)I spent most of yesterday putting all the decorations away (6 bins down, one more to go.)
Has anyone else started watching Hallmark Christmas movies yet? I was never a fan, but in the last two years, I have not been able to tear myself away. I typically don’t start to watch them this early, I’m also finding that it helps me get into the cozy mindset before I write. I’m working on a Christmas Cozy short story, that will hopefully be finished very soon! It’ll be free to my newsletter subscribers, and $0.99 on Amazon.
Speaking of discounts… I’m participating in a free mystery promotion on Book funnel. Click below to check out the awesome titles!
Also, please check out a book from a fellow author.
For those of you who are interested, here are some pictures of our house all decorated for Halloween.
I’m happy to report that I put the final touches on Death at a Dinner Party this week. I’ve uploaded it to Amazon, and for those who pre-ordered, you’ll have the book automatically delivered to your Kindle on 9/30. I’m working on the paperback version, and will let you know when that will be available. I’m so excited to finally share the next chapter in Jennifer’s story with you!
This week is the week for free books. I’m taking part in not one but TWO amazing free book promotions.
The first is on Amazon, and no, this is not a Kindle Unlimited promo. All of these books are genuinely free for the next 4 days. There are a ton of mysteries to take you all the way through the month of October. Snag them while you can!
The next takes place on book funnel, and has files types for all e-readers! There are over 100 titles featuring all genres (all clean of course!)
I’ve been busy at work finalizing Death at a Dinner Party. I cannot wait to share Jennifer’s next case with you. Many of you joined me because you downloaded Body in the Begonias. I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a line to let me know what you thought of it.
Also, I’m in the process of outlining book 4, (title not yet released) I need help naming a very important witness in the story. She’s a wealthy socialite living in an elite beach town… Send me your suggestions!
In other news, I’m excited to announce that I’ve been featured in the August Cozy Crate box. What is Cozy Crate box? It’s a monthly subscription box filled with cute little treasures and BOOKS! If you’re interested in finding out more, click on the link below.
That’s all for this week.
Stay well and stay cozy!

2. Pre-order on Amazon and have it delivered to your Kindle on July 1, 2020.
In the meantime, I’m feverishly working on Book 2: Death at a Dinner Party to be released on August 31, 2020!
It’s been a while. The end of the school year is no joke when you’re a mom of two school-aged children. I was lost in a sea of little league playoffs, moving up ceremonies, and end of year celebrations. My oldest has now only been out of school a week, and that week was a complete blur.
We had a lovely 4th of July celebration at my house on Thursday. Our whole neighborhood came out to celebrate, and we ended the evening with a fantastic fireworks display at our local ballfield. I will say it’s only the beginning of July, and I’ve had my fill of hamburgers, hotdogs, and macaroni salad!
I’ve picked up three books by Mary Kay Andrews and I’m sneaking in reading time when I can. Her books make for some wonderful summer reading!!!
Other than that, I’ve been slowly plugging away at my own books. Going forward, I’m not going to be giving out any timelines until I’m absolutely sure that I have a solid date. Life and the creative process are often times unpredictable. Rest assured though, I’m writing and progress is being made.
What recently ignited the fire for some very productive writing sessions was my cover designer sent me the proof for book two! I’m in love! Please let me know what you think!
I present to you…
Death at a Dinner Party
