Out Like A Lamb… Rainy April Cozy Reads!

Hi All!

I can hardly believe that it’s the end of March already.  As cliche as it sounds, time seems to be flying and I honestly feel like it was just Christmas!

Speaking of time flying…

I’m going to cut to the chase, I promised a new free Jennifer Temple Short story, Body in the Begonias, for April 1st. I’m going to be missing that deadline. I will say that I am 3/4 of the way through and it’s just longer than I planned it to be. (Yay more book for you!) I also have been approached by a few editors, and I will be reaching out to them for prices and timelines. The book IS coming, just not on Monday!

Remember, you’ll only have access to the book if you are a subscriber to my newsletter.

It’s going to be hard to get any reading or writing done this weekend though… Where I live, it’s going to be in the 70’s and I’m elated.  My chickens are excited that it’s getting warmer as well. They’re happily laying eggs again, and enjoying the extended time free ranging each evening.

What are your weekend plans?

If you’re looking for a book to read while enjoying the warmer weather, I have a few more recommendations this week!

A witch has vanished.

It’s a race against time to find the missing woman and discover who is using their poison pen to turn the residents of Wormwood against one another.

The town’s secrets are about to be revealed, and the truth is more twisted than anyone could have imagined.

Gettin Witchy with it…

Hi All!

It’s definitely been awhile. I’m happy to report that I am in the final stages of completing Red Picket Fences.

I’m learning a great deal more about the writing process along the way, and am extremely grateful to those who took the time to beta read the book! I’m now going through line-by-line to make sure I’ve got everything right!

After final edits are complete, I have to contact my cover artist to let her know the final page count and finalize the blurb that will go on the back. After the cover is finalized, I’ll hit the publish button and promptly shout it from the proverbial rooftops! (It’s coming very soon!)

Other than that, I’ve been busy getting used to our new school routine. Both of my little boys are in school now, and it’s been a rollercoaster ride since September! We’ve also squeezed every ounce of Fall/Halloween fun out of the season.

Halloween is a big deal in this house. We celebrated all day with morning trunk-or-treating, a pre-school party, the Kindergarten parade, having a bash at my house for all of the kids, then finally walking around the streets of my charming little neighborhood gathering more loot. It was one of the best day’s I’ve had in quite some time. In fact, I’m a bit sad that Halloween is over!

If you’re like me and could immerse yourself in Witches and Vampires year round, are in need of a new Cozy Mystery to read, please check out The Case of the Power Spell: A Hillcrest Witch Mystery by Amorette Anderson.

Case of the Power Spell

Buy it on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2SACKsO

“What’s your biggest fear? For amateur witch Penny Banks, it’s failure.

Business is slow for Penny, the only PI in a small box-canyon town nestled in the mountains of Colorado. When the town mayor offers Penny a case, she can’t turn it down.

While Penny struggles to unravel the case, she also has to figure out if she’s really capable of working magic. An ancient book told Penny that it was her destiny to become a witch, but if that’s true wouldn’t she be better at it?

It’s a good thing Penny’s knitting circle is willing to lend a hand!

A hunky vampire, a blue-haired rival witch, and a high-maintenance Chihuahua named Blueberry Muffin help (and hinder!) Penny along the way.”

That’s all for now! Let me know what you think of the book, and please share with me how your Halloween went. Do you have any special traditions? I’d love to hear about it!

Stay Cozy,

Daphne

P.s. Here is a shot of my table before it was ravaged!
