October brings a message from Beyond The Grave…

Halloween is fast approaching in the quiet Los Angeles County city of Vista Beach, home of computer programmer and tole-painting enthusiast Rory Anderson. While her painting chapter prepares to open its annual boutique house, Rory receives an unexpected email from Beyond The Grave, a company that automatically sends out messages when someone dies.

“I think I have a stalker,” the message reads. “If you’re reading this I’m either missing or dead. My life may depend on what you do. Please find out what happened to me.”

Haunted by her friend’s disappearance and possible death, Rory begins her search with the help of best friend and fellow painter, Liz Dexter. Can they discover who has designs on the missing woman and uncover the truth before one of them becomes the stalker’s next victim?

New Release: Love on the Rocks: Cobble Cove Mystery #4 by Debbie De Louise

I’m proud to announce the release of the 4th book of my Cobble Cove Mystery series, Love on the Rocks.

eBook & Kindle Unlimited: mybook.to/cc4
Paperback: mybook.to/cc4pap

It’s February in the small town of Cobble Cove. Love is in the air . . . but so is murder!

When Alicia helps plan a Valentine’s Day Party at the Cobble Cove library that also includes a surprise for her newlywed friend, Gilly, things go wrong when a mysterious box of chocolates addressed to the director turns out laced with poison.

Clues Lead to A Dead Suspect

 Although Alicia promised John she’ll no longer meddle in crime investigations, she and Gilly set out to find the person threatening Sheila who murdered the courier of the deadly candy. The three people they suspect include the professor from California who’s been romancing Sheila while she assists him with research for his book; the obnoxious patron Rhonda Kleisman who threw coffee at the director after refusing to pay for a damaged book; and a visiting widow staying at Gilly’s inn who’s unnaturally curious about Sheila and earns the nickname of Madame DeFarge for her interest in knitting.

New Cat in Town

 While Alicia and Gilly are trying to solve this new Cobble Cove mystery, Sneaky is introduced to Gilly’s new kitten, Kittykai, a calico she brought home from her honeymoon in Hawaii. It’s not like at first sight, but the two cats eventually become friends. They also both play a part in foiling the killer’s murder attempts, but will Alicia and Sheila survive unscathed?

Excerpt

“Alicia, come with me to the Reference Desk. I left a few more decorations there and can use a hand putting them up.”

Alicia followed Sheila back to the desk admiring the paper hearts and flowers hanging from the library’s ceilings and the red streamers that lay across the stacks. Two huge red hearts graced a banner strung across the entranceway over the turnstiles. In the center of each, handwritten in glittery purple script were the names of her best friend and new husband – Gilly and Ron. She knew Gilly would be glad they used her nickname but wasn’t sure the sheriff would approve of the use of his first name. Most of the town resident’s knew him as Ramsay.

Sheila ran around the desk pulling out drawers. She reminded Alicia of a hen tending her chickens. “Gilly and Ramsay are going to be so surprised.”

Alicia agreed. The idea for a combination wedding and Valentine’s Day party was hatched up by Sheila, and it was a great thought. The rest of the staff was busy upstairs where the party would be held arranging more decorations there and putting out all the home-cooked dishes they’d prepared along with the red, pink, and white sheet cake that would be served for dessert.

“What’s this?” Sheila paused in her tossing of decorations atop the desk.

Alicia came over to see what had grabbed the director’s attention. A velvet shaped heart box sat by one of the computer stations. As Alicia came closer, she could see a post-it attached to it with the words, “To Sheila from your secret admirer.”

Sheila smiled. “That Ryan. He knows I have a sweet tooth and am particularly fond of chocolates.” She opened the lid. “My favorites. I know I should wait for the party, but these are just too appealing.”

Alicia watched as Sheila took a few pieces and bit into them. Only a few seconds after she swallowed, her smile faded. She began to choke and clutched her throat.

“Sheila, are you okay?” Alicia rushed over afraid she wouldn’t recall how to do the Heimlich maneuver, but Sheila had already passed out on the floor. “Help!” Alicia called racing to the stairs. The romantic music playing above her drowned out her voice. Just as she grabbed her cell phone to dial 911, Ryan Anderson walked through the door, a huge bouquet of roses in his arms. He stopped short seeing Sheila on the ground. “What happened. Oh, My God!”

“I’m dialing 911 right now,” Alicia said. “She ate some of your chocolates and then passed out. I’m not sure if she choked on a piece.”

“My chocolates? I didn’t get her any chocolates. I was bringing her these flowers.” He dropped them on the desk and then knelt down and started administering CPR to Sheila’s unmoving body.

Spotlight for A Crafter Knits a Clue, a Handcrafted Mystery by Holly Quinn

A Crafter Knits a Clue: A Handcrafted Mystery
by Holly Quinn

About the Book

A Crafter Knits a Clue: A Handcrafted Mystery
NEW COZY MYSTERY SERIES
SET IN WISCONSIN
Crooked Lane Books (October 9, 2018)
Hardcover
ISBN-10: 1683317718
ISBN-13: 978-1683317715
Digital ASIN: B078LZ5ZM5

For fans of Betty Hechtman and Maggie Sefton, the latest craft frenzy is Holly Quinn’s Handcrafted series debut.

Sammy Kane just moved back to her hometown to run a craft store. But when the owner of a nearby yarn shop is murdered, Sammy will needle little help finding the killer.

When a heartbroken Samantha “Sammy” Kane returns to her hometown of Heartsford, WI, for her best friend Kate’s funeral, she learns that Kate’s much-loved craft store is in danger of perishing with its owner. Confounding all her expectations of the life she would live, Sammy moves back home with her golden retriever and takes over Community Craft. A few doors down Main Street, fellow new arrival Ingrid Wilson has just opened the Yarn Barn, a real “purl” of a shop. But when Sammy strolls over to see if Ingrid could use a little help, she finds Ingrid’s dead body—with a green aluminum knitting needle lodged in her throat.

Detective Liam Nash is thrown for a loop as every single citizen of Heartsford seems to have a theory about Ingrid’s murder. And nearly everyone in town seems to be a suspect. But the last time Sammy did any sleuthing was as a little moppet. And this is not fun and games. Sammy is eager to help the handsome Liam—who seems to be endlessly inventive in finding reasons to talk with her—and when Liam arrests affable woodworker Miles Danbury, Sammy puts everything on the line to help clear Miles.

As the case comes dangerously close to unraveling, Sammy must stitch the clues together. But the killer has other plans—and if Sammy’s not careful, she may wind up in a perilous knot in A Crafter Knits a Clue, the first warm and woolly yarn of Holly Quinn’s new Handcrafted mysteries.

Ode to a Carnival Fish Named Kirishima

My daughter attended a high school homecoming this past weekend while I was at the local author fair at the Port Jefferson Public Library. As I was setting up my table, I received a call from her on my cell that she’d won a fish in a contest and didn’t know what to do with it. We’d had fish when she was young after my cat died and we hadn’t yet replaced him. We hadn’t had any luck with those fish, as most of them died within a week. The longest-living one was doing well until we introduced another fish to the tank to keep him company. I remember how upset she was when I told her that her fish “Rocket” had died. She’d named him after the children’s show Little Einsteins.

When I got home from the fair, Holly was watching the goldfish swim in a small tank she got at the carnival where she’d transferred him from his bag. We knew he needed a larger tank and one that filtered the water. I recalled having found our old tank recently and putting it in the garage. The next day, Holly moved the fish to a bowl with fresh water where he swam around quickly. While I was out, she went in the garage got our old tank, cleaned everything, and set it up. When I came home, she told me she was missing the filter, so we ran out to a pet store and spoke with a fish specialist who gave us the proper one. In addition, we purchased additional fish flakes and a couple of other items to help prepare the water. The store owner gave us instructions, and she followed them. When the fish, she named Kirishima for an anime character got into the new tank, he seemed to adjust and enjoyed the bigger space.

I posted to Facebook about our getting him and asking if anyone also kept fish with cats since we have Stripey.  A few responded that they did and had no problems.

When I went to work at the library yesterday, I picked up a book on goldfish for further information. When I came home, Kirishima was swimming around and exploring the aquarium. I put on some music to do my exercising, and he seemed to “dance” with me. I took a video of him which, unfortunately, turned out to be his last one.

When I didn’t see Kirishima this morning, I was worried. He didn’t seem to be anywhere in the tank. When fish die, they usually float to the top, but he wasn’t up there. My daughter took the lid off the tank and finally found him in the filter. He floated to the bottom and lay there. We knew he was gone. I think Holly took it better than me. I’d begun to enjoy watching him swim. I realized that most carnival fish are sickly, so I shouldn’t have expected him to last long. Yet I blamed myself. Did I do something wrong? Did we feed him too much or too little? Did we rush him into the aquarium? Did we not give him enough light or darkness? All these questions will never be answered. I only know that I feel a loss. Maybe we’ll get another fish. Maybe we’ll just put away the aquarium again. It’s strange to mourn a fish we only had 3 days, but he was beginning to grow on us. It’s possible I took it harder than my daughter who seemed to accept it.

I try to tell myself it’s for the best. We have a cat, after all, but he didn’t seem to even notice the aquarium we put in our window. I tell myself it would’ve been one more thing to take care of in our busy lives and one more thing to worry about when we go away. Yet I can’t help the sadness I feel. We’ll send him on his way tonight to Rainbow Pond or wherever fish go. Rest in Peace, Kirishima. Perhaps I’ll find a place for you in my next book.

Author Spotlight of Sara Rosett, Author of Murder at Archly Manor, a High Society Lady Detective Mystery

I’m pleased to have author Sara Rosett from Houston, Texas here to speak about her writing and new release, Murder at Archly Manor that’s on blog tour with Escape with Dollycas into a Good Book.

How long have you been published? What titles and/or series have you published and with which publisher? Have you self-published any titles? Please give details.

My first book, Moving is Murder, was published in 2006 with Kensington Books. It was the first book in the Ellie Avery Mystery series about a military spouse who moves around the country and finds murder and mayhem wherever she goes. That series has 10 books. I branched out into indie publishing in 2013 with the On the Run series. It was a combination of travel, mystery, and sweet romance in the tradition of Mary Stewart and Elizabeth Peters. The first book in that series is called Elusive, and there are now seven books in that series. I went back to writing traditional cozies with the Murder on Location series, which features a location scout traveling around England as she searches for venues to film Jane Austen movies. I self-published the series and the first book is called Death in the English Countryside. There are now seven books in the series. Most recently, I have been working on a historical mystery, which is set in 1920s England. Murder at Archly Manor is the first in the High Society Lady Detective series. The first three books in the series will release between now and Spring 2019.

That’s wonderful. You have quite a varied publishing background and some interesting series.

Tell us a little bit about your books — if you write a series, any upcoming releases or your current work-in-progress. If you have an upcoming release, please specify the release date.

My next book is Murder at Archly Manor, the first book in the High Society Lady Detective series. It comes out today, October 15, 2018. I’ve been working on the next two books in the series, Murder at Blackburn Hall and The Egyptian Antiquities Murder, and they will be out in 2019. With the historical setting, I’ve had to do a lot of research, but I love that! I’ve learned so much about 1920s daily life, including fashion, travel, food, communications, and transportation. It’s been fascinating!

Although I write modern cozies and other mysteries, I enjoy reading historical mysteries sometimes and have always enjoyed that time period. It must be fun to write about it.

Describe your goals as a writer. What do you hope to achieve in the next few years? What are you planning to do to reach these goals?

I love writing stories that entertain and give readers an escape from the everyday. I will continue to write and publish books in the series I have going, which means plugging away everyday writing, editing, and marketing the books.

I know what you mean. People who aren’t authors don’t realize the amount of time and hard work involved.

What type of reader are you hoping to attract?  Who do you believe would be most interested in reading your books?

A reader who loves a good puzzle mystery and wants to travel to interesting places through their reading is my ideal reader.

That’s a wide audience.

What advice would you give other authors or those still trying to get published?

Keep at it! Keep researching the market. I’d also suggest going to conferences and meeting other writers.

Good advice.

What particular challenges and struggles did you face before first becoming published?

I wasn’t sure anyone would want to read my books and I didn’t know if I could finish a book. I think those are common struggles for beginning writers. You just have to put your head down and keep pushing forward. Get the book written, that’s the first step. Then get feedback on it and see where you are.

I agree. It’s common when you start to feel unsure of yourself and your writing. It gets a little easier as you publish, but is still a challenge until you get good reviews or on some bestseller lists.

Do you belong to any writing groups? Which ones?

No, nothing formal. I do have several writer friends who live nearby and we meet up for lunch or dinner occasionally to talk about writing.

I’m sure that’s helpful.

What are your hobbies and interests besides writing?

I like walking/hiking and baking. I also enjoy traveling to new places. I’m a museum junkie and love to explore art museums, history museums, science museums…all kinds of museums!

I have similar hobbies. I don’t bake so much, but I love to walk and visit museums when I get the opportunity.

What do you like most and least about being an author? What is your toughest challenge?

I love research and working out the story in my head. The toughest challenge is getting the words on the page to match the story in my head. 🙂

Interesting. I don’t have that problem. I just need the time to devote to it. I use a light-up note pad by my bed to take notes if I get ideas during the night, so I can remember them the next day.

What do you like about writing cozy mysteries?

Cozies are so much fun because you get an inside look at a special world. Part of the story is finding out what it’s like to run a bakery or be a bookstore owner or escort a tour group.

Yes. I think that’s a big appeal to cozy mystery readers.

Is there anything else you’d like our readers to know about you or your books?

If you enjoy lighthearted mysteries with strong puzzles set in interesting locations, I hope you’ll check my books out. If you like travel, start with Elusive. If you like Jane Austen or English stately homes, try Death in the English Countryside. If you enjoy historical mysteries, check out Murder at Archly Manor.

Something for every mystery lover.

About the Book

The Spirit in Question (A Lila Maclean Academic Mystery)
Cozy Mystery

Henery Press (October 2, 2018)
Trade Paperback | 252 pages

Digital ASIN: B07FDL54HG

English professor Lila Maclean knew drama would be involved when she agreed to consult on Stonedale University’s production of Puzzled: The Musical.

But she didn’t expect to find herself cast into such chaos: the incomprehensible play is a disaster, the crumbling theater appears to be haunted, and, before long, murder takes center stage.

The show must go on—yet as they speed toward opening night, it becomes clear that other members of the company may be targeted as well. Lila searches for answers while contending with a tenacious historical society, an eccentric playwright, an unsettling psychic, an enigmatic apparition, and a paranormal search squad.

With all of this in play, will she be able to identify who killed her colleague…or will it soon be curtains for Lila too?
