    Have you met Deb?

    Today we’re talking with my friend and critique partner, Debra Sennefelder! Debra’s debut mystery, The Uninvited Corpse, was released this week and I am so excited for her. I’ve been waiting for this day for just about a month less than Debra because I had the good fortune to have read this book as she was writing it. The Uninvited Corpse is a great start to Debra’s cozy mystery series, which features food blogger Hope Early. Leaving behind a failed career as a magazine editor and an embarrassing stint on a reality baking show, newly divorced lifestyle entrepreneur Hope Early thought things were finally on the upswing—until she comes face-to-face…

    Listen up! Here’s a great giveaway!

    Hello and happy spring, readers! The sun is shining (here on the west coast) and the weather is warmer and it’s a great time to get outside.

    Chasing the Dollar now in audio!

    Do you like audiobooks? I love audiobooks. So I’m very happy to share that Chasing the Dollar is now available in audio format!  I was fortunate to work with the lovely and talented Teri Schnaubelt, who has produced more than 60 audiobooks and is an accomplished actress, too! I think you’ll love her performance of the book as much as I do. Teri was also generous enough to answer some questions, okay, a lot of questions, about audiobooks and how she does her job. To celebrate the release of Chasing the Dollar in audio, I’m giving away free download codes from Audible to three commenters! Just comment below and tell me what you like about…
