Historically Dead by Greta McKennan

When the reality show My House in History comes to Laurel Springs, Pennsylvania, savvy seamstress Daria Dembrowski sees a business opportunity. The show follows two elderly sisters’ quest to restore their colonial mansion, and that means a heap of work for a seamstress who specializes in historical textiles. Although one of the old women is a bit of a grump, Daria loves the job—until she discovers one of the researchers dead, and the whole project threatens to unwind.

As a series of historical crimes pile up, from a stolen Paul Revere platter to a chilling incident of arson, Daria must find the killer quickly, for her life is hanging by a thread.

The Moonglow Cafe by Deborah Garner

New York reporter Paige MacKenzie has a hidden motive when she heads to the small town of Timberton, Montana. Assigned to research the area's unique Yogo sapphires for the Manhattan Post, she hopes to reconnect romantically with handsome cowboy Jake Norris. The local gem gallery offers the material needed for the article, but the discovery of an old diary, hidden inside the wall of a historic hotel, soon sends her on a detour into the underworld of art and deception.

Each of the town's residents holds a key to untangling more than one long-buried secret, from the hippie chick owner of a new age café to the mute homeless man in the town park. As the worlds of western art and sapphire mining collide, Paige finds herself juggling research, romance and danger. With stolen sapphires and shady characters thrown into the mix, will Paige escape the consequences of her own curiosity?

April Book Giveaway and Adoptable Animal

*** Giveaway closed. Congratulations to Barbara C., the winner! *** 

Happy April, everyone! This month I'm giving away a copy of Nine Lives by Wendy Corsi Staub. This wonderful book features some paranormal elements as well as a lovable cat. If the Book Depository does not ship to the winner's country, the winner will receive an alternate prize of my choosing. Please see my website for the full rules.

It's also time to spotlight another adoptable animal! Meet the beautiful and friendly Scrappy Doo.

Scrappy Doo the Cat, April's Adoptable Animal

Scrappy Doo is a 15-pound Maine Coon mix thought to be about five years old. He should be an only cat, as he can be rather aggressive toward other cats. It is unknown how he would get along with dogs or children. He is very affectionate and loving with people, and he would make a wonderful pet. He does tend to regurgitate his food easily, however, either because he eats too fast or needs a special diet. He is an indoor cat but enjoys walking on a leash outside. Please visit Scrappy Doo's profile on The NoKill Network to learn more about Scrappy Doo or to apply for adoption.


If you're entering the book giveaway, there is a daily option to share information about Scrappy Doo in order to earn more entries. If you're not entering the book giveaway, below are some links to pages/posts you can share/retweet if you'd still like to give Scrappy some additional exposure.

Nine Lives by Wendy Corsi Staub

When reluctant road trippers Bella Jordan and her son Max detour to Lily Dale, New York, they're planning to deliver a lost cat to its home and then move on, searching for one of their own. But the footloose feline's owner Leona Gatto has unexpectedly passed away, leaving behind a pregnant pet without a mistress, a busy inn without a keeper--and a lovable circle of neighbors who chat with dead people.

After agreeing to help out temporarily, sensible Bella doesn't need psychic gifts to figure out that a houseful of tourists and a litter of kittens lie in her immediate future--or that Leona was murdered. It's up to her to solve the case so that she and Max can leave town, but their new home--like Leona's killer--might just lurk where she least expects it.

February Giveaway and Adoptable Animal

*** Giveaway closed. Congratulations to Dianne C., the winner! ***

Happy 2019, everyone! It's hard for me to believe it's February already. Where did January go?

Time for another book giveaway! This week I'm featuring suspense novels by Cynthia Harrison and Hallie Ephron. Cynthia is the very first author friend I made online when I began this publishing journey back in 2013. She has historically been a romance author, but I'm thrilled she's finding her way into mysteries. Lily White in Detroit is her debut suspense novel, and it's wonderful. I discovered Hallie through the Jungle Red Writers, a fabulously entertaining blog run by several women mystery authors. If you're not familiar with the Jungle Red Writers, you need to fix that right away! Hallie's You'll Never Know, Dear is an entertaining standalone novel and not nearly as creepy as the cover suggests. I promise. United States residents are welcome to enter to win one or both titles and will receive my gently used book(s) if they win. Non-US readers can choose one of these books and, if they win, they will either receive a new paperback of their chosen title or, if the Book Depository does not ship to their country, an alternate prize of my choosing. Please see my website for the full rules.


It's also time to spotlight another adoptable animal! Meet the beautiful Lulu Belle.

Lulu Belle the Cat, February's Adoptable Animal

Lulu Belle is a nine-year-old domestic shorthair available through P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park, a no-kill shelter in Tinley Park, Illinois. Please visit Lulu Belle's Petango profile for details on how to contact the shelter.


If you're entering the book giveaway, there is a daily option to share information about Lulu Belle in order to earn more entries.

Lily White in Detroit by Cynthia Harrison

Private investigator Lily White has a client with a faulty moral compass. When the client is arrested for murdering his wife and her alleged lover, Lily follows her intuition and her own leads. If she’s wrong, she’ll at least know she did her job.

Detroit police detective Derrick Paxton remembers Lily from another case. He understands she suffers from PTSD and thinks her judgment is impaired. He goes after her client and the evidence he needs to close the case. When Lily is kidnapped, the case takes an unexpected turn.

In a sometimes racially divided city, a black cop and a white PI work together to peel back every layer to find the truth. What they find leads them to each other, but do they have enough to bring the true criminals to justice?

You'll Never Know, Dear by Hallie Ephron

Seven-year-old Lissie Woodham and her four-year-old sister Janey were playing with their porcelain dolls in the front yard when an adorable puppy scampered by. Eager to pet the pretty dog, Lissie chased after the pup as it ran down the street. When she returned to the yard, Janey’s precious doll was gone . . . and so was Janey.

Forty years after Janey went missing, Lis—now a mother with a college-age daughter of her own—still blames herself for what happened. Every year on the anniversary of her sister’s disappearance, their mother, Miss Sorrel, places a classified ad in the local paper with a picture of the toy Janey had with her that day—a one-of-a-kind porcelain doll—offering a generous cash reward for its return. For years, there’s been no response. But this year, the doll came home.

It is the first clue in a decades-old mystery that is about to turn into something far more sinister—endangering Lis and the lives of her mother and daughter as well. Someone knows the truth about what happened all those years ago, and is desperate to keep it hidden.

20-Book Giveaway and an Interview with Frankie Bow

http://perrykirkpatrick.com/sale/

Happy Saturday! If you missed yesterday's post, there's a huge Black Friday through Cyber Monday ebook sale in progress through Monday, November 26. All participating ebooks are either free or $0.99 USD (prices outside of the United States may vary; please verify all prices before downloading/purchasing). There's also a book giveaway associated with the sale, and I promised to share details on how to enter. More on that soon!

First, let's hear from Frankie Bow. Frankie is a fellow mystery writer, and I can tell you her character Molly Barda is fabulously funny. If you enjoy humorous mysteries set in academia, you'll want to check out Frankie's Professor Molly series. Take it away, Frankie!

http://perrykirkpatrick.com/sale/


How much of your real life ends up in your books?

As my bio states, Like Professor Molly, Frankie Bow teaches at a public university. Unlike her protagonist, she is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, and a perfectly nice office chair. So obviously the fictional Mahina State University has nothing at all in common with my real-life employer.

Okay, maybe my fictional world borrows a little from real life.

In fact, the elements that might seem over-the-top (administrators changing grades, turning a blind eye to plagiarism, pushing faculty to act as students' personal assistants, and generally doing anything they can think of to keep those tuition dollars coming in) are lifted from real news items.

Which of your books is your favorite? Is it the same book as your readers' favorite?

The Black Thumb
I like The Black Thumb for its will-they-or-won't-they romantic subplot, where Molly keeps breaking off and then re-establishing her engagement with Donnie. I had written myself into a corner with Molly and Donnie's romance. Donnie is a dreamboat in many ways—he's handsome, he's a great chef, and he really likes Molly—but he throws up some red flags. Because he was orphaned, he has a really simplistic, almost childlike idea of what a good husband and father does, which is take care of "his" family. So he can unintentionally come across as a little controlling, which Molly hates. He also has a blind spot where his awful son is concerned. Fortunately he's a quick study, and he can adapt to Molly's cues. Now, should Molly stay with him, or not? Heading unquestioningly to the altar wouldn't be in character for Molly, but neither would abandoning Donnie completely. I think I managed to thread that needle in The Black Thumb, and the following books have the repercussions of some of the decisions that were made.

The Nakamura Letters
A reader favorite is The Nakamura Letters, a novelette in emails told from Emma Nakamura's point of view. I really enjoyed writing it.


Has writing impacted the way you read for pleasure and, if so, how?

Knowing that what you read shapes how you write, I've become much more deliberate about reading well-written fiction. If I find too many typos or awkward phrases in a book, I'll abandon it and move on to something else. I find myself re-reading Sarah Caudwell's books. She's such a wonderful writer that reading her work is a blend of bliss and envy.

What projects do you have planned for 2019?

The Perfect Body
I just finished Book 8 of the Professor Molly Mysteries, The Perfect Body. Molly's had a baby; there's some fairly graphic treatment of breastfeeding and the new-mom experience. I'm currently working on Book 9, tentatively titled The Fever Cabinet. I'd also like to write another Miss Fortune mystery. I write licensed fan fiction in Jana DeLeon's Miss Fortune world, and there have just been some major plot developments in the main series. Possibilities abound!


The Case of the Defunct Adjunct
Thank you, Frankie! And yes, Frankie has a book enrolled in this weekend's sale. If you haven't met Professor Molly yet, now's your chance to read the series prequel for only $0.99 USD.

If you'd like to learn more about Frankie and her books, you can connect with her on the following sites: Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads
Now for the book giveaway! Enter the Rafflecopter below by November 26 for your chance to win twenty paperback books (United States only) or twenty ebooks/audiobooks (open to everyone) of various genres. Good luck!

Ebook Sale and an Interview with Ava Mallory

http://perrykirkpatrick.com/sale/

I hope those of you in the United States survived Thanksgiving. Now it's time to kick off the holiday buying season with a Black Friday through Cyber Monday ebook sale! All participating ebooks are either free or $0.99 USD (prices outside of the United States may vary; please verify all prices before downloading/purchasing). Some authors are also offering discounts on paperback books. You can find those under the Paperbacks section. This sale features clean fiction only, and there are over 150 titles featured in a variety of genres. Whatever you enjoy reading, you should have no trouble finding a book or two to fit your tastes. There is also a huge, 20-book giveaway associated with the sale. More on that tomorrow!

I had the pleasure of interviewing two of the authors participating in the sale. Today I'm focusing on Ava Mallory. Ava is one of the most prolific writers I know, and I was lucky enough to be involved in a box set with her a few years ago. Take it away, Ava!


How much of your real life ends up in your books?

Ava
Very little of my personal life ends up in my books. I'm afraid I'm not that interesting. Snippets from the real lives of people around me, however, always end up in a book. I think I should leave it at that. The less you know about that, the better.


Which of your books is your favorite? Is it the same book as your readers' favorite?

Mercy & Mayhem
Coughing and DonutsI love the first cozy mystery I ever wrote, Mercy & Mayhem. It's a permafree. I've given away thousands of copies, so I can't really tell if that's the one the readers love most. My best guess based on sales and feedback is Coughing & Donuts, another book in the same series, is my readers' favorite.


Has writing impacted the way you read for pleasure and, if so, how?

Yes, definitely. I read every night before I go to sleep. I find myself dissecting what the author did, silently applauding them for their plot twists and red herrings or taking note of their prose. It's a tough transition for me to take off my writer hat and just be a reader.

What projects do you have planned for 2019?

The short answer is so much. A more detailed response is that I plan to bring two series to an end and introduce new series for each of the genres I write. My pen names aren't public knowledge (yet). In addition to cozies and sweet romance, I write romantic suspense, rom-coms and thrillers. I'm actually slowing down this coming year to focus on my backlist and some other fun things.


Misbehaving
Thank you, Ava! Please also check out Ava's book in the Black Friday sale, Misbehaving. It's only $0.99 USD this weekend.

If you'd like to learn more about Ava and her books, you can connect with her on the following sites: Website | Facebook | Instagram | Goodreads
Tomorrow I'll have an interview up with another fellow mystery author, Frankie Bow, plus details on how you can enter the Black Friday weekend book giveaway. Stay tuned!

Winter Cozy Mystery Giveaway and Featured Adoptable Animal

*** Giveaway closed. Congratulations to Becky L., the winner! ***

It's getting colder here in the Northern Hemisphere, so in keeping with the season I'm giving away winter cozy mysteries written by two of my author friends, Sherry Harris and Auralee Wallace. Sherry's All Murders Final! is a delightful mystery starring a garage sale expert, and Auralee's Ring in the Year with Murder is perfect for readers who enjoy mysteries with a chick-lit feel. United States residents are welcome to enter to win one or both titles and will receive my gently used, signed book(s) if they win. Non-US readers can choose one of these books and, if they win, they will either receive a new paperback of their chosen book or, if the Book Depository does not ship to their country, an alternate prize of my choosing. Please see my website for the full rules.

I also want to try a new feature on my blog (and with my readers' group emails; click here if you'd like to join). Animal rescue is a cause near and dear to my heart, so I'd like to try spotlighting a rescue organization or an adoptable animal every so often. I know my readers are scattered all over the world, but you never know who this will reach and I believe any exposure helps. Plus, it serves as a reminder to those looking for their own pets that there are alternatives to breeders. Wherever you are, I'm sure there are many wonderful rescue animals looking for homes in your area. If you're in North America, you can find many of them on Petfinder. And if you're involved with animal rescue and would like to see your organization or one of your animals featured at some point, please email me at marlabradeen@gmail.com.

Without further ado, here is this month's featured adoptable animal!

Luke the Cat, November's Adoptable Animal

https://www.petfinder.com/cat/luke-43138397/ny/new-york/rescue-dogs-rock-nyc-ny1274/
Luke is a 7-month-old Domestic Shorthair rescued in October by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. Found with an embedded collar growing into his neck, he is now recovering at a vet clinic in New York City, up to date on his shots, and in search of his forever home. Luke loves to take little naps, and when you first wake him up he looks all sleepy eyed and it just melts your heart. He has long silky fur that he loves to groom; he is as soft as a pillow! He is great with people and would do well in a home with children. To learn more about this sweet kitty, visit Luke's Petfinder profile or, for details about his backstory, join Luke's Facebook group.

Those interested in adopting Luke can submit an application to Rescue Dogs Rock NYC or email info@rescuedogsrocknyc.org for more information. Luke is currently located in New York City, with transport possible to eleven surrounding states.

If you're entering the book giveaway, there is a daily option to share information about Luke in order to earn more entries. If you're not entering the book giveaway, below are some links to pages/posts you can share/retweet if you'd still like to get Luke some additional exposure. Let's help spread the word and find this sweet kitty a home!

All Murders Final! by Sherry Harris

When Sarah Winston started the virtual garage sale, it seemed like a keystroke of genius and the next logical step in her business. No more collapsing card tables and rainy-day washouts. But what began as a fun way to run garage sales during the long New England winter has become a nightmare of managing people and putting out fires. Online, she can avoid the crowds--but not the crazies.

She certainly never bargained on dealing with frightening threats. And when a client is murdered, it's time for Sarah to swallow her pride and seek the help of her ex--C.J. Hooker, chief of police. Forging a tense alliance, they search--online and off--for the killer. But solving this crime before someone else gets tagged seems virtually impossible . . .

Ring in the Year with Murder by Auralee Wallace

It’s been a tough year for Erica Bloom. And with hours left on the clock and a killer crashing the party, it’s not over yet…

This New Year’s Eve, Erica’s resolution is to have a great night—even if it kills her. She is, after all, at the party to end all parties: a Great Gatsby--themed gala sure to be the talk of Otter Lake, New Hampshire. With her perfectly finger-waved hair, borrowed pearls, and scarlet flapper dress, Erica is determined to be unflappable, despite the presence of her ex, Sheriff Grady Forrester, and his hot date, a bubbly blonde who has a hard time holding her drink. Literally. . .

In a plot twist as bizarre as a game of Clue, Grady’s girlfriend almost drops dead after her drink is poisoned. Who put the killer ingredient in her appletini? Suddenly the tables have turned and the sheriff has become the prime suspect. Now Erica has until midnight to clear the man she still loves—and in so doing just maybe win him back. That’s if the killer doesn't pop the cork again… and turn a New Year’s smooch into a kiss of death…

Salem's Cipher by Jess Lourey


A troubled codebreaker faces an epic plot reaching back through centuries of America's secret history.

Salem Wiley is a genius cryptanalyst, courted by the world's top security agencies ever since her quantum computing breakthrough. She's also an agoraphobe shackled to a narrow routine since her father's suicide. When her intelligence work unexpectedly exposes a sinister plot to assassinate the country's first viable female presidential candidate, Salem finds herself both target and detective in a modern day witch hunt.

Drawn into a labyrinth of messages encrypted by Emily Dickinson and codes tucked inside the Beale Cipher a hundred years earlier, Salem begins to uncover the truth: an ancient and ruthless group is hell-bent on ruling the world, and only a select group of women stands in its way.


Please be forewarned, Jess's book contains language and gore.
