Giveaway on GoodReads: Killing Despair

I'm doing a giveaway on GoodReads for copies of KILLING DESPAIR from now until September 2nd (That seemed so far away at the time!)
The widget is on the side...If I did it right. Otherwise, just go to Goodreads and figure it out. That's what I had to do! https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/105511-killing-despair-loser-mysteries
Note: My recommendation is that you read at least Book #1 before this one, which is Book #3.

What It's Like When You're Expecting...a Book

My copies of KILLING DESPAIR arrived yesterday, and it got me thinking that expecting a book is a lot like expecting a baby.
*When you tell people about it too early, all those months of waiting detract from the excitement.
*You can't be sure when it's going to happen, despite the dates the experts throw out there.
*There are periods of discomfort, and you have to remind yourself that something good is going to result.
*Friends are supportive, but they're seldom as excited as you are about the coming event.
*You wait for it to be "over" but soon learn there's more work after it's "over" than you ever imagined.

Loser Mystery #3 and Dead Detectives, Too

I know I've said it before, but it looks like this time Loser #3* really will release on August 9. If you're signed up for my newsletter (below on the right side), you'll be reminded when it's available on Amazon, and I'll post on FB when I have actual copies in O-town and for signings. My itinerary is posted here, just above this box, so you can track me down in various places if you want a personalized copy.

*Killing Despair is the third and probably final book in the Loser Mysteries. Though I love Loser and have enjoyed sharing her adventures, right now there's no continuation that does her justice in my head. I refuse to write a book just because a series is doing well, because it's too easy to get stale and repetitive. Loser was broken in Killing Silence, better but a long way from healed in Killing Memories. In Killing Despair she faces the things that almost destroyed her and comes to a sense of peace about it all. I hope you have enjoyed her journey as much as I did.

I've been asked several times about the third Dead Detective mystery (Dead for the Show), and in turn I've been asking the publisher--for months now. It got sidetracked (no one explains how or why) but they've promised they'll get to it the last part of August. I don't know what that means for a release date. It's been edited, but I haven't seen cover art or been asked for the ancillary stuff (Yes, authors get to write the catalog copy, the back cover copy, etc. We love it. No, really.) I'm guessing that means it's months away, so maybe it will be someone's Christmas present.


BTW, thanks to all those who ask about the next book. It's not bothering an author when you ask; it's affirming that what we're doing is worthwhile to others.

It's Getting Close!

  You might think "Christmas!" when you read that headline, but for me it's the release of SISTER SAINT, SISTER SINNER on Dece...
