Another Newbie--Yay!

 Get it on Amazon HERE

Just got word that THE TROUBLE WITH DAD is now available as an audio book. When this happens, I get codes to give away (with the strong hint that a review would be nice). If you'd like a code, email me: pegfish(at sign)yahoo.com. Give me your email address, and it'll be on its way!

For those who don't know the Kidnap Capers series, it's a three-book story arc in which a young legal secretary becomes--kind of accidentally--the head of a gang that kidnaps bad people and "encourages" them to change their ways. All are available as e-books (all distributors), print books (Amazon & Draft2Digital), and audio books (Audible/Amazon).

Book 1: Kidnap(.)org Robin becomes a kidnapper and finds out she's good at it.

Looking at Covers-Please Weigh In




The Kidnap Capers is a three-book series starring Robin and her "hoods," who take down crooks by unorthodox, often humorous methods. 
Book 3 will be out on September 1st, so we're trying to settle on a cover. I'd like input from readers on what's eye-catching and gives the sense of a humorous but suspenseful story.
Here are their covers (these are for the audio books because that's what I can find right now):

Keeping the red/black theme, we got these two possibilities. They'll be fine-tuned once we choose a basic idea.



If we skip the idea of coordinating colors, I like this one too:



Please tell me which cover you prefer, or choose elements that work for you that might be incorporated into a new cover (e.g., "I like the lettering in X but the picture in Y.")

It's Been One of Those Months

We all have them, and at some point we wake up and ask, "Where did the time go?"
My wake-up was my hair. I was trying to make it behave two mornings ago, and I'll confess, I had unkind thoughts about my stylist. What did she do wrong?
Then I looked at the calendar and saw how long it's been since she cut my hair.
Oh. My bad.

The time between early May and mid-June has been a blur of not good things, but I did a radio interview yesterday with Patzi Gil of Joy on Paper, a syndicated author-talk show out of Clearwater, FL. Patzi has been great to me since she discovered, wholly on her own, the first of the Kidnap Capers, KIDNAP.org. Not only did she contact me for an interview last summer, but she also promised to do a second if I let her know when Book #2 came out.

It did, so I did. Here's the website, the interview should be searchable there soon. https://radio-joyonpaper.com/

All that to say that I realized I hadn't yet added PHARMA CON to my website. Here's the info:

The Kidnap Gang, Robin, Em, Cam, Hua, and Tom, take on a pharmaceuticals manufacturer who cheats the public and the government daily and prides himself on getting away with it. The problem is that Neil Preston surrounds himself with "helpers": a sleazy lawyer, a single-minded security manager, a slippery PR man, and his cunning sister. The gang will first have to get past them to get to Preston, which means everyone has to play his role perfectly.

Questions to be answered: Can they get past Preston's complicated security and into his Stalinesque estate? Does the appearance of Robin's old flame mean complications they can't overcome? Will the hooker they've hired as an assistant help or hurt the caper? And what clever methods will the gang come up with to convince Preston to end his cheating ways and use his company's power for good?

Available in print (Amazon) and e-book (link above). Audio is under way!

And More in the Free Category

NOT DEAD YET...is a book that's hard to categorize. If I tell you it's a mystery I won't be lying, but what kind of mystery is it?
Well, a different kind.
There's no detective who drinks more than he/she should and struggles against the system.
There's no recently-divorced woman who just opened a business and has a crazy best friend who forces her to investigate local crime.
There's no serial killer whose methods make you want to hurl.

What is it then? A mystery within a mystery, for one thing. Four curiously talented yet oddly shy squatters must solve a murder, but they have their own secret to hide.
And when you get it, you'll be gobsmacked.

NOT DEAD YET...is free this week for Kindle readers, so there's no risk. If you like it, I'd appreciate a review (as I always do!)
It's also available in print (Amazon, bookstores) and audio (Amazon Audible). In mid-July it will be released on other e-book distributors as well (B&N, Kobo, etc.). If you read library e-books, ask your library to order it then.

Free! Free! Free!

Research shows that the word free is one of the most compelling in the English language. Everyone wants something for free, even if they don't need it.
And we know that nothing is really free, right?
Still, if you're a mystery reader, you can get a free e-book right now using the link below. I joined with a group of mystery writers who offer their book free for a very limited time in order to get attention and interest. The "free" books will usually  require you to submit your email address, which means you'll get a newsletter from the author at some point. I don't think that's a huge price to pay, because you can always unsubscribe if you don't want more of them.
I chose KIDNAP(.)org as my giveaway, and I put up 500 copies. They're already half gone, so I think it's going well. I'm at work on the second book of the series (of at least 3), so if you enjoy the free book, it won't be long before you can read further adventures of this "gang" of kidnappers.
NOTE: The second book will probably never be offered for free. That's how we get you!😉


Here's the link for a free copy of this book or a bunch of other intriguing titles:

At the Point Where I Can Tell You

 I sent my next book to the copy editor a few days ago, which for me is a major turning point. It's a commitment of sorts; the book that...
