It was A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT

    October 18, 2016

    In this newsletter:



    Today, A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT is out and most of you, my dear and faithful readers, do not care. A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT includes the three previously published Virtue Falls short stories … and you already have them. But some readers are new to the series and some readers prefer a compilation. So! A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT includes:

    THE LISTENER: Misfit and computer security expert Cornelia Markum hacks into a text conversation between unidentified Virtue Falls residents … and realizes she’s stumbled into a murder plot.

    THE RELATIVES: When relatives invite themselves to visit a wealthy couple’s Virtue Falls home, events take an unexpectedly dark—and fatal—turn.

    LOVE NEVER DIES: A murder committed. A love lost. A ghost haunted by his past. Only one woman can right all the wrongs… If she can survive the night…

    These Virtue Falls short stories are available for purchase as singles.

    A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT also includes the alternate conclusion of acclaimed action-filled adventure OBSESSION FALLS, Readers’ Guides and excerpts from the newest Virtue Falls thrillers, BECAUSE I’M WATCHING (out now) and THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM (out September 2017, and previously unpublished extras from the full-length suspense VIRTUE FALLS. You can find the alternate conclusion and the Readers’ Guides on my website. The chapters are new.

    You can buy A DARK AND STORMY NIGHT in eBook (even with the extras it’s too short for paper.) Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks


    THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM

    Two chapters of the next Virtue Falls suspense, THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM, are excerpted in BECAUSE I’M WATCHING, so many of you have been asking for details. The book is done, edited, and set for a September 2017 publication. I’ve established a page on my website with a cover my assistant created (the final cover won’t be ready for about four months.) As I know more details and the buy links go up, you’ll be the first to know!


    BECAUSE I’M WATCHING reviews

    As of this writing, on Amazon BECAUSE I’M WATCHING has 99 reviews and an overall rating of 4.9 stars out of a possible 5. You know this book is dear to me, and I want to thank all of you for enjoying Jacob and Mad Maddie’s story, and an extra thanks for those of you who took your time to spread the word.

    I made a mistake

    Yes! Yes! All right! I misspoke! What I should have said is that the Kindle versions of my historicals from Avon Books are available for $1.99 when you have previously published the paperback from Amazon. Which is a great deal and a benefit a lot of readers have requested. I think that may be true of Nook, too. Here’s my historical page; the series are listed in the sidebar. Here’s the Books by Series and in Order page.

    Finally, a lot of you wrote me to express your condolences on the loss of our dog, Lizzie. I wish I could contact you all personally; please know you have my heartfelt thanks. As always, my readers are kind and caring, and it’s wonderful to have you in my life.
