Wine, Cheese and Technical Difficulties with Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Christina Dodd

Wine, Cheese and Technical Difficulties with Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jayne Ann Krentz, and Christina Dodd
Filmed Wednesday, November 19 at 4CT
ACTION!

— 3:53CT, text from Jayne Ann Krentz: “You may have to start without me I’m having computer problems here.”

— At that exact moment, upstairs in my office where I will be filming, I seat myself in my chair, adjust my computer, and see Susan Elizabeth Phillips in a promotional video wearing a leopard print shirt JUST LIKE THE LEOPARD PRINT SWEATER I’M WEARING!!

— I race downstairs, tearing off my sweater, shirt, necklace. The Husband races after me, shouting, “What are you doing?” (Actually, when I tear off my shirt, he always races after me. Which is why our marriage has lasted since the earth crust cooled.) In my closet, I do a frantic reconnaissance, grab a blue shirt and black jacket, put them on. The Husband says I need color; I find a carmine necklace (also a reason we’ve been married since the earth’s crust cooled, he gives good jewelry) and race upstairs.

— 3:58 Phone rings. SEP says, “Where are you?” I tell her I’m ready, sit down, adjust shirt, jacket, necklace. We go live.

—4:02 Jayne Ann Krentz appears, computer problems fixed, and we’re off and running.

Susan Elizabeth Phillips brought a cheese stick. Jayne Ann Krentz brought an unopened bottle of wine. We promised wine, cheese and technical difficulties — and we delivered.

As Susan says, when we start talking she forgets we’re live and she loses her filter. I didn’t know Susan had a filter, but I guess it’s true of all of us — when we get together we chat about the books you love, and about friendship.

What is WRONG ALIBI about, you ask?

WRONG JOB

Eighteen year old Evelyn Jones lands a job in small town Alaska, working for Donald White in his isolated mountain home. But her bright hopes for the future are shattered when he disappears, leaving her to face charges of theft, embezzlement — and a brutal double murder. Convicted, she faces life in prison.

WRONG NAME

Her escape leaves her scarred and in hiding, isolated from her family, working under an alias at a wilderness camp. Bent on justice, intent on recovering her life, she searches for the killer who slaughters without remorse.

WRONG ALIBI

At last, the day comes. Donald White has returned. Evelyn emerges from hiding. The fugitive becomes the hunter. But in her mind, she hears the whisper of other forces. Can Evelyn untangle the threads of evidence before she’s once again found with blood on her hands…the blood of her own family?

The famed Amazon 1-star review: “I hated this book because it is all about sex, sex, sex. The story gets lost in the descriptive sex pages which are numerous.”

Actually, it’s a plot driven book in a plot driven paranormal series that has cult status among readers, but the review makes me laugh.

Snort Your Beverage! Jayne Ann Krentz and Christina Dodd Live!

New York Times Bestseller and friend Jayne Ann Krentz interviewed me in a Zoom/ Facebook event. There was laughter and engagement with readers, and we discussed what we were reading, what we were writing, how focused we are on food during the time of COVID, and had a tour of my office. Also, Jayne talked about the return of the dust bunnies! As so many of you said, it was like eavesdropping on one of our conversations. Enjoy!

WRONG ALIBI Cover Poll Results

A quick explanation: My publisher made three completely different covers for my next book, WRONG ALIBI, coming Dec. 29, so I thought — why not make this fun? We made a poll asking you to vote on your favorite,  The day the newsletter went out (join) saw the biggest number of visits every recorded on my website, and as of this writing, we have 6,965 hits on the poll. That’s a lot.

1,922 of you followed the link from the poll page to the WRONG ALIBI book page, where you saw the final cover.

The voting breakdown:
#1 won the popular vote with 47%.
#2 was your least favorite with 19%.
#3 was second with 34%.

The really good news is — #1 was the cover my publisher chose! On the WRONG ALIBI page, there’s a bonus — the cover comes to life with a swirl of birds. I’ve saved it as a screensaver, and you can too. Just click “Download Video” and enjoy!

A lot of you liked the WRONG ALIBI story description: In the Alaskan wilderness, the hunted can become the hunter.

The survey is still up if you’d like to vote. I’ve had a grand time reading the comments!
