Let’s Get Together at Buns and Roses!

On October 16th, 17th and 18th, let’s do something book related! I’m participating in Buns and Roses, a tea that gathers great authors (check out this list!) and readers to talk books and writing while benefitting literacy. Because this year it’s a virtual tea, we can all attend.

Here’s how it works; you buy a ticket for the virtual tea on Sunday Oct. 18 2-5pm CT (info here. You must purchase before Oct. 1.) During the tea, Jayne Ann Krentz and I will be virtually hosting a table.

To make your experience even more fun, on October 16th & 17th, there are add-on sessions that include author chats, cooking demonstrations, dance lessons, and more. Jayne Ann Krentz and I will be discussing romantic suspense and answering your questions. Click here to find more of your favorite add-on sessions ($5/ea.) There are only twelve spots left in our session; I hope to see you there!

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!

Christina Dodd’s Anniversary Cake

Sometimes in an author’s career there comes a moment that resonates with emotion. I had one of those times on Saturday February 8 when, at The Poisoned Pen Bookstore, those wonderful booksellers presented me with a cake and balloons to celebrate my 30th publishing anniversary. I was reminded of my first autographing at the bookstore where I was a bookseller (Carol’s Book Corner in Houston) when a customer presented me with a cake she’d had decorated with the cover of my first book, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW.

Yep, I shed a few tears.
Then I ate cake.

Both cakes were yummy. I wish I could share them with you all, dear friends. Thank you for a wonderful 30 years!

As an author and reader, during these tough times I’m concerned about the fate of great independent bookstores like The Poisoned Pen. If you feel the same way, give your independent bookstore a visit or if that’s not possible, call and have them ship you a book or five. Want an autographed Christina Dodd book? The
