You’re busy, so I promise this is a quick letter! After the last extremely long one, I owe you that.
Winery Name Survey
My new series, Cape Charade (DEAD GIRL RUNNING book #1, April 24), is a spin-off of Virtue Falls and features the warm and beloved Di Luca family from my Bella Terra series. I’m finishing book #2 of the series (out early 2018) and while the family winery is Di Luca Wines (naturally!), I discovered I need a couple of quirky Pacific Northwest winery names. I asked on Facebook and got great, funny suggestions. If you’d like to help, would you visit the survey and vote on two of your favorites out of the ten I selected? Thank you!
You can pre-order DEAD GIRL RUNNING:
Trade paperback (large format): Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Books-a-Million
eBook: Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, GooglePlay

More Good Stuff for THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM
RT Book Reviews have declared THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM, one of six finalists for their 2017 Award! The review says, in part, “Remarkable storyteller Dodd returns for a new installment in her dangerously thrilling Virtue Falls series. In the previous books of the series, readers were treated to pieces of the amazing evolution of Kateri Kwinault, now the newly elected sheriff of Virtue Falls. This book is the payoff Kateri fans have been waiting for, as Dodd weaves together the story of two women who have faced death and come out stronger and more determined. This book is a fantastic blend of vengeance, mystery, passion and murder!”
You can order THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM:
Hardcover: Books-a-Million, Barnes & Noble, Amazon
eBook: Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks, GooglePlay
Audible audiobook or iBooks Audiobook
The paperback will be out March 27!
THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM Readers’ Guide
Finally, THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM Readers Guide is up for your readers’ group. Sample questions:
— Kateri and Lilith have a bitter sibling relationship, but in the end, Lilith stands up for Kateri. Do you have a sibling? How would you describe your relationship?
— Merida tells Kateri that she chose the name Merida because it means “sorrow.” What does your name mean? Do you feel connected to the meaning of your name?
Please remember you don’t want to read the questions unless you’ve read the book because they’re full of spoilers!
Fate Hands The Three-Armed Cover Another Run at Fame
Get it? Fate HANDS the Three-Armed Cover…
In case you haven’t heard, Vanity Fair did a celebrity photo shoot and somehow Oprah ended up with a third arm. As you can imagine, my fans have gone wild with joy. Thank you to everyone who emailed, Instagramed, Tweeted and Facebooked me about the mistake, and of course thank you to Vanity Fair and Oprah.
You can read about the Oprah mistake (and Reese Witherspoon’s three legs!) here.
