Who is the Winner?

    November 13, 2019

— Congratulations to the winner of the Halloween Contest!
Autographed STRANGERS SHE KNOWS for you!
— For your amusement: a fun and silly holiday survey

My publisher put DEAD GIRL RUNNING eBook on sale…again!

Be patient with them. They’re so enthused about the Cape Charade series, they want to put it in every reader’s hand, and they’re going above and beyond in the way of sales and promotions.

You know why? Because of you. You wrote rave reviews, you told your friends, you talked it up in bookstores, you made your enthusiasm so wildly obvious that DEAD GIRL RUNNING and the whole Cape Charade series is now what we call a Word of Mouth book. Thank you! Thank you! The eBook is $2.99, regularly $7.99, and isn’t that an enticing deal?

Do you prefer paper books over eBooks? As a bonus, the mass market (pocket-sized) paperbacks include HARD TO KILL, the first short story of the Cape Charade series, and is discounted at BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.

If you have a friend who reads, please forward this letter to let her/him know about the sale to give them a great start on the all-star Cape Charade series. Reading is a gift to share.

We Have a Winner!

Being the fun-loving writing-witches that we are, Jayne Ann Krentz, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and I made a deal with you; if you’d agree to enjoy our newsletters (we are incredibly entertaining, she said with no modesty whatsoever), one of you would win three hardcovers and a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card. We had 3709 entries, which means many new reader-friends, and…

We have a winner! Join me in congratulating Anna-Therese of RI. This smart lady was already on our three author mailing lists. Like you!

Autographed STRANGERS SHE KNOWS for you!

Call 206-248-7248 or order online in hardcover or trade paperback on their website. Order now; I’ll be in Seattle to autograph books mid-November.

Want a lavender sachet with your order? Just ask! Remember, on eBay, one of the Christina Dodd lavender sachets was valued at $7.99! 😉

While in Seattle, I’ll be attending the author Christmas party. I promise in the next letter I’ll share a picture of the gang as we get together to gossi… Er, share professional publishing information.

Take the Holiday Survey

Finally, I have a fun and silly holiday survey for you:

Survey! When is the appropriate time to start playing Christmas music?
a) After Halloween
b) After Thanksgiving
c) December 25
d) Why are you talking about Christmas? That’s months away, I have lots of time to prepare, and — OH MY GOD!

Go to the survey to make your choice. Then check the results to see whether your choice is in the lead!

Until next time, remember:

What do you get when you cross a turkey with a centipede?
Drumsticks for everybody!

Happy Thanksgiving!
