MUSIC DEDICATIONS from the BLUE RIDGE LIBRARY MYSTERY SERIES CHARACTERS

Being a little older, I remember all those radio shows that featured dedications from one person to another, and I thought it would be fun to share the songs that some of the characters from the Blue Ridge Library Mystery series would dedicate to one another.

So, without further ado, here they are!

Note, this lists song titles and the performer(s), not necessarily the composers. Click on the YouTube link to hear the songs!

PAST DUE FOR MURDER Cover Reveal

#CoverReveal time!

The third book in my Blue Ridge Library Mystery series has a cover, and it is a beauty. It includes the exterior of the library and a new character who shows up in book three — Loie, the abandoned kitten adopted by one of my main characters.

 

Sony Deal!

This is actually still difficult for me to believe, but it’s true — Sony Pictures Television has optioned book one and book two of the Blue Ridge Library Mystery series (A MURDER FOR THE BOOKS and SHELVED UNDER MURDER).

The proof, from Publishers Marketplace today:

 

 

 

 

We don’t know yet exactly what Sony has in mind, but I will keep you posted as I know more!

Cover Reveal for SHELVED UNDER MURDER

The second book in the Blue Ridge Library Mystery series has a cover!

SHELVED UNDER MURDER will be published by Crooked Lane Books on July 10, 2018.

It’s already up for preorder on many sites, including Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

Signings! A MURDER FOR THE BOOKS Launches in Style

I was fortunate to have had three book events celebrating A MURDER FOR THE BOOKS over the last week:

First, a book discussion and signing for my book launch on Tues., Dec. 12th at Scuppernong Books in Greensboro, NC.

Then a book signing at the Triangle Town Center Barnes & Noble in Raleigh, NC on Sat., Dec. 16th

And finally, a book signing at Page 158 Books in Wake Forest, NC on Sun., Dec. 17th

All three went splendidly and I would like to thank the very gracious bookstores who hosted me and my book!
