A MURDER FOR THE BOOKS #1 in Cozy Mysteries on Amazon Kindle!

11/15/18 was a “banner” day, not only because A MURDER FOR THE BOOKS (eBook ed.) was on a great $1.99 sale on Amazon, but also because it hit #1 in Cozy Mysteries!  (It also reached #48 on all of kindle!)

I love the “banner” (ribbon) it received!
