Yo ho ho!
I’m participating in a terrific free and 99c sale, so good, it’s just like Christmas, only without the mistletoe. Sorry, guys and girls.
There’s Mystery/Suspense, Romance, Paranormal/Fantasy, Humour (oh, all right then – Humor. Just this once, mind), Family/Inspirational/Heart-Warming, and there’s even some for Children. But this Christmas it’s mostly for grown-ups, the kids will have to wait till December.
My book is A Thrust to the Vitals, and it’s 99c. It’s under the Mystery section. You can’t miss it, because it’s the last in the section. 🙁
Here’s the link: http://stacyclaflin.com/promo/
PS I forgot to put the connection with the other Amazon sites. Sorry. I can’t put for all the other books in the Christmas in July promo as it was only done for the US site, but here’s my book, if you like mysteries:
If the promo price isn’t set on the book/s you’d like, just wait a while. These Global things are a swine to get the time right.
Yes, I know, it’s been a while. For which apologies. But, in mitigation, the next one is three-quarters finished. So yay, for me. 🙂
Anyway, without further ado, here’s
Detective Joe Rafferty thinks: nice easy sex murder, when young schoolteacher Laura Scott is found murdered and half-naked. It puts his problems – from his brothers accusing one another when ‘stuff’ goes missing from their lock-up, to the Chief Constable’s porno-starring granddaughter – in perspective.
Until it doesn’t. Because his brothers, amateur entrepreneurs in a small way till now, have started to branch out. And the CC’s porno-star granddaughter? He’s to make it all just go away, though the message isn’t clear about just how he is to accomplish this convenient disappearing act in these days of videos going viral on Youtube.
Even his nice easy sex murder—isn’t. Laura Scott might have been murdered, but she wasn’t raped or interfered with in any way. In fact, the case gets a whole lot more complicated. Because it seems Laura Scott was all things to all people, and everyone can’t be right. To Rafferty, like Russia to Winston Churchill, Laura turns out to be ‘A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.’ But it is only by finding the real Laura that he can find her murderer.
But you can still enter whether you buy my book or not. So there’s no reason not to enter. And I lowered the prices of a load of my other books, too.
Someone’s got to win!
So if you want to be in with a chance of winning a Kindle Fire or a $100 cash during February, you’ll find the link below.
You can also buy some awesome books at bargain prices (including Death Line, #3 in my Rafferty & Llewellyn British Detective series), though there’s no obligation to buy any book during the promotion.
My book has also been reduced in price at other Amazon stores (UK, Europe, etc) and at Kobo (though I don’t know if the same applies to the other books. You can choose to simply enter the kindle giveaway and then, if you decide to buy a book, just go to your own country’s site to purchase.).
You can enter this Rafflecopter Giveaway here: http://www.freekindlegiveaway.com/current-giveaways/
And here’s the Rafflecopter code:
Just to let you know that DEAD BEFORE MORNING, the first in my 15-strong Rafferty & Llewellyn police procedural series, is now FREE! (only in the UK so far; I hope to persuade Amazon to price-match in other countries also, but no luck so far).
I expect to keep it free for the foreseeable future so you can have an introduction to my work. I f you like British procedural series that have a quirky take on family life and police work it could be worth your while to download it.
ABOUT THE RAFFERTY AND LLEWELLYN SERIES

And, if you like Tudor Biographical Historical Fiction, don’t forget that Reluctant Queen: The story of Mary Rose Tudor, the Defiant Little Sister of Infamous English king, Henry VIII, is a Goodreads Giveaway until 30 April 2014, with the chance to win one of ten copies of the pb edition.
‘A very readable account of a fascinating woman who dared to stand up to Henry VIII and survived. It is thoroughly researched, admirably written and the author’s love of the Tudor period shines through.’
HISTORICAL NOVELS REVIEW
Here’s the link to the Goodreads Giveaway page for the book:
I’ve just returned from a week’s holiday in Venice. Beautiful place, but oh, those endless steps over the canals! My weary, couch potato legs proved unable for the challenge (an inability not improved when I decided to put myself on a starvation diet for the duration after checking out the restaurant prices). I had to keep taking a rest on the bottom steps and hope some great, gallumphing, fellow tourist didn’t stand on me!
I’ve today reduced the price of my biographical historical, Reluctant Queen, by $1 / 77p (though, as usual, amazon has altered the price upwards! Why do they do that?!). It’s meant to be $4.99, down from $5.99, but on the book page it’s showing as priced at $5.14 / £3.09. wish I knew how to persuade them to leave my prices alone (unless they decide to lower them and bear the price hit themselves!).
Any opinions on the two covers?
I was interested in trying out the green and white Tudor colours on the cover. I’m pretty pleased with the effect.
Reluctant Queen is currently on Amazon UK’s Biographical Historical Novels Best Seller list at #29.
The pb (due out 1 May 2014) is a Goodreads Giveaway that ends on 30 April 2014 with ten copies up for grabs! Here’s the Goodreads link: https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/83791-reluctant-queen-the-story-of-henry-viii-s-defiant-little-sister
