Christmas-in-July

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. 🙁

The Spanish Connection #17 Rafferty and Llewellyn Mystery

JUST PUBLISHED! No 17 RAFFERTY AND LLEWELLYN SERIES

The_Spanish_Connection,_BK_17_1600x2400_(Ebook)A nine-months pregnant wife, a murder victim found down a trench in an archaeological dig, minus his fingers, and very limited time, meant that Rafferty wasn’t a happy bunny. Superintendent Bradley, media darling and determined to stay that way, only added to Rafferty’s stress.

They discovered that their murder victim was small-time crook and drug dealer, Joey Briggs. He had vanished from Spain, where he worked for Charlie Carver, a Mr Big of Spain’s Costa del Crime. But Rafferty’s visit to Spain was cut short when to Abra went into labour. And despite his promises that he’d be there at his child’s birth, wouldn’t you know the French air traffic controllers had staged their usual summer strike.

Superintendent Bradley demanded he get Charlie Carver who’d be a big feather in his cap from the brass. But Rafferty was convinced Carver wasn’t the murderer this time, whatever else he might be guilty of. Becoming a daddy was a big thing for him, in more ways than one. Because it led him to the true murderer, with a motive as old as time.

Brand New Rafferty & Llewellyn!

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

ASKING FOR IT EBOOK COVER FROM SELFPUBBOOKCOVERS.COM 72dpi-1500x2000

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.

PUBLISHED AT LAST! All the Lonely People, Rafferty & LLewellyn #12

LONELY PPLE BRIT TEC SERIES EBOOKselfpub-72dpi-1500x2000 (13)

#12 Rafferty & Llewellyn series

Finally got over the last hurdles with this book and published it to Amazon last night. So pleased. And so relieved! I swear that malevolent fate that follows my poor DI Joe Rafferty around has transferred its attentions to me. 🙂

But it’s done now, in spite of the lost disc, in spite of the endless copy- typing to update the digital edition, in spite of my hatred of copy-typing and the unwelcome attentions from the fates, I finished sorting everything out. And it feels wonderful!

I’ll get busy today and upload it to the other retailers, too.

Heres the blurb and the links:

All the Lonely People

#12 of 15 in the Rafferty & Llewellyn British Detective Series 

A Little Laughter. A Little Mayhem. A Little MURDER…

For readers who like cozy mysteries, humorous mysteries and police procedurals. 

When Detective Inspector Joseph Rafferty visits his local pub for a quick drink, he’s looking to forget his troubles, not add to them. His ex-fiancée Abra is still refusing to talk to him, and he’s fast losing hope of a reconciliation. But Rafferty is not destined to enjoy his drink in peace. Because a man is found dead – stabbed in the pub’s car park – and a preoccupied Rafferty is to lead the investigation.

What at first appears to be an open and shut case quickly becomes a lot more complex. The witnesses all plead alcohol-induced amnesia, and Rafferty’s habitually cautious sidekick, Sergeant Dafyd Llewellyn, isn’t helping either—casting doubt on all of Rafferty’s conclusions.

And as Rafferty wrestles with the case, he also has to wrestle with Abra’s determination to avoid their problems. Soon, he is in despair on both counts…

The twelfth book in the quirky, not quite so Traditional British mystery series.

NEW COVER FOR DEATH DANCE, MY LATEST DIGITAL RELEASE

I decided to change the cover on DEATH DANCE No 13 in the Rafferty and Llewellyn procedural series, my latest digital release.

While I loved the colours in my first choice, they didn’t blend with the black/red/white colour-scheme of the others in the series, so it had to go! One of my impulse buys, alas.

All about the indie life v traditional publishing: See my article on the storyreadingapesblog

I wrote an article about my experiences both before and after I took up the indie author lifestyle for thestoryreadingapesblog. I enjoyed writing it and I’ve had some lovely, appreciative comments for my honesty (Rafferty’s family wouldn’t be impressed!). If you’re contemplating the indie life yourself, you could do worse than take a look. Here’s the link:

To Kindle, or not to Kindle?

Are you thinking of buying a Kindle? So am I. I’ve read a lot about them and I want one! I’ve given my husband a few hints about what he can buy me for Christmas and it’s definitely not scarlet underwear. I already buy kindle books for PC and have quite a collection waiting to be read. I’m currently enjoying While the Savage sleeps by Andrew Kaufman.


I’ve also considered buying an iPad, but they’re too expensive for our budget. They look tremendous, but the screen on a kindle is reckoned to be far superior when you only want the gadget to read books, which is my requirement. And then there’s the amazon factor to consider. Amazon is the largest market for ebooks, I understand they even have an App which enables you to download from iPad and other ebook formats, though I’ve yet to find a need to try this. I read widely and I also have a need to buy non-fiction for research and sheer pleasure, so it’s the Amazon’s kindle for me.

Let me know what you think and what your preferences are.
