FREE 4-Mystery Boxset – Part of the Rafferty and Llewellyn 17-Book Series

FREE FOR YOU! FIRST FOUR NOVELS IN RAFFERTY & LLEWELLYN MYSTERY SERIES

‘DARN GOOD READ.’ 17-STRONG SERIES

Tired of reading avid authors’ descriptions of serial killers’ sadism?

Long for a mystery that introduces you to an engaging, often failing, main character?

Then meet Detective Inspector Joe Rafferty. He tries. He fails. Educated in the University of Life, not Oxbridge, so he certainly isn’t a detecting genius like Sherlock Holmes. He’s got his problems—A Ma who’s pushing him to marry again; a larger family who don’t always obey the letter of the law; and a po-faced partner who looks with a jaundiced eye on his often mercurial conduct of cases – never mind his family. His family – many of whom think that if he must be a copper, he might at least have the decency to be a bent one. And then there’s his boss…but the less said about him the better.

4-NOVEL MYSTERY SERIES BOXSET

‘Contagious detective duo.’

DEAD BEFORE MORNING #1

A murder victim with no face. A media calling for answers. And a detective with a family not averse to a little gentle law-bending. 

Newly-promoted British Detective Joe Rafferty and his partner, Sergeant Dafyd Llewellyn in a murder mystery involving the killing of a young woman bludgeoned beyond recognition, with no ID and found in a secure place to which she supposedly had no admission. Who is she? How has she gained access? And who was responsible for her murder?

DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN #2

A murder victim with no known enemies. A dead patriarch. And a detective who’s struggling.

Rafferty and Llewellyn set out to discover who killed Barbara Longman, a woman with no known enemies. But it soon becomes apparent that the murder has been committed by someone who must have known the victim very well.

DEATH LINE #3

A murdered seer who failed to predict his own future. A partner who refuses to see the murder as an inside job. And a Detective who’s coming up empty. 

The detective duo try to solve the murder, with his own crystal ball, of the famed ‘seer’, Jasper Moon. Gradually it becomes clear that Jasper Moon was a man of many parts, not all of them very savoury.

THE HANGING TREE #4

A disappearing murder victim no one would miss. A witness destined to haunt him. And a Detective who felt ambivalent about getting a conviction. 

The detective pair investigate the case of the vanishing hanged man. But when the dead man turns up for a second time, they discover he was a man many had reason to hate. Because Maurice Smith, charged years earlier with four child rapes, had escaped on a legal technicality. Was someone acting as the public executioner, dealing out their own form of justice on the legendary Hanging Tree?

If you like the Detective Bill Slider novels, the Dalziel and Pascoe series, and Stephanie Plum, the multi-book Rafferty & Llewellyn series brings the wit, wisdom and willingness to bend the law with the best of them.

17-STRONG SERIES

Buy this book to learn about the enterprising Joe Rafferty, his ne’er-do-well family, and po-faced partner.

Alannah Foley – aka ‘The Pyjama Writer’ – is the author of light cosy mysteries, short fiction, and bunch of other maverick titles that won’t fall in line.

She was raised in the UK and did a five-year stint in her Aussie birthplace in her twenties, where mozzies regularly used her for target practice. She managed to return to Old Blighty devoid of shark or snake bite, however, and currently lives in picturesque Cornwall with her cycling-obsessed partner.

To date, she has two fiction series – the Campervan Bushman Mysteries and Tales from Corny Cove – both of which are light, easy reads with a few twists, turns and tickles along the way. Her nonfiction titles span topics as diverse as capers in a campervan, the vagaries of living with an obsessive cyclist and her adventures Down Under.

Interview with Savannah Mae

Author with #25KillerCozies

SAVANNAH MAE AUTHOR INTERVIEW

 SC: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m Savannah Mae. I’m new to self-publishing, but not new to writing professionally. For the last decade, I’ve been writing articles for multiple publications and for websites. I’ve always toyed with the idea of writing a book but pushed the thought out of my head. Earlier this year, I turned forty and declared that this year of my life would be a year of saying no to fear. I did what I thought was impossible and started writing cozy mysteries.

SC: Was there a certain time in your life you knew you wanted to write?

I don’t recall any specific moment when I realized I’d wanted to write. I do, however, remember each and every time I convinced myself otherwise. Intuitively, I think I always believed it would happen someday.

SC: What are you currently working on?

I’m working on the second book in my Jinx Cove witches series. The first book is included in this 25-novel bundle.

We have yet to get the Apple link and the Amazon link will only be available on the publication date, 27 December 2016.

SC: Of the books you’ve written, which one is your favorite and why?

My favorite is the only one I’ve completed thus far, Mayhem in Jinx Cove. I’ve probably read it a dozen times or more. I’m proud of what I’ve created and hope readers enjoy it.

SC: What books have most influenced you as a writer?

I love mysteries. When I was growing up, the Nancy Drew series and the Hardy Boys series were staples on my bookshelves. I read them over and over again.

SC: What do you find to be the most challenging part of writing? And the most rewarding?

The most challenging part for me was working up the courage to let others read it. Handing it off to beta readers and editors was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done.

The most rewarding part is the process. I loved getting out of my daily routine and letting my imagination run wild.

SC: What book is on your nightstand?

I’m currently rereading Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone’s Alphabet Series.

SC: What can we look forward to seeing from you in the future?

In 2017, I plan on releasing the next two novels in my series.

SC: Is there anything you’d like to share with your readers?

I want to thank them for taking the time to get to know me and I hope they’ll love Mayhem in Jinx Cove as much as I do.

Anyway, here’s Ava’s interview. Come back tomorrow, and I’ll have another featured author rounded up!

AVA MALLORY AUTHOR INTERVIEW

 SC: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My name is Ava Mallory. I like to call myself a genre hoarder. Primarily, I write cozy mysteries, but because you can never have too many mysteries in life, I also write psychological thrillers and romantic thrillers.

Prior to writing full-time, I’ve worn many hats. I was a hospice nurse for twenty years while also raising children, chauffeuring children to activities, volunteering as a child advocate, and sub-contracting as a copywriter for a small publishing house.

Since I became a full-time writer, my life hasn’t changed much. I basically still do all of the above, but this go around, I do it in my pajamas. (Don’t tell my children that! J)

SC: Was there a certain time in your life you knew you wanted to write?

When I was 4 years old, my mother took my younger brother and I to a Storytime activity at our neighborhood library. I don’t know if that was the first time we’d gone or just the most memorable time. When the librarian walked in the room with a book in hand (a Dick and Jane book, if I recall correctly), I knew right then and there that I would grow up to be a writer.

As is often the case, life had other plans for me. I veered this way and that and found a long-time career as a hospice nurse, but I never once lost sight of my goal to become a full-time writer.

SC: What are you currently working on?

I always have several projects going at once. I’m editing the next book in one of cozy mystery series now. I plan on publishing it in January. I’m also outlining a new novel for my thriller series and developing a new cozy mystery series to be released next fall.

SC: Of the books you’ve written, which one is your favorite and why?

I absolutely adore my Mercy & Mayhem novel. It’s the first in my A Mercy Mares cozy mystery series. It’s the most personal of my novels. Each character is loosely based on people I’ve met and/or worked with in my life.

SC: What books have most influenced you as a writer?

I’m an eclectic reader. The books that have influenced me most are To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb, Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier, most of Agatha Christie’s works, and most recently, books by Emma Donoghue.

SC: What do you find to be the most challenging part of writing? And the most rewarding?

The most challenging part of writing for me is conquering my own fear. I think we all deal with fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of being exposed. The most rewarding is finishing any project. Typing The End still makes me giddy every single time.

SC: What book is on your nightstand?

(1.) The Silent Witness by Brittainy C. Cherry (2.) Evelyn, After by Victoria Helen Stone

SC: What can we look forward to seeing from you in the future?

I plan on releasing three new cozy novels in the coming year. One will be the second book in my paranormal cozy mystery series and the other two will be new novels in my A Mercy Mares series.

I also write psychological thrillers under a pseudonym. I’ll have three releases for that pen name next year as well.

SC: Is there anything you’d like to share with your readers?

I’m thankful for each and every reader. Knowing that someone has read my work means the world to me. I love interacting with them and receiving feedback from them. I cannot wait to share new works with them and some fun perks for newsletter subscribers.

NOTE:

I have three titles in the box set. One is a short prequel to my A Mercy Mares series. The next is the first novel in that series and the other is the first in my paranormal cozy mystery series. I’ve attached cover images for each.

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.
