25 Novels to Die For!
From an enclosed convent, via a stashed suspect brother, loan sharks, and a pub: all contain a murder mystery that DI Joe Rafferty must solve.
A THRUST TO THE VITALS
Can DI Joe Rafferty find the real murderer before he is forced to arrest his brother, Mickey, for the crime?
With his wife-to-be’s wedding budget spiraling out of control, and a series of muggings now escalated to murder, DI Joe Rafferty’s attempts to control the situations, land him in hot water on both counts.
ALL THE LONELY PEOPLE
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.

I thought you might be interested in how we’re doing on this ambitious attempt at bestseller-dom.
Just a few minutes ago, I checked Amazon, and we’re at:
On Amazon.com – we’re 490 overall in store. Though I seem to recall somebody said at one stage we were at 150.
Apple: Still waiting for it to appear on Apple
B & N Nook: BN ID: 2940153481937
It’s pretty good! I don’t think we’re going to meet our main target of the USA Today bestseller charts, but that was very ambitious. Still, who knows – it’s available till March 27, so there’s plenty of time yet.
Thanks to all of you who have spent the 99c / 99p cost of this book, and also thanks to those of you who have reviewed it. You’re worth your weight in gold!
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.

Ava Mallory is the amazing woman who organised all the authors who feature in this book. Organising authors – not a job for faint hearts. I think she’s really Wonder Woman!
She’s also a woman of mystery, hence her author pic!
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.
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.

In Ava Mallory’s world, chocolate is a vegetable and life is a great, big adventure!
When not writing mysteries, Ava can be found surfing the internet, binge-watching her favorite shows and movies, or corralling her children.
There! Having read what Ava plans to achieve next year, you have to agree with me that she’s secretly Wonder Woman!

Finally! I’ve done it. My two Rafferty & Llewellyn Box Sets are available on Apple. Phew!
‘Contagious Detective Duo.’
I swear I was cursed with Apple. Whatever I did, there was something wrong with every book I tried to upload. Metadata – wrong. Cover – wrong. Don’t mention the other big ‘A’ – wrong. In fact don’t mention anybody, apparently including your own website – wrong.
Anyway I’ve finally done it to Apple’s liking. Miracle!
I really need a lie down now, but I’d better get on and upload the rest of my books while I’m on a roll!

Sorry, my Aussie friends. We couldn’t persuade Amazon to price-match to free. But its original price is teeny. Honestly.
