My Miss Fancypants, Nosy Newfie Cozy Mysteries

Happy New Year! Happy New Release!

First, I hope your new year is off to a great start. One week in and I’m so far cautiously optimistic about it. The weather has been nice enough that the pup and I have managed a walk every single day so far. (She’ll walk in anything if it isn’t too hot. I draw the line at snow, rain, or temperatures below about 25 degrees Fahrenheit.)

I tried to find her a new doggie daycare last week and that did not work well. I don’t trust any place that smells that badly. So we will continue with her walking the neighborhood, toy in mouth, looking for dogs to bark at her.

But enough about us. Time to let you know that cozy #5 in the Nosy Newfie Cozy Mysteries series, A Sabotaged Celebration and Salmon Snaps is now out. I tried very hard to get the paperback and ebook versions out at the same time but ran into a bit of a snafu with the print version, so it may take a day or two for it to get to all the locations it needs to. (It was either that or release a print version with random chapters that had no page numbering.)

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite cover yet. Hope you enjoy it!

Amazon Ebook, Amazon Paperback, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Google

And updated for B&N Print.

Cozy #4 Is Out!

Alright. Took me a little longer than I’d wanted, but Maggie May and Miss Fancypants are back and solving mysteries yet again. Well, Maggie is. Fancy has a bit of a bunny obsession going on.

Ebook is already up on the main sites except Apple/iTunes and that should happen sometime today. It’s also on its way to all the other sites as well.

Paperback should hit Amazon today but it probably won’t be linked to the ebook for a few more days so you’ll have to just search for it to find it until that happens. The paperback version will also be rolling out to all the other fine places that carry paperbacks over the next few days.

Cozy #4 Update

Cozy #4 is in the works. I am making progress on it. I had hoped to have it finalized and published by mid-July, but I’m thinking it’ll be later than that at this point. (I try not to commit to specific dates because then it’s disappointing if I miss them. Sooner rather than later, though.)

Rest assured it is the book I’m working on now; I just need to work through a few story issues.

I love writing this series, mostly because I love Miss Fancypants as much as I love my real-life equivalent to her. And I also love all the wonderful characters that surround Maggie as well.

In this one I’m struggling a little more with trying to find that balance between writing about something bad happening but also keeping it fun and humorous. There’s a kid involved and I’m also including some bunny obsession issues for Miss Fancypants. Both of those could go a little too dark if I’m not careful, so it’s taking some extra time to make sure the series continues to feel “cozy”. (My mom called me on something in the last book already.)

Also, for those of you who’ve read the series to date you’ll know that I’ve chosen to write a cozy series where the characters have lives outside of the mystery. Finding that balance between covering those other developments and covering the mystery has been another challenge I’m working through since some pretty significant events are happening on that front as well.

So that’s where we are. The book is coming. And, since it won’t write itself, time for me to get back to it.

And Cozy #3 Is Out!

A Buried Body and Barkery Bites is now live in paperback and ebook on Amazon and in ebook on Google, Kobo, Nook, and a whole slew of other places. It’ll also be on Apple soon. The link above will take you to Amazon or you can click here to find all the stores where it’s available. And, don’t forget, it should also be available through most libraries, but you just may have to ask your librarian for help.

(And, by the way, this is not my dad’s birthday, but my mom wanted it out in time for her to order a copy for my grandpa for U.S. Mother’s Day on the 12th. So I’ll be doing a little price promo on book 1 for my dad’s birthday instead.)
