Hi, everyone!

Happy summer! What a bunch of fun reading I’ve got planned for you. Read on…

FIRST: I have a couple of advanced review copies (ARCs) of STIRRING THE PLOT, the third in the Cookbook Nook Mysteries, that I'm giving away on Goodreads. The book comes out September 30. If you write reviews and post them on Amazon, Goodreads, a blog, or the like, and you would like to win the book, enter HERE!!  

SECOND: As for Mystery Lovers Kitchen…did you know we’ve been blogging for 5 years? Aside from the daily blog posts including recipes, we have had almost forty cozy culinary mysteries published by Berkley/NAL over the past five years. We’re celebrating our 5th anniversary with a weeklong giveaway!! Check us out between July 14th and 20th. Rules will apply. Mystery Lovers Kitchen

THIRD: Until July 31st, on Killer Characters we’re having a COZY DAYS OF SUMMER contest, where we are giving away bunches of cozy mysteries. Each day we’re offering a new giveaway. Leave a comment to win. No rules but that!

FOURTH: In August, I’ll be having a contest on my Facebook page to promote the launch of STIRRING THE PLOT. So make sure you “like” me to get in on the action! Four fabulous authors will be joining me for the contest: Kate Carlisle, Krista Davis, Hank Phillippi Ryan, and Hannah Dennison. We'll be giving away books, swag, gift cards, and more!!

If you haven’t preordered, STIRRING THE PLOT, here’s a link.

From the back cover:

Trouble is brewing with a dash of murder.

Halloween in Crystal Cove, California, is a big deal, involving a spooky soiree where the Winsome Witches, a fund-raising group, gather to open up their purse strings and trade superstitions. But party magicians, fortune-tellers, and herbalists are only the beginning of this recipe for disaster. Jenna Hart has packed The Cookbook Nook chock-full of everything from ghostly texts to witchy potions in anticipation of the annual fund-raiser luncheon. But there’s one unexpected addition to the menu: murder. When the Head Priestess of the Winsome Witches is found dead, there’s plenty of blame to go around, and Jenna will have to use more than just sleight of hand to conjure up the truth…

LASTLY: As of this issue, I'm trying something new. Every newsletter, I'll give away either a signed book or a $10 Barnes & Noble gift card (U.S. residents will get a choice. International readers will receive the gift card - delivered via email) . That’s right, every newsletter.

Here's how to enter: Open and read these newsletters.

Yep, it's that easy!

At the end of each newsletter, I'll include a winning email address, chosen at random from my mailing list. If it is yours, you'll have one week from the newsletter's email date to contact me to claim your prize. Couldn’t be simpler, right?

The winner this time is (partial email for privacy's sake): c*nic*****n@a**.n**

And now…for your summer sweet tooth:
