The first in A Cookbook Nook Mystery series comes out in 3 months. I know, that’s at least 90 days, but it feels like minutes to me because of all that goes into publishing a book. I’m breathing, but barely. Yes, I know some of this inability to breathe is because the fourth book in A Cheese Shop Mystery series just came out: TO BRIE OR NOT TO BRIE. Thanks to all my readers, the book hit the Barnes and Noble best mystery list as well as the Bookscan list. Whee!
And yes, I know the shortness of breath could also be because I’m already writing the third – yes, third – in the Cookbook Nook series. I just turned in book two and am outlining the third. Time flies when you’re having fun. For the third book, I’m looking for titles of your favorite cookbooks. I want to include some of them in the next book. If you send me a cookbook name, whether your suggestion makes it into the book or not, you will be included in the Cookbook Nook Favorite Cookbook contest. One lucky winner will win a basket similar to this:
Write to email@example.com to enter! The winner will be chosen June 1.
In addition, I’ll be having a COOKBOOK NOOK launch CONTEST . The winner will come from my newsletter list, so make sure you and your loved ones are signed up by July 1st, click here. I’ll announce the winner on July 2nd when FINAL SENTENCE comes out!
Some of my fans have asked how they can help me promote my books. Nice, right? If you are among them, the best way is by word of mouth. Tell a friend. Share the news on Twitter and Facebook.
