A few clips from readers,
carefully culled from
favorable reviews on Amazon.

    Fit to Curve is a skillfully written mystery with complex characters and such a fascinating plot that I’m way behind on my chores.
    This series is a favorite with interesting plots and wonderfully drawn characters. Wish the author would write more of them. The type of book you don’t want to end.
    A bed and breakfast mystery. Super characters, well developed. You’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. A mouth-watering, good read. Love the old lady with the sharp wit. I’d like the recipes, too.
    The plot builds very slowly. But once I got into it, I was hooked. I liked the characters, and you get a lot of insight into them.
    This is too fine a novel to be mired in the mystery/suspense ghetto. It’s a good mystery, with a complex plot, all the mystery trappings, but the characters are rounded and attractive. The theme seems to me to be a consideration of morality – not just sexual morality (or immorality), though there’s some of that too, for those who like to read such descriptions, but all kinds of morality: for how high a price might you sell your soul?
Heart Attack is a great read!
    This couple are a great addition to the mystery genre. Sharp and interesting with a bit of humor and spice.
    Snappy dialog. Geoff and Ellen are a great team. He has a definite intuitive method of assessing info and arriving at conclusions that baffle and irk his cohorts. Ellen is more conventional and together are a great team. Unusual mystery not easily solved.

COMING SOON:

 

 

Charleston Story: seeking agent. Atlanta Story, final edit.
Drosselmeyer Chronicles (finished, first draft) and Just Rewards (current work in progress).

Quarterly roll of the dice: another five-day give-away.

This isn’t a book shelf, of course it’s not.

But can you lichen it to one,
and picture little volumes, bound in bark, printed with gall ink,
fanned around the oak tree trunk?2014-09-27_14-44-49_819

Well, if you managed that, we’re past the stressful part.

Every three months Kindle Direct Publishing allows its authors a chance
to promote books by giving them away.

And that time for me has rolled around again.

The next five days: October 3-7, 2014
Friday through Tuesday
the Kindle e-book versions of
Fit to Curve   and   Heart Attack
can be downloaded for free.

If you don’t have a Kindle Device
there is a free Kindle Ap available for your computer, your tablet, your phone
or your microwave oven (all the recent models, anyway, the ones that can charge i-phones).

So, if you’re a mystery reader
you might enjoy meeting Geoffrey and Ellen in their first two adventures.

Fit To Curve

Heart Attack

Nothing to lose, at this price, and a world to win.

The Asheville Story                —               The Williamsburg Story

This promotion is Amazon planet wide,
not just the United States,
so come Canada, come Britain, come France,
Germany, Italy, Spain,
India, Japan, Mexico, Brazil.

Oops! And Australia. Maybe I got this in before they noticed.
Which way does the sun go?

Italy is my last untouched market,
somewhere from six to six thousand in the others.

The Ellen and Geoffrey Fletcher Mysteries are of a cozy character but written for adults.

KDT, Kindle Daylight Time, seems to track with PDT, Pacific Daylight Time,
3-4 hours from now (time of post).

They’re only a little more free.

When you start at 99 cents, the distance is not so great, even all the way to zero.

Still: someone you haven’t read, might like, might not, it’s an opportunity.

So, if you’re a Kindle reader (or have one, or have one of its alter egos) and like to read mysteries,
you might like to meet Geoffrey and Ellen in their first two adventures.
