Upcoming Sale

Hope you’re all doing well.  I’m still working on book ten.  I just wanted to let you know I’ll be having a $.99 sale on book 4, A Spartan Murder.  Officially, it starts on May 8 and lasts to May 26, 2020,  but you may see the sale price turn up sooner since I’ll set it before then to make certain it populates through in time.  I’m also lowering the price on books 2 and 3 (Death at Dinner and Stabbing Set with Sapphires) to $3.99.  So if you haven’t read them yet or know someone who might like them, now might be a good time to get them.  The Smashwords sale is still going on to the end of the month too, but I’m going to change which books are in it now that I have this sale going on.  Stay well!

Cassie Pengear Book 9: Murder Near Slaughter

cover of Murder Near Slaughter

Yes, there is finally a Cassie Pengear book 9. It’s called Murder Near Slaughter and takes place in a village in the Cotswolds . It’s available for pre-order now and it will be released September 17, 2019. Since I’m planning on doing a sale on some of the older books later this fall and that probably won’t matter much to people following this blog, I decided that, instead of the usual $2.99 pre-order/release week sale price, I’m putting it on sale for $.99 until September 21, then it will go up to $4.99. More information and links below.

Cassie Pengear was expecting a relaxing holiday in a Cotswolds village near Lower Slaughter, staying in a cottage borrowed from a friend of her landlady. She was not expecting to spend most of her first day there trying to find someone to give them the key to the cottage. And she definitely wasn’t expecting to walk in the front door and find a body on the sitting room rug. Now the local police consider her and Mrs. Albright suspects, and the London man she was counting on turns out to be Inspector Wainwright. If she wants to clear their names, Cassie will have to solve the murder near Slaughter.

A Bit of Housekeeping

Cassie Pengear Mysteries pictureJust a little bit of housekeeping.  I’ve gone through all the ebooks in the series and standardized their formatting.  Over the years, I’ve formatted a couple of different ways, and now I’ve found one method that I like (a program called Jutoh if you’re curious) so I went through and made everything the same across all the books and took care of a couple of typos that had cropped up while I was at it.  I only made one actual change to anything in the stories themselves, the name of a character who turns up in Death at Dinner and briefly in Stabbing Set with Sapphires (books 2 and 3) inadvertently shared a name with a recurring character who first showed up in a later book.  I didn’t want there to be any confusion over whether she was the same character (she isn’t) so I changed her name.  And then I didn’t want the change to cause any confusion either, so I’m blogging about it.  I did this before the recent sale on the bundle, so if you bought it during the sale, the name was already changed.  And now, back to work on book 9.
