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!
I hope you’re all doing well right now. This is just a quick post to let you know that Smashwords is having a sale and I’ve added the first 6 Cassie Pengear books to it. You can find them here. https://www.smashwords.com/books/byseries/18561
Just a quick post to let you know I’ll be having a sale on the Cassie Pengear bundle next week (starting Nov 18 officially). I’ll start lowering the price to $.99 this weekend and the sale will run through the end of the month. You can find all the buy links here.
The Body in the Box Room is going to be on sale for $.99 starting Sept. 27th until Oct 5th, so if you haven’t read it yet or know someone who would like it, now would be the time to buy it.
All of the buy links are on the book’s main page here
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.
Smashwords is having a year-end sale until January 1, and I’ve put Death at Dinner, Stabbing Set with Sapphires, and A Spartan Murder on it. They’re 75% off, so $1.25 each, so if you’ve been waiting to get them or you know someone who hasn’t read them, now’s a good time. Smashwords sells books in epub and mobi format, so they should work with whatever ereader you use. The coupon codes are right on the book’s page on Smashwords. Here are the links.
Just 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.
I’m having a sale on the bundle of Cassie Pengear mysteries 1,2, and 3. It will be $.99 starting today until October 25, 2018. So if you haven’t read the first three books in the series or know someone who might like them, now’s the time. The links are on the book’s main page here.
I’m also going to be doing a sale on book four, A Spartan Murder, starting at the end of the week and going until the 25th as well. Links are here.
I have the release date for Mugs, Murder, and Mayfair. It will be out on May 1, 2018 in ebook, and the print version to come soon after. As I usually do, I’m having a pre-order/release week sale. The ebook will be $2.99 instead of $4.99 until May 5th. Pre-order links are below. I’ll add more as I get them.
Cassie Pengear was expecting a quiet week helping her friends Kate and Ada inventory their Mayfair tinkering/haberdashery shop, with nothing more exciting to worry about than a shaving mug thrown through the window, hiding the evidence of a student prank, they assume. But then a body is found a few streets away, and the inspector in charge of the murder case begins to suspect Kate. Now Cassie must help her friend by finding the connections between mugs, murder, and Mayfair.
And a little bit of video I’ve been playing around with.
edited 5-9-18 to change price, new release sale ended 5-5-18
I just found out the other day that some people have had a glitch with their copies of Death Downstairs on Amazon where they were getting the wrong ebook file (thanks to Amy for letting me know about it). It should be fixed now, and Amazon is sending out an update to existing files. If yours doesn’t update automatically, try going to accounts&lists and from the drop down menu go to manage content and devices and then you can search for Death Downstairs in the box midway down the right side of the page. When you find it, there should be an update button to the right. Clicking that should fix it. Since I’m sure some of you returned the book already, I’m going to put it back on sale until next week so you can re-buy it at the pre-order price. If anyone still has trouble, let me know.
edited to add– the sale will end on Dec. 23, 2017. It might take a couple of days for the normal price to filter through all the sites, but that is when I’m setting it back. If anyone still has trouble with the book, let me know.
