I have the cover for the next Cassie Pengear Mystery, so I thought I would show it to you a little early. The book will be available for pre-order early next year. I’ll let you know when I have an exact date.
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.
Just a reminder that the $.99 sale on the Cassie Pengear ebook of the first three mysteries will be ending soon. The official end date is December 6, but it does take a little while for the changes to go through, so you might be able to pick it up at that price through the end of the week, but if you’re planning on taking advantage of the sale, now’s the time.
A quick update because I wanted to let you know that I’m going to be extending the sale on the Cassie Pengear Mysteries bundle. There are a couple of advertising opportunities I wanted to take advantage of, so it will now be on sale until December 6th.
I mentioned when I posted about book 7 that I would be putting the bundle of books 1,2 and 3 on sale to get new readers for the series, and now I have the dates. It will be $.99 instead of the usual $6.99 from October 13 until November 6. Those are the official dates, but the sale price will probably come up a little before and stay up a little bit after because I want to make certain it gets to all of the sites for those dates. So if you’ve been thinking of reading the first three books or you know someone who would like them, Friday is a good time to get them.
I’ve added a new short story to the site, A Case of Two Clerks. You can read it here. I’ve also added it to the end of Killing at the Carnival as a bonus story. New downloads of the book should have the story in it, but I don’t have any control over whether or not retailers update previous copies (I know Amazon tends not to update old purchases), so if you want to download a copy with the new story, Smashwords is probably your best bet, and they have all formats, so it should work for everyone. The print version with the story is making its way to retailers, so if you find broken links to the print version, that’s why. I’ll try to get the links on the site fixed as soon as possible. I hope you enjoy reading it!
Just a quick reminder, this is the last weekend for the pre-order/release week sale on Cassie Pengear book 7: The Death Downstairs. You can find store links on the book’s page here.
I said in my last post that I’d have something else to post, and here it is, a little holiday present for all of you. A free short Christmas mystery featuring Cassie’s friends Kate and Ada. I’ve put it on its own page so it’s easier to read, so you can find it here. Enjoy!

edited to add: I wasn’t planning on releasing this as an ebook, but since I made a cover for it, I thought why not. you can find links here It’s free in most stores. Amazon doesn’t let me make it free directly, but they may chose to price-match it. If you’d like a copy to read on your Kindle, Smashwords has a mobi version that will work.
Here it is, the newest Cassie Pengear book A Drowning in Bath.
Cassie Pengear had just solved a difficult case in London and was looking forward to a quiet holiday in Bath where she could relax, visit the Regency sights, and read Jane Austin novels. Her cousin Milly had very different ideas of a how to spend their holiday and convinced Cassie to try the mixed bathing at the hotel baths. While there, they witness one of the guests being murdered. With the police insisting it was nothing more than a tragic accident, if she wants to see the killer caught, Cassie has no choice but to try to solve A Drowning in Bath.
It will be going up for pre-orders this week and be released on December 13, 2016. I’ll do a separate post when I start getting pre-order links. Like usual, it will be on a pre-order/release week sale for $2.99 then go to it’s usual price of $4.99.
A few other notes. I’m updating the formatting on some of the older books so they’re more consistent, so if you see something’s been updated, it’s cosmetic, nothing’s changed in the story. The only one that will have a major difference is Killing at the Carnival. I’ve added the first couple chapters of Death at Dinner as a sample to the end. I’m not that fond of samples at the end myself since I’m not used to guessing when a book will end on my e-readers, but I’ve had several people tell me they like it, so I’m trying it.
And there’ll be something else later in the week, but I’ll save it for then.
