Cassie Pengear Killing at the Carnival coverThe first Cassie Pengear mystery, Killing at the Carnival, is now free most places (Amazon is still $.99 since I can’t directly set it free there, but hopefully they’ll price match it soon)  I’m not sure if this will be a permanent thing or just until after the holidays; I’ll see how it goes.  The links are all the same as on the book’s page.  I’ll have another update soon, I just have to get a couple of things in order.

Death at Dinner Pre-order and Sale

The second Cassie Pengear book is slowly getting put up for pre-orders.  It’s the first time I’ve done pre-orders, so it’s a bit of an experiment. The book is due to be released January 5, 2015.  And to celebrate the release, there’s a special pre-order/release week price of $2.99.  After that, it will go up to its regular price of $4.99.  Here are the details.

death-at-dinner2500wDeath at Dinner

Cassie Pengear did not want to spend her evening acting as a parlor maid even if the house was in Mayfair, but her landlady’s friend was desperate and it was only night.  But then one of the guests collapsed at the table.  Now poison is suspected and the cook is convinced she’s the main suspect and will be locked away if Cassie doesn’t solve the death at dinner.  A steampunk traditional cozy mystery 56,000 words, approx. 220 pages

I realized I forgot to put the page count on the Amazon page, which I can’t fix right now.  That’s something that drives me crazy when I don’t know how many pages a book is, so I’m very sorry about that.  I forgot it on the Killing at the Carnival page too, but I think that’s all been fixed.  I haven’t finished formatting the print version (having a long debate with myself about the merits of Garamond vs two different forms of Baskerville Old Face vs Bookman) so I didn’t have the page count handy at the time.  I think that’s about it.  Again I’ll edit this post as I get links to stores.  Thanks for reading!

If you came here from my other site, you know that I’m launching a new steampunk cozy mystery series Cassie Pengear Mysteries (if you didn’t come from there, I also write fantasy as Lisa Anne Nisula).  The first book is slowly going live as an ebook.  The print edition will be out next month.  I will add buy links as they become live.  The first is Smashwords, and as a thank you to people who’ve been waiting for new work from me, I’ve made a coupon code for Smashwords that will take the book from $.99 to free.  It’s SF87U and will be good until the end of January.
