Blackmail in the Ballroom and New Covers

cover of L. A. Niusla's mystery novel Blackmail in the Ballroom

I know I’ve been quiet for a while, but finally, some exciting news. There will be a new Cassie Pengear book coming out on November 23, 2021. I’m getting the pre-orders set up and I will post links as I get them. The book is called Blackmail in the Ballroom. Cassie gets drawn into a murder investigation when a blackmail payment is interrupted by a corpse. There’s a longer summary below.  I’ll start posting buy links when I have them.  The books will have a pre-order/new release price of $.99 then go to $4.99

And some other exciting news, you may have noticed the cover for Killing at the Carnival on the side here has changed. Since this is book 11, it seemed like a good time to update all my covers. The new ebook covers should all be up by the end of the week, the print ones will take a little longer, as print always does. It’s a little more than a tweek but not a huge change.  You can see them all on the Books page I hope you like them!

When Cassie Pengear’s cousin Milly asks her to help a friend leave a blackmail payment at a party, Cassie’s first impulse is to say no. That is until she realizes Milly will help no matter what she says, and when, not if, Milly gets in trouble, it will be up to her to get Milly out of it. But the payment doesn’t quite go as planned, being interrupted by a dead body. And as Milly was involved in the payment, Cassie finds herself dragged into investigating the murder and the blackmail in the ballroom.

Glitch with Death Downstairs

Cassie Pengear Mysteries book 7I 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.

Sale Extended

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.

A Kate and Ada short mystery

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.
