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.
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.
