31% off Joy

Happy Halloween to all you spooky specters!

October 30th & 31st, Joy will be 31% off at Dreamspinner Press. Pick up your copy here! And if you enjoy crossover in your books, our hero, Gideon Joy, will be making a cameo in my upcoming holiday novel, Color of You.

Blurb: Down on his luck is Gideon Joy’s default state. He doesn’t know why he expected anything different on his cross-country trip, but not surprisingly, the hits keep coming—literally this time. Gideon strikes a moose with his car in New Hampshire, not only totaling his own vehicle, but damaging one belonging to local construction worker Silas Bright. He has no choice but to stay in Lancaster and take a job that’ll pay for the repairs. And in a town so small, Gideon’s always running into Silas. What starts as annoyance between them soon blooms into something much more romantic. But when Gideon’s notorious bad luck rears its head yet again, how many disastrous dates will Silas be willing to weather before realizing Gideon’s not worth it?
Despite Gideon’s desire to remain in the quaint community that has accepted him as one of their own, past fears of inadequacy threaten the very joy he left Los Angeles to discover. If he’s to find a happily ever after with Silas, Gideon must learn that sometimes it’s okay to not be the best. And true happiness might be waiting in a small town nestled among the great White Mountains.

Highway 2 Heck

It's been a month, guys. I've finally been able to play catch up, but between coming home after Hurricane Irma, an epic road trip to Colorado, attending GRL, and prepping for two releases in December and one in January, I was a tad overwhelmed!

My Highway 2 Heck road crew was a fantastic group to hang out with, and it was the first vacation I've had in a while! I wanted to share a few photos of the adventure with you all.

Carne asada fries and Japanese coffee in San Diego!

Livin' it up in Vegas.

On the road in California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado...

The Grand Canyon!

Epic GRL was epic.

Tiring, yes, but what an amazing time! It was great seeing the sites with excellent company, and GRL is always the highlight of my year. Will I see you at GRL 2018 in Virginia?

35% off C.S. Poe titles

DSP Publications is having a 35% off sale from October 2 - 5, which includes ebooks and paperbacks of suspense/mysteries! Pre-order Southernmost Murder for $4.54 or pick up the Snow & Winter paperbacks for $9.74 each!

Snow & Winter series: Curiosity kills. Or, in the case of antique shop owner and amateur sleuth Sebastian Snow, curiosity leads to dead bodies. With the reluctant help of his boyfriend, NYPD homicide detective Calvin Winter, and armed with his magnifying glass and understanding of Victorian America, Sebastian sets out to solve the murders he keeps stumbling upon. Sebastian's antiquing knowledge becomes a critical key to every investigation he gets tangled up in with Calvin. And with the two at one another's side through thick and thin, the partnership between Snow and Winter evolves into something that'll last long after the cases are closed.

Southernmost Murder: Aubrey Grant lives in the tropical paradise of Old Town, Key West, has a cute cottage, a sweet moped, and a great job managing the historical property of a former sea captain. With his soon-to-be-boyfriend, hotshot FBI agent Jun Tanaka, visiting for a little R&R, not even Aubrey’s narcolepsy can put a damper on their vacation plans.
But a skeleton in a closet of the Smith Family Historical Home throws a wrench into the works. Despite Aubrey and Jun’s attempts to enjoy some time together, the skeleton’s identity drags them into a mystery with origins over a century in the past. They uncover a tale of long-lost treasure, the pirate king it belonged to, and a modern-day murderer who will stop at nothing to find the hidden riches. If a killer on the loose isn’t enough to keep Aubrey out of the mess, it seems even the restless spirit of Captain Smith is warning him away.
The unlikely partnership of a special agent and historian may be exactly what it takes to crack this mystery wide-open and finally put an old Key West tragedy to rest. But while Aubrey tracks down the X that marks the spot, one wrong move could be his last.
