There’s something intriguing about solving mysteries from the great beyond. Just ask Carolyn Hart, Cleo Coyle, and Gayle Leeson, three popular mystery authors who include a ”ghostly sleuth” in their long-running series.
Enjoy another fun group of mysteries from Penguin authors for your June reading pleasure-A Premonition of Murder: A Dream Club Mystery by Mary Kennedy, Title Wave: A Booktown Mystery by Lorna Barrett, A Shattered Crime: A Stain-Glass Mystery by Jennifer McAndrews, Dead End Street: A Museum Mystery by Sheila Connolly, and Murder, Handcrafted: An Amish Quilt Shop Mystery by Isabella Alan.
June is often time to get hitched, so let’s start with Wedding Bel Blues, the first in a new series by Maggie McConnon. Belfast McGrath has spent 15 years avoiding her brash Irish family.
Back when I penned my first novel at the end of the last century, I thought that being an author meant sitting at my desk writing books. I also thought it was the publisher’s job to promote those books so that we both made money. Silly me! Once upon a time that was true, but by the time I sold my first book, publishers had abdicated this responsibility for all but a handful of their authors. Promotional efforts had become the responsibility of authors.
Long day today. Meetings and deadlines, traffic and headaches, arguments and resolutions . . . but now the children are asleep, the spouse is dozing, and dinner was tasty and filling. Finally, it’s time for you!
