I’m finally done all the new covers (well, my lovely cover designer Steven Novak is). Thank you for all your help as I struggled to find a new theme for everything that better represent the series!


“Name the Disco” Contest! Win a Signed Paperback of Pineapple Disco!

The next Pineapple Port novel should be finished and released in May – but first I need to name Jackie’s disco. There was a reference to Jackie’s underground 55+ dance club in Pineapple Lies, and in the new book, the characters find themselves trapped inside that disco. Who has trapped them? Why? How will they escape? You’ll find out in Pineapple Disco!

But first, I need some help naming the disco!

Give me your name ideas for an underground 55+ disco in the comments below or email me at amy@amyvansant.com and I’ll pick ten favorites to win a free copy when the book is released. The grand prize winner will get a signed print copy!

An Impawsible Situation (Food Bowl Mysteries Book 1)

By Katherine Hayton

Usual Price: New Release Sale: .99

When his food is at stake, Thor must sacrifice nap-time. When Thor’s human puts the wrong brand of food in the cat bowl, it ruins his entire day. After numerous entreaties prove ineffective, Thor embarks on an adventure to find out what’s gone wrong. Confronted by a closed food store, a distraught shopkeeper, and with the crime of a kidnapped wife to solve, the task might prove Thor’s undoing. Add a gang of heavyweight cats and a council worker pursuing strays into the mix, and the brave little cat is soon out of his depth. The right brand of cat-food is an obvious necessity. But if Thor can’t keep his wits about him, he might end the night in the animal shelter rather than curled up on the couch at home. ‘An Impawsible Situation’ is the first in a new cozy mystery series told from the cat’s POV. Thor’s adventures continue with ‘Cat Red-Handed’ and conclude with the third in the series ‘You’re Kitten Me.’ Scroll up and one-click to solve the food bowl mystery today!

      The Rock Around The Clock (or just The Rock Around)
      The Jitterbug Palace
      Scat Cat’s Dive Bar
      Bugle Boy’s Boogie Woogie (reference to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy)
      The Rat’s Nest (in reference to The Rat Pack, & also to the rats used to make women’s hairdos in the 1940s)
      I’ve only just finished the first Pineapple Port book (& I LOVED it!), but I’m thinking if she owns a club, Jackie must be a music buff, & would name her club after a popular song or band (like calling it Crickets, after Buddy Holly and The Crickets, but maybe that’s a little obtuse?)…

    When I think of disco I think of Donna Summer. How about “Dim all the Lights” or “Last Dance”.
