“Name the Hollywood Studio” Contest! Win a Signed Paperback of Kilty #3!

The next Kilty mystery/suspense/romantic time travel humor (whew!) novel should be done soon and hopefully released sometime in July – but first I need to name a rival Hollywood studio! Right now, Catriona and Broch the Highlander work for Parasol Pictures. But the evil Fiona works for another studio, yet to be named.

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

BONUS!

I’m also looking for a title! I’ve sort of painted myself into a corner with this whole “Kilty as…” pun. I’ve had Kilty as Charged and Kilty Conscience… I’m saving Kilty as Sin for #4 because that will take place in Las Vegas. So I need a new Kilty or Kilt rhyming pun. Right now I’m leaning towards “Kilty Mind” but I always need more Kilt puns if you think of any!

Isn’t he cute? I might have to give Brochan a dog.

I’ll give out ten more free ebooks for my 10 favorite puns too! (put your ideas in the comments below or email me at amy@amyvansant.com)


Win up to 10+ Action Adventure eBooks & Gain Access to Deals & Steals on even more!

Murder at the Gearhart by Dianne Harman – New Release!

Dead chefs can’t cook!

From a USA Today and Amazon #1 Chart Bestselling Author comes the fourteenth book in the popular Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery series. Free with Kindle Unlimited.

When Kelly finds the murdered body of Chef Jessup in the walk-in refrigerator at the historic Gearhart Hotel, she has no choice but to fill in as the head chef for the prestigious James Beard Dinner honoring the legendary champion of American cuisine. She was only planning on being the sous-chef.

Join Kelly, Sheriff Mike, and their dog, Rebel, on a vacation that turns into a hunt for a killer.


Side Hustle

by A. J. Lape Bestselling Author of the Darcy Walker Series

Join Darcy Walker in season one of SIDE HUSTLE, a three-part serial where she leaves the Cincinnati, Ohio, area for the bright lights and bustling action of Los Angeles, California. Crimes are darker, people are more colorful, but one thing remains the same—Darcy Walker solves crime one way: living life like a verb.

Darcy Walker excels at lies, deception, and outthinking the bad guys. She has the résumé to prove it. While waiting to attend the police academy, she takes her talents into pizza delivery. Little does she know, life as a delivery driver isn’t all pizza and wings.

On a late-night run to a customer’s home, Darcy’s delivery turns deadly. She stumbles into a murder mystery straight out of a Hollywood script—a blood-soaked crime scene with no known witnesses except a suspicious man with a Mona Lisa smile. To compound the trifecta, the victim appears to have a past he’s been trying to outrun. Uncovering his secret-filled life leads Darcy and some new friends on a high-voltage journey, intersecting with a former adversary.

Readers call the Darcy Walker Series Stephanie Plum meets Veronica Mars meets The Blacklist.

    Kilty by Association came to mind.
    If I had a movie studio it would be called Ideal Studios.

    I immediately thought of Lockwood Studios. It’s a nod to “Singing In The Rain.” Gene Kelly’s character was Don Lockwood.

    Bombshell Studios (in reference to Marilyn Monroe)? If it’s a women-centric studio, focusing on films for women, it could be called It Girl Studios. The silent-era star Clara Bow was called the first “It Girl”, meaning she had that special something, that you can’t put your finger on, that makes her great…since the books are mysteries, maybe you could call it Hitchcock Studios…as for a book title, how about Kilty Look? Hollywood is so much about having the right look for certain parts, so maybe that would tie-in nicely with your plot.
