A Little Holiday Cheer – A few things to be happy about in December
1. Successful Sticky Buns
If you read about my Monster Chocolate-Orange-Cinnamon Stickybun FAIL, (recipe is there) the good news is I tried again and they were a big success. Heck, they even LOOKED like sticky buns this time. I forgot to take a picture of the whole tray but I had my mother (the giftee) take a picture to prove my redemption. ——–> Having eaten the whole thing myself this time, I didn’t steal any of these. …At least no one caught me.
2. Pineapple Gingerbread Men is on 99c SALE!
Pineapple Gingerbread Men SAVE $3 Amazon US | Amazon UK
Book SEVEN of the rollicking mystery series from Wall Street Journal and USA TODAY Best-Selling author Amy Vansant has Pineapple Port’s “Santa” found dead…wearing a gingerbread man costume…with a shelf-elf stuffed in his mouth… Just another day in Pineapple Port!
It’s been getting GREAT reviews and I’m super happy and grateful!
When Declan and his uncle Seamus find a dead woman in the master closet of a house for sale, Seamus hopes that means he’ll get a deal…but private detective Charlotte Morgan is more interested in why the body has a note pinned to its chest:
Where are you going to keep YOUR clothes?
Too bad Charlotte’s neighborhood “moms,” Mariska and Darla, can’t help with this mystery — they’re on a treasure hunt that’s definitely going to cost them their weekend… and maybe their life!
4. BIG BOOK BOGO EVENT
I’m having a giant BOGO event on AuthorsXP.com — featuring 70+ books either free or discounted! All sorted by genre so you can find the ones you want and grab them!
5. Giant Christmas Book Fair!
I’ve also got a giant Holiday Book Fair full of books ready for download, but free and on sale!
And if you don’t have a tree, just throw some lights over your three-foot-tall teak pineapple. Everyone has one of those. It isn’t just me, is it?
7. 2020 is almost over!
Try not to think about the fact the first half of 2021 doesn’t sound that great either.
Some Sales and New Releases from my author buddies…
The Most Majestic Crime of the Year: Missing Masterpiece: A Massanutten Tale 99c Preorder
This time, they’ll leave Massanutten Mountain behind to venture off to uncharted waters.
Uncharted for them anyway.
Flying to London was the easy part.
Their newest creation, The Majestic Norway, had been selected for auction aboard a prestigious cruise ship bound for Norway.
They’d planned to sit back, relax, and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere.
Maybe even check off one of their bucket-list items and view the spectacular northern lights.
As usual, things didn’t go as expected.
Amid suspicious Vikings, irate security guards, and a terrified cruise staff, LauraLea is missing her gun within hours of departure.
What have they gotten themselves into this time?
