daffodils this past week
Despite the early signs of spring, I’ve got an increasingly large pile of books to read. My Kindle makes it so easy to buy new books on a whim, especially with so many at “bargain basement” prices. And for my husband’s birthday, I got him a Kindle, too, so no more whining, “I don’t have anything to read!”
What’s on my TBR pile?
THE MOST UNSUITAB LE WIFE by Caroline Clemmons
I couldn’t resist this book, I mean at $3.99 it’s a real “steal” not to mention that I like Caroline’s writing and there’s even a bit of a mystery involved as Pearl Parker tries to protect her family and winds up falling in love.
SALEM'S LOT by Stephen King
Believe it or not, I never read this. But I remembered the movie and wanted to read it. I like King’s ability to show you what’s in a character’s head, so I’m really looking forward to this spooky story.
A TRAIL OF INK by Mel Starr
I love these medieval murder mysteries featuring Hugh de Singleton. They are so evocative of that period in history and I really like Hugh. This is the third book in the series and I enjoyed the first two, so I can’t wait to get started with this third one, especially since I’m hoping the lovelorn Hugh will finally find his soulmate while he’s searching for the murderer.
I have a ton more, but those are the top three that I intend to read next, and now on to my good news…
Springing Amy’s Good News!
Five Star/Gale acquired my contemporary mystery, WHACKED!, and it’s already been through most of the editing process. It should be coming out in mid-2012, and I’m dying to get the cover. This mystery is a humorous, cozy mystery set in my own “backyard” in coastal North Carolina. I had a blast writing it—I actually wrote it during National Novel Writing Month three years ago, so it’s been a thrilling ride so far.
Finally, I have a new historical mystery, THE VITAL PRINCIPLE, out now! That’s right—you can buy this now at Amazon Kindle and Smashwords.
In THE VITAL PRINCIPLE, Knighton Gaunt is hired by Lord Crowley to prove that a spiritualist, Prudence Barnard, is a fraud. But right after a séance, Lord Crowley is murdered and the blame falls on Pru as the “outsider” in the close-knit group of guests. Knighton’s not too sure she is innocent, but he’s willing to give her the benefit of the doubt and begins an investigation that leads him through a maze of twisted motives and tension in Regency England.
That’s it for now, and I really want to thank Caroline for having me!
