This weekend – even as we speak! – the Josh Lanyon Fan Page is throwing a launch party for Josh’s new book, The Monet Murders, due out next week. Josh has been incredibly gracious and invited several other authors to guest host the party for an hour – including little ol’ me!

The party is at this address: 

Formal wear not required. I may still be in my pajamas. 😀

I’ll be hosting from 2:00-3:00 pm, Eastern Daylight Time, tomorrow afternoon. I’ll talk about Jamie and Pete, I’ll post a new excerpt from Promoted to Death, and I’m giving away two books!

I’m SO excited. I hope you can join me! If you’re a fan of Josh’s as well, head on over there now. They’re giving away all kinds of stuff!

Hoarded to Death:

When Jamie Brodie agrees to help his ex-sister-in-law Jennifer clean her hoarded apartment, the last thing he expects to find in the hoard is a dead body – and what the dead man was clutching in his hand might be the answer to a thousand-year-old mystery. As Jamie and the police investigate, they uncover a hoard of secrets – but the biggest secret of all belongs to Jamie’s boyfriend, Pete. Suddenly Jamie is searching for the answers to three questions: who killed the man in Jennifer’s apartment? Is the paper in his hand real? And can Jamie’s relationship with Pete survive?

Stacked to Death preorder!

I’m going to try this pre-order thing and see how it works. 😀 Stacked to Death will be published on October 15, but you can pre-order it here:


Library work-study student Austin Sharp upset a lot of people. When Jamie Brodie finds Austin dead, strangled to death in the library stacks, the police have plenty of suspects. When another library work-study student is found strangled, the focus of the investigation shifts – both students were from the same hometown. Then a third student is found dead. A serial killer is on the loose, and the police send in detectives from the elite Homicide Special unit.
And their favorite suspect is Jamie.

Researched to Death: Free for two days!

Speaking of old boyfriends…On Saturday, 6/28, and Sunday, 6/29, Researched to Death will be free at Amazon:

“Was it National Old Boyfriends Week, and I’d missed the memo?” 
Librarian Jamie Brodie is looking forward to a week of vacation in Oxford, England, his first trip back in seven years. Before he’s even packed, though, a couple of complications arise. 
The first complication is Jamie’s ex, Ethan Williams, who shows up at Jamie’s office with his new boyfriend and a request. Ethan’s going to Oxford too, and he needs Jamie’s help to find a rare 15th century book in the Bodleian Library. When Jamie tells his boyfriend Pete that he and Ethan will be in Oxford at the same time, Pete doesn’t react well. To say the least. 
The second complication is Pete’s ex, Luke Brenner, who shows up at Pete and Jamie’s house. He lets Jamie know that he’s in town to get Pete back – but Pete doesn’t think Luke will try anything. 
He’s proven spectacularly wrong, in one horrible moment. 
Jamie leaves for Oxford, not sure where he stands with Pete, not looking forward to seeing Ethan. When he requests the book that Ethan needs, he learns that it’s been missing for three weeks – and the man who likely stole it is dead. 
Then two more men die, and Ethan goes missing as well. Is he in danger? Or is he a killer? And what could be in an obscure medieval manuscript that’s worth killing for?
