My Holiday Gift is this Recommendation

I don't have anything new coming out right now, but if you're looking for a gift for the cozy mystery lover on your list (or even for yourself - why not?) then have I got the new release for you.

From USA Today & Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author Sandi Scott:

Nothing can slow down Ashley & Patty, who are only a day away from their dream. 
What about a dead body?
Charlotte Murder
Ashley Adams and her best friend Patty LaFontaine are a day away from realizing their dream of owning a food truck and nothing can dampen their enthusiasm—not even finding a body. 
After finding the perfect truck to expand their catering business, Ashley and Patty are dismayed to find the dead body of the owner of the sales lot when they arrive bright and early to take possession of their purchase. 
When the Sheriff’s department confirms that the death is suspicious, Ashley starts poking around to satisfy her curiosity.  In the meantime, her boyfriend Ryan is behaving very strangely, and Ashley is worried that he is getting tired of being with her already. 
Ashley and Patty plan menus, paint their new truck and work together to find a killer in this delightful Seagrass Sweets cozy mystery series.

You can find all of the info on this great new release as well as review Sandi's back catalog at her website, And here's the link to the book's Amazon page.

My Next Big Project

I recently organized and designed a promo selling ebook collections for 99¢/99p over the long Black Friday weekend. The promo wasn't a big success, but short story collections are a hard sell. Still it gave me an idea.

My new project is to run monthly promos featuring any kind of eBook format: novel, novella, collection, anthology, even box-set; but to limit each promo to two complimentary genres. For example; the first two promos I have planned feature romance and crime stories for the first mash-up, and fantasy and horror novels for the second.

The idea is to feature a spectrum of novels under the two genres in a given promo, so while (in the first promo by example) the novels can be both horror and romance (ie the movie Ghost or The Bride of Frankenstein - you get the picture) they can also be strictly romance or strictly horror. The top of the landing page will feature one genre, the bottom will feature the next, and cross-over books will take up the middle of the page.

Since the foundation of this site is cross-promos and cross-genres, I call the site Double-Cross Lit. If you'd like to see the site, you can find it here. It's still a work in process, but eventually I will be purchasing the URL. designed a very nice banner for the site and newsletters.
