Release Day – Dash Away All

DashAwayAll coverToday is the release day for Dash Away All, the third book in the Merry & Bright Handcrafted Mystery Series. I was excited to combine Christmas in July and Christmas movies in this story.

Here’s a little bit about Dash Away All

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…Merry Winters is excited for her dream-come-true moment: being an on-site crafter for a Christmas movie. The tidings of joy are short-lived as she finds herself becoming a referee, dealing with a raging Ebenezer, participating in a bucket brigade, and finding evidence in a “murder.”

Is someone trying to stop the production or is it tied to a secret someone has on Luna Carmichael, the star of the movie and the queen of Christmas?

When Marie, Luna’s assistant, stumbles away from a car accident and dies, Merry believes the accident wasn’t quite so accidental. Was Luna or Marie the target? Merry finds more questions than answers, but one thing is certain: Everyone has an ulterior motive for being part of the production—including Marie.

After another murder, Merry wonders if the deaths are tied to a baby born long ago and abandoned. And more importantly, will Merry live long enough to find out?

Christmas in July Kickoff

Lights. Camera. Murder_ (1)July is one of my favorite months not only because two of my children have birthdays this month but also because of Christmas in July. My other child is born in December which is actually Christmas month. This month, I’m going to be doing a little celebrating of Christmas in July with a FB event (also to celebrate the release of Dash Away All), Christmas/holiday related topics on my Facebook author page and on my blog. There will also be some giveaways.
One of my mystery series, Merry & Bright Handcrafted Mystery, features a heroine who loves Christmas and crafting as much as I do and has made Christmas crafting her career. Merry’s newest adventure, Dash Away All, releases July 7th, where she’s venturing to Indiana as the resident crafter for a Christmas mystery movie.
Tomorrow (July7th), I and my co-host Sybil Johnson will be holding a Christmas in July event on Facebook where will be celebrating the release of Dash Away All and Christmas. Join us to talk about books, Christmas, crafting, and there will also be some giveaways. So please join us tomorrow from 4-6 pm EST.
