Your Eight O'Clock Is Dead

Your Eight O'Clock Is Dead, Book One in my River City Mystery Series is available NOW!  Woo HOO!!!!  It went up last Friday on Amazon Kindle and on Barnes and Noble Nook.  It's also available in many formats on Smashwords



Eight O'Clock is a light-hearted, humorous mystery.  And I had an absolute blast writing this book and creating these quirky characters.  Here's a bit about the story.

Becca Reynolds is having a bad day. But her day takes a turn for the worse when she finds the fledgling psychiatric firm's 8 o'clock patient dead in the waiting room. Becca appoints herself the unofficial investigator since the police seem to be doing a really bad job of finding the murderer.

The case takes Becca from the sordid depths of the Russian mob, to the upscale West End of Richmond, Virginia (known locally as River City), and even to her own backyard. In the course of the story she finds herself in hot water, hot danger, and with dreams of hot men.

I described it to a friend today as:

A dead body

An innocent accused of murder

A mysterious Russian and a hunky ex-cop turned accountant - each with deep secrets and hidden agendas

And a lovable screw-up who is determined to save her job, bring the real killer to justice and increase her love life in the process. 

I've received quite a bit of positive feedback from early readers.  I hope you'll join with me in celebrating the release of my book.

Right now I'm hard at work on Book 2 - Your Time Is Up.  And I've got Book 3 - Your Lights Are Out - already plotted out.  Both books will be released in 2012. 

October was very, very good to me.  A son who got engaged and a book release.  Chocolate and mimosas all around.

Several people have mentioned that they've had trouble leaving a comment, so I'm testing it out. (bangs head against keyboard because it just hurts so good).
