“A local independent bookstore asked last fall if they could carry all three of my books…. You’d think they would sell more of the first book in the series, Fire at Will’s…. But instead, they are selling way more of the middle book, Iced Tee. I had to take more books in this morning because they had sold out again. I asked [the store] why they thought they were selling so many more of Iced Tee. [Their answer:] It’s the shiny gold Chanticleer sticker, of course!

So naturally, I have now entered the most recent book, Missing Mom, in the Mystery & Mayhem contest for 2018.”
