Now you can find out “Who killed the clown”!

Dear reader,

Who Killed the Clow 320You can now find out who did it. “Who killed the clown?” is live in the e-stores already. Where can you go to find it?

It is on Smashwords, The Amazon family of course, Barnes and Nobles already know (both of them), it is on kobobooks, and our friends at the Apple iTunes store can help you further too.

If you prefer a paper copy you can find that at lulu.com.

In case you are not certain any more what this book is about, here is the back cover text:

Lester Jones isn’t your usual detective. He’s a Pagan and sometimes resorts to less common ways to solve his assignments. Lester also isn’t a famous, well-known detective, which is reflected by his lack of clientèle and his financial state. Until one day a client asks him to locate a missing person.
This is the beginning of a hunt for a lady and for the answer to the question “Who killed the clown?” The road to this answer leads Lester past many people and places, along which he also had to admit his love for someone special.

“Night watch” by Linda Hall

Dear reader,

It gives me great pleasure to introduce a book to you, written by Linda Hall who’s also a member of the Alexandria Publishing Group. It’s a mystery. No, it’s not a mystery that I introduce a book, it’s the genre of the book. I’ve read it. It’s really a good book, but don’t take my word for it. Let me show you what Linda has to say about it:

I am pleased to announce that NIGHT WATCH, the first in my new mystery series (#emridgemysteries) is finally available. This book has been a part of my life and planning for a long, long time. Before I wrote six books for Harlequin, I wanted to write a series of mysteries which featured a female boat captain. She was in my thoughts during the first Bouchercon mystery conference I ever attended. I had the idea for Em Ridge (and her name and her backstory have gone through various permutations through the years.) The character was there in my mind, begging to come out, asking me over and over to tell her story, get it down, and out there for the readers.
But other things got in the way and it’s only now – now that I’m an author/publisher, that I am getting her story out.
Em Ridge is a boat captain. She’s not a huge container ship captain taking goods all over the world, nor does she helm ferries or tugboats (although she could – and maybe in a future book she will.). She’s not in the military or Coast Guard. She’s not a police force boat captain. What she does is deliver boats. She’s someone who gets hired by people to take their boats (usually luxury yachts) from Point A to Point B.
Normally, a fun job. You get to spend time on other people’s fancy boats! But in Em’s life, mystery always ensues.
In Night Watch, having the billionaire’s daughter go overboard on her first captain­ing job is not a good beginning. The sailboat is new, state of the art, her crew on this trip include two close sail­ing friends. But an unknown fourth, who can’t even tie a bow­line, and the unruly owner’s daughter turn the idyllic trip into an adventure not wanted.
Two years ago Em buried her husband, her soul­mate, her sail­ing buddy, and with him she buried a secret. As hours on the open seas slide by, secrets are res­ur­rected tying Em’s past to a present, awash with mur­der and deception.

Y. Yes. #AtoZChallenge

azbloggingY. Yes

Dear reader,

Yes! That is all I can say to this strange road that lies behind me. Behind me? Yes! Behind me. Almost four years of actual book-publishing lie behind me, and yes, it was an incredible journey. Even more yes, because I’m ready for more of this.

There will be more adventures of Hilda the Wicked Witch and if possible there will also be a sequel to the first Lily Marin novel. More science fiction and fantasy. I can only say yes to all that, and all this came to pass because of a writing contest I did with a few friends, someone who kept nagging me to publish that first little Hilda book, and because of all of you, dear readers. My heartfelt thanks for each and every one of you who have bought and downloaded my books, and who have sent me such encouraging words, such lovely and touching e-mails and so on. Also a big thank you to everyone at the Alexandria Publishing Group for their support, camaraderie and advice.

It’s taken many years before I reached the point where I could truly understand and embrace my love for writing. I’ve always loved books and reading, but writing added an amazing dimension to the world of words and I’ll be eternally grateful for getting there. Maybe there’s something of a lesson for each of us in this, dear reader. No matter how long something takes, if it’s meant to be, if there is love for something in your heart, it will find a way.

So what is more appropriate than to end this post with Yes, and their hit single Love will find a way:

APG Indie promotion.

Dear reader,

You may have missed last week’s Indie Promotion. That was not a mistake. I’m cutting the amount of those in two for now, so you’ll find a new Indie Promo every 2 weeks instead of each Monday.

August Gamble

by Alexandria Publishing Group author Linda Hall

Ebook Short Description: August Gamble – Book One of the Mountie Series
He was well known to the Chester detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as well as to many residents. Tom Anderchuk was the town’s bad kid, drop out, drug taker, and then drug dealer. No sympathy lost here over his death.

Corporal Roger Sheppard wondered then why this particular murder upset him so? He was always the cool one, the non-emotional policeman. Was it the August heat? No, It was more than that. This whole drug problem was right in his own backyard. Now, a young dealer had been killed. Then there was Madeline, Tom’s girlfriend. Roger couldn’t get her eyes out of his mind – haunted, scared and empty. If Madeline did know something she wasn’t talking. Or was afraid to.

Embers of a Broken Throne

by Alexandria Publishing Group author Teryy C. Simpson

Ebook Short Description: In the aftermath of a titanic battle, Ancel and the remnants of his people are  fleeing to Benez, a city reviled by the world. Hunted by Tribunal assassins and  shadelings, he must fight to see them survive even as corruption creeps across  the land, and his father battles for sanity.
Ryne continues to hold fast to his secrets, but suspicious of those around him, he makes a shocking  discovery of his own, one he dare not reveal.
Still struggling with the loss of her parents, her feelings for Ancel, and her hate for Ryne, Irmina comes  into her power as a Beasttamer, and is exposed to knowledge that could kill them all if the enemy sees through her act.
Meanwhile, the Nine continue to pull strings, and the armies of the Tribunal and Amuni’s Children march, their ultimate goal to see an end to Ancel and the Eztezians, and to breach the  prisons of the gods. But true to form in Denestia, many things are not  what they seem.
