Winners and a Cozier Contest

Congratulations to the winners of the last couple contests.  The Tami Hoag books will go to Caryn St. C. from St. Louis, MO.  Mirror Image by Dennis Palumbo will be sent to Claudia W. of Klamath Falls, OR.  And, Lois H. from Beverly Hills won Jilliane Hoffman's Pretty Little Things.  I'll be mailing those last two books tomorrow, while the publicist will send out Tami Hoag's books.

This isn't the week to offer violent mysteries.  Instead, I have two cozier mysteries as prizes.  How about a mystery featuring "7 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 ghosts."  E.J. Copperman's Night of the Living Deed is the first in a new series.  When newly divorced Alison Kerby bought a fixer-upper to turn into a guesthouse, she didn't count on dealing with two resident ghosts who claim their deaths were not suicide.  If she doesn't want to become a ghost herself, Alison better find the killer.

Or, how about an autographed ARC of Scoop to Kill by Wendy Lyn Watson?  Tally Jones, proprietor of an old-fashioned ice-cream parlor is shocked when the local colelge serves up "A double dip of death," bodies of a graduate student, and then a professor.  The list of suspects is as long as the ice cream shop's menu, but Tally wants to find the killer before her niece becomes the next choice of the day.

So, which mystery would you like to win, Night of the Living Deed or Scoop to Kill?  You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Email me at Your subject lines should read either, "Win Living Deed," or "Win Scoop to Kill." Include your name and mailing address. Entrants from the U.S. only please.

The contest will end Thursday night, Jan. 20 at 6 PM MT. I'll use a random number generator to pick the winners, and the books will go out in the mail on Friday. Good luck!

I'm not going to enter the contest because I have these two books -( I even have an autographed copy of Scoop to Kill. A dear friend attended a book signing for me.) and I wanted to give someone else a chance at these great books. I just wanted to say I really enjoy your blog and that this is a great prize.
