Cover Reveal: Temple of Indra's JEWEL

Image
Check out the brand new cover design for the Time Traveling Bibliophile Series! I'm hoping it has more of time travel/sci-fi feel to it now. What do you think?

While vacationing in the South of France, ​a librarian is pushed from a cliff and ​into​ ​the body of ​​a 19th-century princess ​destined to be murdered. Can this ​resourceful ​librarian ​​hunt down someone who isn't killing by the book​ ​or will she ​be ​checked out for good?


Sophia Marcil loves her grandmother's twisted tales almost as much as the sapphire ring passed down to her. Wearing it, however, could be her downfall. After slipping the jewel onto her finger she is pushed from a cliff--landing splat in the middle of 19th Century Monaco, where a killer plot to seize the throne could consume her entire future--past and present. Sophia believes she's being forced into an eccentric millionaire's dinner theatre but a hidden diary, a secret passage and a whispered conversation reveal to her that the role of…

GET YOUR HOUSE HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR

Image
Welcome ghouls and boys! The witching hour is upon us! Cue the Cult Classic Horror Films, the Monster Mash, and the need for Haunted Houses decorations! If you’re hosting a Halloween party or a Deadly Haunted Ball like Juniper and Pike in Cookies, Corpses & the Deadly Haunt, you’ll need to get your house ready. Here are some of the tips on how I get my spooky old Victorian ready! Before you do anything, turn on the music, and get in the Halloween Spirit! I like Saint-Saëns "Danse Macabre." This dance of the dead features the Devil playing the violin, and a xylophone imitating the sounds of rattling bones. You might recognize it from certain Halloween films.








Fake skulls, cobwebs, candy dishes & creepy pictures
Skulls are an inexpensive and yet classy way to add a little spooky-ness to your house! I also keep these in my library to a little ambiance to my writing room. I bought my skulls (the eyes light up) at the dollar store. You know what else is cheap at the dollar …

Review & #Giveaway – A Cajun Christmas Killing by Ellen Byron @ellenbyronla #5jinglebells #cozy

Rachael's Review:

Another dead body. Just another day in the Bayou for budding sleuth Magnolia Crozat. In the 3rd Cajun Country mystery, Ellen Byron once again cooks up a laugh out loud page turner that's as yummy as Ninette Crozat's Holiday Brandy Pain Perdu. Maggie Crozat is home for the holidays playing mistress of the Doucet Plantation to the tune of her new manager’s fiddle and helping out at her own family's B&B. Not a moment too soon, given that her family is sick with stress—the trouble is that the Crozat Plantation B & B is being targeted. It isn't long before Maggie and hunky boyfriend Bo Durand dig in, seeking out a mysterious Internet troll who is writing damaging reviews about all of her uncle's properties. What they find at the heart of the matter is a ruthless financier intent on acquiring the Crozat estate. Sadly, (but not really) that financier ends up dead, which lands Maggie and Bo on the suspect list. From irrational reviews to burst…

A smart and hilarious novel that delivers constant chuckles and an onslaught of outlandish situations piling up around neighbors Bronagh and Poonam in the sleepy town of Pictontown on the Downs.
