I’m trying out the new giveaway feature with Amazon that now allows ebooks to be offered up as prizes, so here goes!
Pop over to Amazon and enter to win an ebook copy of TROUBLE MAGNET the first book in the Eliza Carlisle Mystery series.
Eliza Carlisle has the unwanted talent of attracting trouble, in all its forms. That couldn’t be truer than when she moves into the most bizarre apartment building on the planet. Weekly required dinners with the landlord and assigned chores are bad enough, but the rules don’t end there. Top most on the list of requirements is NO physical violence against the others residents.
There have been issues.
In the past.
The young manager, Sonya, claims that hasn’t been a problem recently, but Eliza comes home from her first day of culinary school to find a dead resident, her next door neighbor looking good for the crime, and a cop that seems more interested in harassing her than solving the case.
All Eliza wanted was to escape her past and start over, completely anonymous in a big city. That’s not going to be so easy when the killer thinks she’s made off with a valuable piece of evidence everyone is trying to get their hands on. The ultimatum that she turn it over to save her own life creates a small problem. Eliza has no idea what the killer wants, or where the mysterious object might be.
If she can’t uncover a decades old mystery in time, surviving culinary school will be the least of her problems.
This post was originally meant to announce a giveaway. A giveaway that went live two days ago on Amazon. Ten minutes after I saved this post, I got an email saying my giveaway had already ended because two many people had entered.
This is what the announcement looked like that I posted on my social media Tuesday night.

I guess I set my limit too low, but honestly, I wasn’t sure how this new feature on Amazon would go and I didn’t want to have it live for a week only to find out I had gotten ZERO entries. Self-doubt strikes again!!
It’s was nice to see the entries fill up so quickly. Next time I’ll have to up the limit and offer a few more books for you all. I have no idea who won the giveaway because Amazon keeps that confidential (rightly so!), but CONGRATS to the winner of the paperback copy of SHARK OUT OF WATER.
Book 3 THE ONLY SHARK IN THE SEA will be up for Pre-Release Sept19th and will go live Oct 6th!
Don’t forget, book 1 “Date Shark” is FREE on
You can get your own copy of “Shark Out Of Water” on:
Have you ever wished your were a princess? Or could just borrow their life for a day? Well…it’s not as easy as that. Charlotte and Leila from the DATE SHARK series are here to tell you why.
First, let’s meet Leila Sparrow, who just wanted to revamp her dating life, be treated like a princess, and stop being the perpetual last minute “plus one” because she was too nice to say no.
Even though Leila enjoys her work as a marketing manager for a popular clothing boutique, her boss’s absolute trust in her has turned into her being the only person allowed to handle a million different tasks each day. Leila and Ana are good friends, but at the end of the day, Leila feels a little like Cinderella trying to keep up with a houseful of demanding lunatics.
Even when Leila starts stepping out of her comfort zone and taking risks that she hopes will make her life better–like dating the adventuring loving Luke and befriending her dating coach Eli–things don’t go exactly as she hoped.
Luke may be incapable of sitting still for more than five minutes, but he’s fun and safe, in a strange way. Eli, on the other hand, is risky. Not only because he’s hiding something from Leila, but because figuring him out is harder than trying to get mice to make you a designer gown in real life. There’s a happily ever after waiting for Leila, but which path will get her there?
And let’s not forget Charlotte, who’s been through some really tough stuff, but this time she doesn’t know if she can survive without help.
Charlotte wasn’t raised by a wicked step-mother like Snow White was, but she’s experienced loss and hardship and abandonment, the kind that has the potential to truly make you crumble. She pulled through, and kept fighting, but things are quickly spinning out of control. The threat of death doesn’t come from a poison apple, but she’s facing losing her life all the same.
Snow White finds a band of dwarves to protect her and make friends with. Charlotte isn’t exactly looking for a hero, and to be perfectly honest, Guy Saint Laurent doesn’t really seem like the hero type, but a momentary wish to step out of her life, dress up like a princess, and just enjoy a night out with a friend leaves her with a choice. She terrified that Guy will leave when things really get rough, that accepting help will make her weaker, but if he stays…he could be everything Charlotte has ever wanted.
