Happy Walk A Crooked Line Pub Day!!!
Yes, it’s finally here! Walk A Crooked Line is out! The second Jo Larsen Mystery follows Jo and her partner Hank Phelps as they investigate the suicide of a teenager in Plainfield, Texas. Why would Kelly Amster—a young woman with her whole life ahead of her— take a leap off the old water tower? Jo can’t let it go, not without digging into what—or who—drove her to it. For some early reviews, you can check out GoodReads.
I’m also super excited to share the book trailer for Walk A Crooked Line, which was created by Kincaid Walker, a wonderful actress who’s appeared in TV shows, like Speechless on ABC and Castle (one of my faves!), as well as in the movie Unforgettable. Kincaid did the voice-over for the trailer as well. She and I met through my aunt, who was one of her former teachers. I’m so thankful to know her and to have had her use her talents on the video for Walk A Crooked Line. Take a minute to watch it. It’s only 45 seconds, but it’ll give you chills.
Now for the fun task of announcing the winners of the five-book Walk A Crooked Line Giveaway, which turned into a SEVEN-book giveaway because there were so many entries from you awesome and amazing people who’ve supported me for years and years. I wish I could send books to everyone! Here are the names and congratulations to all: Lynn P. of Michigan, Joe S. of Missouri, Pat S., Heather of Texas, Donna E. of Ohio, Robin W. of North Carolina, and Julia H. of Minnesota.
Thanks to ALL who entered and sent sweet notes. I would have loved to respond to each, but there is not enough time in the day (or night!). If you didn’t win, hang in there! I’ll be doing flash giveaways of Crooked Line audio-books on my Facebook pages this week. So, more freebies to come!
Speaking of freebies, if anyone would like bookmarks for their blog or web site giveaways, conferences, whatever, I have some lovely ones! Just email me at email@example.com and tell me how many you’ll need for your event.
I’ll be giving away bookmarks in-person at upcoming events in St. Louis, like the Authors Breakfast at the Carondelet Library branch on September 29 at 9:30 AM and the Authors Speak Out event at the Schlafly Library branch on October 13 (new date!). I’ll post more info on my web site as soon as it’s available.
