Book Tour

Due to some serious automobile accident injuries in my family I have been absent from this blog for some time.  I apologize for the gap and hope to be back on my regular schedule in the future.

This entry is to let you know that the first Alicia Trent Mystery, Antique Magic, is being featured on a book tour December 6th through the 13th.  The following link will take you to a list of the sites featuring the book.  Many of the site owners have taken the time to review the book.  I want to thank all of them for finding Antique Magic worth featuring.  I also want to thank Debdatta Sahay for her time and energy in setting up the tour.  Authors write because it's what we love and know how to do, but without people like Debdatta and these blog owners we are only a voice in the dark.  Thank you for helping us be heard.

This is the latest review of my book, The Black Cane.  It is being featured on a book tour this week.  I hope my regular readers enjoy this one as much as they seemed to enjoy the Alicia Trent mysteries.  At the moment Alicia is busy getting into new trouble.  Hopefully you will see more about that soon.

When Amelia runs into a little boy in trouble and decides to help him, little does she know how her life is about to change – drastically. Deciding to shelter the little boy called Marc, their paths take them on an interesting journey full of mysteries and adventure. From eight old women playing bridge one a week, they become a more exclusive sort of club, a club that solves problems to help others. With slight help from Leon and Wade, these ladies not only solve Marc’s case but also take on other projects and complete them successfully.

The first thing about this book that catches you attention is its protagonists. Eight ladies past their prime years who hold a bridge club one a week turn into eight sleuths over a short period of time. That may sound a bit lame at first, but the author gives us a believable reason to realize that it just might be possible. Each lady having been a working professional from varied backgrounds, come together and pool their different experiences and expertise that help them to see situations from a unique perspective. The plot is multilayered. Along with Marc’s case as the base, there are other parallel storyline (or cases) that take place in the story. Though this adds enough flavor to the story, a reader might feel that Marc’s story was being dragged on to make space for these stories. 

Overall, this book makes for an interesting read. I am kind of looking forward to reading more adventures of the Dowager Club.

The Black Cane, Dowager Diaries, Book 1, did come out February first.  The cover art, as you saw in my last post, is very minimal.  I have gotten lots of comment on that, but most people seem to really like it.  It always takes a little time until the listing shows up on Amazon, but it should be there soon.  In the meantime it can be purchased at  This morning I discovered that The Black Cane will be featured on the special Valentine event, "Spread Some Indie Love Blog Hop."  Debdatta Sahay, the organizer of this event, will be featuring this new release on her own blog.  It is a great opportunity for everyone that loves to read to discover what others like you are enjoying.
