Meet my new pal at the Castle Bookshop!

By J.J. Tanner from the Dinner Club Mysteries
             by Linda Wiken

J.J. here. I feel like we’re old friends by now. It’s been over three years since I’ve been posting here on Killer Characters, and I’ve loved every minute of it.

But today I’d like to introduce you to my author’s newest character, Shelby Cox. She lives in Alexandria Bay, NY and is part owner of Bayside Books. During tourists season she works in the Castle location. That’s Blye Castle on small but enchanting Blye Island, part of the Thousand Islands.

Hi, Shelby and welcome. You’ll be taking over blogging duties from now on.

Thanks, J.J. And I want you to know I’m quite excited about that, along with the release of TROUBLE ON THE BOOKS, the first in the Castle Bookshop Mysteries. For today, I just wanted to alert cozy readers that it comes out in March. And that our author will be writing under the name, Essie Lang.



  Book #3, MARINATING IN MURDER is available at your favorite bookseller or online!

 Book #2 in the Dinner Club Mysteries 

The first book in the Dinner Club Mystery series is available at the bookstore of your choice, and on-line; also as an e-book.

Writing as Erika Chase:

Look for A KILLER READ,  (#2 on the Barnes and Noble Mystery Bestseller List and an Agatha Award nominee for Best First Mystery),  READ AND BURIED, COVER STORY, BOOK FAIR AND FOUL, and LAW AND AUTHOR on-line or at your favorite bookstore.
