BROKEN MIRROR AND A #GIVEAWAY


BY:  Colt Jamison
IN:   The Bad Luck Cat Mysteries
BY:   Kay Finch

If you're a reader of the Bad Luck Cat Mysteries, you might be saying Colt who?  Yes, you're right, I'm not a regular in Lavender, Texas, but I've come to town and you'll read plenty about me in the upcoming book - The Black Cat Breaks a Mirror - a new release coming out soon. 


There's a really odd coincidence, if you ask me, about this cat breaking a mirror, since I wrote my country music hit  "Broken Mirror" way before I ever met Hitchcock, the Bad Luck Cat. Not that I agree he's bad luck - he's actually a really cool and friendly cat that likes to come and hang out with me at the Athens Cottage I'm stayin' in. I don't even know if he broke a mirror or if he's falsely accused.




The whole purpose of me comin' to Lavender a few days ahead of the big concert I'm puttin' on was to give me some time to write what we all hope will be my next big hit. I say we - meaning especially my manager who's been on my case big time 'cause I've had a dry streak lately. 



I won't know til I get back to the studio how my new ideas will pan out...but I have some tunes workin' - one of them was inspired by my new pal, Hitchcock. In his honor, I'll be playin' with these new black cat guitar picks.

Thanks for comin' by to join us for the Cozy Mystery Spring Fling 2020 - and thanks to all the readers who write to say how much they love Hitchcock and these mysteries.


Today's giveaway prize is winner's choice of any one of the four Bad Luck Cat Mysteries shown below:


TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY:
The Black Cat Breaks A Mirror is set in August.  For your chance to win, let me know in the comments what you're looking forward to and hoping you'll be able to do this August that you have not been doing during our shelter-in-place months.  A random winner will be chosen on May 17th at noon.

  4. In August, we have a trip planned to explore some of the Amish communities in several states.

    We had a trip planned to visit Utah to see all the national parks there that we had to cancel because of the stay at home orders. WE had planned for over a year on that trip. When you have physical limitations plus you are traveling with your 15 year of furbaby, it takes a lot of extra planning. We had everything planned from what we wanted to see and do plus where to stay as well as little side trips along the way. Being seniors with medical issues, we just pray that maybe we can take that trip next year. We are trying to go and do as long as we can. Then we can be content to stay at home and enjoy the view from our front porch.

    We are praying that this other trip actually gets to come about. Time will tell whether we go or have to cancel it as well. Got notice that one community we were going to in Illinois has already cancelled all events for the rest of the year. :(

    Thank you for the wonder opportunity to win on of your fabulous books! Shared and hoping to be the very lucky one selected.

    Congratulations of the upcoming release of "The Black Cat Breaks a Mirror". Can't wait to read this one on my TBR list.

    1. I understand Kay. In 2018, we were on a National Parks bus tour (13 parks in 13 days). Morning of 3rd day, my husband falls and breaks his shoulder and we had to fly home. Last year, he had cardiac issues, we had to cancel our vacation again. This year, we're booked on the National parks tour again, so hopefully we can go on it, assuming it is not cancelled by travel agency. My Husband's Honor Flight for this year has already been cancelled and it was scheduled for Oct 10!

  11. Love the cat guitar picks! Wish I had some!
    I'm hoping our town still gets to have their summer festival. Since my state never had stay home orders to start with I'm hoping it'll be able to go on as usual. It brings in a lot of money and the profits go back into the community. It's gone to various businesses, road work, new play equipment at the park, nursing home, library, etc.

  43. I would like to visit my kids and grandkids. Especially the families that we have not seen since last year. It doesn't look good for making our annual trip to visit some of them this year. And one granddaughter has been very sick after her cancer treatments and has been in PICU since right after Easter. I have not read any of this series yet but I love the titles. Thanks for the chance!
