Like everyone else in Virginia, Grandpa Dave and I (and Jazzy!) are staying home except when it's absolutely necessary to go out. We have been wearing our masks and going for walks together in the park when the weather cooperates. But our lifesaver has been social media!
As you know if you've read about our adventures at Shops on Main in Abingdon, Max--our ghostly fashionista--is tethered to that building. Fortunately, Grandpa Dave and I showed Max how to participate in live chats prior to all the social distancing stuff being put into place. The three of us have had several conversations, and we've had our one-on-one tete a tetes as well. Who knew we'd become so accustomed to talking with a ghost that we'd have to speak with her remotely?
We've also started our own little book club, since Max enjoys reading so much. If you haven't checked out any of our stories and aren't really sure they're you're cup of tea, you can read an extended preview of the book using this link: https://dl.bookfunnel.com/2alqwvanak. And Gayle Leeson is giving away one copy of Designs on Murder, book one in the Ghostly Fashionista series (US winner will receive a signed, paperback copy; international winner will receive an ebook copy). To enter the giveaway, please comment below (with your email address) telling us how you're keeping in touch with your loved ones who aren't sheltering in place with you.
Also, to celebrate the release of A Murderous Misconception, I'm partnering with Lorraine Bartlett for a release party on Facebook tomorrow. Please make plans to join us!
Stay safe, and good luck with the giveaway!
What if you discovered your lively new friend wasn't really...alive?
When Amanda decides to lease a space in historic Abingdon, Virginia's Shops On Main, she's surprised to learn that she has a resident ghost. But soon Maxine "Max", a young woman who died in 1930, isn't the only dead person at the retail complex. Mark, a web designer who rented space at Shops On Main, is shot in his office.
Amanda is afraid that one of her new "friends" is a killer, and Max is encouraging her to solve Mark's murder a la Nancy Drew. Easy for Max to want to investigate--she can't end up the killer's next victim!
