Win Books on The Surest Poison tour

I’ve been absent the past few days working on the dreaded Form 1040. I’m back now, and just in time for the launch of The Surest Poison. The official release date is this Friday, but it’s already available here. I’m doing a Blog Book Tour from April 15 to May 1, skipping Sundays. Like God, I rest on the Sabbath. Well, maybe an afternoon nap.

I’m giving away books in two drawings during the tour. If you make a comment on one (or all) of these blogs, you’ll get one chance for each comment you leave. The drawings will be held at the mid-point, April 23, and the last day, May 1. In the first drawing, two winners will get copies of The Surest Poison. The final dip into the hat will bring up another two winners, one for a copy of the new book and the grand prize of all five of my mysteries, which includes four Greg McKenzie books.

To pique your interest, here is the tour schedule with date, blog link, and subject:


Wednesday, April 15 – Book Roast – book excerpt
Thursday, April 16 – Joanna Campbell Slan – Coming Out with The Surest Poison
Friday, April 17 – The Stilleto Gang – The Surest Poison's Jaz LeMieux Talks
Saturday, April 18 – Bob Sanchez – Make the Setting Come Alive
Monday, April 20 – Murderati – Cultivate Your Writing Style
Tuesday, April 21 – Silver Rush Mysteries – Writing the Private Eye Novel
Wednesday, April 22 – Marilyn Meredith's Musings – A Look at Dialogue
Thursday, April 23 – Straight from Hel – Electronic Rights to Books
Friday, April 24 – There's a Dead Guy in the Living Room – Is It a Murder Mystery?

Wednesday, April 29 – Acme Authors – Miss Demeanor and Five Felons Poker Club
Thursday, April 30 – Write First, Clean Later – How Many POVs Do You Need?
Friday, May 1 – Mysterious Musings – An Interview with Sid Chance

Get ready to follow along and learn all about the book and its characters and my views on writing. But don’t wait to buy the book hoping you’ll win one. If you’re a winner and already have the book, let me know and I’ll substitute another (or you can give, your winner as a gift to a friend).

Thanks, Jo Ann. It's a lot of work getting all the posts written, and I'm not finished yet. Won't be long, though.
