A Taste of the Goldwash Mystery Series Available Now

A Sizzling, Suspenseful SHORT STORY wrapped in a puzzling mystery that will leave you hungry for more!

**It’s “Groundhog Day” meets the modern day Old West!**

In the lonely mining ghost town of Goldwash, Nevada, Christmas has come early. Unfortunately, the local bar owner must be on this year’s naughty list, because Santa brought her something even worse than a piece of coal on this dark, cold winter night—her old man.

“It’s ALIVE!!!” Yay! My short story that gives a taste of the Goldwash Mystery series I am planning to write after I finish Jackrabbit #3 and Deadwood #5. This new series will be a mix of suspense, mystery, humor, romance, and western. It will be more gritty and spicy than my other two. NOTE PLEASE–Next week, this short story will be part of a free promotion on Wednesday and Thursday (March 6 & 7th). If you want to wait, you can get it for free next week. After the free promo, it will be just 99 cents, like it is now.

ALSO–if you bought Save Me, Santa last November, December, or January, this is the same story that I had in that anthology. However, I have added some illustrations to it drawn by Chuck Kunkle (there is a cool sign for the Ugly Rooster bar–love it!).

Here is the Amazon link, enjoy!

    Please tell me that you are going to be releasing a new Deadwood or Jackrabbit book soon!! Both are a “laugh out loud” read, and I cant want for more!

      Hi Carol,
      I’m working on the last half of the third Jackrabbit Junction book. It should be out in January. After it’s done, I’ll dig into Deadwood #5 right away. I’m glad you got some laughs out of them. Thank you very much for writing to me.

    Ann: Loved ‘The Old Man is Back in Town’! What a great way to introduce a new story and make a little money. :) When I read your books I understand what it means for a writer to ‘have a voice’. I love the romance (TOMiBiT was hot!), and the western language which is fresh to me. I wish I could congratulate you on original phrases, but I wouldn’t know which ones are; I bet most are from your zany mind, though. If I ever get to meet you at a SinC meeting or book talk I’ll be in the back row so I don’t make a squealing fan spectacle of myself.

      Hi Linda,
      I’m glad you enjoyed TOMiBiT. :)
      I wasn’t intending to start another series when I wrote that, just wanted to come up with a short story set around Christmas time that was a little different. In the end, I liked the characters and setting so much I knew I would have to come back and write their stories, too. I hope to run into you at a SinC event someday soon. Thank you for all of your kind words.

      Take care,
