ANGELS OF MERCY - is here!

Okey-dokey, here it is! My first self-published novel, ANGELS OF MERCY, book #4 in my Mercy Allcutt mystery series, is available now. Right this minute! Two murders take place in this book, but there's no blood or gore. In fact, the book's so cozy (sorry to people who dislike that description, but I don't know how else to describe it) that both heinous crimes happen off-stage completely.

I'm holding a special contest for ANGELS OF MERCY this month. From now until July 31, you may enter my contest. I'll be giving away three copies of ANGELS OF MERCY. Just send me your name and home address at . Please put ANGELS OF MERCY in the subject line, or you're liable to be entered into my regular contest. Not that my regular contest is a bad thing, but if you win it, you won't be winning ANGELS OF MERCY. Did that make sense? Well, never mind.

This is a total experiment for me. I mean, I'm not Joe Konrath or Stephen King or Nora Roberts or anyone else who has an audience of billions. I have a very small following of loyal, faithful readers whom I love. It would be really keen (that 1920's talk for cool) if I could cadge a few more. In case you feel like helping me fund my upcoming three surgeries (more about them in my August blog), just follow the links below.


Former Boston Brahmin Mercy Allcutt is excited to be renting out suites of rooms to deserving working women in her new home on Bunker Hill in Los Angeles. She considers she’s performing an act of good-heartedness, no matter how skeptical her boss, private investigator Ernie Templeton, is about her endeavor.

When her housekeeper’s son is arrested for the murder of a Hollywood big-wig, Mercy presses Ernie to solve the case. She’s positive Calvin Buck is innocent. Ernie tells her he’ll do his best. She’s not entirely convinced he means it, so she does some snooping on her own.

In the meantime, Mercy not only takes driving lessons from Ernie, but she discovers there’s more to being a landlady than meets the eye. Is one of her “Angels of Mercy” not what she appears to be? Only time, and perhaps Mercy and Ernie, will tell…

I forgot to add the link to Barnes and Noble (bad me!) for the trade paperback. It is:
