On Monday September 14th, 2015 my first book, High Strung, A Glass Bead Mystery was re-released by Booktrope. Here’s the link to Amazon, go check it out. I’ll wait.
Here’s a little blurb about the book:
After inheriting a house in Seattle, Jax O’Connell is living the life of her dreams as a glass beadmaker and jewelry designer. When she gets an offer to display her work during a bead shop’s opening festivities, it’s an opportunity Jax can’t resist—even though Rosie Perez, the store’s owner, is the surliest person Jax has ever met.
The weekend’s events become a tangled mess when a young beadmaker is found dead nearby and several oddball bead enthusiasts are suspects. Jax must string together the clues to clear her friend Tessa’s name—and do it before the killer strikes again.
I self-published High Strung in 2014. At the time, I was deliriously happy with my accomplishment and the reception the book had received. I hoped that I’d eventually find a publisher, but figured that would take years.
Last spring the stars aligned just right and I found a publisher that wanted me. I recounted that story a few months back on this blog. There’s an even better version of the story on the Book Country Blog, where I was honored to be featured on my book’s launch day.
Do I get to rest on my laurels? (What a funny phrase—a laurel branch poking me in the bum—no thank you. But I digress.) There’ll be no rest for the weary as my Booktrope team and I shift into high gear to release the next book in the Glass Bead Mystery series before the end of the year.
Ohhh…you want to hear about that? Sorry, you’ll have to wait until next time.
