It’s LAUNCH DAY! Malice, Matrimony, and Murder Anthology is Here!

Are you a savvy sleuth?

Do you enjoy collecting clues, identifying villains, and solving crimes? Are you drawn to shorter mysteries that are light on gore and language, and high on humor, entertainment, and happy endings? Then don’t miss out on Malice, Matrimony, and Murder, a limited-edition cozy mystery and cozy crime fiction anthology!

My short story, The Bride Wore Death is included along with so many others.

Twenty-six cozy mystery and cozy crime fiction authors have teamed up to create Malice, Matrimony, and Murder, a collection of brand-new, wedding-themed short stories that will keep you wondering whodunit and what’s next from the first page to the last. Between bad bridesmaids, conniving caterers, greedy guests, ill-mannered in-laws, savvy sleuths, and vengeful villains, this anthology has it all!

Our authors include Derringer and Daphne Award finalists, Agatha and Anthony Award nominees, Gold Seal of Excellence recipients, and members of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, Crime Writers’ Association, Crime Writers of Color, and the Short Mystery Fiction Society. There’s no shortage of talent here!

Malice, Matrimony, and Murder Anthology Launch Day is here!

New Crime Fiction Anthology – Malice, Matrimony, and Murder

I’m thrilled to announce that I have a new short story coming out this year. It will be included with the Malice, Matrimony, and Murder anthology along with a bunch of other brand-new cozy mystery and cozy crime fiction stories written by my author friends.

The anthology will be starting off as a Kickstarter campaign, and I’d love to invite you to back it. Why would you want to? First, you will have early access to the anthology, which won’t publish until late this year. But Kickstarter backers will receive the ebook version at least two months prior to its public release. These are all brand-new stories, so you won’t be able to find them this early anywhere else.

Second, the Kickstarter gives you access to a bunch of extras, like a chance to have your name included in the book’s Acknowledgments section, and an exclusive guide to help you solve the overarching Wedding Whodunit woven throughout the anthology. You could also choose to have one of the Wedding Whodunit characters named after you or a loved one! These rewards won’t be available to anyone besides our Kickstarter backers.

Third, you’ll get to be a part of our publishing process. The Kickstarter not only comes with rewards for you, but for me and my fellow authors as well. A successful campaign will make it possible for us to publish a paperback version of the anthology and to pursue some advertising opportunities to help connect us with new readers.

So how do you support the campaign? It’s easy! Visit our Kickstarter page and click “Notify me on launch” so you’ll be informed when our campaign goes live in May. You may need to set up a free Kickstarter account if you don’t have one already, and clicking that “Notify” button in no way obligates you to anything. All it means is you’ll receive an email when our campaign launches. Since this opportunity will only be available for a limited time and once the Kickstarter is over so is access to all of the campaign extras, this will just help to make sure you don’t miss out. You can decide whether you’re truly interested in backing the campaign once it’s live and you can see all of the details for yourself.

Thank you for your interest and support! I’m excited for you to be a part of this journey with me.
