Cover revive, Finishing up a series, #FREE audio book

The last two months have been chaotic to say the least! I've been gone or on the road for most of January and February. I'm trying to get out my Shandra Higheagle series in audio, The Halsey Brother Series had covers revived, and I'm trying to write the last book of the Letters of Fate series.

I'm excited that you can now purchase Double Duplicity the first book of the Shandra Higheagle mystery series in Audio.  Ann Thompson is the narrator. She has a been a dream to work for. Even if I have one little thing in a chapter that I want tweaked she is willing to do it. She is a Cincinnati radio news anchor. Here are the links where you can find Double Duplicity in audio and if you leave a comment I'll pick a winner on Sunday who will win a code to download the audio book for free! 

Book one of the Shandra Higheagle Native American Mystery Series
On the eve of the biggest art event at Huckleberry Mountain Resort, potter Shandra Higheagle finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. She’s ruled out as a suspect, but now it’s up to her to prove the friend she witnessed fleeing the scene was just as innocent. With help from her recently deceased Nez Perce grandmother, Shandra becomes more confused than ever but just as determined to discover the truth. While Shandra is hesitant to trust her dreams, Detective Ryan Greer believes in them and believes in her.
Can the pair uncover enough clues for Ryan to make an arrest before one of them becomes the next victim?

I'm currently working on the next and last Letters of Fate book. The reason it is the last, comes from a survey I conducted with my western readers. They say they would rather have a series that is connected by the community or family than a premise. So, Henri, will be my last Letters of Fate book, and ironically, it  has been my toughest LOF book to date. I started with a real couple that I took their combustible love for one another and infused that in my characters. This was fine, but the book I started was too sweet for their love. Then I intentionally picked what I thought was an obscure mission in Idaho, only after a third of the way into the book, discovered a load of information about the mission and had to rewrite the firs third of the book. This put me behind. So please bear with me as I get this book finished. 

What is the new series going to be about? Ladies of the Silver Dollar Saloon. I am stoked to write this series. No, they aren't prostitutes though one or two who straggle into the saloon for employment may have that in their background. As it sounds the stories will be written about the men each girl finds, loves, and marries. So the community and secondary characters from the landlady at the boarding house, the gossipy bitties on the street, the store owner, dressmaker, and others will be the same in all the books. Many of the girls will be around in the book before they find their true love. Even the handsome man who owns the saloon will find his one true love. It should be fun and I hope you all will find it so. 

And in the last few months I've had the covers to the Halsey Brothers series revived. After making Marshal in Petticoats an audio book, it had to have a new cover to conform to the cover policies. That made it look different than the other four. Now those books are all updated to the new look.  

DON'T FORGET if you leave a comment you'll be in the running for a free download of the audio book, Double Duplicity!
