It’s Win a Book Wednesday. To enter a drawing for a copy of Kathy Lynn Emerson’s I Kill People for a Living: A Collection of Essays by a Writer of Cozy Mysteries, simply leave a comment below.
Here’s the book description:
In this unique compilation of 115 essays written between 2011 and 2021, Kathy Lynn Emerson, author of over sixty traditionally-published books in a variety of genres and under several names, writes about everything from how to conquer the sagging middle of a work-in-progress to the adoption of her current cat-in-residence. Other topics highlight eccentricities—her own, a few from her family tree, and those to be found in the rural Western Maine mountains where she lives. Best known for her cozy mysteries, written as Kaitlyn Dunnett, and for historical mysteries written under her own name, Kathy Lynn Emerson has also been published in non-fiction, including the award-winning How to Write Killer Historical Mysteries.
The winner will be announced in the June 26-27 Weekend Update. Good luck!

“I Kill People for a Living” sounds like a fabulously intriguing book and one I would very much enjoy having the opportunity to read. Being made up of many essay, it would be the perfect read for those times when I only have a few minutes to relax.
Just the wonderful cover on “Deadly Trespass” would have me checking out this book. Then seeing that it’s a Maine mystery would hit it up a notch too. One of our dream trips was to go to Maine in the fall. We achieved that goal a few years back and can’t wait for the chance to go back. Would love the opportunity to read this book which is now on my TBR list.
Shared and hoping to be the fortunate one selected. Thank you for the chance!

Your books are all awesome, I’ve read most of them. And your adoption of Shadow was a wonderful act of kindness
Thanks, Nancy. Shadow says hi!
