Win a Book Wednesday, November 10, 2021

Today’s offering for “Win a Book Wednesday” is a chance to win a Kindle download of my just released The Valentine Veilleux Mysteries, a collection of three short stories and a novella featuring a traveling calendar photographer as the amateur detective. Val previously appeared in The Scottie Barked at Midnight (Liss MacCrimmon #9) and in Clause & Effect (Deadly Edits #2).

In order to win, leave a comment below. The winner will be notified by email and announced in this coming Saturday’s Weekend Update. Your e-book will be delivered as a Kindle “gift” from “S. Emerson.”

For those interested in the print edition, I don’t yet have author copies, but here’s a link to the best deal so far: It should be available elsewhere at the same price shortly, although those “supply chain delays” may come into play. Amazon currently has only the more expensive Book Depository listed in sellers but you can pre-order with Prime. Your local independent bookseller and your local library can also order copies. The e-book edition, at $5.99, is currently available in Kindle, iBook, Nook, Kobo, and other formats.

Reviews are much appreciated as they help how books are positioned online.
