Ice Cream party at the Ninja Librarian's blog!


Death By Ice Cream has gone live!


Dig out the ice cream scoops and chocolate sauce--the long-awaited (by me, anyway) launch of my first cozy mystery has finally happened!

Let's just admire it for a minute.




What do you serve when all you have in the freezer is an ice-cold corpse?
JJ MacGregor and her best friend Kitty Padgett struggle to hold the Pismawallops PTA together, and new volunteer Letitia LeMoine isn’t making it any easier.  But when Letitia’s strangled corpse turns up where the ice cream bars should have been, things get a whole lot worse.  JJ has to shoehorn in a search for the killer along with all her other problems: divorce, a 15-year-old son with his first girlfriend, a desperate race to complete the Yearbook on time, and her own tendency to get all wobbly-kneed around the Chief of Police.  JJ just can’t help asking a few questions.  But a loud mouth and insatiable curiosity can be a dangerous combination.  Especially when someone wants her stopped.

And now. . .

Astonishingly, a blog tour celebrating this fine, fun and funny mystery launched this weekend, complete with giveaway for an ebook (well, five, actually, so you have a pretty good chance of winning).  Here's the blog tour scoop.  I can't tell you exactly when everyone will post, because it's a surprise (okay, I write better than I organize).  But all of these are worth following!  Here's the list of blogs participating in the Tour, with interviews, reviews, and guest posts by yours truly:
Amazon has the Kindle book and the paperback.  Or you can drop me an email and a paypal payment for just $16, and I'll ship you a signed copy anywhere in the US.  Or trot on over to Smashwords for an ebook in any format you can imagine!

At last, here's what you've been waiting for, the Rafflecopter gizmo!

So let me know what kind of ice cream you'd like, add some chocolate sauce, nuts, and a cherry on top, pull up a chair, and dig in!  I'll be the one in the corner with a giant bowl of double chocolate with chocolate chunks.  And a spoon in each hand.

  1. Mmm, I'm always up for ice cream, especially when there is a little mystery thrown in. A little melted peanut butter would just put it over the top...anyway, just wanted to say congrats on the new book!

      Poor Dani! I promise, I only sent money! It's too expensive to send anything else across the Pond!
