I’m so excited to share the winners of
my recent Superfan/Library Lovers contest!
Thanks to all who entered! In fact, I had such an overwhelming response that I raised the winning number of libraries from 50 to 80!!!  It’s amazing how many of you are advocates for your local library, and I thank you for wanting to share the Henrietta and Inspector Howard series with them!  

So, without further ado, Click Here for the list of lucky winners!

(Sorry I couldn't list all the winners here, but the newsletter couldn't handle it!)

And in Other News . . .

Also just wanted to share that A Ring of Truth recently hit #1 on Amazon in free kindle downloads across ALL genres!  Whoo-hoo!!!
