Murder By Magic Free to celebrate Libby's 10th Jubilee!

Accent Press, my esteemed publishers, have decided to try an experiment and offer Murder by Magic free as an ebook for five days. Click on the picture of the cover, as the link I inserted here doesn't seem to work. There are members of the RNA and the CWA I know who have self (or indie) published books and done this, and I believe it has benefits, but I'm not sure how to let people know. I have, of course, put the link on Twitter and Facebook and a few people have retweeted and shared the link, but I'm wary of going on and on about it. I've unfollowed and un-friended (gosh, the language we use) others for doing that - even people I know quite well. I suppose I should go off on a blog tour, but preferably for readers, not writers. Most of the people I know on Twitter are other writers or people in the industry. Facebook is mostly friends and family - and other writers! Hey-ho. Queen's weather today, for the Royal Jubilee Pageant/Flotilla. Spent a lovely afternoon with a few friends yesterday, and thankfully the sun made an appearance. Today it's wet, grey and cold and I am NOT going to a street party. Good luck to all those who are. So - as I wave Murder By Magic off into the great wide world, Murder in the Monastery takes its place on the computers. The first chapter of which you can read at the end of Murder by Magic, should you be minded to buy it. And of course, it will be available in print next week.

I have always loved to read from an early age and now at 36 I am very picky.... after recently giving in and buying a kindle at the end of june as opposed to good old print I have to tell you that I read a sample of Murder by magic on the same day. Two hours later I had purchased and downloaded all the others in the series....They are simply wonderful. Its now July 13 2012 three weeks after buying my lovely kindle and Im on my second read through from the beginning. You have made me a very happy lady but a book widow to my husband... Thank you for writting such wonderfully in depth and witty characters...
