Song of the Chimney Sweep – Blog Tour #HistoricalFiction #Mystery #Giveaway

Song of the Chimney Sweep

by Tamatha Cain

Genre: Historical Fiction, Mystery

Love is a song played on repeat…

A cryptic blog post leads cold case podcasters Melody and Dorian on a twisty journey back in time to uncover the mysterious story of a forgotten missing woman.

In 1969 near the Florida/Georgia Line, idealistic young Betty Langdon and fast-rising R&B singer Dominicus Owens begin an irresistible but dangerous interracial romance that ends under mysterious, heartbreaking circumstances. Betty is forced to return to her rural home to care for her manipulative mother, while Dominicus goes on to mega-stardom with his band The Downtown Sound. She follows his skyrocketing career from behind the front desk of a dying highway motel–until one day decades later, she disappears.

Now, a popular true crime podcast produced by college friends Melody Hinterson and Dorian Santos takes on the cold case of a missing local woman. The duo’s carefully-balanced workplace dynamic is weirdly off-kilter lately, but they can’t take their eyes off the investigation as the intriguing new story suddenly boosts the show into the national spotlight. When the investigation uncovers the missing woman’s diaries full of family secrets and the century-old legend of a fortune hidden in an old chimney somewhere in town, the truth behind the podcast’s mystery suddenly becomes personal, and Melody must make life-changing choices before the final episode airs.

But who owns the rights to a secret?

Shadow of the Gypsy Blog Tour and Guest Post #Mystery #Thriller – Shelly Frome

Shadow of the Gypsy

by Shelly Frome

Genre: Mystery, Thriller

Josh Bartlett had figured all the angles, changed his name, holed up as a small-town features writer in the seclusion of the Blue Ridge. Only a few weeks more and he’d begin anew, return to the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut and Molly (if she’d have him) and, at long last, live a normal life.

After all, it was a matter of record that Zharko had been deported well over a year ago. The shadowy form John had glimpsed yesterday at the lake was only that — a hazy shadow under the eaves of the activities building. It stood to reason his old nemesis was still ensconced overseas in Bucharest or thereabouts well out of the way.

And no matter where he was, he wouldn’t travel south over eight hundred miles to track Josh down. Surely that couldn’t be, not now, not after all this.

Why Write Fiction?

by Shelly Frome

Finding myself between projects, I often ask myself why I can’t simply go on with my life, do the chores, make the rounds, engage in social activities, etc.? Then I start to recall what other writers of fiction have disclosed. To cite a few, there’s the opportunity for revenge, a source of entertainment with the potential to entertain others, a chance to confront something or someone that will never play itself out in reality.

Personally speaking, I myself began to consider what Anne Lamott suggested on you-tube that led to the development of my latest tale Shadow of the Gypsy. She put it this way:  How alive are you willing to be? Diving deep within yourself, delving for your truth that potentially will become so meaningful it will double back on your readers’ lives? What’s truly at risk here during the course of this possible odyssey? What’s the driving force underpinning something you can’t afford to lose like a loved one; the chance of hitting the jackpot and a carefree life; a rung atop the ladder of success, etc. Now let it happen and work through the throes of the aftermath. Along these same lines, what are you so conflicted about you can’t afford to face the consequences? But if you do go through with it fictitiously, the pull of what happens promises to be much more compelling than continuing to remain stuck.   

As a case in point, during the early days of vaguely contemplating Shadow, I recalled feeling greatly deprived as a kid because I never had a father and my mother barely looked out for me. On the other hand, it left me free to experience all kinds of things and see for myself. But to write about my own life was too pat, just a matter of this happened and then that. Nothing that built toward some meaningful closure. Nothing that would sustain my imagination.  

But then, finally, came the trigger of the magical what-if? What if the mother in question was a complete mystery, a former foster child from Hungary who, rumor had it, had been taken in by some denomination which ran an exclusive private school in the pristine hills of Connecticut? What if she had some dicey connection with a rogue gypsy who was also from the “old country”? What would her estranged son have to gain by confronting her? What would he have to lose as his life potentially turned upside down?  It was a start. It was a beginning.

It had promise well beyond the same old routine.

Kate Matthews Mystery Series Book 1

A client dying on her massage table is traumatic enough for Kate Matthews, but when the police declare that death a homicide, her life is upended as she is cast as the major suspect.


None of this is what Kate expected from her move to the peaceful, beach town of Santa Barbara, California. After a near-fatal heart attack, an early retirement from her Los Angeles law firm, and a change in careers, Kate envisioned a quiet life with her wife, Alicia, and their grown children.


Since her client, Celia Tucker, held a politically-influential position on the California Coastal Commission, the murder becomes a media event. Kate finds herself and her family sucked into the maelstrom. The former lawyer has all she can do to find the truth behind Celia’s death without adding her own name to the body count.

Jane DiLucchio is a late bloomer when it comes to writing.

She spent many years as a teacher (first elementary school and later at the community college level), massage therapist, and backyard farmer before giving in to the little voices that kept sounding off in her head.

Since there’s a thin line between a psychotic and a writer (psychotics try to convince everyone that the voices they hear are real; writers write it down and tell everyone its fiction), Jane finally decided to give in to the voices rather than undergo intensive psychotherapy.

Jane and her wife are raising their two cats in a loving home in Southern California. (Actually, the cats allow Jane and Sue to live with them in return for certain personal services, but that’s another story entirely.) Jane continues to raise crops, travel, write, and spend time with her friends and family – all activities she loves.

Book Spotlight – Missing in France #Crime #Mystery

 

Title:  Missing in France  (Book #4 in the Anna Davies Mystery Series)

Author:  Rita Lee Chapman

Genre:  Crime mystery

Main character description (short).

Anna Davies is the protagonist of this series.  She is curious, persevering and tenacious.

Synopsis:

When Mike accepts a two-year contract in France, Anna is delighted at the prospect of spending time in Paris and Marseille.  She doesn’t anticipate being drawn into yet another mystery, one which puts her own life in danger. 

Brief Excerpt 250 words:

Chapter One

The Chase

I could hear footsteps behind me as I ran down the cobblestone street.   It was narrow and dark and I knew I had to get to where there were some people.  My chasers were closer now, their footsteps echoing off the walls and I didn’t know if I could keep going for much longer.  My breathing was coming in heavy gasps and my chest was burning. At my age, I was not used to running.  Surely there were people around somewhere, it wasn’t very late.  I had to find help, or somewhere I could hide. 

Everything was closed; there didn’t seem to be anyone around.  I turned a corner and flew up a flight of steps to the next street, where I could see street lights throwing their welcoming light.  The men were not far behind.  I had no idea who these men were or why they were chasing me.  Did they want to kill me, or only to frighten me?  I didn’t know – but I wasn’t slowing down to find out.  I felt real fear enveloping me.  In fact, I was terrified.  I had to keep running.

I saw people lying in the street up ahead.  Why were they lying in the street?  Were they dead?   As I came closer, a few heads popped up, but nobody moved to stand up or to help me.  Why was no-one trying to help me?  They stared at me with eyes that didn’t see and turned away.  I ran past them, they couldn’t, or wouldn’t, help me. I kept running; down another cobbled alleyway, around another corner.  I had a stitch in my side now and I was gasping for breath.  How much longer could I outrun them?  

Why should readers buy this book (50 words max)?

This book will appeal to readers who enjoy mysteries combined with travel and a touch of romance.  As a stand-alone book, it is not necessary to have read the previous three books in the series.
