Top Drawer News — The Week, Past and Future

Thanks for sharing this!

We’ve been traveling across the Internet again.

This week we visited the Musa Publishing blog, where we shared our potato soup.

If you have an infestation of vampires, you might want to avail yourself of this recipe.

The soup’s pretty good at warding off chilly weather too. 🙂

We also visited the blog of author David Chuka and revealed an exclusive sneak peek at the cover of our latest book. Hop on over to David’s blog and have a look.

We were really honored to be interviewed on David’s blog. In addition to being an all-around nice guy, he’s the author of a long list of children’s books, including the Billy and the Monster series.

Visit his Amazon author page and sample a few of his wonderful books.

Then we joined bestselling author Apryl Baker in celebrating the 2014 Young Adult/New Adult blogfest.

Apryl’s young adult series, The Ghost Files, has been optioned for a movie! Read all about it here.

We’re jealous…in a good competitive way, of course! So we created a quiz to find out if you, dear reader, could play our protagonist, Vandy Spencer, when we sell the movie rights to our young adult novel Walled In.

Take the quiz on Apryl’s blog here or or stay right here in Carpenter Country.

That’s the news of our travels for the week past.

Now…onto the week future!

Next week…DRUMROLL…our cozy mystery, A Cause for Murder, will launch on Amazon’s new Kindle Scout program!

That’s right, A Cause for Murder debuts on Monday, October 27!

We’re SOOOO excited! We invite you to come right back here to Carpenter Country on Monday to check out the cover reveal and the link we’ll post to the excerpt.

The Kindle Scout program is essentially crowd sourcing. That is, readers nominate books for a publishing contract.

We hope you’ll love the excerpt enough to vote for A Cause for Murder!
