LET'S GET COZY (DOUBLE POST DAY): DUE OR DIE - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

DOUBLE POST DAY?
TODAY I AM POSTING TWO COZY MYSTERIES
BECAUSE ALTHOUGH THE PEN NAME IS DIFFERENT,
THE AUTHOR IS THE SAME. BE SURE AND CHECK
THEM BOTH OUT TODAY!
GIVEAWAY ENDED 
DUE OR DIE
A Library Lover's Mystery
BY JENN McKINLAY

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
What is the original meaning of the word clue?

Answering tricky reference questions like this one is more than enough excitement
for library director Lindsey Norris. Until another murder is committed in her cozy hometown of Briar Creek, Connecticut, and the question of who did it must be answered before someone else is checked out—for good.

Carrie Rushton, the president of the Friends of the Library, has been accused of murdering her husband. The evidence is stacking up against Carrie, but neither Lindsey nor the Briar Creek crafternoon club is buying it.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jenn McKinlay is the New York Times bestselling author of the Cupcake Bakery mystery series and the Library Lover's mystery series. She also writes the Decoupage mystery series under the name Lucy Lawrence and the Good Buy Girls mystery series under the name Josie Belle. 

Her main interests are reading, writing, baking, knitting and skateboarding. She lives in sunny AZ in a house overrun with kids, pets and guitars.

From her website, Josie writes about herself, "I am writing up a storm in the corner of my kitchen in my house in the desert. While my house, which is filled to bursting with kids, pets and my husband's guitars, is not the New York City apartment I dreamed of as a teen, I wouldn't trade it or the life I am living for anything!" 

SOME Q & A FROM THE "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS" ON JENN McKINLAY'S WEBSITE?
What are you working on now?
I'm working on the fifth mystery in the cucpake bakery series GOING, GOING, GANACHE. I am studiously researching all I can about the best ganache frosting recipes - it's brutal, truly.

How long did it take for you to get published? What advice can you give me on writing a book?
I decided to be a writer when I was sixteen. I didn’t actually write anything until I was twenty-five. I sold my first book when I was thirty-three. So, you can see it was a long and winding journey to being published. My advice: Get your butt in the chair every day, write every day, then, when your work is the absolute best it can be, submit to publishers/​agents who publish/​represent what you write. Then do it all over again until you wear them down into publishing you. Hey, it worked for me.
