LET'S GET COZY! REVENGE OF THE CHILI QUEENS: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 GIVEAWAY ENDED
REVENGE OF THE CHILI QUEENS
A Chili Cook-Off Mystery
BY KYLIE LOGAN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The author of Death by Devil’s Breath takes the chili cook-off circuit to southern Texas to prove that revenge is a dish best served hot . . .

Everyone in San Antonio remembers the Alamo, but how many remember the Chili Queens? Back in the early twentieth century, these spicy señoras sold their lip-smacking chili in plazas all around the city. Now, as part of the Chili Showdown, Maxie and her half-sister, Sylvia, are dressing up as the Chili Queens to raise money for charity.

But someone wasn’t feeling too charitable toward a local troubadour, who is murdered at the fundraiser. When their friend Nick Falcone, head of security for the Showdown, actually becomes the prime suspect, it’s up to Maxie and Sylvia to turn the heat up on a killer, who’s planning a chili reception for them . . .
 
INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pseudonym for Casey Daniels.

So maybe you already know that I’m not just Kylie Logan, I’m also Casey Daniels and a few other writers, too. What’s it like to have multiple personalities and the pen names to go with them? Well, I was once lucky enough to interview mystery great Elizabeth Peters for an article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. She writes under more than one name, too, and she described the experience perfectly, “If you’re only one person,” she said, “you’re boring!”

And I guess I’d add to that—if you only write one mystery series, you’re boring, too! Or maybe you’re just not getting visited as often by the Idea Fairy. The only way to keep that particular critter quiet is to follow where those ideas lead and to date, they’ve led me to write three different mystery series under the Kylie name.

So who is Kylie? I’m a fulltime writer who has loved mysteries since I was a kid. My dad was a Cleveland Police detective, and he introduced me to Sherlock Holmes stories. He also gave me my first investigating experiences when on his days off, we’d pile into the car and hit the streets to look for stolen cars. When he retired from the force, Dad became the head of security for the Cleveland Public Library.

Crooks and books! I guess I come by my love for mysteries honestly.

I have a degree in English, experience as a journalist and writing teacher, and lots of ideas about interesting ways to kill people. This makes me an excellent guest as cocktail parties, but I’ve noticed that the hostess doesn’t always trust me near the food. Could that have something to do with the book on poisons sticking out of my purse?

I began my career writing historical romance and my book “Devil’s Diamond” was nominated for a RITA award as historical of the year by Romance Writers of America. I’ve also written contemporary romance, young adult horror (as Zoe Daniels and Connie Laux), and one children’s book, “Fright Knight,” in the RL Stine’s Ghosts of Fear Street series. If you click on the “AKA” button at the top of the page, you’ll see all my pen names.

I enjoy weaving and knitting, exploring old cemeteries, and I am a beekeeper. I can’t pass up an antique shop (there might be buttons in there!). I can’t put down a classic book (even if I already know the story!). And I can’t say no to a good bowl of chili. Lucky for me, my husband is the world’s greatest chili maker.

When I’m not writing, I’m usually with my family and our two dogs, Ernie, an adorable Airedale, and Oscar, a Jack Russell rescue who came for a short-term stay and ten years later, is still here. Those of you who have ever lived with/met/had dealings with a Russell will certainly understand how knowing him has increased my propensity for murder.

I am a fan of Kylie Logan's League of Literary Ladies Mysteries series. A Chili Cook-Off Mystery series sounds like another great one. I am looking forward to reading REVENGE OF THE CHILI QUEENS for it sounds like a book I will enjoy.

I am interested because it is about chili. Hoosier chili and Texas chili are two different critters. I want to see what she put in the chili and of course solve the mystery!
