Ink, Red, Dead--You Asked for It!
Coming this Halloween will be Kiki Lowenstein's latest adventure--Ink, Red, Dead--a novella that finds Kiki and her friends drawn into the world of a cat hoarder. The book will be available on Kindle.
Why did I decide to write a new adventure for Kiki? The next traditional Kiki mystery--Ready, Scrap, Shoot--won't be out until April, 2012. Fans have clamored for more Kiki, and I had an idea that wouldn't go away. The plot fit neatly between Make, Take, Murder and Ready, Scrap, Shoot.
The Kindle book will include a wonderful recipe for pumpkin cookies and a free gift, A Crafty Kind of Murder, the progressive story that my blog sisters and I wrote.
To help celebrate the new release, I'll be hosting a Halloween party on October 31 from 9 p.m. EST to midnight EST on my new Facebook page. There will be prizes and special guest appearances and surprises galore. Just go to that new page and hit "like," and then visit during the party on October 31. We'll select lucky commenters (I hope my guests and my status updates will inspire comments!) as winners.
You know, Kiki is like an old friend of mine. I always enjoy spending time with her. You, my fans, have told me you want more Kiki. I'm lucky to be able to respond to your request!
Now, I'm curious. You know that each of my Kiki books hits on a social problem or concern. What would you like to see me tackle in an upcoming book?
