THANKS SO MUCH to all of you who bought GUILTY AS CINNAMON in its first week out, spread the word, and visited with me on my blog tour. CINNAMON reached #2 in Cozy Mystery on B&N.com, and garnered some great reviews. It was a real treat to meet so many of you Friday night in Kalispell at Think Local on the Holiday Art Walk, and Saturday afternoon at Fact & Fiction in Missoula during the Author Extravaganza. Signed books will be available both places, as well as the usual haunts in the Flathead and Missoula valleys.
Reviews are coming in—and they are sweet! CINNAMON garnered some lovely reviews in its first week in the world. Booklist said “This engaging cozy makes the most of its Seattle location, effectively weaves facts about spices and their uses throughout the narrative, and boasts the feisty Pepper at its center. Sure to appeal to fans of Susan Wittig Albert’s China Bayles herbal mysteries.”
Fresh Fiction said: “Charming second installment in this cozy mystery series. . Leslie Budewitz is quickly becoming one of my favorite cozy mystery writers! I love how she blends together world building and character development to create just the perfect atmosphere for her stories.”
Reader reviews matter a great deal, so I hope you’ll take a moment to post your thoughts on Amazon, Goodreads, B&N.com, or whereever you read and share reviews. THANK YOU!
Next week in the blog-O-sphere: Thursday, I’ll be at Club Henhouse, the Henery Press blog, talking about writing with my inner Interior Designer—putting my childhood as a furniture salesman’s daughter to work for my characters!
On my own blog—right here, on Tuesday—I’ll be sharing a list of my favorite writing books.
Meanwhile, I’m working on the next Food Lovers’ Village mystery, currently titled FLV #4. We’ll brainstorm later!
See you on the page —
