Carried to the Grave is out in audio today!

Delighted to say that after a long wait, Carried to the Grave and Other Stories: A Food Lovers’ Village Mystery, is out in audiobook today, in all audio formats. It’s the last book in the Village series, a collection of five contemporary short stories featuring Erin and the Villagers, and a novella, “An Unholy Death,” a historical prequel set in 1910, the year Erin’s great-grandparents, Paddy and Kate Murphy, married and started the Merc in Jewel Bay, Montana. Turns out Erin may have inherited her sleuthing skills.

There is one more Village short story, “The Picture of Guilt,” originally published in Murder in the Mountains, a collection of short stories by 9 authors. It’s also available free to newsletter subscribers — sign up here. Erin and Adam are on the trail of the wily huckleberry, and an equally wily killer.

And who knows, maybe Erin or Kate will return for another story or two! Meanwhile, enjoy the trip to Montana — via audio.

CarriedToTheGrave_final_1875I am delighted to announce the release, next week, of CARRIED TO THE GRAVE, my first Food Lovers’ Village Short Story, featuring Erin Murphy and her village neighbor, Wendy the Baker. When Wendy’s family gathers after her grandmother’s funeral, she and Erin discover a decades-old secret that could prove still deadly.

The story will be available free to my newsletter subscribers. The summer edition will go out Tuesday, August 9, and will include the link and password to the Members Only page of my website, where you’ll be able to download the story in mobi, epub, and pdf formats. Newsletter subscribers receive seasonal updates, announcements of new books, and news of special events and giveaways. Subscribe on my website or through this link.

After writing only full-length novels the past few years, I wrote TWO short stories in June! The other is a historical set in Montana in 1885—more on that later!

And if you subscribe to this blog, thank you! The newsletter is separate, and I hope you’ll join my little community. Nonsubscribers will have a chance to buy the story later.
