Have a Marlis Day!

Archive for August 2012

Another week of sand, sun, surf, shopping, and seafood at our favorite beach in Destin. My daughter Stephanie and I shared a condo with her girls Chase and Grayson, their friend Audrey, and their cousin Andrew. While there I read two good books: Miss Aggie’s Gone Missing by Frances Devine and Zemsta by Victoria Brown. My first mystery, Why Johnny Died, was still free on amazon, so whenever I noticed someone reading a Kindle or Nook, I shared this information. People always love something free. Thanks to all who ordered it!

We’re all getting adjusted to our new schedules. Softball is over. The kids started school, so I’m not so busy with pop-in visits. I’m reading a wonderful memoir: Sipping from the Nile, My Exodus from Egypt by Jean Naggar.

Have a lovely end of summer and thanks for reading my blog. If you’d like to see more beach photos, check out my facebook page.



Great news! For five days Amazon.com is offering my first book, WHY JOHNNY DIED, absolutely FREE as part of a promotion. Starting today, Thursday, August 2, until Monday, August 6, you may order this eBook for your Kindle, Nook, Iphone, or tablet  by just clicking on this link: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=Why+Johnny+Died

Please forward this to all your friends with e-readers. Even if you’ve already read it, please order it. The number of hits will help my numbers and promise more promotions. Thank you for taking the time to order this and forward to anyone and everyone you know! Any mention on Twitter or Facebook will be greatly appreciated.

For those who don’t know, WHY JOHNNY DIED, is the first of the Margo Brown Mysteries featuring schoolteacher/amateur sleuth Margo Brown. Of my five books, this has been my best-seller. Brief synopsis: When 7th grade teacher, Margo Brown, reads Johnny Benson’s journal, she finds clues that lead her to believe his death was not an accident. She and her zany best friend, Roxie, launch an investigation that has about as much structure as a nervous breakdown. While they almost lose their jobs and their lives, justice is served. This cozy mystery is filled with surprising twists and turns, is suitable for young adults as well as adults, and is humorous yet thoughtful.
