Early Christmas Ideas - Missing, Assumed Dead

While my Oregon-based murder mystery with amateur female sleuth is happily ebooked with MuseItUp Publishing, I've decided to go with the print edition myself. The main reason is that I've learned over the last couple of years, ebook is becoming predominant over print. But, there are plenty of people who still prefer to hold that paper in their hands.

For them, I have provided printed books at the lowest price I can sell the book and still make a small profit. That's fair, right? Here's the cover and blurb to get started. Throughout the next few weeks, I'll put up some additional posts with articles about the book and excerpts to illustrate its wonderfulness

Prejudice, murder, insanity, suicide: Every small town has its secrets.

When Kameron McBride receives notice she’s the last living relative of a missing man she’s never even heard of, the last thing she wants to do is head to some half-baked Oregon town to settle his affairs. But since she’s the only one available, she grudgingly agrees.

En route, she runs afoul of a couple of hillbillies and their pickup in an accident that doesn’t seem...accidental. Especially when they keep showing up wherever she goes. Lucky for her, gorgeous Deputy Mitch Caldwell lends her a hand, among other things. Her suspicions increase when the probate Judge tries a little too hard to buy the dead man’s worthless property.

Working on a hunch and trying to avoid the Judge’s henchmen, Kam probes deeper into the town’s secrets and finds almost no one she can trust. With Mitch’s help, she peels away the layers of prejudice, suicide, murder, and insanity. But someone in town doesn’t like her poking around, and when they show their intentions by shooting her through the police chief’s office window, the stakes are raised. Kam must find out what really happened to her dead relative before someone in this backward little town sends her to join him.

And she thought Oregon was going to be boring.


  1. Let's hear it for paperbacks! I just bought a book of short stories on Kindle and it doesn't have a linked ToC so you can't find anything in it.

  2. I always have trouble with making TOC links in ebooks. Half of it comes out as actual links; the other half as links to random words in the book. I pretty much gave up on it.

    I do miss the ability to quickly flip back in a story to re-read a section where it appears there's been a major plothole, a changed character name or description. Sometimes the search function just isn't enough.
