All Things Jem and Merinda

In less than 2 weeks, The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder  will release in all e-book forms.  After that, your local bookstores and print orders will trickle in! I super want to encourage you to think about the print book though because the interior design is amazing

I wanted to use my blog space to kinda go all out Jem and Merinda and Jasper and Ray today.

I am kinda euphoric because I just turned in A Lesson in Love and Murder to my editor. I don't want to count my chickens, but it might turn out to be my favourite of the series. I really love it.  The girls go to Chicago and get wrapped up in all sorts of mystery and mayhem ---and anarchist bombs!  Theodore Roosevelt and Emma Goldman are our real life historical personages. And, Merinda finds herself in the midst of a bit of a love triangle when Benny Citrone of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police shows up ( much to Jasper Forth's chagrin).  Merinda, of course doesn't  do love triangles, so you'll have to check out how she reacts.
Also, I got to set some amazing scenes in some of my personal favourite buildings in Chicago.

a lot of ARC readers are talking about the Elgin and Winter Garden theatre which plays a HUGE part in the first book !

I am also beginning work on edits for Of Dubious and Questionable Memory: a novella sized adventure releasing on June 1.   In this exciting story, Jem and Merinda are lured State-side and to a mystery involving Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House.    

I visited Concord and Orchard House a few times last year for research <3

Finally, I have been so stoked that early readers have been reading and sharing the book.   The Goodreads giveaway is still running and you can go there to enter but also to read some early buzz! (see the widget on the side of my blog to enter directly)
