BURIED LEADS sneak peek!

Guess what went live for preorder on amazon.com last night, y’all? (No worries, out-of-town folks who want a signed copy: Fountain Bookstore will have them, and I’ll post links as soon as they have them up for preorder.)

To celebrate, I’m sharing the first snippet of the new Nichelle Clarke Headlines in Heels Mystery, BURIED LEADS, which will be available October 15, 2013 everywhere books are sold!

Are y’all ready to see what Nichelle gets into next? I’m so excited about this book. I don’t want to wish summer away, but I hope October comes quick! Also, thank you, every single one of you, for reading, and for your kind words and sweet messages. It’s still amazing to me that folks can buy my novel(s), and hearing from y’all that you enjoyed Nichelle’s adventure, or it made you laugh, or gave you an escape for a few hours means the world to me. Okay, before I really get to gushing, y’all clicked over for an excerpt, right? Here’s the beginning of chapter one:

Dead people can have the worst timing.

After a ridiculously long day of deadlines, criminals, and cops who did not want to talk to me, I wanted a hot bath and my warm bed. Is that too much for a girl to ask? Apparently so, because there I was, traipsing around the woods looking for a half-eaten dead guy who got himself discovered at eleven o’clock. At night. The glamorous life of a journalist.

Comment below and I’ll choose a random commenter for some BURIED LEADS swag, which should be here any day now!

    AHHHHHHHHH! October cannot come soon enough!! I am so excited! πŸ™‚

      Thanks, doll! I hope you like it. People keep telling me it’s better than Front Page. Which is really nice to hear, because I’m quite fond of them both, but this is a lot like being a mom: you send your babies out into the world and wonder what kind of reception they’ll get. πŸ™‚

    Loved your fist book and sure looking forward to this one. I will be watching for the release for my Kindle.

    1. LynDee

      Thank you, Ann! I hope you enjoy this one even more! πŸ™‚

    I rarely take the time to review books but yours was so fast paced and fun and thoroughly enjoyable I just had to. I’m super excited to read the next one. Keep writing!

    1. LynDee

      Aw, well thank you, Mindy! Comments like this truly make my days. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚

    Can’t wait to kick off fall time with the latest Nichelle adventures and mishaps. She is so witty and fun I feel like I am actually there listening to her tell me what she has been up to. I hope you entertain us with many such adventures in the future, LynDee.

    1. LynDee

      Aw, thanks, Linda! I love writing about Nichelle and her friends, and it makes me smile to hear that they’re entertaining other people, too. I can’t wait for y’all to see this new one! And I should get back to working on the third one … πŸ˜‰

    What a teaser! I can’t wait!!!!!!

    1. LynDee

      Thanks, Jenny! I’m just over the moon that y’all are so excitedβ€”I am, too! πŸ™‚

    Anxiously awaiting the release of Buried Leads! This is my absolute favorite genre and it’s pretty cool to get to say that I know who the author is!!! Keep ’em coming! πŸ™‚

    1. LynDee

      Thank you, Hillary! I’m working as fast as my little monkeys here will allow. BURIED LEADS will be out in October, and then right on the heels of that, I have a Christmas novella releasing in early December. I got word this week that book 3 (which I’m trying desperately to think up a title for) will be on sale in April 2014! Phew. I’m tired just thinking about it. But I sure am having fun. πŸ™‚

    Makes me wish I had a copy to read now. You will be busy with all the writing. Have fun.

    1. LynDee

      I am having so much fun with the new book, Cheryl! I’m glad you like the snippet, and I hope you enjoy the book. ARCs will be out next month! πŸ™‚

    I brought Front Page Fatality on my business trip. I just finished reading it in the airport and was glad my flight is late enough that I had a large block of uninterrupted time to finish it. I really enjoyed it and now wish desperately that your next book was out already. Thank you very much for making an airport stop much more enjoyable.

    1. LynDee

      Aw, thank you, Stephanie! I’m so glad it helped while away a day in an airport! I’m so excited for y’all to read BURIED LEADS this fall, and right on the heels of that I have a Christmas novella launching as part of a mystery anthology called THE HEARTACHE MOTEL, which will be out in December. Thanks for stopping by, and for reading!
