you remember when summer meant time off? I guess that's one of those
things about growing up--time off is a luxury most of us can't afford
very often. My writing slows to a crawl in June and July. Swimming
lessons, relatives and vacations are just the tip of the to-do list. I
do have a few irons in the fire worth mentioning.
1. SALE: July 3-7 The Misadventures of the Laundry Hag: Skeletons in the Closet will be FREE on Amazon so please help spread the word! More readers means more likelihood of future hag stories.
Audiobooks: I don't know about you but finding time to sit and read is
like herding cats during the summer. As in, not gonna happen. I've got
several audiobooks from my favorite authors that I listen to while
working out, cleaning and driving from point A to B. So I am thrilled to
announce that Daisy Dominatrix and The Misadventures of the Laundry Hag: Skeletons in the Closet are both in production right now! All audiobooks will be available on Amazon, Audible and iTunes. Release dates TBA.
Cover Art: I grew tired of having unimpressive covers so I've been
devoting my time and money to learning cover art design. LOTS of trial
and error but luckily I have a great group of friends who aren't afraid
to tell me when something sucks. As you can see, both Daisy Dominatrix and Stellar Timing
have brand *spanking* new covers and I am *over the moon* with the
results. Finally what's on the outside reflects the fabulous stories on
4. Conference: I will be attending RWA nationals in Atlanta from July 17-20. Would love to see you there!
5. Store: I have a storefront
set up on my website now with some of my favorite giveaway items up for
sale. Hag Swag, Daisy mug and iPhone 5 cover and the latest, undamaged
goods from the upcoming Damaged Goods mysteries. Send me pictures of
anything you buy and I'd be happy to post them on my site!
6. Contests: Two going on right now via rafflecopter. One on the Damaged
Goods Facebook page, for some killer new swag (Click the banner below ;-) and a mystery prize giveaway on my Jennifer L. Hart Facebook page celebrating 100 likes. Many ways to enter so act soon!

Coming May 9th!
Baby on Board! Maggie Phillips is beyond ready to have her new baby so life can get back to normal. Unfortunately, “normal” for the laundry hag is a relative term. When a neighbor goes missing, Neil begs his wife to stay out of it and focus on the upcoming labor and delivery, but Maggie can’t help but poke around into the man’s life out of habit and curiosity. But when the neighbor’s body is discovered stuffed into his own freezer and his wife and new baby also go missing, it’s up to the very pregnant laundry hag to clean house and get to the bottom of yet another misadventure, even if the killer is closer to home than she ever imagined.
Murder, scandal and industrial strength juicers. What more could a mom-to-be need?

Another day, another secret.
Novice PI Mackenzie Taylor is going stir crazy. Deep in the throes of a classic New England winter, the endless hours of following cheating spouses have left her feeling jaded and restless. Not to mention the emotional tug of war when the father of her teenage child suddenly starts hanging around and putting a major crimp in Mackenzie’s fledgling relationship with the hot Detective Hunter Black. So when she's asked to help find a missing bride, Mackenzie jumps at the chance to do some good.
Juggling the missing persons case, two headstrong men, being a new landlord of a rundown building, and a sixteen-year-old daughter/ BFF actually acting her age for once and crushing on a much older man has Mackenzie’s contemplating the upside of running away from home. Instead s…
