A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be. ~ Douglas Pagels

Yesterday, Judy decided to create "Promote Your Friends Day" (after carefully Googling to make sure she really was the creator of said day). I thought it was such a good idea, I decided to do it, too!

Go congratulate Allie for the sale of her novel, "One Night In Boston" to Samhain Publishing! Allie is a fantastic writer, and it constantly amazed me that she hadn't found a home for her stuff. Now, some exceptionally wise editor at Samhain has rectified that. Yay for Allie!

The very busy Ceri has THREE books coming out this year, two from Samhain and one from Whiskey Creek! Feel free to head on over to her blog and tell her congrats.

And friend by osmosis (is the friend of a friend my friend, because I know that the enemy of my enemy is my friend... or am I just my own Grandpa?), Colleen Gleason just celebrated the release of her first novel, "The Rest Falls Away" -- this book is absolutely the next book I will purchase. Head over and check it out.

And just because they're warm, wonderful human beings, feel free to go say howdy to:

Charity, Anno, Mary and Tori.

Got friends? Why not promote 'em?


So... I was at the library the other day, and I don't even know why I was looking in this particular section, but some brightly colored books caught my eye (they were on the very bottom shelf, it's weird I even saw them). Once I read the titles, I knew I had to read the books -- and I haven't been sorry.

If you like cozies with strong characters (and a decent mystery, but it's the characters that have me hooked), you have to read Jill Churchill's Jane Jeffrey's mysteries.

The first one, I listed yesterday - "Grime and Punishment".

Today, I'm starting - "A Farewell to Yarns"

Then comes "A Quiche Before Dying". I can't wait!

Check 'em out!
