Yes, folks. It’s that time again!
It rolls around every year just after Labor Day. You know what I’m talking about. You’ve probably already seen it in the stores and on TV. The Holiday Season! It will be here before you know it.
Now that we’re vaccinated, we are beginning to plan holiday get togethers. Some of us greet the season with joy, and others, with dread, but no matter how you look at it, it’s real and it’s happening sooner than you think.
This year there is an additional complication, however. Due to 20 months of pandemic, there are now grave supply chain delays. It took me over two weeks to receive my autoship cat supplies from Chewy, and I’m still waiting for the litter! I ordered author copies of my books from Amazon, and they took three weeks to get here. Postage costs have increased overnight, and companies who provide free shipping are struggling to adjust. I don’t know about you, but this year, I’m shopping early!
Readers on your gift list?
Here’s a brief index of my books. Adventure Cat, the 8th Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mystery, will publish in mid-November, so keep an eye out if you’re looking for Lynley’s latest escapade.
For cozy mystery fans, the Crazy Cat Lady series, 6 books featuring Lynley Cannon, a sixty-something cat shelter volunteer who finds more trouble than a cat in catnip. Pick your favorite. Each has a different theme, and books need not be read in order.
Cats’ Eyes: Look what the cat dragged in! When Lynley’s old kitty Fluffo discovers a stolen uncut diamond, Lynley finds herself accused of murdering the thieves.
Copy Cats: Lynley exposes a breed cat counterfeiting ring and becomes the target of a serial killer who murders with a grisly, cat-like claw.
Cat’s Paw: Two suspicious deaths at an elite art retreat send Lynley running back to Portland, but murder follows in her wake.
Cat Call: Lynley takes over as cat handler for a TV pilot only to find the show is hexed and murder is waiting in the wings.
Cat Café: A body is discovered on the floor of the cat café, and all the black cats are missing!
Cosmic Cat: When a superhero cosplayer falls to his death at a comic con, Lynley is left holding the bag— and a cat!
Cat Conundrum: A locked room. A dead man. The cat is the only witness, and he isn’t talking.
For something with a bit of Christmas spirit, Cat Noel, a Crazy Cat Lady Christmas novella. Lynley finds a new meaning of Christmas when a Wiccan’s familiar is catnapped, and Lynley becomes her only hope.
Like some paranormal with your cozy? A ghost cat and a cold case murder turn a septuagenarian’s beach house dream into a nightmare in Ghost Cat of Ocean Cove.
For the not-so-cozy mystery fan, Placid River Runs Deep, a stand-alone mystery: When Ember MacKay learns she has a life-threatening illness, she flees to the old Placid River cabin, but instead of solace, she finds mayhem, murder and a revenge plot that has waited a generation to unfold.
For your favorite fantasy fan, Cat Summer, a cat sci-fantasy novel where Sentient cats save the world from an evil older than history—twice! Or try Cat Winter, where the fate of the universe rests in Slayter’s black, feline paws.
For poetry lovers, Cat Poems: For the Love of Cats, celebrating love, loss, and life shared with the feline species.
For fans of shorter fiction, Cat’s Cradle, a Crazy Cat Lady short mystery, and The Dream Spinner, short fantasy about a nursing home cat who guides the residents through their dreams and nightmares.
All my books come in paperback and eBook format.
