NEWS NEWS NEWS Wendy Tyson NEWS
A DARK HOMAGE publishing by Down & Out Books January 20, 2020.

Description
A sordid sex tape. A venture capital firm. A secret society of women. A Catholic nun. All have one connection in common: Miriam Cross.

Miriam Cross, author, feminist and philanthropist, disappears from her Philadelphia home. A year later, a lonely recluse named Emily Cray is brutally murdered in her bed in a small Pennsylvania town. The police discover that Emily Cray and Miriam Cross were one and the same, but if they know who killed Miriam, they’re not sharing. Miriam’s niece Lucinda wants answers. She turns to the one woman she knows she can trust—private investigator Delilah Percy Powers.

As Delilah and her team of female detectives—a militant homemaker, an ex-headmistress, and a former stripper—investigate Miriam’s death, they uncover more questions than solutions. Why had the famous author been living under a new identity? Who were the women seen coming out of Emily Cray’s home at all hours of the night? Did Miriam have a mysterious lover? What was Miriam’s allegiance to an international secret society of high-powered women? What was the famous author doing with a New York venture capital firm?

As Delilah and her staff get closer to the truth, they become submerged in a criminal underworld of unfathomable cruelty and greed with implications that go far beyond the gruesome death of one woman or the boundaries of one country. Eventually Miriam’s fight for justice becomes Delilah’s own…until Delilah’s obsession with finding the truth proves just as deadly.

Praise for A DARK HOMAGE:

“A Dark Homage is masterful. Wendy Tyson’s novel is more than a compelling mystery, it’s a detailed, honest examination of tough-as-nails women who refuse to be intimidated, no matter how dark the story turns. Tyson skillfully turns from humor to tension in the span of a single sentence, and readers will be left wanting to know what happens next with Delilah and her team. A must read.” —E.A. Aymar, author of The Unrepentant

Fabulous announcement. Congratulations Doyin Richards thank you Feiwel and Friends especially Liz Szabla and illustrator Joe Cepeda.

I’ve been sitting on this news ever since my dad died, but I can finally share it.

The great folks at Feiwel and Friends signed me to release my third children’s book titled “Watch Me.” It’s a tribute to my dad and every other immigrant from a “sh*thole country” who came to America to add immense value to our nation. It’s also being illustrated by one of the most talented illustrators in the world, Joe Cepeda.

Big ups to the best editor on the planet Liz Szabla for giving me the opportunity to share my dad’s story with the world ❤️

More to come.

Author Jody Holford's Deadly Ride (Britton Bay Mystery) Paperback – Kensington Publishing Corp. publishes today and is the third book in her amazing Britton Bay Mystery series.

Books 1 & 2 received great praise and book three promises to be as much fun as Jody's previous books.

Here's a brief:

Newspaper editor Molly Owens loves her new life and her new man-in-the beautiful seaside town of Britton Bay, Oregon. But when a car-show killer strikes, she needs to put the brakes on the culprit...
As editor-in-chief of the Britton Bay Bulletin, Molly steps in for a sick reporter to cover the Classic Car Crawl, an exhibit of vintage automobiles. Her main challenge is not being driven to distraction by the presence of her hunky boyfriend, Sam Alderich.

Praise for Deadly News

“The news is all good for this cozy mystery! Deadly News will make you want to pack up and move to the seaside town of Britton Bay, Oregon. The characters are vividly brought to life, there’s a perfect touch of romance, and the mystery has enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. Don’t miss out on a charming new series—grab this cozy while it’s hot off the press!”
—Sarah Fox, USA Today bestselling author

Heck Shannyn Schroeder’s post!

"Don’t worry. I’m not going to try to convince dedicated romance readers that main characters can get divorced and the book can still be considered a romance. I am very firmly in the HEA or GTFO camp of romance. I read and write romance because of the happy endings." —Shannyn Schroeder on divorce in romance.

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY Shannyn Schroeder
Today is the steamy release of MY FOREVER PLUS ONE the Daring Divorcees Book 3.

Publishing by Entangled Publishing, LLC. Who doesn't enjoy a nice romp? Or firemen? Or Chicago? It's all here for the reading!

Briefly—Evelyn is a woman who has everything--a successful career as a TV producer, and her best friend—sexy firefighter Owen Hanson—who looks mighty fine as her plus-one to awards dinners and backyard picnics. But something is missing and it’s not just the sex.

Owen Hanson is living the dream—a Chicago firefighter who volunteers at a youth center on the Southside and he’s got his best friend Evelyn—who knows him better than anyone. When Evelyn starts hinting about wanting something more, Owen panics.

Sex changes everything but taking their relationship to the next level surpasses even their wildest dreams. Until Evelyn’s ex-husband shows up and could make even the most perfect couple crash and burn...

Hello, all you "sweets" loving authors. This is one 150ish article not to be missed. Francesca Pardo of 150ish tried to convince me that both our hunt and subsequent tasting involved "0" calorie intake. Hmmm, not so sure about that but truly, can anyone think of a better way to reward oneself after spending one running hour on the treadmill than with a delicious Italian pastry? Seriously, we met really nice bakers with great stories and let's face it this is one grand #canolli tour I've already volunteered for next season. Oh and a note to our Literary Counsel authors. If you're writing a canolli recipe into your next book I am sure the folks at 150ish would like to learn of your recipe for success. Thanks, Francesca Pardo for creating such a great tour and additional thanks to tasters: Woodworth Shepard and Robert Lane.

Fabulous review. Thank you for sharing Tracy Gardner

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ New review of #OutOfThePicture!
"Characters immediately feel like long, lost friends.
The setting is charming in a way that makes it feel as if you, too, are coming home.
Ms. Gardner’s writing flows beautifully, and she weaves the intricacies of art authentication seamlessly into a well-crafted plot.
The mystery, too, is top-notch, with so many suspects, clues, and red herrings that it will keep you guessing until the end. I thought I had identified the perpetrator early on, but with so much misdirection, I had to second-guess myself several times.
Out of the Picture is a delightful cozy mystery. It paints a bright future for author Tracy Gardner and what promises to be a fabulous series." -Barbara S.
