An Early Review, A Signing, and A Galley Proof to Work On


Advanced Review Copies (ARCs) of my November release, A Basket of Trouble, the third book in my Claire Hanover gift basket designer series, are apparently going out to reviewers, because one reviewer has already published her 5-star review of the book! You can read Lynn Farris's review in her Mystery Books Examiner on-line column HERE. I'm thrilled with what she had to say about A Basket of Trouble, especially, "This aspect of the book makes it a great option for book clubs to consider"!

As for my RM Outdoor Adventures series, I finished up my Colorado book signings for the newly-released third book in it, Fatal Descent, with a signing at the Broadway Book Mall in Denver this past Sunday. I teamed up with fellow Colorado mystery author Bonnie Biafore, and you can see us both in the photo below.


And lastly, I just received the galley proofs for A Basket of Trouble, so I will be hard at work over the next couple of weeks, picking through it for any errors. Wish me luck!

Hi Sarah,
Midnight Ink sends paper ARCs to a very select few review publications (like Publishers Weekly and Library Journal). They also make electronic copies available via the NetGalley system to reviewers who qualify. I don't know what the exact qualification are, but I think they relate to where the reviewers post their reviews and how many potential readers might see those posts. If you have a review blog and would like to see if you can get a NetGalley copy of A BASKET OF TROUBLE, email me at beth07 AT bethgroundwater.com and I will send on your contact info to my publicist at Midnight Ink.

Hi Cozy in Texas,
Thanks for stopping by!
