South Carolina Snaps / Quarry for $1.99

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

NEWS FLASH: QUARRY and QUARRY’S VOTE will be $1.99 on Kindle for 48 hours! First sale price on Quarry e-books.

QUARRY Kindle $1.99
Quarry's Vote
QUARRY’S VOTE Kindle $1.99

This week my update will be a short one, because (a) I just finished writing eight blog entries in support of LADY, GO DIE! (links will be posted), and (b) I am providing a few pictures from our recent South Carolina trip for Mickey’s induction into the SC author’s hall of fame.

But I do need to mention that ANTIQUES DISPOSAL, the new hardcover, is out even as I type this, as is the mass-market paperback edition of ANTIQUES KNOCK-OFF.

Also, the Perfect Crime trade paperbacks (with new after words) of the Nolan series are available now or soon will be. They are FLY PAPER, HUSH MONEY, HARD CASH, SCRATCH FEVER, SPREE and MOURN THE LIVING. Actually, the MOURN after word is recycled from the Five Star edition. Otherwise, new stuff.

There’s a nice review here of the new Heller novella collection, TRIPLE PLAY.

And a really nice review of ANTIQUES DISPOSAL from the perceptive Craig Clarke can be found here.

Here’s a fun review of BYE BYE, BABY.

And a very nice recommendation for LADY, GO DIE! right here.

Antiques Disposal

Antiques Disposal comes out today, so be sure to check your local bookseller or purchase a copy online:

Antiques Disposal is the latest Barbara Allan collaboration and the sixth in the Trash ‘n’ Treasures cozy series, with Brandy and her mother Vivian entering the competitive—and deadly—world of storage auctions. But if you’re a fan of M.A.C.’s more hardboiled work, don’t let the word cozy fool you—this series is both tough and funny. Here’s what Ron Fortier of Pulp Fiction Reviews had to say:

“As a fan of hardboiled detective fiction … [cozies are] not my particular brand of tea…[But deciding I’d take a chance with Antiques Disposal] is probably one of the smartest things I’ve done in a while. Why? Well simply because the book is so damn funny, I honestly couldn’t put it down. And the characters! … There is a charm and decency to these characters that immediately grabbed me and had me caring for them from page one….if all of the Trash ‘n’ Treasures Mysteries are as wonderful as Antiques Disposal, then sign me up for the long haul.”

And Publisher’s Weekly liked it too, wrting: “A classic gathering of suspects, under the guise of auctioning off the cornet, leads to an unexpected denouement.”

Plus, if you’re still on the fence, or would just like to catch up on the series, Amazon’s running a sale on the e-book of Antiques Bizarre. And it’s a heck of a sale at 100% off. I’m assuming this is very time limited, so act quickly. Here’s the link:
