I’m buffing and honing Bidding On Death, and also working on my book blurbs.
Smashwords gives you places to post a short description and a longer description. Here are the blurbs as they stand now.
“Short description: Cissy Rayburn finds a body again. Someone bashed in Rose Jackson’s head, and left her obnoxious chihuahua an orphan. Now Cissy is stuck with Paco the chihuhua and convinced that the murder is connected with the estate auction Rose just went to. Others at the auction include Cissy’s friend Julia, and Cissy herself. What was the killer looking for, and how ruthlessly will he continue the search?”
1998 – On-line auctions are the new craze, and tech writer and vineyard co-owner Cissy Rayburn is joining the frenzy. New friend Amy is teaching Cissy and old friend Julia how to navigate the wonderful world of eBuy. But while the ladies were at Cissy’s house on the computer, someone broke into Amy’s and Julia’s houses.
Could it have something to do with the weekend estate sale they all went to? The other big buyer at the auction was Rose Jackson, retired county government employee and on-line auction shark. Cissy wonders if Rose’s house was broken into as well. But when she stops by Rose’s house, she finds that not only was the house broken into – so was Rose’s head.
Now Cissy is once again hip-deep in a murder investigation, but with the added aggravation of providing a temporary home for Rose’s untrained and obnoxious chihuahua Paco. Both identifying the killer and finding a permanent home for this awful little dog seem like impossible tasks.”
And there you have it – coming soon, to an e-reader near you!
