First, the winners from last Monday’s blog: EVERYBODY who left a comment (see the names below)! I’m in a mellow mood, probably because it’s Sunday, I got to sing in the choir, and afterward I drove home in beautiful weather to the sounds of Mozart. Music brings out the best in me. Music has even served as my Muse on more than one occasion. The Sweetest Hallelujah is one of the most significant examples. Remember Joe’s harmonica, the Saint’s trumpet, Tiny Jim’s juke joint, Betty Jewel’s jazz singing and the lyrics of Li’l Rosie throughout the book? I wrote those lyrics. I even composed the music to Ain’t No Use Cryin’.
And then there’s Elvis. What fun I’ve had selecting just the right song from his list of hits to add to my sleuthing basset hound’s commentary throughout the Southern Cousins Mystery series. Sometimes when I’m writing, I take a music break, hop up from my desk and race off to the piano – an antique baby grand which was originally owned by a jazz musician – and belt out the blues or a few Broadway show tunes or even a jazzy gospel song.
My latest Southern Cousins Mystery, Elvis and the Buried Brides, is available now exclusively in Risky Brides, a multi-author collection. What fun to let Elvis romp through this bestsellers’ box set, rubbing elbows with Donna Fletcher’s sexy Celtic hero and great characters created by Vicki Hinze, Kathy Carmichael, Rita Herron, Kimberly Llewellyn, Tara Randel, Piper Bayard and Jay Holmes. Grab Risky Brides while you can. It’s a limited-time collection. When it’s gone, it’s gone.
Here are two links to the book:
