Who doesn’t love free things, right?? Well, the first free thing I’m want to tell you about is Not Quite Dead. It’s the first book in a quirky, funny, southern mystery (with non-scary ghosts!) and is also one of my very favorite things I’ve ever written. And it’s FREE everywhere except Barnes and Noble, who continues to love shooting themselves in the foot as far as what they’ll allow indie authors to do on their site. It’s $.99 there, so if you’re a Nook reader, I hope that’s not going to turn you away.

There are currently three books in the Lowcountry Mystery series, and although the mystery in each stands alone, the main character (Graciela) and her relationships spill over from book to book. I’ve decided that before the fourth book is released, I’m going to share a novella with you that offers some different points of view from the series and in general just deepens the stories and connections between characters.
The best part is, if you’re signed up for my newsletter you’ll be able to read the novella – Quite Curious – EARLY and for FREE. You’ll need to be signed up no later than June 1, since the first part of the novella will be released June 2.
Here’s the cover:
And the synopsis:
Graciela is hoping that, despite the reappearance of her father—who’s supposed to be dead—her life in Heron Creek might be about the calm down.
Her boyfriend’s mother has other ideas, ones that include getting to know her son’s new squeeze. The proposition makes Beau nervous for more than one reason, a couple of which would be news to Gracie.
Amelia’s therapy appears to be going well, so that’s working in Gracie’s favor, but with trouble brewing in Will and Mel’s marriage, the moonshiners getting more involved in Heron Creek affairs instead of less, and Leo’s sister Lindsay returning from her stint in the state pen, settled isn’t the best word to describe life in the small town.
Gracie is starting to think that maybe seeing ghosts is the least complicated thing about her…and she’s probably right.
Includes POVs from Beau, Will, Leo, Amelia, and Clete.
If you know you’re going to want the final product all together on your device you can preorder it from Amazon or iBooks.
You can also add it to Goodreads!
I’m 53 and enjoyed Gracie Harper’s antics can’t wait for more!
Should I read “Not Quite True” before the novella? Have read the first 2 in the Lowcountry series, and enjoyed them both immensely.
You definitely can read the novella without reading NQT, but you might miss a few references. 🙂
Just finished “Not Quite True” and loved it! Can’t wait to read the novella and the next book in the series!
Yay!! Thanks so much for reading and stopping by to say you’re enjoying it!!
