The Preorder Campaign is Finished!

Congratulations to the Winner!!

Everyone who enters the giveaway will receive a short story featuring Greer Larkin’s detective Oberlin Hurst specially written for this giveaway. A fun preview of some of the action to come in Her Dying Day!

One lucky reader will win this glorious swag pack!

Who Is Maud Dixon?, The Christie Affair, The Mysterious Affair at the Styles, Ray of F*cking Sunshine coffee mug, Converse sneaker key chain, 2 bookmarks, 1 signed bookplate.

One of the inspirations for Her Dying Day is the 1926 disappearance of Agatha Christie. She was eventually found, but I thought, “What if she hadn’t been found? What if she’d never been heard from again?” And the concept for Her Dying Day was born.

I specifically selected these three books because the first features the disappearance of an author, the second is a fictionalized story about Dame Christie’s disappearance, and the third introduces us to Hercule Poirot.

The coffee mug and Converse sneaker key chain give you a taste of June Masterson’s personality and fashion sense. (My own Converse shoe collection increased during the writing of this book.)

Aspiring filmmaker June Masterson has high hopes for her first documentary, the true story of the disappearance of famed mystery author Greer Larkin. June learned about the vanishing at age fourteen, locked down on her family’s isolated commune. Now, the deeper she digs into the project, the darker the story gets.

Everyone has a theory. Greer’s mother, Blanche, and her best friend, Rachel, believe that Greer’s fiancée, Jonathan, is the culprit. Greer’s agent is convinced that Greer committed suicide after a debilitating bout of writer’s block. And Jonathan claims it was either Greer’s controlling mother or Rachel, whose attachment to Greer went way beyond friendship.

In desperation, Rachel gives June a suitcase full of Greer’s most personal writings in hopes of finding proof against Jonathan. Then Rachel turns up dead. As June pores over Greer’s writings, she makes a devastating discovery that could finally reveal the truth about the author’s fate. But now, June finds herself in the sights of a killer who’ll stop at nothing to keep their darkest secret.
