Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, makes a writer's heart flutter more than the announcement of the release of a new book! So you can imagine how I feel when i share the news of my participation in anthology which combines two of my favorite things: mystery and wine! 50 Shades of Cabernet is scheduled to release on March 20, 2017, in hardcover, trade paperback and electronic versions. Here is a little bit about our book:
APPELLATION—What it’s all about
In vino mysterium is the theme for this collection of short stories, each blending a baffling mystery and a glass (or more) of cabernet. When eighteen mystery writers combine their talents, the result is the perfect “flight” of stories that range from the light-bodied puzzles to sparkling cozy mysteries to darker, heavier tales of deceit and murder. While cabernet is the featured wine, this anthology will appeal to connoisseurs of all varietals—in both wine preference and mystery style.
