May means Mystery all month long here at Annie Acorn Publishing LLC! Join us each week as we explore the many mystery offerings available. This week, we’re highlighting the Niki Edgar Mystery series by Author Denise Hays including first mystery novel Niki Knows the Dirt (Niki Edgar Mysteries Book 1) and her second, Monkey Business (Niki Edgar Mysteries Book 2).

In Niki Knows the Dirt we’re introduced to an interesting, humorous and cunning woman, main character Niki Edgar. She has a unique gift perfectly suited to a little detective work and when Sheriff Jason Savage calls her to a murder scene, she arrives unaware the prime suspect is none other than her ex-husband, DeWayne’s girlfriend, Cybil. She finds out when she smells Cybil in the murder victim’s closet.

Smells her? Yes! Niki suffers from hyperosmia, a medical condition that causes her to possess a superhuman ability to smell. As you can imagine, life takes on a certain intensity for hyperosmics.

Life gets complicated when the hunky sheriff and the ex-husband she’s not quite over ask Niki to help prove Cybil’s innocence. She reluctantly agrees, then spends a horrible few days vacillating between trying to prove Cybil’s innocence and hoping to find she did, in fact, murder her husband.

A fun story filled with hilarious situations, Niki Knows the Dirt is the book to take to the beach or curl up with on a rainy afternoon. First in the Niki Edgar Mystery series, Niki Knows the Dirt introduces sassy, sexy, lovable hyperosmic Niki Edgar, the men in her life, and the trouble she can’t seem to stay out of. A first person narrative, Niki’s quirky personality and penchant for embarrassing herself will keep you wanting to know what happens next!

The hilarity continues in Denise Hays’s second novel, Monkey Business, when Niki Edgar takes her dream vacation to Costa Rica and arrives ready to rest, relax, and recuperate from a harrowing couple of years, in which she lost her husband and almost lost her life. But trouble seems to have traveled with her, and she winds up spending her much needed vacation sniffing out danger, as she vows to find whoever murdered…well, I won’t tell you that part. Denise Hays’s latest mystery will make you laugh and make you cry, often at the same time, as our favorite hyperosmic unwittingly gets involved in a little Monkey Business.

Happy May Mystery Reading!

May Means Mystery! Chloe Carstairs Mysteries Series

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May means Mystery all month long here at Annie Acorn Publishing LLC! Join us each week as we explore the many mystery offering available. This week, we’re highlighting author Billie Thomas’s Murder on the First Day of Christmas, and Murder in a Two-Seater, first and second novels in her Chloe Carstairs Mysteries series.

In her first novel, Murder on the First Day of Christmas, Ms. Thomas introduces us to her mystery solving duo, a mother – daughter team of interior designers. These two take their interior decorating assignments seriously, while still exhibiting all the usual mother/daughter angst that many of us have experienced ourselves. The right mix of humor and southern charm blend together to help these two solve the whatever mysterious and murderous situation confronts them.

It’s beginning to look a lot like murder.

Finding a severed hand at a client’s house might throw lesser decorators off their games. But Chloe Carstairs and her mother, Amanda, won’t let a little thing like murder keep them from decking the halls. With a body under the partridge’s pear tree and a dead Santa in a sleigh, they have to crack the case before the killer strikes again – this time much too close to home.

Filled with laugh-out-loud humor, romance and a delightfully difficult mother-daughter relationship, this new series from Billie Thomas offers a fast-paced caper as these two southern ladies try to keep their very merry Christmas from turning into the Noel from hell.

Her second novel, Murder in a Two-Seater, the design team continues their decorating and detective work.  In this mystery, a cheating wife in a classic car drives someone to murder.

Interior decorators turned amateur investigators, Chloe and Amanda Carstairs have spent the summer transforming their client’s creepy old castle into a luxury hotel. But before the first guest checks in, the owner’s wife checks out – with the help of a bullet to the head.

When Chloe’s dad is accused of the crime, there’s no time for the ladies to drown their sorrows in the hotel’s mini bar. Instead, they have to contend with a sneaky blackmailer, an unsolved murder from the past, and a cunning killer with nothing to lose.

The second Chloe Carstairs Mystery is filled with the same clever twists and hilarious mother-daughter relationship that made Murder on the First Day of Christmas such a fun, fast-paced read for an appreciative readership. The mystery will keep you guessing, but as any good decorator will tell you, even a beautiful setting can’t hide the ugly truth.

Happy May Mysteries Reading!

May means Mystery all month long here at Annie Acorn Publishing LLC! Join us each week as we explore the many mystery offering available. First up, we have our very own Annie Acorn’s mystery novel, Chocolate Can Kill, first in the Emily Harris Mysteries series.

Chocolate always makes things better, or so Emily Harris believes until even a dozen boxes of her favorite chocolates can’t put her world back together.

If this weren’t enough her lawyer husband begins to act strangely, her oldest son brings a tramp home as his girlfriend, and two friends are murdered. Simple sayings from her childhood thread their way through her thoughts as she struggles to identify the common denominator, even as she is confined to her home, munching on chocolates. Filled with the warm southern ambience and gentle humor that author, Annie Acorn, has made famous, you won’t want to miss this cliffhanger!

In addition to this full-length novel, Annie also has other published works in this genre including Murder With My Darling (Bonnie Lou Mysteries Book 1) a murder mystery with southern charm and a large dose of humor.

Missing County, Tennessee’s, residents are all atwitter. Having been in everyone’s way all of his life, Johnny Brown has been murdered, and his body has been dumped in the county’s best fishing hole.

Never fear. Bonnie Lou Ladner, owner of the area’s premier beauty shop, is hot on the trail, unbeknownst to Missing County’s handsome sheriff! Quickly patting down her bouffant, she is committed to tracking down the murderer before the area’s all important deer hunting season opens in two days.

WARNING: Don’t start reading this book as you’re going to bed. Your partner won’t appreciate your keeping them awake with your laughter! Bonnie Lou is a hoot!

April is Non-Fiction Month at AAPub! Overcoming Cover Design Issues

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of our loyal Annie Acorn Publishing LLC readers know we love to write great fiction. In addition, we offer some wonderful choices in the category of non-fiction as well. All April long, AAPub wishes to highlight for you some of our outstanding non-fiction offerings.

For the last two non-fiction posts, we’re highlighting two major professional challenges that we as writers may face at one time or another in our careers. This week, the issue we’d like to deal with is all things associated with cover design.  Cover Design and YOU!: Dos, Don’ts and Choices (Writing and YOU Book 1) written by our very own Annie Acorn and award-winning cover designer, graphic artist and author Angel Nichols will lead you to success. Enjoy this glimpse into their own professional cover design journey together.

On a crisp fall day in 2011, an older, successful author and publisher – desperate for a book cover design, once burnt but still hopeful – picked up her phone and called a young, unproven graphic designer, who had demonstrated an amazing talent. Two hours later, they had reached the decision that would dramatically affect both of their careers, indeed their lives, forever. Author and illustrator would now forge a relationship that has produced over one hundred successful book launches, top sales rankings, and award-winning book covers.

How did they do it? What were the design tools upon which they relied?

With no holds barred, internationally beloved author and boutique publisher Annie Acorn and her company’s exclusive graphic designer Angel Nichols, also an internationally known author and member of From Womens’ Pens, share their story and their secrets within these pages in an easy-to-read format, complete with a touch of humor.

The good, the bad, the dos, the don’ts, the choices, the technical tools needed, the emotional ups and downs, the art of graphic design communication, the requirements for a great cover, and even the resources you will need to create one of your own – all their unique insights and collective knowledge have been included for your benefit.

Are you an indie author struggling to find that elusive bond with a professional cover artist? An illustrator trying to break onto the professional scene? A publisher juggling both at the same time? Or even a group of authors working on a special project?

Then this is the one, fact-filled book that you will want to carry as you embark on your own journey towards either the creation of or contracting for a fabulous book cover that will ensure the success of your book publishing endeavor.

Come for the invaluable information. Stay for the fun. With these tools in your hands, may your efforts be as well-rewarded as theirs have been!

Happy Non-fiction Reading!

April is Non-Fiction Month at AAPub! Overcoming Personal Challenges

AAP-Logo100

All of our loyal Annie Acorn Publishing LLC readers know we love to write great fiction. In addition, we also offer some wonderful choices in the category of non-fiction as well. All April long, AAPub wishes to highlight for you some of our outstanding non-fiction offerings.

This week, we’re putting the spotlight on publications to help our readers overcome personal challenges in their lives. One universal battle we all may face at one time or another is the desire for a healthier body, and many times this involves losing weight.

Easier said than done, right?

No problem.  In A Tired Older Woman: Loses Weight and Keeps it Off! by our very own Annie Acorn, we provide you with the solution. Dieting again? Losing the same ten pounds over and over? Here’s your answer!

Have you ever lost weight only to gain it all back? Have you ever yo-yoed up and down on the scales? Have you ever dealt with the dreaded plateaus? Then you are among friends. Anyone can lose a few pounds. Many of us already have. The difference is that I, Annie Acorn, am no longer like you. Several years ago, I lost more than 50 pounds, and I have maintained that weight loss for over 5 years – simply, easily, and without giving it much thought. On the pages of A Tired Older Woman: Loses Weight and Keeps It Off! I will share my secrets with you!

Secondly, spotlighted this week, is an offering by From Gents’ Pen’s author D. A. Grady, So You’ve Lost a Limb.

In early spring of 2006, beloved From Gents’ Pens author D. A. Grady’s life changed forever, when his Chevy pickup connected with a metal guard rail on highway U.S. 290, between Austin and Houston. When EMTs arrived on the scene and placed him into their Medevac helicopter, his left leg from below the knee remained behind in his truck, still in his boot.

Now faced with such issues as dealing with a prosthesis, relearning how to walk, handling phantom pain and even something as simple as taking a shower, he brought to the situation the same courage, determination and ingenuity that had held him in good stead through a long life.

Soon approached by the hospital’s trauma team and asked to share his experiences with others, he has counseled amputees ranging from Wounded Warriors to those who chanced to stand behind him in the checkout lane at his local Walmart and, in some cases, fellow amputees he met on the street.

Now he has put his experiences, solutions, and suggestions into words that can be passed on to others who can benefit from his experiences, in a uniquely conversational style that allows this fact-filled offering to seem as if it’s a conversation among friends.

If you’re an amputee yourself, a caregiver of an amputee or a friend of one, the information contained in this book will be helpful to you as you chart your new course through the growing world of amputeeism.

Happy Non-Fiction Reading!

Catch the “madness” by delving into our varied selection of reading material, as this week, we highlight our Mysteries collection. In center stage we have our own Annie Acorn’s full-length, cozy mystery novel Chocolate Can Kill. 

Chocolate always makes things better, or so Emily Harris believes until even a dozen boxes of her favorite chocolates can’t put her world back together. Returning home from a trip to New Orleans, she is pushed down the airport’s arrival escalator, and despite evidence to the contrary, she believes the push was deliberate. If this weren’t enough her lawyer husband begins to act strangely, her oldest son brings a tramp home as his girlfriend, and two friends are murdered. Simple sayings from her childhood thread their way through her thoughts as she struggles to identify the common denominator, even as she is confined to her home, munching on chocolates.

Filled with the warm southern ambiance and gentle humor that author, Annie Acorn, has made famous, you won’t want to miss this cliffhanger!

Newsprint-to-Footprints_2Next, for your March reading pleasure, we highlight cozy mystery author Elaine Orr’s mysteries. Start with her novel From Newsprint to Footprints, the first offering in her River’s Edge Cozy Mystery series.

“You’re fired!” Grouchy news publisher Hal Morris sends reporter Melanie Perkins packing for taking too many photos of flowers.

Panicked at being unemployed, she lands a job as a landscaper, but an ugly surprise greets her on her first day. A pile of mulch, a tangerine, and a stolen hoe cast suspicion on Melanie.

Demise-of-a-Devious-Neighbor_16x25_finalMelanie’s efforts to find a murderer instead put a target on her back. Some of the aim is coming from law enforcement, but they aren’t the ones who want to silence her permanently. Life along the Des Moines River in Iowa can be peaceful, but a murderer has no problem disturbing her tranquility.

In this, the first novel in beloved cozy mystery writer Elaine Orr’s new River’s Edge series, the author once again offers humor, believable characters and tight prose as she carries the reader to an exciting climax. Those who follow her Jolie Gentil series will find themselves right at home.

You won’t want to miss this one or her second offering in the series Demise of a Devious Neighbor.

Murder-on-the-First16x25Lastly, we suggest Murder on the First Day of Christmas, first full-length, humorous cozy by Billie Thomas in her Chloe Carstairs Mysteries series.

It’s beginning to look a lot like murder.

Finding a severed hand at a client’s house might throw lesser decorators off their games. But Chloe Carstairs and her mother, Amanda, won’t let a little thing like murder keep them from decking the halls. With a body under the partridge’s pear tree and a dead Santa in a sleigh, they have to crack the case before the killer strikes again – this time much too close to home.

Filled with laugh-out-loud humor, romance and a delightfully difficult mother-daughter relationship, this new series from Billie Thomas offers a fast-paced caper as these two southern ladies try to keep their very merry Christmas from turning into the Noel from hell.

Murder-in-a-Two-Seater_revised-16x25Her second mystery novel Murder in a Two-Seater continues the series.

A cheating wife in a classic car drives someone to murder.

Interior decorators turned amateur investigators, Chloe and Amanda Carstairs have spent the summer transforming their client’s creepy old castle into a luxury hotel. But before the first guest checks in, the owner’s wife checks out – with the help of a bullet to the head.

When Chloe’s dad is accused of the crime, there’s no time for the ladies to drown their sorrows in the hotel’s mini bar. Instead, they have to contend with a sneaky blackmailer, an unsolved murder from the past, and a cunning killer with nothing to lose.

The second Chloe Carstairs Mystery is filled with the same clever twists and hilarious mother-daughter relationship that made Murder on the First Day of Christmas such a fun, fast-paced read for an appreciative readership. The mystery will keep you guessing, but as any good decorator will tell you, even a beautiful setting can’t hide the ugly truth.

Catch the “madness” by delving into our varied selection of reading material, as this week we highlight our Series collection. In center stage we have our Captain’s Point Stories series by Charlotte Kent. Charlotte Kent is the pseudonym used by Annie Acorn and Juliette Hill when writing their collaborative contemporary romantic/women’s fiction/family saga series Captain’s Point Stories. 

Our Captain’s Point series includes four full length novels, A Clue for Adrianna, A Man for Susan, Love’s Journey and Love’s Surprise. In addition to our novel, we also have a Boxed Set, numberous novelette’s and novellas as well as short stories rounding out the series.

Next, we have Annie Acorn’s contemporary romantic series Luna Lake Cabins which inclues Books, Novellas, Novelettes, and Shorts. The-First-Year_16x25

Where can you find love as you walk along a lake’s shore, mystery in the woods and hidden caves that surround you, and a warm welcome upon arrival? Within the carefully crafted novellas and novelettes gathered for your enjoyment in Luna Lake Cabins – The First Year by beloved, internationally read author Annie Acorn.

Hop into your car, travel north through Tennessee into the Cumberland Mountains, and you will find Luna Lake and the Cabins just west of Cove Lake. Checking in? You may be greeted with a plate of fresh-baked, chocolate chip cookies, and then prepare to laugh, cry, and be surprised as you experience first kisses, lifetime commitments, and second chances that fill you with joy.

Based upon Annie’s memories of time spent at Coleman Lake, Georgia, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and the Cumberland Mountains through which she hiked and camped as a girl, you will soon discover within these stories that everything is possible and anything can happen at Luna Lake Cabins, where the magic of love rules.

To-Catch-A-Grinch_16x25Finally, highlighted for your March reading selections is our new series Holly & Ivy Mysteries by award-winning cover artist and author Angel Nichols. Check out her first story To Catch a Grinch.

When most people contemplate Christmas, they think of family time, baking gingerbread with Grandma, and stringing those forever-tangled lights on the tree. For Lieutenant Patrick Holling, Christmas means something entirely different, though.

So begins the first entry in the Holly & Ivy mystery series from the internationally beloved, From Women’s Pens author, noted for her strong characters, biting humor, and intricate plots lines.

Demoted and transferred to New Jersey PD’s own version of Timbuktu – the Holiday Crimes Unit, where every crime that correlates to a holiday is sent to die, Holling finds himself saddled with an unwanted partner, Detective Julian Ives, who has transferred to the HCU under mysterious circumstances.

Follow them as they unravel each holiday crime that arises. More stories are in the work for this engaging series!

Happy March Series Reading!
