I’ve been diligently writing this year and I have a lot to show for it. The prequel to my River City Mysteries, Your Jig is Up came out just this week. Here’s the cover.
The story is a stand alone mystery, but it also explains how Becca, the main character in my series, ends up living with her Granddad and his cranky tuxedo cat Higgins. And how she ends up working for the psychiatric group of Daley & Palmer here in Richmond, VA. But she also gets involved with a murder. Here’s a little blurb about the story.
Join Becca Reynolds in Your Jig is Up as she starts her life over after a nasty divorce and inadvertently launches her career as an amateur detective in this prequel to the River City Mystery series.
A new life. A first job. And an unexpected death at that job. Is it an accident or is it murder? When things don’t add up and a seemingly innocent person is charged with the death, Becca appoints herself the unofficial investigator. Can she unmask a killer before he or she strikes again?
Find out in the novella that started the series. Join Becca, Granddad and Higgins in a new humorous cozy mystery.
After writing the book, I decided to give it away to newsletter subscribers as my way to say thank you for supporting my writing endeavors. If you’d like your FREE copy, simply sign up for the newsletter here at katjorgensenauthor.com. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
This week I will be releasing the third book in the series, Your Lights are Out. Just waiting for official approval from the retailers. Here’s the cover for that book.
And a little about what the book is about.
Hohoho! It’s Becca Reynolds’ first Christmas at the psychiatric firm of Daley & Palmer. To cheer up the clients, as well as herself, she has decorated the office for the season complete with a fully festive tree.
But when she discovers one of the doctors dead under the tree with a string of holiday mini-lights tightly encircling the unlucky therapist’s neck and the other end peacefully resting between her Granddad’s cranky cat’s paws, she knows it’s up to her to investigate yet another murder tied to the hapless firm.
Surely Higgins isn’t responsible for the death? But who is?
Can Becca solve the case and bring the killer to justice?
Or will it be a blue, blue Christmas in River City?
I have to say that I am making very good use of my pandemic days. I am so very thankful that I was able to return to my writing before all of this started. My days are busier than ever. And I’m happy with my writing.
