If you love young adult mysteries with a hint of romance, you’ve come to the right place! I write the Dani Spevak Mystery Series. The first two books, Codename: Dancer and Pointe of No Return, are out now in paperback, ebook, and audio. The third book, Pas De Death, is now available in paperback and ebook!
No, I don’t make it a habit to kill off book bloggers. LOL! But last year I participated in Brenda Novak’s annual charity auction to raise money to cure diabetes. I auctioned off naming rights to the murder victim … and Jen wanted me to use her name!
It’s all in good fun, and all for a good cause. Jen is graciously offering to help me out with promotion for the book, and also to raise awareness of this disease. She’ll be launching the “sneak peak” of the first chapter of Pas de Death by releasing the first chapter on her blog on February 22, 2013!
BONUS: If you’ve ever wanted to name the murder victim in a book, now you can do it, too! (No, you don’t have to use your own name like Jen did — can be any name.) I’m auctioning off naming rights again this year! Help us break the $2 million mark and find a cure for diabetes.
