Celebrating a mistake?

Party? Did Someone say PARTY?
Nope! Just kicking off the month long party for 
An Error In Judgment

To celebrate, I've reduced the price on Levels of Deception to .99

Whoo Hoo!!!

You can find it on Amazon, Smashwords, (where you can download the format of choice for the e-reader of choice), and as soon as the electronics grind it all out the e-book will be available all over the place for .99.

I LOVE celebrating the release of a new book! Mine or anyone else's. It's a new adventure waiting, an invitation to laugh, cry, gasp, shiver and love -- and it's a new friend who, once read, will wait patiently for you to return, or be satisfied with a cozy spot in your memory.

If you haven't had a look at Levels Of Deception yet, here's a brief synopsis -- I should probably warn you … the heat turns up between Thea and Paul. Like one reader mentioned, "it's nail-biting romantic drama" added to a mystery that twist, turns and ultimately surprises!

Levels of Deception
The second in the Thea Campbell Mystery Series

The murder of a professor in the basement of the Seattle's Burke Museum is haunting Thea, and not just because the man was her absent boy friend Paul's colleague. Both men have been implicated in the theft of valuable fossils from the museum and Paul not only refuses to discuss any of it with Thea, but warns her to butt out.

Unwilling to see him framed for crimes he didn't commit, Thea launches her own investigation. When an attempt on her life lands her in the hospital. Everyone, including Paul, insists she run to his protection at his dig site in Montana.

But what she finds there is far from a refuge.

The levels of deception are more personal and extend farther than she could have imagined.

The price of her pursuit of truth will be blood.

And Now......

Is she reading the new Thea Campbell Mystery?

An Error in Judgment

The third in the Thea Campbell Mystery Series

During the awards ceremony at the Puget Sound Dressage Society's annual banquet dressage judge Sig Paalmann collapses and dies. The wealthy man leaves his bride of two months -- Thea's estranged friend, Andrea -- and enigmatic last words.

Thea's initial plan to reestablish her friendship with Andrea, despite the arrogant man she married, grows into resolve to support her through the crisis. But Andrea needs more than support when her husband's death is deemed murder and she is arrested.

With boyfriend Paul Hudson's help, Thea's digs in to investigate only to discover complications far worse than either had anticipated. Andrea is pregnant and in fragile health, warring business partners jockey for control, slighted family members turn ruthless, and Thea and Paul become pawns in a desperate struggle for money and power. But, the situation, already critical, takes an even more personal twist with the arrival of an old nemesis -- a man capable of orchestrating not only Sig's death but the grave danger stalking Andrea, Thea and Paul.


  1. These books sound like they are right up my alley. I must find out if they're in print or will I really have to make good on my vows to purchase a Nook!

  2. Yes, both books are available in trade paperback versions as well as ebook. You can order through Amazon, or your bookstore can get them (they're distributed through Baker & Taylor). Libraries should also be able to get their hands on copies.

  3. Oh, these sound awesome. I'll have to check them out. :)

  4. By all means, Madeline! And spread the word!

  5. This is so cool! I'd like to celebrate with you on the release of the 3rd in the series, Susan! Congratulations !:)

  6. I'll have to get my hands on the paperback. No PC or Kindle means the ebooks aren't an option, but I particularly like the Levels of Deception blurb.

  7. Thanks, Len! We'll raise a glass of cyber-champagne together!

    And thank you, too, William! Both books are available in trade paperback through Amazon, and elsewhere -- including your local bookstore (who should be able to order a copy for you)

  8. Eeep...Now that is a yellow cover. Michael Whelan once wrote that he hated using yellow on the cover of a book as it is often too strong.

  9. While I can't say I'd wear that shade of yellow, drive a car that color or (horrors) paint my house that shade, I can tell you it stands out. In a time when you have to juggle flaming swords just to get people's attention, it's a good option (in my opinion). Especially for an unknown author!

  10. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I'm trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog.
    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
    Review my weblog pimples overnight

  11. Hi there! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or
    plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Thanks!
