Book Launch Party Day #6

6 Mar

Day #6 of the Launch Party for A Few Dead Men! I don’t know about you, but I’m giddy and bloated from all the great food and fun! Isn’t that what parties are for?

If you haven’t gotten the hang of the games in the right margin, Hang the Dead Man or Test Your Detective Skills, don’t worry, you still have lots of time to practice.

Click for the recipe!

Today I’m featuring Sweet Potato Fries, the perfect recipe for turning a vegetable that’s very good for you into a deep fried wonder. My recipe isn’t the deep fried kind, since I don’t have a deep fryer, but if you do, go for it! These are served with curry honey mayo. Yummy!

By commenting on this blog below, you will win a FREE copy of A Few Dead Men. Everyone who comments will receive a coupon code at the end of the week (March 8th). If you like what you read, post a review on Goodreads, Amazon or the website of your choice anytime and win another FREE copy of any Chick Dick Mystery!

A Few Dead Men – Setting: Wolfville

Wolfville's Main Street

Originally known as Mud Creek, the Town of Wolfville got its name in 1830 when two granddaughters of Judge Elisha DeWolfe convinced their postmaster uncle that a more suitable name was needed. The villagers chose the name of Wolfville for their town. It’s a place of beautiful elm trees, manicured lawns, and grand century old homes.

Wolfville is located near the Fundy shore, about 60 miles northwest of Halifax, and the place where Darcy grew up. It’s a university town, and every fall it’s invaded by over three thousand students attending Acadia University, Wolfville’s claim to fame. I was one of those students, about a million years ago. Darcy also attended, earning herself a degree in English Literature.

Excerpt:  A Few Dead Men

“Darcy and Isabel slipped out the front door and headed down the hill, past the apple trees dripping pink and white blossoms. The air was filled with the smell of freshly cut grass and the distant whine of a lawn mower. Turning right, Main Street unfolded before them, sleepy and green, thanks to a bower of large maples that graced the front of the United Baptist Church.

“It’s my favorite time of year,” Darcy said. “Convocation is over, and we have our town back.”

“This place never really changes, does it?”

“That’s why I love it so much. It doesn’t change.””

Today I’m a guest blogger over at Limebird Writers, a wonderful team from the UK and USA whose motto is ‘Let Your Creativity Fly’. I’ll be blogging my theories regarding the question: How do Dead Men become dead

Tomorrow I’ll be visiting author Stacy Jensen, http://stacysjensen.blogspot.com, who writes picture books and has a memoir-in-progress. I’ll blog about the question: Are there more Dead Men than Live Men? (I sure hope not!)

Check out my home page for a full itinerary of my month long Blog Tour. Hope to see you tomorrow!

    Yum, sweet potato fries, we need to add them to our #snackbook! We both got English degrees, sounds like we have a lot in common with Darcy and you! 😉

      Hey, that’s cool! You should add the deep fried pepperoni, too. It’s amazing. Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh Wolfville. The scene of many happy university days. I still remember the postal code -BOP 1X0
    And it doesn’t really change.
