And Now for Some BSP: Blatant Self-Promotion

My latest release, The House on Candlewick Lane, is on sale for 99¢ and I’m trying to spread the word far and wide. If you’ve read the book, thank you very much. If you’ve read the book and left a review, you are awesome.

And if you haven’t read the book, this is your chance!!

Here’s a quick summary of the novel:

It is every parent’s worst nightmare. Greer Dobbins’ daughter has been kidnapped—and spirited across the Atlantic to a hiding place in Scotland. Greer will do anything to find her, but the streets of Edinburgh hide a thousand secrets—including some she’d rather not face.

Art historian Dr. Greer Dobbins thought her ex-husband, Neill, had his gambling addiction under control. But in fact he was spiraling deeper and deeper into debt. When a group of shady lenders threatens to harm the divorced couple’s five-year-old daughter if he doesn’t pay up, a desperate Neill abducts the girl and flees to his native Scotland. Though the trail seems cold, Greer refuses to give up and embarks on a frantic search through the medieval alleys of Edinburgh—a city as beguiling as it is dangerous. But as the nightmare thickens with cryptic messages and a mysterious attack, Greer herself will become a target, along with everyone she holds dear.

Doesn’t that sound like something you want to read TODAY?!

Cover Reveal!

If you’ve visited my website in the past week or so (http://www.amymreade.com), you’ve already seen the cover for my new novel, The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor.

But if you haven’t, here it is!

The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor_ebook cover

I would make the picture bigger if only I could figure out how to do it.

The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor is set outside Charleston, South Carolina. It’s the story of Carleigh Warner, a specialist in building restoration who takes a job at an antebellum plantation that belongs to the family of an old college friend. Carleigh leaves Chicago with her daughter, Lucy, and arrives in South Carolina ready to begin work, but finds that members of the Peppernell family are at odds over the future of the plantation. The owner wants to change her will to provide for the management of the property by the state of South Carolina upon her death. But there are others who think the family would stand to benefit much more if the plantation were turned into a tourist destination and managed by an investment group.

Though Carleigh doesn’t want to get involved, emotions run high at Peppernell Manor and she is forced to take sides in the battle over the preservation of the manor and its property. And to make matters worse, someone doesn’t want Carleigh around. As violence visits the South Carolina plantation, Carleigh is left wondering whether she should go back to Chicago for her own, and Lucy’s, safety, or stay in the Lowcountry to make a new life for herself and her little girl.

Shameless plug: The Ghosts of Peppernell Manor is available for pre-order on Amazon. It’s not yet available for pre-order as a paperback, but only in ebook form. Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Ghosts-Peppernell-Manor-Amy-Reade-ebook/dp/B00OEW5SR0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416257542&sr=8-1&keywords=ghosts+of+peppernell+manor.

Pre-orders are important to authors and publishers, so if you’d like to read the ebook, please consider pre-ordering it! It comes out in April, 2015.

This has been a big week for me. I’ll be doing three virtual book tours over the next month or so, and I’ve been busy writing guest blog posts, answering interview questions, and choosing excerpts from my novel, Secrets of Hallstead House, that don’t contain any spoilers.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting much more often here on my own blog to let you all know where I’ll be online so you can visit if you’d like. There will be several giveaways of my book, so you might want to check out those sites periodically.

For today, allow me some shameless self-promotion as I announce that Secrets of Hallstead House is now available in paperback! You can find it online at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Hallstead-House-Amy-Reade/dp/1601833008/ref=sr_1_1_title_1_pap?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1404719479&sr=1-1&keywords=secrets+of+hallstead+house) and Barnes and Noble (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/secrets-of-hallstead-house-amy-reade/1118882335?ean=9781601833006).

Long links, I know.

The ebook comes out on July 17th, about a week and a half from now.

I’ll close by thanking my family and friends who have been so supportive of me while I write and promote my book. I’d also like to thank all the people who have visited my blog, visited my website, or followed me on Facebook or Twitter. I appreciate each and every one of you!

Until next time,

Amy
