Maybe it’s the fresh three inches of snow blanketing my city with softness, but the world right now seems at peace. And I wanted to share something with you. This morning I was surprised to see my short mystery, Death of a Sad Face was on Apple’s list of Top Free historical mystery books. It gave me a mighty shock, as my character, Teo would say. This feeling of accomplishment, of peace blanketing the planet won’t last. My story will slip off the list faster than Jen Blood’s red fox disappears into the Maine woods. But for now, it’s nice to hold onto. Peace and happy new year.
