Hello Mystery Readers,

White Tombs Front Cover 72dpi jpg I wanted to let you know that the e-book version of my first novel in the John Santana series, White Tombs, will be available for free on Amazon from April 3 to April 7. That's right! A free download for your Kindle, I-pad, computer, etc. This is no April Fool's joke. Please let your friends and family members know about the free download. This is an opportunity for those who might not have read the novel to learn more about what happened to Santana and his family when he was sixteen and still living in Colombia, and what led to his career as a homicide detective in St. Paul.

Bone Shadows, the fourth and latest book in the series has been chosen by Reader Views and Rebecca's Reads as Best Mystery of 2102. Rebecca's Reads has honored the novel with their 2012 Best Fiction award as well. Bone Shadows has also been selected as a finalist for the 2012 Best Book of the Year award from Foreword Reviews. The winner will be announced June 28 at the American Library Association conference in Chicago.

This Saturday, April 6, I will be signing copies of my books at the St. Peter, MN Book Festival from 1-5 p.m. On April 10, I will be discussing Bad Weeds Never Die and how I research my police procedurals in Cannon Falls from 10-12 p.m. with the Citizens and Law Enforcement Partnership. That evening I will be discussing White Tombs at the Wildwood Library in Mahtomedi, MN starting at 7 p.m. I will be returning to the Lake Elmo Library in Lake Elmo, MN on April 18 from 6:30-7:30 as they honor local authors. Please check my website for additional details on these and other upcoming events.
If you haven't already done so, please feel free to LIKE my author Facebook page.

More details on the fifth Santana novel will soon be coming. Stay tuned!
