Welcome, Sujata! After Camp Grandma winds up, let's get together for lunch!

Hank Phillippi Ryan

SO great to see you, Sujata! And that auction package (whew!) sounds like a wonderful memory-maker!

And if you have a second--that five-pack is a terrific idea. How did that happen?

Hi Ladies--thanks for letting me crash your excellent daily comment. Hank, Pia and I are reading "The Wrong Girl" aloud together, two chapters every night. We LOVE the story and characters.
To answer your question about the 5-book bundle, KILLLER FEMMES, I had the idea to put something together and went straight to Libby, our former SINC president and an Edgar winner who's helped me quite a bit with social media/publishing. We invited authors who were interested. It works very well if you have the electronic copyrights to your first or a very early series book. I think it's great for authors to be able to have both traditional published books and some self-published books.

Elaine Viets

I used to go to Camp Grandma, too, Marcia. My parents would send all four of us to stay with my grandmother. But for some reason, my parent thought it was THEIR vacation.

Marcia Talley

Elaine, I WISH it were my daughter, Sarah's vacation, but she is down in Chesapeake, VA dealing with a total kitchen floor rip up and replacement because of a leak in a) ice maker of fridge and b) dishwasher that was slow and went undetected until mold resulted. Ugh! They've had huge drying fans running 24/7 for the past week. Then (during this heat wave, too!) her air conditioner gave up the ghost. All this in a house less than 5 years old. I'm driving down with one child on Saturday and trading her for two more. LOL.

Marcia Talley

Sujata, I love the book bundle idea. I've seen it with a single author and short stories, also Megapacks of short stories by various authors, but how "outside the box" to think of boxing novels by different authors as ebooks according to a theme. Clever!

Kathryn Johnson

This is such a cool idea! I love the international feel of this boxed set. For me, no pool in sight this summer, but I do love spending time in my garden. In this heat, it just drinks up the water. So far--peas a-plenty, tomatoes getting bigger, squash struggling...but all of it a lovely green break between writing spells. ;-)

Sujata Massey

Hi Kathryn--
My garden is weeds. One of these years I'm going to retire from writing in order to fix up my weedy almost-Acre. I'm amazed you can manage both.

Marcia Talley

Sujata, I just went online and saw that Killer Femmes is just 99 cents on Amazon Kindle. What a deal!! I just downloaded it -- five books for the price of one. Whoot!

sujata massey

Thanks Marcia. Don't forget to leave a review--tee hee. I downloaded it on my Nook and am copying it onto Pia's Nook so we can both read good stuff on our weekend trip.

I wish everyone a lazy lovely weekend.

Kim Kash

Thanks for this, Sujata! You captured that soft, magical quality about being outside very early in the day, especially when the weather is hot. Those deep, gracious Baltimore front porches are heavenly on a summer morning. Maryland Science Center? Nah. Your porch sounds like the better choice.
