Since You Asked and a Giveaway

Judith who post at 11:54 am is the winner of my books! Thanks for all of your lovely comments!

There is some news that is so exciting to share and some you don’t want to at all. This is one of those posts I wish I didn’t have to write, but I’ve had lots of readers reaching out.

I’m sorry to say that Kensington didn’t renew my contract to write more Chloe Jackson Sea Glass Saloon mysteries. I feel so lucky to have been able to write four of them! Since I wasn’t sure what would happen when I turned in the fourth book, I tried to make sure Chloe’s life was in an upward trajectory!

What’s ahead may have some spoiler alerts if you haven’t read the series, but I wanted to let you know where I think the characters are, now, in this moment.

Chloe is so happy with Rip and yes, I’m sure an engagement is in the future. She is still getting into shenanigans with Ann Williams. There’s a certain someone she is hoping will return and face what must be faced. Chloe and Vivi are the most supportive of friends and love each other dearly. Chloe is taking over more and more responsibilities at the Sea Glass Saloon.

Vivi is engaged to Wade Thomas! They are taking time off to travel and enjoy each other.

Joaquín has a complication in his life. He’s been asked to be a judge of a dancing show filming in Los Angeles. The pay is amazing and would set him and Michael up for a good long time. But he hasn’t told Michael or Chloe about the offer yet!

Ann Williams is still fixing things for people, but can she fix things with Deputy Biffle? They are still circling each other and I’m hoping they will find a way to be together.

The rest of the good people of Emerald Cove are working hard and playing hard. They are all happy that the murder rate is down!

Thanks to all of you who have read these books and loved them. I’ve so enjoyed hearing from so many of you! I loved writing them and wished I had better news.

Readers: I don’t want to leave things on a sad note, so I’ll give away a set of the Sea Glass Saloon mysteries to someone who leaves a comment!

  1. I am sorry to hear that. I thoroughly enjoyed them and was looking forward to more. I also really liked your garage sale mysteries, so I look forward to reading your next series that you write.

  2. Definitely not news I wanted to hear! I have very much enjoyed both of your series, and think you have a real talent for developing your characters. Please keep all of your fans informed as to future endeavors!

  3. There are plenty of publushers. Stop dealing with Kensington who has flushed your 2 series. Get one who wants to work with you! Kensington doesn’t deserve you.

  4. This is such sad news. I absolutely love both of your series and always look forward to the next book. In fact, your books leap over the long line of books in my queue to be read asap. Looking forward to your next great series

  5. I tried earlier to leave a comment but it seems to have gone missing. All I wanted to say is that both your series are on my list of favourites. In fact when you have a new book out, many other well deserving books get put on hold while I read your latest. I am sure whatever you come up with next will be outstanding. Find a better publisher that appreciates you.

  6. I am so sorry to hear this. I truly enjoyed reading both of your series. I have been waiting in anticipation for the next Chloe Jackson book. I enjoy your writing and can’t wait to see what you bring next. I agree with these other comments, find another publisher!

  7. I have loved reading your books and I am very disappointed that your publisher doesn’t see the value in your writing. I hope you can find another publisher we hate to lose your talents and stories.

  8. That’s a shame because it is a good series. Boo to Kensington publishing. Glad the characters are doing good
