Thanks, readers, for helping me get to #1 on Amazon/Women Sleuths

HAH-Hanging-Man-Oct-5-2012I woke up this morning to find that my novel, The Housewife Assassin's Handbook was #1 in Amazon, under the category of Free Kindle Books/Women Sleuths.  I was also #3 in Amazon/Free Kindle Books/Romantic Suspense,  #3 in Free Kindle Books/Mysteries & Thrillers

And #20 of ALL Amazon/Free Kindle books.

It's free on Amazon, today only, so get it now…

The reason I'm excited: the more readers' hands my book gets into, even as a free book, the more likely they are to pick up the second and the third books in the series. Book 2 The Housewife Assassin's Guide to Gracious Living is out now, and Book 3, The Housewife Assassin's Killer Christmas Tips will be out December 1st.

Here's a short synopsis of each book. Click the links for excerpts…

In The Housewife Assassin's Handbook

 - Every desperate housewife wants an alias: Donna Stone has one…and it happens to be government-sanctioned.
– But Donna earned it the hard way: her husband was killed the day she delivered their third child.    - To avenge her husband's murder: Donna leads a secret life: as an assassin.    - But espionage makes for strange bedfellows:
 and brings new meaning to that old adage, "Honey, I'm home…"




 Stop a rogue operative before he assassinates the newly-elected Russian president — on US soil!

– DONNA WANTS A DIVORCE: But first she's got to serve a summons to a deadbeat dad… who's also a terrorist! - AS FOR DONNA'S LOVE LIFE: Turns out the spy who loves her has a bombshell secret of his own…
