Good news, and Happy 2014!

by Carola

The good news has been rolling in recently. Latest is that the 4th Daisy Dalrymple mystery, Murder on the Flying Scotsman, is now out in audio.

  
Last week I got a terrific review of the new Daisy mystery, Heirs of the Body, from ShelfAwareness.com

 "Heirs of the Body marks Daisy Dalrymple's 21st adventure. Dunn has kept her affable heroine--a writer turned amateur sleuth in 1920s England--lively and engaging throughout the traditional whodunit series. As Daisy's aristocratic family become embroiled in another cozy mystery, Dunn offers a strong sense of place, tight and suspenseful plotting and well-defined motives--all serving to enrich the entertaining puzzle at the heart of the story." --Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines


 A few days before that, I heard that the first three Daisy books are going to be translated into Hungarian! I can't wait to see whether Hungarian cover artists have the same penchant for black cats as the Polish.
This is the latest Polish cover: Mistletoe and Murder, nicely timed for Christmas.


And I got a contract from my UK publisher for another Regency Trilogy. No idea what those covers will be like, but the ebooks are 














So, altogether it's been a great year and I can only wish myself and everyone else as much success in 2014!

Happy New Year

Congrats, Carola. It's fun listening to a narrator act out your books. I now have have four with more to come.

The new one is a different narrator, Jean. Sadly--because I heard Bernadette Dunn was really good. I gather she's so busy it would have meant a long wait for her services.
Do let me know how you like her replacement.

Which audio company are you with, Carola? I'm with ACX and am fortunate to have had four good narrators.
