Hi everyone -- Don't we love our books? The list of MWA giveaways is enough to send me back to the bookstore or library for another armful of wonderful stories I don't have time to read. :)

Hi Clarissa -- no, The Desert Hedge Murders is not going to be on Kindle until after the hardcover is remaindered. I'm currently in the process of getting cover art ready to put The Prairie Grass Murders on ebook, however, and that's the first of the two Sylvia and Willie mysteries.
