C'Mon Inn Mystery Novellas - Now Available on Amazon

They're here - now available in ebook format as single books.

Paradise Down
 Aloha Nicholás! But will this be a hello or a goodbye?

When Lucia Santerez returns home to Hawaii to help her brother Nicholás with his new dive shop, she learns Nicholás has disappeared--and someone doesn't want him found.

Enlisting the aid of hunky vacationing firefighter, Brandon Matthews, gets them the wrong kind of attention. They discover what lies under the water off the coast of the Hawaiian island of Kaua`i could make you rich or get you killed.

Paradise Dead
 Hawaii - paradise or a death trap?

Ten friends gather in Kauai to fulfill the final wish of an old friend - the scattering of his ashes. One by one, they are beset by accidents.

Are they really accidents?

Or could something more sinister be at play?

Paradise Drift
 A fiery explosion sets a new course for the passengers on a charter boat.

What is intended as a relaxing vacation for three childhood friends and their partners becomes a fiery inferno and not everyone will escape.

When the survivors gather a year later, they find themselves involved in a surprising investigation into the events of the prior year.

Will anyone’s life ever be the same?

All available to read for free with an Amazon Kindle Unlimited subscription.

#Accountaclub: Aug 10, 2018

Reporting in for Isa-Lee Wolf's #AccountaClub. Each Friday we post an accountability update for our current projects/goals/whatever.

I missed/skipped last week....sorry!

1) Support hubby's project in any way I can.
Well, the contractors came and went and we have a pavilion. Check it out at the Backend of Nowhere Garage blog. I've sent out an email plea for help from family & friends, we'll see how that goes.

2) Finish the rewrite of my former Kindle World books, get new covers and republish them. I also plan on combining the three into a box set as well as a print version.
This is getting there. The covers are done and the first edit of the three are complete. I need to do one more run through, figure out a marketing strategy and hopefully get them published before we have a week of grandkids visiting.

3) In addition, I have three blogs that have asked me to write guest posts.
One down and two to go! I plan to get the other two done by the end of this weekend. Phew!

Two of our young grandgirls are coming to stay with us for a week, the 15th to the 22nd. I will be busy all week so will be skipping next week's post.

Another week down...see you next Friday in two weeks!

To join in the fun, sign up at Isa-Lee Wolf's #AccountaClub page or post in her or my comments.

Never have I ever....

There is a drinking game called "Never Have I Ever". I've never played it but it made me start thinking about some of the things I've never done, things that it often seems like everyone else has. So I thought I'd list a few and see what things are on YOUR never done list.

I've never...
  • ...attended a high school football game.
  • ...eaten snails. (ugh!)
  • ...been a first adopter of new fashion fads.
  • ...driven a car over ninety mph. (We won't mention my motorcycle though.)
  • ...willingly eaten anything tasting of black licorice.
  • ...experienced a tornado (only a warning).
  • ...changed a flat tire.
  • ...liked the taste of whiskey, bourbon or most liquors. (Vodka & spiced rum only.)
  • ...driven somewhere on the spur of the moment. (I'm a planner at heart.)
  • ...visited Europe or really wanted to (other than Scotland/Ireland).
  • ...eaten liver and onions since I became an adult.
  • ...ordered chocolate cake! (Not even Carnival's famous chocolate melting cake.)
  • ...gone to an ugly Christmas sweater party.
  • ...willing swam under water. (No snorkeling, either.)
  • ...gone (or wanted to go) water skiing, parasailing, bungee jumping or the like.
  • ...visited the Empire State building.
  • ...participated in an on-line challenge (like eating Tide Pods, or dancing beside a moving car).
  • ...played Spin the Bottle.
  • ...lost anything to fire, hurricane or other natural disaster. (Blessed!)
  • ...worn stilletos! (Nor will I ever...)
What are some of the things it feels like "everyone else" does but you haven't?
