Last Chance!

The ARC contest ends Saturday May 1! Get in your estimate--count the birds on the cover of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED (see below to get a larger view, or go to for a better look). Send me an email at: ejcopperman AT gmail DOT com with your email address and snail mail address (and the bird count). Correct answers will be selected randomly to win one of TWO Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED, the first Haunted Guesthouse Mystery!

Winners will be announced Monday, May 3 here and at the web site. Good luck!

Hello, Malice Domestic!

No, I won't be in Arlington for Malice Domestic this weekend--just couldn't drag myself away from the current work--but I am sending my emissary, Berkley Prime Crime author Jeff Cohen, to say hello and report back to me. So everyone who sees Jeff, make sure you tell him to say hi to E.J. for you. And pick up a NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED bookmark or sunscreen while you're there!

The Site Is Up!

After much ado, my web site is up and running; take a look! Much fun stuff there, but if you have suggestions for more you'd like to see, drop us an email and let us know! Also possible to get a BIG version of the NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED cover, and that means it's easier to count the crows and put in an entry for the ARC contest, ending Saturday night!

Also, a quick note: My Twitter account is "under review" for reasons I don't entirely understand, but hopefully will be back online shortly. I'll keep you informed. But check out the web site!

Very pleased with the response to our ARC contest--there's still time left to enter! Just go to (or look below right here) for the cover art of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED. Count the birds on the front cover. And send that information (that is, the number of birds) along with your email address and snail mail address (so we can send the ARC of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEED) to: ejcoppermanATgmailDOTcom. I am currently consulting with the graphic artist who did the cover painting--to determine what's a bird and what's a little dot of color--and will take those entries that have the correct number, and select two in a random fashion as yet to be determined (out of a hat is leading the competition at the moment). Two ARCs will be sent as prizes after the drawing May 1.

Enter now! I'd say enter often, but entering more than once really won't help you. I'll just put your name in the hat once.
