Been a while...

Sorry I haven't updated in so long. I always assume you guys will be annoyed if I bust into your life without any news to report.

Suffice it to say life has been interesting here at the farm (those who know me will understand how absurd that sentence was): We're gearing up for a raucous fall and winter, with an appearance at Bouchercon--among the roughly 5,000 other authors attending--at a panel called OLD FRIENDS, NEW FRIENDS which will examine the trials and tribulations of writing more than one series and keeping it all straight in your head. More on that coming soon.

After the trip to Cleveland (the land of cleve), we'll be waiting for the release of the eSpecial novella A WILD GHOST CHASE, told from Paul Harrison's point of view and bringing a few surprises along the way. Look for that on New Year's Eve (everyone's favorite night to stay in and read). I'll supply a few links below.

The fourth Haunted Guesthouse novel, CHANCE OF A GHOST, will be published early in February, and hopefully you'll find it worth the wait. It involves Alison in the death of a gentleman who lived in her mother's active adult community--who claims (he's now a ghost) that he was murdered by electrocution in his bathtub. But Alison's mind is really on her ghostly father, whom her mother reports is missing--and about whose death questions start to arise.

There'll be more coming about both of those in the coming weeks. Thanks for being patient with me; I promise not to drop out of site (get it?) for so long again.

Here's the link to A WILD GHOST CHASE on the Amazon Kindle

and here for the Barnes & Noble Nook. Preorders are available, and it's priced at only $2.99!

And... if you'd like a look at the cover of A WILD GHOST CHASE, well:

The Wait Is Over!

OLD HAUNTS, the third Haunted Guesthouse mystery, is now available at your local (or remote) bookseller! Waste NO time in getting your copy, because you'll want to be in on the fun as Alison deals with everybody's failed relationship: Maxie's ex-husband is found murdered, and she wants Alison to investigate. Paul's almost-intended-bride, still living, is hard to find, and he wants to know she's all right. And Alison's notorious ex, The Swine, is not the least bit missing--he's on the doorstep of her guesthouse on the Jersey Shore, talking about reconciliation. And making Alison wonder what he's REALLY doing here...

Take a look, then enter our contest below! And please, when you read OLD HAUNTS, get in touch and let me know if you enjoyed it--an author ALWAYS wants to hear from readers!

OLD HAUNTS Contest Time!

The box of books arrived today, and the launch of OLD HAUNTS, the third Haunted Guesthouse mystery, is less than three weeks away, so it's time for a contest! Get ready, because this one is going to be fun!

It's also really easy: Just send an email to: ejcopperman [AT] gmail [DOT] com naming your favorite character in the Haunted Guesthouse series. (If you haven't read any of the books, just say: THE HOUSE.) Make sure we have your snail mail address. That's it.

First prize: The only official OLD HAUNTS coffee travel mug, pictured to the left. This 16-oz. mug bears the image of the OLD HAUNTS cover, and, you know, will hold coffee (or any other beverage) in it, too. What's not to like?

Next prize (2 to be awarded): An OLD HAUNTS t-shirt! This shirt (size L) bears the image of the OLD HAUNTS cover and will hold, um, you in it, as well. Stylish and comfortable, it's the shirt to be wearing while reading OLD HAUNTS (or doing pretty much anything else you might like to do) this winter/spring.

Winners to be determined by a completely random selection of the email address out of a hat (probably an OLD HAUNTS hat, which bears... never mind) on Wednesday, February 29--that's right, Leap Day! (Why not?)

Enter as many times as you like, as long as it's once. Duplicate entries will be shredded and made into birdcage lining as soon as I get a bird. No purchase is required, or even possible.

Tell your friends; tell your enemies; tell total strangers--OLD HAUNTS is on its way!
