Announcing A KILLER RETREAT on Audiobook!

Hi all!  Today’s post will be short but sweet, as I’m limiting my computer time while I recover from a recent whiplash injury.  But I wanted to tell you that my newest audiobook, A Killer Retreat, is now available!  Check it out at https://www.amazon.com/Killer-Retreat-Downward-Dog-Mystery/dp/B071JG4SJ9/

Even better, if you already own or purchase the Kindle version of the book, you can get the audiobook for only $3.47!

An official launch party and blog tour will be held in July.  In the meantime, I hope you give it a try and love it!

Cover Revealed!

Thanks to everyone who participated in my birthday-week cover reveal contest for PRE-MEDITATED MURDER last week.  The full cover is below!

My publisher opted to go with a different cover artist this time, so the book has a different look and feel than the first four.  I’ll miss bright-and-happy Kate and Bella, but on the plus side, the new image is less likely to be confused with a children’s book.

More about the book:

Yoga instructor Kate Davidson is ready to marry her boyfriend Michael, so she’s disappointed when a special dinner doesn’t end with a proposal. But disappointment turns to dismay and outrage as she learns the real problem: Michael is already married and his green card-seeking wife is blackmailing him.    

When his wife’s body is found—by Kate and her dog, no less—Michael is strangely unable to remember where he was the night she died. Since Michael has no alibi, Kate steps up to uncover what happened. What she walks into is a tangled web of deceit, obsession, and immigration fraud . . .  with Michael trapped in the middle.

So what do you think?  New cover yes?  New cover no?  Tell me why in the comments.  And if you’re interested in pre-ordering the book, you can do so at this link.

Enjoy!

It’s Tracy’s Birthday (aka Margarita Day!) How About a Cover Reveal Contest?

Two fun pieces of news today!  First, it’s my birthday!  Whoo hoo!  Margaritas for everyone!

Second, my fifth Downward Dog Mystery, Pre-Meditated Murder is available for pre-order!  Kate has really gotten herself into trouble this time.  To see how, take a look at the book’s description at https://www.amazon.com/Pre-Meditated-Murder-Downward-Dog-Mystery-ebook/dp/B0711WY9ST/.

Which brings us to the contest.

My publisher decided to go with a new cover look this time, and I’m excited to hear what you think of it.  Since my past cover reveal contests have been so fun, I’ve decided to reveal it through a similar contest this year!  Here’s how it works:

Each day for the next five days, I’ll post an element of the cover on my Facebook author page https://www.facebook.com/TracyWeberAuthor.  Before midnight that day, leave a comment naming the object pictured and you’ll be entered into that day’s contest.  Sharing the contest, liking my author page or friending me on Facebook are all good karma, but not required.

While you’re there, be sure to make a note of the object for the grand prize round.

Then, any time between when I post the final object on Friday, June 9 and Sunday, June 11 at midnight, send me an e-mail at Tracy@WholeLifeYoga.com with all five objects.  Once I receive your e-mail, you’ll be entered to win the grand prize.  The full cover will be revealed on this blog and on Facebook on Monday, June 12.

Here are the prizes! 

  • Monday: Your choice of the audiobook or an autographed paper copy of my Agatha Nominated first book, Murder Strikes a Pose. If you already own it, remember:  books make great gifts!
  • Tuesday: A Downward Dog Mysteries coffee mug.
  • Wednesday: An autographed copy of the fourth book in the series, A Fatal Twist. If you already own it, remember:  books make great gifts!
  • Thursday:  A $15 Amazon gift certificate.
  • Friday:  An advanced copy of Pre-Meditated Murder when it’s available sometime in August.
  • Grand Prize:  A Dog and Crossbones book bag, a Downward Dog Mysteries coffee mug,  and an advanced copy of Pre-Meditated Murder when it’s available.

The first cover element is pictured below.  Visit today’s post on my  Facebook Author Page and make your first entry!

NOTE:  By entering, you acknowledge that Facebook is not liable for any part of the contest.  The contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.  😉

Namaste and good luck!

Of Life and Birth and Mysterious Journeys

Today’s my day to blog at Inkspot, the blog for authors of Midnight Ink.  I’m discussing my experience as a birth doula (limited though it may be), how it transformed me, and why I chose to write about being a doula in my fourth Downward Dog Mystery, A Fatal Twist.

Blog Tour Reviews:  I’m so pleased with the initial reviews of my newest book.  Loving it!

…a funny story and the author does a wonderful job with the characters and scenes. ~Bab’s Book Bistro

With Tracy Weber we get an abundance of education while having fun…The action and troubles seem to never cease. ~Laura’s Interests

The author has created characters that are fun and entertaining…I highly recommend this book (and series) to all readers! ~A Date With A Book

Kate is the main character in this cozy mystery. She has a great sense of empathy for others and I loved how she was determined to make sure the right killer was charged. ~Texas Book-aholic

The characters are all well-written and have depth to them. The plot is captivating with so many different possible outcomes. ~Socrates’ Book Reviews…

I have several reasons for loving these stories, there is always a great mystery, the characters are genuine and continue to grow, relationships are fluid, there is humor in all the right places and I always learn something new. ~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

Definitely a great series for those who love yoga, babies, and puppies. I found myself unable to put this book down and don’t think you will either! ~Community Bookstop

Writing each Downward Dog Mystery takes about a year, and involves more hours than you can even imagine. I’m already looking forward to next year’s launch events!

Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
