Before I tried my hand at urban fantasy, I wrote a contemporary mystery set in a fictional upstate New York college town (one that’s kinda sorta like the real upstate New York college town where I live). Peace, Love, and Murder was published by Five Star, which produces hard-cover editions for libraries, but its $27 price tag kept the book from getting a wider readership.
Recently, I made Peace, Love, and Murder available as an ebook. I originally set the price at $2.99, but it’s currently on sale for just 99 cents. I’m not looking to get rich. But PLM was a lot of fun to write, and I think it’s a fun read. I’d love for more readers to find it. You can read the first chapter here.
Thanks to the sale price, PLM was featured yesterday on dailycheapreads.com, a great resource for finding bargain-priced ebooks. Check out the site if you’re looking for good reads at a low price. The site lists all kinds of books—every genre, traditionally published, and self-published—and is a great way to find books you might otherwise overlook.
