Crow Calling Selected for Indie Author Project
Crow Calling, Book Three in the Maya Skye cozy mystery series, has been selected to be part of the Indie Author Project (IAP). Now all three Maya Skye mysteries as well as Book of Mercy are in the IAP Select Ebook Collection, which is curated by Library Journal. That’s right, curated. Thousands of books are published each year, and this program wants to make it easier for libraries to choose indie ebooks that have merit. That kind of approval is hard to come by for indie authors as I wrote about here. So this is exciting.
IAP works “with top editorial partners to identify the best indie ebooks available to readers so they can be sustainably circulated to library patrons with confidence.” In Minnesota where I live, IAP works with MN Writes MN Reads, which is dedicated to forging a bridge between indie authors and readers, encouraging writers to pursue their creative works, and enhancing the ebook collections of Minnesota libraries. (There are similar programs in other states. This is a growing movement.) Please ask your local library about the Indie Author Project and encourage your library to participate in this program.
Crow Calling is an unconventional cozy that combines the intrigue of small-town Minnesota with an absorbing mystery and the challenge of saving the monarchs.
I started out as a reporter in Missouri and Vermont, wrote op-ed pieces for USA Today, and now I write short stories and novels. My mysteries and fiction combine humor and unforgettable characters as they explore issues of the day. I’m in love with the quirky, and it shows in my books.
My essays on topics ranging from current events to the Sanity Toolkit (ideas to get you through the day) are collected at The Hearth.
