Granny teaches Gussie many valuable life lessons as a black woman growing up in the still-segregated south. Mr. Combs is an evil underhanded banker who takes liberties beyond his privilege. When Granny dies, Combs informs Gussie she owes him back rent—but he wants much more than money for payment—and more than Gussie can live with.
After defending herself against his sexual advances, Gussie flees to escape certain vigilante justice when she meets a charming, handsome stranger, Sam Johnson, who is just returning from World War II.

Renee, you rock! Seriously. I don't know how you squeezed all this good author karma around your day job, but I imagine you'll be sleeping well Sunday. Great graphic, too. I know I missed the inaugural run, but I'll be posting about it tomorrow to my meager networks and wish everyone the best of luck. A rising mystery tide keeps us all in fedoras.  ;)

Thanks. With a new release, finishing a book to go to the editor soon, my nephew's final high school concert tonight, it's been crazy. But hopefully good.
I appreciate your help!

Per Judy, "Renee Rocks" is a good epigram for this promo.  It's up on my blog and set to be blasted out to my mailing list.  Anxious to hear everyone's results in a couple of days.

Ha, you're too funny :)

I didn't realize TweetDeck was still around, I'd forgotten about it entirely. I just tried it, and when I schedule a tweet it creates a new column to show my scheduled content. There is an Edit link, but changing the content of the tweet doesn't seem to stick unless I also change the time it is scheduled to go. A change of a few minutes worked; probably even a one-minute change would suffice.

I am about to hit the hay - I will be online about 8 am MST and will post my Facebook link here. I don't have a pretty tweet with the graphic, sorry about that (see my email to you all). I will still tweet it. My emails will go out tomorrow afternoon and Saturday.
Best of luck to us all - I hope when this is over, you all feel like it was worth it :)

How do I get a copy of the image everyone is using. I've simply posted the link of facebook in my author name and my real name, but I want to do one with the group's marketing image.

I also have a new release today so I've combined my newsletter to announce both. It will go out to 1460+ people over the course of the next two days in three segmented email blasts.

Also, here's my website post http://reginawelling.com/mystery-thriller-99-sale-2-days/

My website crossposts to Facebook so there's already one post there, but I'll make another one tomorrow.

I've done the same post in my own name, but I don't want to disclose that.

I've retweeted ReGina Welling's post because I don't know how to do the image

Guys! So many of your FB links are merely leading to your profile page, in general, not to the actual sharable (new word alert) post.  Please follow the instructions on how to copy the specific post's URL.

Declan, I just emailed you the graphics email Renee provided. Good thing I had your address from when you formatted a book for me. :)

Not sure if everyone is aware of this, but if you're using the hashtag on twitter and Facebook, all of the posts that have used the hashtag can be found simply by searching for the hashtag #TeamMysteryThriller on Facebook and Twitter.

The instructions for facebook say to get the link from the date on the embed, but if you see no link click where it says "advanced options."
