COLD GROUND GINGER – Read the first three chapters


Read the first three chapters of my brand new mystery novel and get a chance to win a copy of the ebook. Go to, read the excerpt, and if you like it, click “Nominate me.” If Kindle Press publishes the book, they will give you a FREE copy of the ebook when it is released.

I just finished writing and editing the third book of my Ginger Lightley Cozy Mystery Series, COLD GROUND GINGER, and you can read the first three chapters on the Kindle Scout website.

Amazon says: Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book gets published. Readers “nominate” the books they would like to see published. After 30 days, Amazon looks at the number of nominations a book received and an Amazon editor reviews the book. Then a publishing decision is made, based on the number of nominations and the editor’s opinion of the book.

If you nominate COLD GROUND GINGER and Amazon decides to publish it, they will give you a FREE COPY of the Kindle ebook. You will need to have an Amazon account to nominate the book, but not to read the excerpt.

COLD GROUND GINGER will be published no matter what. It’s just a matter of whether it gets published by Kindle Press or gets self-published like my other books. But I would prefer that Kindle Press publish it, primarily because Amazon will give it a powerful launch and will continue to promote it as long as sales are strong.

I hope you’ll follow this link to Kindle Scout, read the three chapter excerpt, and if you like it, click the “Nominate me” button.

The deadline is midnight, May 26th.

FYI: The first two books of the series are Sweet Ginger Poison and Ginger Dead House.
