Frosted Shadow, a Toni Diamond comic murder mystery (Toni Diamond Makeup Mysteries) by Nancy Warren

I’ve read some pretty craptastic cozy mysteries over the past several years. When the author sent this book in with a review request, I let it sit for quite a while. I just couldn’t wrap my head around how it wasn’t going to make me groan and gouge my eyes out with a spoon. I […]

Guest Post by R.G. Triplett, Author of The Great Darkening (Epic of Haven Trilogy)

Tell us about yourself… I think I would call myself an artist at heart. The way I cook, the way I write, the way I communicate and make music and tell stories – even the way I smoke a cigar and savor a good bourbon – always comes with the motivation to discover or uncover […]
