If you’ve been online, you may have seen the latest movement in the publishing industry that seeks to petition big-time houses against cancellation of many beloved cozy mystery series.
Unfortunately, the decision to end new releases from wonderful writers wasn’t one alone taken by Penguin. Small publishers are doing the same! It is with sad news I announce that I too have been hit by this tidal wave.
What can you do to help the Save Our Cozies movement?

Dial QR for Murder was the first book released in October last year. Despite the short time of its release and Amazon rating of 4.8 of 5 stars, I’m desperately searching for book 2 and 3 to be picked up.
If anyone would like a free copy of Dial QR for Murder in exchange for a review, please feel free to message me with your KINDLE address. I can only send mobi files. Right now, MANY AUTHORS are offering the same opportunity for you to receive free books in exchange for reviews. REVIEWS ARE THAT IMPORTANT. YOUR VOICE IS THAT IMPORTANT.
Yes, the fight is real! No April Fool’s here. As posted in the Facebook Group, Save Our Cozies, by Shelly Toler Franz:
