Penguin (@ReadPenguin) has chosen my latest mystery, A DANGEROUS FICTION, to be its book of the month, which entails two book chats on Twitter. It's just come out in paperback, which also brings the ebook price down, so it's an auspicious time for the book to be featured.

Naturally this good news fills me with anxiety. What if they throw this party and nobody comes? If any of you Tweet, I hope you'll jump in. First chat's on #AuthorChat Sept. 9 from 3-4PM ET. The book's a murder mystery set in publishing world, so highly cathartic for the peons in that cosmos (that would be us writers.) Here's an excerpt. Hope to see you on Twitter, where I'm known as @RoganBarbara.

Wow! I'm impressed. I've been sending them stories for more than 15 years and have yet to get in.

Hello all

I'm quite excited that the second Shara Summers book, DEAD COOL, though an e-book and not released till 25 November, is available on Amazon for pre-order - at a discounted price.

In fact I'm so excited about this I wanted to share the link.

If you're in the US, it's this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Dead-Cool-Shar...0957450&sr=1-5

And if you're in the UK, you can pre-order your Kindle copy here:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dead-Cool-Sh...0957452&sr=1-4

I will emphasise this is the second book. The first one is released on Monday but that one's not uploaded yet. I'm currently working on the galleys - we're cutting it fine. But it will be available on Monday.
