I’m sending out an extra newsletter this month as I have an event coming up this weekend I wasn’t expecting. I had contacted folks at the Crown Pointe Academy about their Craft Fair. They were booked up, though hoping to get a local author but hadn’t found one. The organizer took my email and said she’d reach out if anyone had to back out at the last minute. And low and behold someone did. So I will have one more event to do this year with a chance to talk with potential readers and sell a few more books. This has been my best holiday selling season; ever! A heartfelt thanks to everyone who has stopped by and purchased my books.
The Crown Pointe Academy Craft Fair is being held on December 14th & 15th from 10AM-5PM both days. Admission is free for this event run by the PTA as a fundraiser for this local charter school. There will be crafts, pictures with Santa and door prizes. Stop on out if you’re in the area.
Lots more sign-ups at the various events I’ve done this past month. Welcome to all of you. I hope you enjoy the newsletter. Everyone who registers for my newsletter I offer a free eBook version of Tracking A Shadow. If you signed up and didn’t receive the email from me with this offer, be sure to email me and I’ll get it sent to you right away. Sometimes the communication gets missed in the bevy of emails we all receive and other times it might get caught in your spam filter. You can always add this email address to your email application allowed list, so it doesn’t get discarded.
If you’ve missed a past newsletter you can always find them on my website, where all past issues are stored. I normally only send out once a month, though like this month I can occasionally send a second email when I have news to share. And rest assured I never share or sell your email address to anyone!
I will toss in a plug of my holiday-themed novella, The Case of the Invisible Souls. This book was my biggest seller at the events I’ve done this year, as I sell the paperback for $5, which gives users an inexpensive book to get a taste of PI Jarvis Mann. Here is the synopsis of the book:
With Christmas a few weeks away
Happy these last few months had been quiet
Private Detective Jarvis Mann decides to take on an interesting case
A homeless veteran knocks on his door with a story
Several of his homeless companions have been bribed
Then taxied away never to return.
Taking pause to the man’s story at first
Jarvis digs deeper learning of plans to clear out the homeless
When the man is attacked, and seriously injured
Jarvis goes undercover
Learning more about life on the streets than he ever knew
Becoming one of the Invisible Souls in search of an answer.
The Case of the Invisible Souls previously reached Number 1 on the Amazon Bestseller list for Mystery Novella’s, with the story available in eBook, paperback and via Kindle Unlimited. Or you can buy it directly from me. And those who purchase the paperback, you get a bonus short story in the back, The Case of the Missing Bubble Gum Card. The story that started it all for PI Jarvis Mann. Here are a couple of 5-Star reviews of Invisible Souls.
I love the fact that this author brings to light the plight of our forgotten hero’s that gave for us only to be forgotten and cast aside like garbage. It brings to mind that instead of sticking your nose in the air and thinking that the homeless brought it on themselves that there may be more to the story than meets the eye – Charleann Davis
Wasn’t sure what to expect with this being a shorter book than Mr Weir has been producing, but wow shouldn’t of had doubt as this book packed an eye-opener punch I didn’t see coming. This book sheds light on homelessness and soldiers struggles when they return home from war. Definitely, recommend for all those who need a reality check – Soph
Another plug for Mann in the Crossfire, which has been nominated as Best Indie Book of 2019 via Amy Shannon’s review blog. If you feel it’s worthy you can vote for the latest Jarvis Mann PI novel here. Voting concludes December 15th.
Thanks for indulging me with a second newsletter this month. I wish everyone a safe and peaceful holiday, with all your family and friends. And be sure to find a book with a wonderful story to snuggle up to by the fireplace.
