Roxy Reminder: Missing You releases August 13th!

Blog - Book Banner

 

Hello Precious Readers!

I have a more definitive date of Missing You‘s release for everyone: August 13th! Gahhh! It’s less than one month away! Squee!!!

It’s been a bit busy on this side of the computer prepping for the big day. If you follow me on Facebook, you already know the FINAL DRAFT was sent in to publishers. You’ve already seen the GORGEOUS cover, and I’m so excited to bring Roxy’s next adventure to you. During my future release party I’m going to have some deliciously, lovely gift baskets up for grabs, so be on the lookout (or BOLO, if you watch crime shows, like I do) for the Release Party announcement soon to come!

Pre-order links will be up soon. Once their up, make sure you pre-purchase your copy as soon as possible, as there maaaaay be a hint about a fourth Roxy Summers adventure in the back. (Hint, hint.)

Roxy’s adventure in Missing You takes place in Alaska. Definitely not feeling winter blues. It’s been in the 90-degree Fahrenheit weather in Washington. For us PNW folks, air conditioning is not a standard feature to have in homes, so we’re melllllllting! Fans have been on nonstop, pups are sitting in front of the fan, and ice cubes are aplenty in their water bowls. We have some breaks from the heat by taking drives in the car, which has air conditioning. The Bacher Fort, alas, does not.

I want to start hearing from you, so I’m going to start asking one question per post to you. I’d love to see comments, or email me at katherinebacher@gmail.com with your responses. I love hearing from you! I really, really do!

So, this post’s question is: What is your favorite summer treat to cool off? We love frozen grapes, fruit salad, and ice pops.

Thank you for being such loyal blog readers, hello to any newbies! More Roxy news coming at you soon!

Life threw a curveball, so here’s the catch – Missing You releases August 2018 and LIVE EVENT announcement!

Well, Precious Readers,

If you don’t follow me on social media, I have an announcement:

MY - Blog - Book Page Header

Due to stuff and things, the release date for my book, Missing You (a Roxy Summers Mystery #3) was pushed to AUGUST 2018. I know, I know, I’ve been dangling the next book release like a literary carrot for months, but… reasons. Sometimes life happens, and in this case, it was a timing issue. If it helps, Missing You is with my loyal Beta Readers, and I’ve already begun to receive helpful feedback.

In other news…

lcc

Guess what? I’m all signed up to attend the 2019 Left Coast Crime convention Whale of a Crime! This is both an author AND reader event where hundreds of people from the west coast will congregate over their love of mysteries! All sub genres fall under this umbrella: Cozy, Thriller, Romantic, Humorous, Suspense, etc. Each year, the conference is in a new city. For LCC 2019: Whale of a Crime, it will be hosted in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada! My sort-of backyard! The conference is from March 28-31, 2019. If you want to join in, you do have to register, so I recommend registering early. This is the biggest convention for mystery lovers on the whole west coast.

At LCC 2019: Whale of a Crime, I’ll be attending the various panels during the event. I will not be hosting any panels, but look forward to bumping elbows with my fellow lovers of all things mystery, whether tame or intense. If you happen to be there, look me up, and I’d love to have a photo taken with you. I look forward talking with you about anything lighthearted and humorously sleuthy!

It may be a bit of sad news, but I hope I also brought tidings of ultra-cool, great news!

Special Announcement: COVER REVEAL for MISSING YOU (a Roxy Summers Mystery #3)

Omigosh!

I can’t believe it!

It’s here!

IT’S HERE!

 

Missing You (a Roxy Summers Mystery #3) has a brand new cover, and it’s AWESOME! Ever since I saw the preview a few days ago, I’ve been completely in love with it and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. I’ve been (excitedly and impatiently) waiting to get the OK from my publisher to share the cover with you, and TODAY IS THE DAY! You are the first ones to see it! My Precious Readers who’ve been with me since before I was published. I haven’t even posted to my Facebook Group yet, but shh! don’t tell them, okay? They’ll get their own special announcement later today.

 

As what has now become commonplace for all of my books (completely accidentally), Missing You is releasing in the complete opposite season the characters are experiencing in the story. While it’s ramping up for Summer in the Real World, in the fictional world it’s winter; but, I digress.

 

The cover… Oh, the cover!

Cover - MY

 

I love it. I love it so much. Yes, that is a moose on the cover. The cold wintry scene is leaving me with chills. Chills! (Have you paid attention to the hints I’ve been dropping these last few months?)

 

All I can say is, welcome to my fictional town of Ptarmigan, Alaska! I don’t know if you are aware, but I’ve been to Alaska and would LOVE to go back, anytime. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I already have the appropriate winter gear, and was toasty warm and dry.

 

Granted, it was a 7-day cruise, but ever since that trip, my husband, Pilot and I have dreamed of going back. Perhaps one day driving there from our Washington home and staying. Although I tend to be more of a desert lizard, loving that dry heat weather, Pilot is happiest when temps are no higher than 65 degrees. I don’t get it, and he doesn’t get me when it comes to weather. One thing we both agree on: we hate hot humid weather.

 

In other news, I’ve heard from my editor, and it’s going to be ANY DAY NOW when I finally receive edits back. I’ll make any necessary corrections, and then SEND IT TO THE MINI-MASSES for a Beta Reader phase.

Final announcement, a reminder that today is the LAST DAY to participate in Night Owl Romance’s Spring Fling Scavenger Hunt! It’s an opportunity to win free books from 35+ authors, myself included! I’ve been on the comment board and responded directly to readers with their comments and questions. You should drop a line over there too! I’d love to hear from you.

Special Sale from Oct. 26-30 – Capture Me is FREE, and Crush On You is only $1.99!

Hidey-ho there, Precious Readers!

I have a super-secret-squirrel sale I wanted to let you all know about! My Roxy Summers Mystery Series will be having a special sale on Amazon between October 26-30th.

For anyone who has, ahem, perhaps procrastinated in obtaining their copies of my books, this is a fantastic opportunity to catch up with Roxy Summers and the gang, and read up on all of their adventures! Don’t delay in taking advantage of this amazing sale before my third Roxy Summers Mystery book releases in June 2018!

 


Capture Me will be FREE to anyone on Amazon KDP!
Photographer and sassy Seattle-lite Roxy Summers swears off men after catching her ex-boyfriend, a.k.a. her ex-boss, in a compromising position. Newly single and facing eviction, Roxy puts all distractions (men!) aside as she begins her new job assisting an international fashion photographer and notorious playboy.

No one told Roxy her new job would entail dealing with her new boss’ fiery temper, his emotional girlfriend, his conniving ex-mistress, his partner who has a melt-the-polar-ice-caps blinding smile, have her stumbling over a body, become an amateur detective and find herself annoyingly attracted to Detective Charlie Bennett, who seems determined to put Roxy in handcuffs!

Crush On You will be only $1.99 on Amazon Kindle!
Someone is dishing up trouble.
Seattle sweetie, Roxy Summers, kicks off her new career as a magazine feature photojournalist and blogger with her first assignment, covering a Seattle favorite restaurant while they compete in a televised food competition! Next thing you know, with her besties in tow, Roxy hops a plane to Los Angeles.

Temperatures are rising.
With national fame and fortune on the line, the competition is deadly. With sabotage, a stalker, and a devastating secret that could destroy them all, Roxy soon finds her simple assignment has turned into a twisted labyrinth of betrayal, death threats, and murder.

Things are boiling over.
Even worse, Roxy’s personal life is… complicated. Her sort-of-kind-of-but-not-quite relationship with the sultry and brooding Seattle Detective, Charlie Bennett is on the rocks. To add salt to the wound, her former crush and now boss, joins her on the trip. The cherry on top is the reemergence of her cheating ex, crawling back and begging for another chance.

Roxy needs to sift through the chaos of her relationships and find the culprit destroying the competition before it gets too hot in the kitchen.


Get your copy HERE between October 26-30 for this one-time-only, special deal!

Why? It’s because I love all of you.

Hugs and fantastic fall deals to you,
