Posted on Nov 30 2009


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of terrific food . . . especially cake!

Congratulations to Michelle (a/k/a dolls123) the Twitter contestant who won a signed copy of Murder Takes the Cake, Dead Pan and a red Murder Takes the Cake apron. For those of you who did not win the Twitter contest, there is still time to enter Gayle’s November contest at Fresh Fiction and also her Fresh Fiction Christmas contest wherein one entrant will win a copy of each of my books along with a $25 Amazon gift card. While you’re at Fresh Fiction, check out the other contests. There are some great giveaways going on during the month of December!

Book Signing

Gayle will be in Kingsport, TN at Waldenbooks in the mall on December 12 from noon until 3 p.m. If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello.

Something Interesting

I don’t know how you feel about webisodes . . . you know, the mini-programs available on some sites (in particular, TV network sites). I haven’t seen very many myself, but I have seen In Gayle We Trust, a web series on the USA Network. Each episode lasts about 31/2 minutes and is about an insurance agent named Gayle. They’re really cute. My favorites are Gayle and the Birthday Call and Gayle and the Hypnotist. Check them out.
