Hello, everyone. I hope this blog post finds you well. I have some really exciting news to share with you regarding the Curl Up and Dye Mystery series. Joel Leslie Froomkin has agreed to narrate Dyeing to be Loved this fall! He is extremely talented and I feel so fortunate to work with him. I know he's going to do a fabulous job bringing Josh and Gabe to life for us!
Also, I'm having Dyeing to be Loved reformatted in May to include their prequel. Once that is done, I'm replacing the existing ebook file on Amazon with this updated version.To the best of my knowledge, you will not have to repurchase the ebook to have the updated version. However, you may have to go into your Amazon account and manually update the version because it might not update automatically. I will get more details closer to time.
The prequel was supposed to be included in Dyeing to Be Loved all along, but the publish date for the anthology Fatal Reaction appeared in was pushed back almost two months. I didn't have the rights to the book when Dyeing to be Loved was schedule to release. So, I made Fatal Reaction FREE on my blog once I got my rights back to make up for it, made a note in the book description on Amazon—which doesn't always appear—and added a note on Goodreads. I thought I was doing a good thing by posting it for free, but it seems that I created more chaos. Now, I'm going to do everyting I can to get the ebook updated on Amazon to include the prequel with as little stress to the reader as possible.
I hope to have a cover reveal for I Do, or Dye Trying soon. The book is still on schedule for release on May 2, 2017. Reminder, this is the last book in the mystery part of the series. Josh and Gabe will still be appear as supporting cast in the spinoff/companion books for Chaz, Dr. D, Emory, and Jon. Josh and Gabe will return as the main characters in a holiday book and then we'll probably kick off 2018 with another spinoff/companion book. As far as I can tell right now, Josh and Gabe's books are the only ones with an element of myster to them, but I can't say for sure that's how they'll turn out.
I hope to be back soon with more exciting news!
