Re: Please Welcome Author BETH GROUNDWATER!

Thanks for having me on as a guest author this week, Becke! I always love hanging out with the B&N mystery book club, and I'll continue to check in as a reader, as well as an author, of mystery fiction to see what everyone is chatting about. Have a great Memorial Day weekend, folks, and please join me in sending up a silent prayer for comfort and courage for the families of brave soldiers who have given up their lives, limbs, sight, etc. to protect us and our country.

- Beth

Finished WICKED EDDIES last night. Enjoyed that one too! While camping this weekend in Jim Thorpe PA, a big group of relatives went rafting on The Lehigh River. I was telling my daughter about the book. When she came back from their 14 mile trip, she told me that she saw some "wicked eddies". Apparently, the river was quite high and running pretty fast and they were predicting more thunderstorms Sunday evening. They were lucky to get their trip in before the storms hit! They didn't find any dead bodies either, so that was a good thing! Looking forward to the next book in the series, CATARACT CANYONS!

LOL, Eadie! I'm glad your daughter didn't find any dead bodies either. Let's leave those discoveries for works of fiction. :smileyhappy: I'm so pleased you enjoyed reading Wicked Eddies  !

Re: Please Welcome Author BETH GROUNDWATER!

Hi everyone,
Here's another contest opportunity for you! Today I'm a guest on book reviewer Dollycas's blog. She's a fan and shares a great review of WICKED EDDIES. And I share an article about "The Most Dangerous Sport" (no, it's not the one you think it is!). She's also running a contest at the blog for her review copy of the book. Enjoy!

Re: Please Welcome Author BETH GROUNDWATER!

Now that my efforts to promote the re-release of TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET are winding down, I'm turning my attention to the next release in my RM Outdoor Adventures series, FATAL DESCENT, set in the Canyonlands area of Utah on the Colorado River. I'm thrilled with the very precarious cover art that the Midnight Ink artists have come up with for it. The book features both climbing and whitewater rafting scenes, and I'm so glad they were able to convey a sense of both. What do you think? You can see it at:


http://bethgroundwater.blogspot.com/2012/11/cover-art-for-fatal-descent.html

 

There's a page for it on the B&N shopping site, but the cover art isn't up yet.

Re: Please Welcome Author BETH GROUNDWATER!

Hi Becke,

I'd love to be a guest author around the time of the June, 2013 release of

Fatal Descent  , book 3 in my RM Outdoor Adventures series.

 

(Darn, when's that cover art going to be posted!) After the holidays, I'll try to get a guest post together about the Claire Hanover gift basket designer series. Please nag me in late January if you don't hear from me!

I've got you on the schedule, Beth! I'll follow up with you after the holidays. Feel free to nag at me if I let this slide, but no worries - you're definitely on the schedule!

It took me a little longer to process and share photos from the Left Coast Crime conference than some others who went, but better late than never! I thought some of you might enjoy them, My summary and photos can be found at: http://bethgroundwater.blogspot.com/

Re: Please Welcome Author BETH GROUNDWATER!

Hi Becky,

LCC will be in Monterey, CA next year. What a beautiful place to visit! Here's the conference link:

 

http://www.leftcoastcrime.org/2014/

 

Also, I'm pleased to announce that in the midst of gearing up for the June release of Fatal Descent , the third book in my RM Outdoor Adventures mystery series, I received the cover art for A BASKET OF TROUBLE, the third book in my Claire Hanover gift basket designer series that will be out in November. I love the new cover, with horses to reflect the trail riding and hippotherapy topics in the book and red and green colors for holiday gift basket giving. You can see it at:
