I am the author of a humorous southern mystery, Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction. As an Indie author, I know how hard it is to get your name and your book out there. So I started this blog in the hopes of helping other authors promote their work. In the South, "a blue million" means a lot of something, or an infinite amount. I think the saying comes from the word "blue" being used sometimes to strengthen words, as in "blue blazes," or "talk a blue streak," or... "a blue million."
I live in Louisville, Kentucky, where we have a campaign called, “Keep Louisville Weird.” That’s simply a catchy way of saying support local business. McDonalds and Applebees are everywhere, but it’s the local businesses that give a city uniqueness and flavor. Local businesses are usually small businesses, with limited capital and resources. Not unlike Indie authors.
So I've started my own campaign called, “Authors Are Weird Too.” Everybody has heard of John Sandford, Michael Connelly, and Patricia Cornwall. They’re doing just fine on their own, thank you very much. But it’s the new authors, especially the new Indie authors who need support. I hope to do that on this blog. If you’d like to be interviewed or would like to do a guest blog, contact me at email@example.com and we’ll talk. And if you’re John Sandford, Michael Connelly, or Patricia Cornwall, I’d love to talk to you as well.

Murder & Mayhem In Goose Pimple Junction
When Tess Tremaine starts a new life in the colorful town of Goose Pimple Junction, curiosity leads her to look into a seventy-five-year-old murder. Suddenly she’s learning the foreign language of southern speak, resisting her attraction to local celebrity Jackson Wright, and dealing with more mayhem than she can handle.
A bank robbery, murder, and family tragedy from the 1930s are pieces of the mystery that Tess attempts to solve. As she gets close to the truth, she encounters danger, mystery, a lot of southern charm, and a new temptation for which she’s not sure she’s ready.
Available on Amazon and other online retailers.
