This collection of 11 short stories places women at the heart of murder and misdemeanors--in some they are committing the crime, in others solving it, and in some cases both. These shorts are by both established and new authors, and include:

House Rules, by Libby Fischer Hellmann: If Marge had known their trip to Las Vegas would break all the rules, she would have gone to the Wisconsin Dells. Her husband thinks his luck has changed when they find a valuable hidden cache, but when the box's owners come looking for it, it seems their luck has changed for the worse.

Crazy, by Laura Hartman: With a mother who is always just this side of crazy, a girl needs to stay on her toes.

Holiday Closing Alert! Memorial Day, 2021

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 29th-31st,  2021.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's just opening up!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed during The Plague.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, June 1st, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Hakima in QA, and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
