A Christmas Gift

Just for fun, I thought I'd give away one of my Rocky Bluff P.D. mysteries to one of the commenters on this post.

I've been busy with the pre-publication stuff for the next one due out in March of 2014: sending it off to be edited, going over the galley proofs, discussing the cover image with the publisher, and thinking up some new ideas for promotion. Will I do another blog tour? Not sure at this point, but if I do it won't be as intensive as the last one I did.

For the giveaway, the winner can choose which one in the series he or she wants and whether it's on Kindle or a trade paperback. (For the trade paperback, US commenters only.

The Rocky Bluff P.D. series is set in a small beach community in Southern California. The focus is on the men and women of the police department and their families. What happens on the job affects both. Every crime is solved, but what is happening in each character's personal life may and often continues on to the next book.

Here are the titles in order beginning with the first one:

Final Respects
Bad Tidings
Fringe Benefits
Smell of Death
No Sanctuary
An Axe to Grind
Angel Lost
No Bell
Dangerous Impulses

I've become so fond of these characters I feel compelled to write the next book so I can find out what is going on in their lives.


This is one of my favorites in the series--and I love the cover.

And if you check them out on Amazon, remember,  I write this series as F. M. Meredith.

I so enjoy learning what's going on with Gordon, Doug, Stacey and all the Rocky Bluff PD gang. Does Gordon finally find love? You'll have to wait for the next book to be released to find out.

You are a generous and warm person, Marilyn. I'm so glad I've gotten to know you. I'd love to win a trade paperback version of Angel Lost. Great cover, BTW. Thanks for being a guest on my blog. When your new novel is released, I'd like to invite you back. Meanwhile, have a very Merry Christmas.

One of he greatest blessing of the Internet is the chance to make new friends. And Evelyn, even though we've never met in person, I feel like we know one another.

My first comment is that I have lived in the North East of the US all my life, so Christmas to me IS usually a cold and white Christmas most years. That is what I conjure up in my mind when I hear Christmas mentioned, and the one year we spent in Florida with my parents it definitely did not seem like our kind of Christmas that year. It is all what you get used to I know.

Next. Sorry to report that I have not ever read any of your books Marilyn, but I definitely love police and mystery stories so would absolutely love to be the recipient of any one of the books you have offered on your giveaway. I would definitely prefer a print copy if I were to win. Thank you for reading this and for the giveaway. Would be happy to see my name listed as having won, that is for sure.

Very pleased to read this blog about you tonight.
