Launch (and Sale) of Dying to Write by Mary Simonsen — 21 Comments

  1. Hi Mary! So fun to see your launch and be reminded of the dear DS Patrick Shea. I read Dying to Write back in May. It is her best mystery yet! What fun to combine Mary’s mystery with our love for Jane Austen. I must say that I breifly thought that there was another one ready for us already. I set aside my disappointment by revisiting the story and encourage all to take advantage of the sale. It will be well worth it!

    • Hi Becky. What an excellent way to kick off a launch! Thank you for your kind words. I hope people follow your advice. I’m rather fond of this story.

  2. I purchased the book a while ago & really enjoyed it. You’ve created a good main character in your Patrick and the various JA conventionites were amusingly drawn.
    (I think you’ve drawn me in to try out the non-JA books in the series.)
    Best wishes,

  3. What a fabulous premise for a murder mystery! I’m off to buy right now and I can’t wait to read it. I’ve loved all your books, especially Second Date as the family was so like my own!

  4. I purchased it back in May but then had to buy and read the other three before reading this one. Patrick’s private life is as interesting as his professional life – in fact, I think I made a comment in my reviews about being disappointed not to read more of that in one of the books.

    • Hi Sheila. Thanks for the review. I did read it. It’s not easy striking a balance on personal/professional. I was criticized for talking too much about Patrick’s private life in the first book, but I thought it was important for people to get to know Patrick. I like Patrick so much that I could go on and on. I have another book in my head, and hopefully Patrick’s love life will improve. It was supposed to improve in Dying to Write, but the muses took over. 🙂

  5. Congratulations on the official launch of your new book, Mary. Thanks for telling us know why most ebooks sold at Amazon are priced at $2.99 and about the sale too. I’ll keep it in mind.

  6. Mary,
    I think by now I have all your Jane Austen ff books: among my favorites is Darcy on the Hudson. I have not read any of your Patrick Shea mystery series, but I will start with this newest one. Thank you for the explanation of pricing on Amazon; makes a lot of sense!
