Come Along for the Ride!

Join Beth on her book blog tour during the month of May 2009. As an invited guest on a dazzling variety of blogs, she’ll discuss her new book release, To Hell in a Handbasket, give behind-the-scenes glimpses of how the book was created and her life as an author, and answer your questions about her blog posts. You may even get a chance to chat with her protagonist, Claire Hanover, and other characters from the book!

Every time you comment on one of Beth’s guest blog posts, or comment on her blog during the tour, you will be entered into a drawing for an autographed set of both books in the Claire Hanover gift basket designer mystery series: A Real Basket Case and To Hell in a Handbasket. Good luck!

If you are interested in ordering an autographed copy of To Hell in a Handbasket, go to the website for Black Cat Books and click on the "Contact Us" menu option. Either call the phone number listed or fill out the form with your contact information and in the message box, say you want an autographed copy of To Hell in a Handbasket. If you need an autographed copy of the first book in the series, A Real Basket Case, I'm sure they'll fill that order, too.
