Interview & Book Giveaway with Deborah Malone Author of Murder in Marietta


I'm honored to have author Deborah Malone visiting today. Deborah's book Murder in Marietta is the topic of our discussion. Be sure to read all the way down and enter our free book giveaway.


What is the full name of your book and who is it published by?
“Murder in Marietta” is the second book in The Trixie Montgomery Cozy Mystery Series. It is published by Lamp Post Publishing.

  
Give us a short summary. 
Murder in Marietta follows historical magazine writer Trixie
Montgomery on her latest assignment that can make or break her
her new career. The Marietta History Museum’s resident ghosts
are stirring up trouble in historic downtown Marietta, Georgia. Trixie begs her best friend to come along.  Their plans to research the spooky sightings vanish into thin air when a dead body is discovered in the museum. The director of the museum and her boss’ friend, Doc Pennington, shoots to the top of the suspect list when his fingerprints are the only ones found on the murder weapon, a civil war rifle. Unwilling to risk losing her boss’s faith in her journalistic abilities, Trixie and Dee Dee offer to help sniff out the real culprit only to wind up in hot water when they are kidnapped by the real killers. Will they be rescued in time?

How did you arrive at the idea for your book?
I’ve always loved cozy mysteries. So it was natural for me to write a cozy. I’ve written for “Georgia Backroads” a historical magazine for 10 years and had written about Marietta in some of my articles. I loved the area so decided to use it as the setting for this book.

What kind of books do you like to read?
I love this question. I used to only read mysteries. But when I started a blog of my own where I have interviews for Christian Fiction I started reading other genres. I found out I loved reading about other times and places. I read just about anything now.

Could you share a writing tip for writers?
The most important for a starting writer would be to get it down on paper – write, write, write. You can always go back and learn more about editing. If you don’t write then there is nothing to edit.

Where can people purchase your book?
They can email me by going to my website at www.deborah-malone.com and I’ll send them a signed copy. You can also get it at www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com
Thank you for having me as a guest on your blog.
