No Toys for Tots is a Crime!

When author and publisher Tony Burton approached me earlier this year about participating in a holiday-themed anthology, he had a hook I couldn’t resist – all the profits from the anthology would be donated to TOYS FOR TOTS. I think it took me just a bit more than a nano-second to say yes and join 14 other authors in donating my time and a short story for this wonderful and favorite cause.

My contribution to the recently released Carols and Crimes, Gifts and Grifters is "Ho Ho Homicide," an Odelia Grey short story. Other stories include those by award-winning authors Thomas H. Cook, Chris Grabenstein, and Earl Staggs.

This anthology is the perfect gift for the crime fiction lovers on your list and, remember, every book sold translates into a toy for a tot.

Carols and Crimes, Gifts and Grifters can be purchased from Amazon.com or directly from Wolfmont Publishing.

I'm adding it to my Christmas shopping list, Sue Ann. Sounds like a fun read for a wonderfully good cause. And we all know that crime never takes a holiday....

Sue Ann, Nina and everyone!

This is Tony, the publisher, and I have to say that I was thrilled when Sue Ann (and all the other authors, of course!) agreed to contribute stories to the anthology.

The whole anthology is just amazingly entertaining (Can I say that when one of the stories is mine??), and I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Also, please be aware that your local bookseller can order the book if they are not stocking it, as it is available through both Ingram and Baker & Taylor.

Happy (Early!) Holidays!

Sue Ann, I'm more than happy to order a copy. Sounds like a wonderful compilation for a wonderful cause. "Ho Ho Homicide" sounds "Hys Hys Hysterical!"
