Thanks for Visiting Me on Blog Jog Day

Thank you for stopping by my Blog! Please explore all this Blog has to offer, then jog on over to If you would like to visit a different Blog in the jog, go to”

I'm the author of the Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery series and this month have been busily promoting the latest in the series,Invisible Path.

Besides talking about my book(s) and what I'm doing, I also give writing tips. You can scroll back through this blog and find them.

I've been writing ever since I was a kid, but didn't get a full-length novel published until 1981 after many, many rejections. The two books that were published were historical family sagas.

Then I switched to writing mysteries and ran into more rejections. My publishing path was littered with obstacles from two of my publishers dying, a couple of crooks along the way, and agents who couldn't find homes for any of my works.

I've published with several small independent publishers and was one of the first e-pubbed authors.

I now have two great publishers, Mundania Press who publishes my Deputy Tempe Crabtree series and Invisible Path is the latest. Oak Tree Press publishes my Rocky Bluff P.D. series and An Axe to Grind is the latest and it is a finalist in the mystery/suspense category of Epic's e-book awards.

Most of my books are e-books and trade paperbacks and can be purchase in all the usual places. You can check out my website to see what all I've written and you can read the first chapters of most of my books there too.

I'd really love it if you left a comment on my post so I'll know you stopped by--and you might consider becoming a follower.

Be sure to go to the next blog This is fun, isn't it?

Thanks so much for stopping by our blog. Nice to meet you and would like to read some of your books. I am a huge fan of mysteries.
Glad to hear that you feed the outside cats and get them neutered or spayed when you can. That is so wonderful. Helps to keep some out of the shelters.
Take care.
Hi Marilyn, So pleased to hear you have done so well with your writing. Hugs...

Blog joggin a little late (finally recovered from that stomach bug). I started reading Lingering Spirit and already you made me cry! (sniffle)
If you'll click on the first link for the next blog, that one works, for some reason the one at the bottom of the blog doesn't.

Again, thanks to all of you who stopped by.

Jogging on, love the cover of your book here. I self-published because I didn't want to go through all the rejections.

Glad you finally found publishers who will work well with you! That's great!
Hey, Marilyn! I'm here for the Blog Jog. I was away from the computer on Sunday, so I'm catching up today. Thanks for visiting my blog FreakyFrugalite yesterday.

Thanks for the encouraging post, exhorting writers to persevere. I am a writer, but not an author. Maybe I'll write a book someday...
Thanks for this post! It's fun to see a little bit of your journey. I'm already a follower, and so glad I got to know you through Nevets. :)
