One of My Favorite Bookselling Events

Last year, a craft fair vendor suggested that I sell my books at a winery. A winery? But my mysteries have nothing to do with wine. She assured me it didn’t matter, and she was right.

Art on the Vine-2

This past Sunday, I spent the day at Township 7’s “Art on the Vine” event. Despite the heat, people came to listen to music, drink wine, and support local artists. Sitting in front of the vines and drinking wine while I chatted with customers was one of the most relaxing and fun bookselling experiences I’ve had.

By the way, Township 7 also has a  winery along Penticton BC’s Naramata Bench, and they also hold Art on the Vine days, along with other events. Check them out HERE.

Imajin Dead Man Floating Qwickie
Evan Dunstan, Mystery #1

One wrong decision… 

Security guard Evan Dunstan didn’t expect to find a body floating in a campus stream. An empty vodka bottle nearby suggests that the highly despised George Krenn, head of the plumbing department, had drunkenly fallen in. Refusing to let the death of a vile man ruin his romantic plans, Evan decides to leave the body for the next shift to find.

One friend in trouble…

When it’s discovered that Krenn was murdered, Evan has a lot of explaining to do. So does his friend Sully, Krenn’s least favourite student. Evan uses his hacking skills and campus knowledge to keep them both out of jail, but the investigation forces him to question Sully’s innocence.

One mystery to solve…

Uncovering the truth proves to be more than challenging. It may cost Evan his job, his friendship, and his woman. Will Evan find the killer, or will the killer find him first?
