BOOK TOUR


I'm so happy to be a stop on the blog tour for
DOWN IN FLAMES
Book 6 in the Webb's Glass Shop Mysteries
by Cheryl Hollon


A fatal hit-and-run in front of Savannah Webb's glass shop proves to be no accident . . .
 
A highlight of Savannah's new glass bead workshop is a technique called flame-working, which requires the careful wielding of acetylene torches. Understandably, safety is a top priority. But as Savannah is ensuring her students' safety inside, a hit-and-run driver strikes down a pedestrian outside her shop.
 
The victim is Nicole Borawski, the bartender/manager at the Queen's Head Pub, owned by Savannah's boyfriend Edward. It quickly becomes clear that this was no random act of vehicular manslaughter. Now the glass shop owner is all fired up to get a bead on the driver—before someone else meets a dead end . . .

A Chat with Cheryl Hollon

LKBR:  Thank you for being here today, Cheryl!

Cheryl: It’s great to be here! I always enjoy your questions.


LKBR: Please tell us a bit about you, and your book/series.

Cheryl:  My husband and I have been glass hobbyists for more than twenty-five years. When I decided to write a cozy mystery series, the two worlds came together in a flash. DOWN IN FLAMES is the sixth book in the Webb’s Glass Shop Mystery Series. Savannah Webb is the owner of a glass shop and she teaches a different type of glass art in each book. As a subject matter expert within the art community, she consults with the St. Petersburg Police Department when a crime is committed.


LKBR: Any hints or spoilers you can give us about your next book?

Cheryl: DOWN IN FLAMES is the sixth installment of the Webb’s Glass Shop Mystery series. I am switching gears a bit and will be releasing a new series in July 2020 which I am very excited about.


LKBR: Have you ever written a scene that you loved but had to remove it for the sake of the story?

Cheryl: Yes. I had to remove a subplot that just didn’t help the story in DOWN IN FLAMES. I used it as the premise for a short story. I save all deleted writing in a scraps file.


LKBR: Have you ever gotten reader’s block? Just find it hard to get into reading because you are so into your writing?

Cheryl: Absolutely! In fact, during the first draft of a new manuscript, I read very little fiction. I concentrate on books about the craft of writing. During the revision phases, I read widely.


LKBR: Is there anything you would give up if you thought it would make you an even better writer?

Cheryl: I would give up almost ANYTHING! Well, not family, of course, but I’ve practically given up TV and movies. I strive for a better book each time.


LKBR: Any new projects in the works?

Cheryl: The first book in my new Paint & Shine Mystery series, STILL KNIFE PAINTING, will release July 2020. It will introduce readers to Miranda Trent and her Paint & Shine business in rural Kentucky—where murder lurks amid the moonshine and scenic views…


LKBR: If you could ask your readers 3 questions, what would they be?

Cheryl: How do you find new authors? How do you decide to buy a new book – cover, first page, blurbs, reviews? What keeps you buying a series?


LKBR: Where can readers go to learn more about you and your books?

MY REVIEW


With, DOWN IN FLAMES, author Cheryl Hollon has penned another wonderful tale in the Webb’s Glass Shop Mystery series. I never really doubted it would be great based on the first five installments.

Having started this series with the first book, it has been so fun and satisfying to watch the characters evolve. I have become really invested in them. I’m always happy to spend time with them, and a little sad when the book ends.

The mystery in, DOWN IN FLAMES, had me baffled. But after a certain something I read in the book (nope, I can’t tell you here), I had it all figured out! I mean, I thought I had it figured out. I was pretty sure of myself. But Cheryl Hollon didn’t make it as easy for me as I thought. I’m sure the dumbfounded look on my face would have been amusing to anyone who may have seen it.

The perfect addition to this series, DOWN IN FLAMES is a red hot read all mystery fans will enjoy!
