BOOK TOUR


I'm so excited to be a host on the tour of
SWELL TIME FOR A SWING DANCE
Book 2 in the Tracy Truworth, Apprentice P.I.,
1940s Homefront Mysteries
by
Cindy Vincent


December 31, 1941. Young Houston socialite Tracy Truworth, Apprentice P.I., can't imagine a better way to send off the old year and ring in the new than by dancing through the night with her fella, Pete Stalwart. But a swell evening soon takes a terrible turn when a fellow dancer with moves like Fred Astaire ends up dead on the dance floor. And before the hands on the clock can point to midnight, a finger is pointed at Pete, accusing him of murdering the young man.
Then after Pete is hauled away in handcuffs, the night goes from bad to worse . . . and Tracy's sweet grandmother is accused of stealing an ancient artifact from the museum. Now Tracy must team up with her boss and mentor, Sammy Falcone, in order to find the stolen statuette, unmask the real murderer, and restore the reputations of those she loves the most.
Yet as America becomes embroiled in another world war, the risks and sacrifices intensify--even on the homefront. And Tracy soon finds her own home invaded by a near parade of questionable characters, while unsavory suspects lurk in the shadows, and a ruthless reporter makes her life miserable. With time ticking against her, Tracy must be willing to swing past the setbacks and hop through the hazards if she hopes to solve a mystery that involves a lot of dancing . . . and a lot more danger.


from Swell Time for a Swing Dance

Detective Denton fixed one of his cold, steely gazes on me as he strode closer. “Well, well, well. Fancy meeting you here, girlie. Let me guess, you just happened to stumble over another dead body. You’re racking up quite the numbers when it comes to corpses. We should send you over to fight the Germans. You could be Uncle Sam’s best-kept secret.”

His words succeeded in getting my hackles up. “Excuse me? But this is only the second dead body I have found. In a month. That hardly makes it some kind of pattern. And frankly, I had nothing to do with either death.”

“Yeah, right, little missy. You looked suspicious then and you’re not looking any better now. In fact, I’d say this is getting to be a whole new pastime for you. So how did you meet this poor slob?”

“I was dancing with him.”

To which the detective snorted. “Of course you were. And then wouldn’t ya know it, but the guy drops dead. So what did you do, dance him to death?”

I crossed my arms and tapped my foot. “No, but he practically tried to dance me to death. Or into the hospital, at least.”

“Miss Truworth is right,” Sammy said, taking a step toward Detective Denton. “I’ve looked at the body and near as I can tell . . .”

But Denton wouldn’t even let Sammy finish his sentence. “Oh, who do we have here? Sammy Falcone. My least favorite Sam Spade look-alike. Well, let me tell you something, bub! I’m a real detective and I don’t need any help from some two-bit phony gumshoe like you.”

Sammy chuckled under his breath. “Then by all means, don’t let me stand in your way. But if you try to pull a fast one and do something outlandish like accuse one of my young friends here of murder, then you’ll be dealing with the full force of the Falcone and Archez Detective Agency.”

“Falcone and Archez? Whatever happened to your old partner, anyway? Somebody kill him, too? Maybe you unleashed your girl Friday here on him.” He smirked in my direction.

Sammy’s dark eyes practically burned holes through Denton’s skull. “Last I heard, Abe Archez is still alive and getting three squares a day, compliments of Uncle Sam’s Army. He’s just waiting for his company to ship out so he can go fight in the Pacific.”

His words silenced Denton. Nasty as Detective Denton could be, at least he had the decency to respect the men who’d given up their livelihoods and signed up to fight the Japanese and the Germans.

Ethel, on the other hand, had no intention of staying silent. “Aren’t you going to arrest somebody?” she hollered in a voice that did not need a megaphone. “The girl didn’t kill him! It was her beau!” With another huge flourish of her arm, she aimed her index finger directly at Pete again, just as he walked up to join us. I almost got the feeling she had practiced the movement in front of her mirror.

“Him!” she shouted. “That man, there! He’s the killer. He was jealous of the other young man who was dancing with his girl. I saw it all with my own eyes,” she repeated.

I took a step closer to Ethel. “And so did I. Pete didn’t lay a hand on Freddy.”

Denton squinted at me. “There’s something about this whole mess that stinks to high heaven. Especially since you were right in the middle of it.”

Beside him, Ethel stomped her foot. “Arrest and incarcerate that man,” she screeched at an octave that I’ve only heard coming from an air-raid warden’s whistle.

“What the heck,” Denton said. “I’m game. Let’s sort this out at the station.” He reached for his handcuffs and grabbed one of Pete’s arms. “I’m taking you downtown for questioning, chump. In the meantime, I want everyone away from the body. Until my boys have had a chance to do their work.”

Then before I knew it, a bunch of uniformed officers swarmed in and took over the scene, while Detective Denton slapped his cuffs on my fella and began to haul him away.

I could hardly believe my eyes.

LKBR:  Thank you, Cindy for being here today!

CV:  Thank you so much, Lisa, for hosting me on your wonderful blog!  And congratulations on being one of the top 50 mystery blogs.  That’s quite an accomplishment!


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

CV: The Tracy Truworth novels are cozy mysteries that are set in the early days of WWII in Houston, TX.  People often ask me, “Why Houston?”  After all, it seems most modern fiction writers who set their stories in the 1940s choose cities like New York or Boston, or maybe somewhere in California.  But I wanted to do something different.  And since I live in Houston, this is also where I began my WWII research.  Once I started digging into things, I could hardly believe what I found.  It turns out that Houston was just teeming with wartime activities—from shipbuilding to pilot training to oil production.  And, we had German U-boats right there in the Gulf of Mexico.  Naturally, this was all great material for my mystery series.

And while I certainly have included the war as almost another character in these books, I still added a sense of fun and adventure to the mystery, to make things lighter.  So this series is sort of an updated flair of the mystery novels and movies of the late 1930s and 40s.  It was a colorful time before modern forensics, when fictional detectives and amateur sleuths had to rely on their intuition and people skills to uncover the identity of a killer.  Much like the lead character in this book, Tracy Truworth, the protagonists of those days were larger-than-life, the stories were not quite so gory, and the crimes weren't shown with such blood-and-guts imagery.  When you entered the world of a mystery in those days, you knew you were stepping into a fictitious place for the moment, and you could escape reality, rather than feel like you were involved in something that might be shown on the 6:00 news.
 

LKBR: How did you come up with the concept?

CV: I’ve long been a fan of the old mysteries, those that were actually written in the 1930s and 40s.  Top that off with a love of vintage clothing (I’ve been a collector for a couple of decades), and a love of swing dance and big band music . . . and well, I just knew that someday I’d write a 1940s/WWII mystery novel.  I’m surprised that it took me this long to get to it, but I had too many other projects going before this one.

Originally, I had planned for my lead character, Tracy Truworth, to be a newspaper reporter. Yet the more I developed my heroine, the more I saw that she needed a different occupation to suit her personality.  Especially after I decided that she would have been the type of girl who absolutely loved mystery novels, with her favorite being the Katie McClue series (my own invention and not a real series), who was also a larger-than-life type character.  Naturally, as such a fan of mysteries, Tracy would have been absolutely itching to solve a case of her own, so much so that she might even see a mystery where there was none.  So I gave her the dream of being a Private Investigator instead, with her starting out as an Apprentice P.I.  The series follows Tracy as she navigates a world at war, and at a time when huge numbers of women entered the workforce, generally for the very first time, as the men shipped out. 


LKBR: What are your future plans for this series? Any hints or spoilers you can give us about the next book?

CV: Ha!  I have so much material for this series that I’ll probably be writing these books for decades.  Of course, the romance between Pete and Tracy will continue to grow as the series goes along.  Pete still plans to enlist, so he and Tracy will be involved in lots of letter writing, much like the rest of their generation.  And Tracy will have to cope with having a boyfriend who has gone to war and is probably in constant danger. 

As for the next mystery itself, Tracy is about to get a call from her old friend, Olive, who is in big trouble and needs the help of Tracy’s agency.


LKBR: What sort of research do you do for your books? Is it more computer based or hands on?

CV: Some of both.  But amazingly, some of the best resources I’ve found have come as a result of scouring antique stores.  Not only did I find old magazines and books that were published just before or during the war, but I have also found a wide range of books on the war that were published in the 1970s.  Apparently, WWII was a very popular topic in the 70s, probably because enough time had passed to let people come to terms with what had happened.  Yet many people still had memories of the events, so the sources for interviews and information was likely plentiful.  Anyway, I now have a couple of bookshelves just brimming with books on WWII.  It’s actually turned into an amazing resource library.

Another great resource has proven to be old Life magazines.  Not only can an author see actual images and photographs of the time, but the articles are also very enlightening.  I’ve also found the National WWII Museum in New Orleans to be a very valuable and reliable source of information.  We frequently visit, and I learn something new each time we go!  (In fact, one of the giveaway items in this blog tour came from that very museum.) 

 
LKBR: What is your writing process? Place, time of day, by the hour or word count?

CV: That’s an interesting question!  Long before I actually type in the words “Chapter One,” I’ve written down my characters, clues, motivations, and plot-points on the four white boards on the hallway to my office door.  This is usually while I’m still finishing up another book. 

Then, once I get started and have gotten the first few chapters firmly under my feet, the book tends to take hold of me, and even when I’m not writing, I’m writing.  Meaning, I may have just finished a certain page count for the day, or maybe I spent a certain amount of hours burning rubber on the keyboard, but when I’ve quit for the day, in my brain, I’m still inside the story.  I may be brushing my teeth and getting ready for bed, but mentally I’m already constructing the next scene.  I’ve even had dreams about my characters.  When I’m back at my computer, I just try to get it all written out as quickly as I can.  Typing in the words “The End” is always bittersweet for me—I’m glad to be finished, but always sad to leave the world of my characters.  Maybe that’s why I prefer to write a series, so I never really leave my characters behind!


LKBR: What are 3 things readers may not know about you?

CV: I once figure-skated with Scott Hamilton.  Okay, let me clarify this, because it sounds loftier than it was!  I was in my early thirties and took skating lessons at a nearby rink, when my husband and I lived in Colorado.  One day, a few friends and I took a day off and went skating in the middle of the afternoon.  We were barely lacing up our skates in the outer room when we looked through the plexiglass window at the rink.  There we saw someone jumping and spinning with so much speed and grace that our jaws dropped.  Yup, it was Scott Hamilton out there practicing before an ice show that night.  We joined him on the ice, though we barely managed to remain upright, since we were so mesmerized by his skating.  There were only seven of us out there, and I watched him do three backflips right in front of me.  I was in awe, especially when we chatted with him, and found out he was a really nice guy.

Okay, now for a few less “exciting” things . . . I am a Christmas-o-holic.  Kids will come to the door trick-or-treating, and find me putting up my nine foot tree.  My husband and I turn our house into a winter wonderland, inside and out.  We put up three large trees on the inside and well, the outside looks like Vegas, thanks to four controller boxes connected to a computer.  You know those fanatical Christmas people you see on TV?  Those are my people.  J
I also love to do art quilting.  And I do mean “love.”  When it comes to art quilting, the sky’s the limit.  There is no right or wrong—it’s simply a matter of creating whatever kind of image or quilt that you feel like creating.  Then you can stitch it with thread—thread painting—until you feel like your wall hanging or your artwork is complete.  It’s amazing what a person can create with fabric and thread.  Here’s one that I made years ago that hangs on the wall of my office. 


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






LKBR: Thank you so much for letting us get to know you better, Cindy!

BOOK TOUR


I'm so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for
GLITTER BOMB
Book 15 in the New Orleans Scrapbooking Mysteries
by Laura Childs
with
Terrie Farley Moran


An exploding Mardi Gras float has got to be the strangest murder weapon scrappy sleuth Carmela Bertrand has ever encountered in this latest Scrapbooking Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author.

It's Mardi Gras in New Orleans and scrapbook shop owner Carmela Bertrand is excited to be attending the Pluvius Parade along with her best friend Ava. Carmela's ex-husband Shamus rides by the duo on his float at the head of the parade, when suddenly the revelry turns to disaster. Shamus' float crashes and explodes, and although Shamus escapes unhurt, a member of his krewe is killed.

Carmela and Ava plunge into an investigation of the krewe-member's death, but as they dig deeper it starts to look less like an accident and more like a murder....and Shamus seems less like a victim, and more like a suspect.


Lisa Ks Interview with Laura Childs,
New York Times Bestselling Author of
Glitter Bomb, a New Orleans Scrapbook Mystery.


Laura, thank you for being here today!

Hey, Lisa K, it’s absolutely my pleasure. This is the exciting part – you finish a book, it finally pubs, and now you get to talk about it!


Please tell us a bit about Glitter Bomb.

Scrapbook shop owner Carmela and her BFF Ava are excited for Mardi Gras. After all, what’s better than a week of parades, parties, beignets, and beads? But while watching the Pluvius parade in the French Quarter, the King Neptune float explodes, sending a plume of glitter into the night sky – and killing a local hedge fund bigwig. Carmela’s ex-husband Shamus is tossed from the float, too, but soon becomes a key suspect. Running her own shadow investigation, Carmela tries to clear Shamus while dodging the watchful eye of her fiancΓ©e Detective Edgar Babcock. Haunted cemeteries, a fashion show, sports car rally, party at the zoo, and hungry alligators round out the mystery – proving that New Orleans is a favorite go-to spot for visitors as well as readers.


How did you come up with the concept?

Once I stood on Napoleon Avenue and watched those enormous, sparkling Mardi Gras floats emerge from the darkness, I knew it was the perfect opening scene for a murder mystery.


What are your future plans for this series? Any hints or spoilers you can give us about the next book?

Glitter Bomb is the 15th book in the New Orleans Scrapbook Mystery series and it certainly won’t be the last. Right now, Terrie Farley Moran and I are just finishing up Mumbo Gumbo Murder, which pubs next year. And I’m noodling ideas for Cadmium Red Dead, the next in the series.


Is writing an energizing experience, or does it take a lot out of you?

I spent several years as an advertising writer/producer and then 20 years as the CEO of my own ad agency, so writing is basically my day job. It doesn’t energize me, it doesn’t wear me down. And as long as I write every day, the words and ideas (luckily) keep flowing.


Once you knew you wanted to be a published author, who was the first person you reached out to for help?

A dear friend introduced me to Mary Higgins Clark, who invited me to attend a Mystery Writers of America symposium in New York. There, thanks to Mary’s help, I was able to network with dozens of agents, editors, and publishers. Within 5 months I was lucky enough to nail down a 3-book contract for my first series, the Tea Shop Mysteries.


What sort of research do you do for you books? Is it more computer based on hands on?

It’s more like boots on the ground. I adore New Orleans so I travel there quite often. And since I have friends living there, I’ve been lucky to visit the float dens, attend a Rex ball, and even march in a Mardi Gras parade. The thing about the Scrapbook Mysteries is . . . they’re not about scrapbooking. The scrapbook shop just helps spark a lot of crazy events. The books are so much more – an exciting mystery, action that never lets up, the incredible food, the spooky cemeteries, and the historic city itself.


What is your writing process?

I always start with an outline on a huge sheet of paper. That becomes my basic timeline from when the murder takes place in chapter 1, to a big exciting ending last chapter that wraps it all up. Then I fill it in, adding characters and suspects, what I call “touch points” between my main character and the killer, as well as several action sequences. Then I transfer everything to my computer and rough my outline out to about 80 pages.  If that feels good, I go back to chapter 1 and just start writing.


How do you come up with character names?

I have a list of possible character names that I keep adding to. Plus, I read the obituaries. Lots of great names there!


What are 3 things readers may not know about you?

I love traveling to foreign countries (Japan, China, and Indonesia are faves), I helped with financing and marketing so a dear friend could open a doggy daycare and dog training school, and I have a penchant for really good French wine.

Thank you so much, Laura,  for letting us get to know you better!

Thank you, Lisa K, it is always a great pleasure to visit your blog!



In this installment of the New Orleans Scrapbooking Mysteries, murder during Mardi Gras is colorfully explosive and makes for a great read!

Author Laura Childs knows how to pack a punch into a mystery. GLITTER BOMB is exciting, fun, and at times, intense. And I’ve noticed a subtle change in the tone of the stories since author Terrie Farley Moran has come on board. It’s a good change. You can’t go wrong with two fabulous authors writing a book together.

Over all, GLITTER BOMB was an excellent mystery with plenty of twists and turns, as well as false leads to keep my inner sleuth guessing all the way to the end.

Returning fans of the series are going to love GLITTER BOMB. New readers will enjoy it as well and may become hooked enough to start the series from the beginning.

Profanity warning to cozy mystery purists.

She is married to a professor of Chinese art history, loves to travel, rides horses, enjoys fundraising for various non-profits, and has two Chinese Shar-Pei dogs.

The Tea Shop Mysteries - set in the historic district of Charleston and featuring Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop. Theodosia is a savvy entrepreneur, and pet mom to service dog Earl Grey. She’s also an intelligent, focused amateur sleuth who doesn’t rely on coincidences or inept police work to solve crimes. This charming series is highly atmospheric and rife with the history and mystery that is Charleston.

The Scrapbooking Mysteries – a slightly edgier series that take place in New Orleans. The main character, Carmela, owns Memory Mine scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter and is forever getting into trouble with her friend, Ava, who owns the Juju Voodoo shop. New Orleans’ spooky above-ground cemeteries, jazz clubs, bayous, and Mardi Gras madness make their presence known here!

The Cackleberry Club Mysteries - set in Kindred, a fictional town in the Midwest. In a rehabbed Spur station, Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here and this cozy cafe even offers a book nook and yarn shop. Business is good but murder could lead to the cafe’s undoing! This series offers recipes, knitting, cake decorating, and a dash of spirituality.
