Josi Avari is a mountain girl who found the ocean. She discovered the inspiration for the Aloha Chicken Mysteries while on a writing retreat in a cozy little Hawaiian paradise where she met a feral hen and her chicks. 

Josi has a flock of her own, filled with zany chicken characters that flap and squawk their way into her novels. When she's not tapping out stories, she's tossing treats to her hens or creating scrumptious Hawaiian food in her kitchen. She has been known to chase down malasada trucks on foot.

To find the culprit--and the victim’s hidden fortune--Saffron will have to look in some surprising places. Even her new flock will lend a wing. 

With scrumptious island food galore and two handsome men vying for her attention, Saffron has to focus, crack a few eggs . . . and crack the case.

Weekly

The WEEKLY DEALS is a weekly digest email sent to readers signed up for the genre of your choice. This mailing uses a different sending engine than the Daily Deal itself, so some readers who miss the Daily Deal for whatever reason (spam filters, timing, vacations...) may get this mailing. (And if they get both, even better! we all know the data about how people often need to see things multiple times before they react...)

Double the coverage, double the reminders to grab your deal!

Mailing goes out EARLY on Wednesdays and covers that Wed until the next Wed. So if your deal is on a Tuesday only and you submit it the Monday before - that won't work for the weekly mailing. But if you submit on Monday for a Daily Deal on Tuesday, and your book is on sale Tues-Thurs, for example, then you're good - Daily Deal will go out on Tuesday and you'll be included in the Weekly Deals on Wed. showing the end of your sale on Thursday.
