Please share this newsletter with your friends. The more the merrier! 


I am currently working on Book 6 of The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series,
Christmas in The Sisters, and I need your input!

Share your favorite holiday tradition on our Facebook page and it could be featured in the book. Your post automatically enters  you in the Sweepstakes. Posting a photo will earn you a bonus entry.  (If you do not have a Facebook account, you can email your entry directly to me.) 
The more unique the tradition is, the better its chances are of making it into the book! 

wins a signed Paperback copy of 
(7" Display/ 8 GB), and A Texas-Themed Christmas Ornament 

Second, Third, and Fourth Place  will win an e-book copy of Christmas in the Sisters, for a total of five (5) prizes awarded.
Please Note:
Ideally, the Grand Prize Winner's tradition will be featured in the book,  but in the event that more than one tradition is selected  (or none at all), the Grand Prize Winner will be chosen in a random drawing. 

Winners will be announced on Facebook and notified by email. Please check your privacy settings on your Facebook and email accounts. We are not responsible for undelivered messages, blocked messages, or non-responses. To win the Grand Prize or First Place Prize, I must have your full name and physical address. For your own protection, please DO NOT post these publicly.

Winners will be announced on Sept. 5. If you are a winner and have not responded by Sept. 12, you will forfeit the prize and alternate winners will be selected. All prizes will be awarded when the paperback is available, hopefully on or before December 1. 

While I plan to continue The Sisters, Texas Series (as long as sales, interest, and the number of Amazon reviews support it **), I am ready to visit with a new set of friends.  I need your input to decide which to introduce first.

Series One, tentatively named the  20/20 Vision Series.

Former co-workers Landry Cartwright and Tucker Wolf are partners at CheckInn, an innovative new software system that caters to historical inns and boutique hotels across the country. Landry is blessed/cursed with retrocognition, a unique phenomenon similar to having "the sight". However, instead of seeing into the future, Landry has the ability to see certain events of the past. This 20/20 vision comes in handy when solving any mysteries and murders that might cross their path. (And with a partner as mysterious - and attractive - as Tucker Wolf, she's going to need all the help she can get.)
The first book of the series would be set in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. This spring, I visited Hotel Colorado and learned about its fascinating 100+ year history. Like Tangible Spirits, the series would blend part truth, part fiction into stories based on real landmarks and actual history.
Series Two, tentatively named  The Spirits of Texas.

Hannah's eccentric uncle gifts her with a unique present - a tiny little town in the enchanting Hill Country of Texas which recently went up for auction. The gift is meant as a joke, until Hannah suddenly finds herself unemployed. With nothing to lose, she decides to move to the remote area and turn it into a rustic resort.
To her dismay, the 'town' comes with a few unique residents, including three spirits from the past: a spoiled Southern belle, a weathered old cowboy, and a stoic native American medicine woman, all of which only Hannah can see. With their help, Hannah solves a series of mysteries and crimes, and finds herself at odds with the handsome lawyer who oversees the town's trust fund.
This series would be a cozy, with a light-hearted approach to ghosts and the spirit world. While the town would be fictional, the history and the surrounding areas would be real. (Much like Naomi and Juliet in The Sisters.)

Cast your vote now on  The Next Series   you would like to read!

**  If you want to see more of Maddy, Brash, Genny, Granny Bert and the gang, please show your support by leaving a review of EACH book you have enjoyed. Handy review links are included. 

I hope you have fun with the  Christmas in July Sweepstakes.
I'm looking forward to hearing how other families celebrate the holidays, and of course, pictures are always fun!

And please participate in the two-question survey, so I know which series to work on next. 

Have a safe and happy summer,
Becki Willis
