Book Signing: September 27th!

by J.D. Shaw on August 19, 2014

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that the first book signing for ‘Body Bags & Blarney’ is planned for Saturday, September 27th at the Mad Hatter Café & Co-Op in Athens, PA from 2 – 3PM. For those you of you who have never been to the Mad Hatter Café, you are in for a treat! The food and desserts are so good, Vivienne Finch herself would shop there!


I will have copies of all three books available for sale with special discounted pricing for buying multiple copies. I look forward to meeting you!

T2C2 Convention wrapup and other news!

by J.D. Shaw on August 18, 2014

Hi everyone!


The Twin Tiers Comic-Con held in Elmira, NY at the First Arena was simply amazing. Although the paperbacks for ‘Body Bags & Blarney’ were unable to arrive in time for the event, I was still able to meet some familiar faces and quite a few new ones during the weekend event. Copies of both ‘Easy Bake Coven’ and ‘Yule Be the Death of Me’ were available and sold very well. What surprised me the most was how many people stopped by the table, pointed to the books, and told me they had seen them in emails sent from Amazon. Quite a few were shocked to find out I lived in the local area.

It was wonderful connecting with all the other artists and vendors that joined me for this special weekend event. Everyone looked to be having a good time and things flowed smoothly thanks to all the volunteers who generously donated their time to ensure that happened! I do wish I had copies of ‘Body Bags & Blarney’ to sell, but it just wasn’t meant to be this time.  We will be returning for this event in 2015 for sure! I am in the process of locking in some local venues for some book signings in late September and early October. I will post that information as soon as it becomes available.

I’m currently working on the 4th book in the series, ‘Trussed to Kill’. For those of you who have downloaded the Kindle E-book and read the coming soon text in the back, you know that it takes place over the Thanksgiving holiday when Joshua’s family comes to Cayuga Cove for an unexpected visit! Vivienne is going to have her hands full, that for sure! Look for that book to launch in March of 2015.

Thank you to everyone for making the book series a huge success!

Hello Everyone!

I am sorry about the lack of activity on the webpage. I hope to change that with the release of the 3rd book in ‘The Vivienne Finch Magical Mysteries’ book series! This one was such a joy to create, although it did fall behind the intended release schedule due to some family medical issues over the past few months. However, the Kindle Exclusive E-Book was published on on Friday, August 8th. The paperback versions are in the process of being printed and should be arriving for sale within the next 2-3 weeks.

I am in the process of setting up a few local book signing/meet & greet dates at local area businesses for September. I will be posting that information as it firms up. For those of you attending the first annual Twin Tiers Comic-Con at the First Arena in Elmira, NY on August 16th and 17th, I will have a table with copies of ‘Easy Bake Coven’ and ‘Yule Be the Death of Me’ for sale and signing. I would love to meet you in person, so stop by and say hello!

Thanks for your patience with the book delay. I hope that after reading ‘Body Bags & Blarney’, you’ll agree that it was worth the wait!

All my best!
