Gayle-Carline-March 2017-022WHAT’S NEW

MUR­DER BYTES, the 5th Peri Min­neopa Mys­tery is offi­cially being book-ified, which means I will for­mat into Kin­dle, re-read and edit as nec­es­sary, then for­mat for paperback/hardcover, re-read and edit as nec­es­sary. Lather, rinse, repeat. It’s a long process to get all the kinks out.

When will it offi­cially launch? Not until Feb­ru­ary 14, 2020. I know, it seems like for­ever, but my pub­lisher insists on some lead time for pub­lic­ity. She’s quite the con­trol freak.

I’m excited! I hope you are, too!


P.I. Peri Min­neopa has had enough. She’s clos­ing her busi­ness, mar­ry­ing her detec­tive boyfriend, and set­tling down to a life of ease–until her brother shows up, accused of a mur­der he swears he didn’t com­mit. Now she’s back in the thick of things, inves­ti­gat­ing the death of an engi­neer who may have been steal­ing techno-secrets from other com­pa­nies. Her rela­tion­ship with her brother is an icy one, at best, and she strug­gles with her ambiva­lence, as well as her desire to leave inves­tiga­tive work behind. Dig­ging around in people’s lives is rea­son­ably easy, but when the bul­lets start fly­ing, will Peri be able to keep her promise?

Com­ing FEB­RU­ARY 2020


I had a ton of fun at the Pla­cen­tia Her­itage Day Fes­ti­val, but now it’s time to race towards 2020, stop­ping briefly for Hal­loween, Thanks­giv­ing, and Christ­mas. The next time I have excit­ing news will prob­a­bly be when I announce the launch party. We will have us Some. Fun.

On Sat­ur­day, March 21, 2020, I will be hon­ored to be part of the “Friends of the Shan­non Cen­ter Meet the Authors and Book­faire.” Their web­site info is up and run­ning, and OH-MY-GOD what have I done?

Look at this list of authors–these are big dogs!


I hope you can attend. It promises to be a fun event!


It’s drag­gin’. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. I’m edit­ing that as well. So, yes, I’m edit­ing two books. This is why I look crazy. I am crazy.

Tune in next time to find out more.

I did star in a commercial.

It’s about writ­ers, for writ­ers, adver­tis­ing the South­ern Cal­i­for­nia Writ­ers Con­fer­ence. We have two con­fer­ences, San Diego in Feb­ru­ary, and Irvine in Sep­tem­ber. Let this moti­vate you to check out the conference–I’ll be there, teach­ing a work­shop or two!


So go here (http://​gayle​car​line​.com/​a​-​m​o​r​e​-​d​e​a​d​l​y​-​u​n​ion/) to find out more about the book, and…

Go HERE to buy (this link will take you to your choice of Kin­dle or Paper­back) - https://​www​.ama​zon​.com/​M​o​r​e​-​D​e​a​d​l​y​-​U​n​i​o​n​-​M​i​n​n​e​o​p​a​-​M​y​s​t​e​r​i​e​s​-​e​b​o​o​k​/​d​p​/​B​0​1​D​3​M​M​Z9K

Life is good, folks!

That’s all for now, but check back when you can. 


BTW, if you want to lis­ten to me ram­ble aim­lessly about writ­ing, I’ve been priv­i­leged to be a guest on two shows. You can check them out here:

•  Gar­rett Miller’s Blogtalk Radio show, Rat­ed­GRa­dio. http://​www​.blogtalkra​dio​.com/​g​a​r​r​e​t​t​m​i​l​l​e​r​/​2​0​1​3​/​0​9​/​1​3​/​r​a​t​e​d​-​g​-​r​a​dio

• Jason Matthews’ Google+ Show, Indie Authors. http://​www​.youtube​.com/​w​a​t​c​h​?​v​=​9​y​O​T​9​Z​Y​4​TnA

The mys­ter­ies and humor are all still avail­able and sell­ing as ebooks and paper­backs. Take a tour of my author page on Ama­zon, pick out your favorite, and start read­ing imme­di­ately. Why wait?


Stay tuned… I’ll post more as I book ‘em.
