Last Day for the Forever Poi Promotion . . . the Second for Coco’s Nuts

Ho-ho-how about a cozy (with a wee bit of grit) for the holiday stocking?  How about two?  Hey, it’s Rey again!

So, today I’m posting about two promos.  It’s the last day for Forever Poi and the the second for Coco’s Nuts.  Both feature three pretty private eyes—me, Cousin Jilly, and my best friend, Linda.

I’ll keep it short and sweet.  Both books are available for a $0.99 and free promotion.

Forever Poi has the three of us trying to figure out who set two trendy Chinatown art galleries on fire, and left a couple of corpses in the rubble.  There are a few suspects—like a self-absorbed gallery owner with a dicey past, an art consultant who’s as beautiful as she is dangerous, a risk-loving photographer, and an art manager with a shady past.

Coco’s Nuts has us aiming to prove our client, once-socialite-Vassar-grad-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer, isn’t responsible for two murders.  She didn’t kill her boss, an infamous entrepreneur, any more than she murdered her best friend.  Despite what the evidence suggests, we’re sure that Buddy’s been set up.  Then there’s super nutty Coco Peterson, who’s been MIA since the murders went down.  He’s a central piece in this knotty puzzle.  The cast of curious characters sure keeps us on our toes.  But we’re good at what we do, even if we go about things a little, hmm, differently from our fellow P.I.s

You’d sure make my-uh-our day if you’d give one or both a read.

Friday the 13th Double Whammy – LOL – Plugging the Forever Poi Promotion (Day 4) & Publicizing the Coco’s Nuts Promotion (Day 1)

It’s JJ today.  Like my colleagues, I’ll stick to the Boss’ post re the current promotion featuring Forever PoiBut I also have to tell you about Coco’s Nuts!

Let’s start with the ongoing promo first . . .

 The fourth book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series, Forever Poi—which features Rey, Linda and me—is available for a $0.99 and free promotion December 10—14.

To give you an idea of what transpires, here’s the Boss’ summary:

Novice P.I.s JJ, Rey and Linda have stumbled and fumbled [hmm, not sure about that], through two major cases with surprisingly stellar results.  Now, the trio has to discover who set ablaze two happening Chinatown art galleries, which left a couple of charcoal-broiled corpses in the rubble.  Any number of persons in the local art world could be responsible.  A cast of curious suspects includes a haughty gallery owner with a questionable past, an art consultant as treacherous as she is beautiful, a risk-loving photographer, and an aspiring manager with a dicey history.  Perhaps determining the reason will help: a major insurance pay-out, the ugly break-up of a long-term relationship, out-and-out evil vengeance, or a cover-up for felonious transgressions?

If you have family and friends who enjoy cozies with a little grit, then Forever Poi would make a nice little holiday gift.

And Coco’s Nuts is available for the same deal, starting today through the December 17, for $0.99 and a free promotion.

Here’s the Boss’ sum-up:

The Triple Threat Investigation Agency private eyes must prove their client, once-socialite-Vassar-grad-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer, isn’t responsible for two murders.  She had no motive to kill her boss, an infamous entrepreneur, nor did she murder her best friend.  Despite what the evidence suggests, JJ, Rey and Linda are convinced that Buddy has been set up.  Nutty Coco Peterson, who has been MIA since the murders went down, appears to be a central piece in this perplexing puzzler. As the rookie P.I.s strive to uncover a killer amid yet another cast of curious and unconventional characters, they meet up with old acquaintances who may not have their best interests at heart.  Exploding bombs suggest they’ve ruffled feathers by asking too many questions.  Hopefully, they’ll obtain legitimate answers before something significant blows up—like the Triple Threat gals.

Coco’s Nuts blends mystery, mayhem, and humor . . . and could serve as the perfect little festivities’ break.

The Forever Poi Promotion (Day 3)

Linda here.  Like Rey, I think I’ll stay true to the Boss’ post regarding the promotion of our fourth adventure.

 Forever Poi—featuring Rey, JJ, and myself—is available for a $0.99 and free promotion December 10th through the 14th.  You have a couple more days, but who’s counting?

The summary, per The Boss:

Novice P.I.s JJ, Rey and Linda have stumbled and fumbled—like Rey, I don’t think we did either, but to each his or her own—through two major cases with surprisingly stellar results.  Now, the trio has to discover who set ablaze two happening Chinatown art galleries, which left a couple of charcoal-broiled corpses in the rubble.  Any number of persons in the local art world could be responsible.  A cast of curious suspects includes a haughty gallery owner with a questionable past, an art consultant as treacherous as she is beautiful, a risk-loving photographer, and an aspiring manager with a dicey history.  Perhaps determining the reason will help: a major insurance pay-out, the ugly break-up of a long-term relationship, out-and-out evil vengeance, or a cover-up for felonious transgressions?  [We did have our challenges.]

If you know someone who likes cozies with a little grit, then Forever Poi would make a lovely little stocking-stuffer.  You could treat yourself, too.

Promoting the Forever Poi Promotion (Day 2)

Hey, it’s Rey!  I’m gonna stick to the Boss’ script regarding the promotion of our fourth exploit-uh-escapade-uh-case.

As The Boss tells it: novice P.I.s JJ, Rey and Linda have stumbled and fumbled [hey, I beg to differ] through two major cases with surprisingly stellar results.  Now, the trio has to discover who set ablaze two happening Chinatown art galleries, which left a couple of charcoal-broiled corpses in the rubble.  Any number of persons in the local art world could be responsible.  A cast of curious suspects includes a haughty gallery owner with a questionable past, an art consultant as treacherous as she is beautiful, a risk-loving photographer, and an aspiring manager with a dicey history.  Perhaps determining the reason will help: a major insurance pay-out, the ugly break-up of a long-term relationship, out-and-out evil vengeance, or a cover-up for felonious transgressions?  They certainly had us going!

Book Review: Forever Poi by Tyler Colins

by James J. Cudney IV

130225-130836

Forever Poi by Tyler Colins
Forever Poi, the 4th book in the Triple Threat Mysteries series by Tyler Colins, was published in July 2019. I’ve previously read the first three and was psyched to devour the latest one this month. Three smart and sassy female detectives run the Triple Threat Investigations agency in Hawaii, but the series started out in Connecticut and moved its way westward. What an exotic and thrilling location to set a murder mystery series… Ms. Colins has imbued the characters and setting with something exciting, vibrant, and unique. I’ve seen tremendous growth over the course of the four books, and the private detectives are learning on the job as quickly as they possibly can.

Today, I’m focusing on Forever Poi, where the ladies discover two bodies who’d been killed in an art gallery fire. The police bring Triple Threat in for assistance, quickly determining the inferno was intentionally set and the victims were definitely murdered. Unfortunately, JJ and her cousins had recently met at least one of the two lost souls, which makes the investigation all that much more difficult. The hunt for the killer or killers has the ladies traipsing all over the continental US, with a particularly memorable stop in Chicago.

Ms. Colins’ story contains a large number of complex characters, all with hilarious and interesting names. One if even called Crispy, and yes, that’s a connection with the fire. The three detectives are methodical in the search for all the clues and hidden secrets about the two men who owned the gallery and the seemingly disconnected woman Lolita who died in the blaze. We also learn about a death that occurred before the book started, but it might not be connected. Kudos to the author for layering in the details for readers to try to solve the crime themselves.

A few fun things to note, as these are the points that always make Ms. Colins’ books stand out: (a) the catch phrase ‘Hey-ho,’ (b) finding out the true meaning of ‘Forever Poi,’ which isn’t what you think, (c) someone else besides me says ‘Toodles,’ and (d) that totally unexpected scene when Cash (Richie J) returns to visit JJ. At first, I was freaked out, then I realized what was going on, but afterward, it started heating up again. I won’t spoil the surprise for those who’ve read previous books, but it’s an amusing one. The series is edgy but not over-the-top. Appropriate uses of ‘F Off’ and references to ‘Nudie Art’ make the characters and plot seem quite real.

When the key suspect in the crimes is presumed dead midway into the story, you’re left with a ‘now what’ll happen?’ moment. Then, the ladies find themselves trapped with the potential for a bomb to explode. It got pretty close in the end… but they always get their killer, don’t they? This was a great entry in the series, and I’m excited by the news at the end about the next book in 2020. It’ll be on my reading list. I hope it’s on yours too.

Forever Poi Promo Post

A quick shameless self-promotion post – nothing new if you’ve seen my recent Facebook posts – but worth mentioning (again) from this humble author’s perspective.

Forever Poi, the fourth in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series, is available for .99 through September 9th on Amazon, thanks to a New Chapter promotion. This case has private eyes JJ, Rey, and Linda solving a double-arson and murder—specifically, who torched two Oahu Chinatown art galleries and left two charred bodies in the rubble?  The trio encounters a sundry of suspects, each possessing a viable motive for having done so—insurance collection, unwanted lover, dicey past, sour grapes …?

The gals would love for you to accompany them as they track leads and clues, encounter strange and suspicious persons, and become embroiled in one of their most puzzling cases yet. WPpromo3

On a different note, I want to extend heartfelt gratitude to those who’ve provided me with much needed [I’m so lost] and much appreciated [I’d be lost without you] support and advice.  Jay, Jina, and Sean—thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

Forever … Floundering?

As you know, when it comes to self-promotion, I suck.  Big time.  As I’ve mentioned more than once, time just ain’t my friend.  <LOL>

That said, Next Chapter (formerly Creativia) has me scheduled for a promotion (.99 for Forever Poi on Amazon) starting September 5th.  That’s so exciting!

Consequently, I’m keeping this week’s Wednesday post short so I can scramble to learn/do as much as possible … which will be quite comical to see (of this I have no doubt).

Before I dash, I want to extend a huge thank you to Jina S. Bazzar, fellow blogger and author of Heir of Ashes (and other great books).  She’s always so very helpful and supportive. WPFPoi3 

 

Thank you, Jina!  And thank you, Next Chapter!

(I’ll get my act together, of this you can be sure.  It may not be tomorrow, but it will happen.)

Foever Poi . . . Forever Happy

The cover for Forever Poi is ready—thank you, Creativia!

The purple and red work well . . . attention-grabbing in its simplicity.

How do the gals feel about this one?  JJ’s likes the lips—they speak to her.  Linda thinks the colors and font are hot.  Rey loves the lipstick (a shade she’d wear in a blink).  As an FYI, the tsking and sighs have ceased; she’s officially over the fact she and her colleagues no longer grace the covers.WPForeverPoi4

When the last cover arrives, that makeover for The Triple Threat Investigation Agency Facebook page (and this blog) are gonna happen.

Speaking of happen, if anyone would like to help make this new book happen, I’d be very grateful . . . thankful, happy, delighted, grateful, overjoyed, stoked, grateful, indebted, and pleased.

. . . Did I say grateful?
