I’ve been Imprinted!

Or rather, my books have now gone through imprintation (which doesn’t appear to be a valid word, actually, but hey, what’s wrong with adding new ones to the lot?)

The Triple Threat Investigation Agency series—The Connecticut Corpse Caper, Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie, Coco’s Nuts, and Forever Poi—are now formally part of the Next Chapter catalog!  How exciting is that?  The P.I. gals (JJ, Rey, and Linda) and I officially belong to a recognized publishing house.  We’d woo-hoo, big time, but no one really does that anymore . . . do they?  Oh, what the heck—WOO-HOO!

If you have a second or two, dear friends and followers, we humbly ask (beg, plead, promise to be your BFF) that you visit one or all of the links to check us out.

What’s Wrong with One More Saturday Shameless Self-Promotion?

Gotta love those.

Hey, it’s Rey.  The Boss is de-stressing . . . again (poor thing).  So I volunteered to post today.  Topic?  An easy one—I didn’t have to give it any thought—coz the Next Chapter folks sent a cool email the other day. WPpromoA

The publishing company is expanding their book marketing and joining up with Prolific Works, previously known as InstaFreebie.  How whizbang is that?  Very!  Because this allows readers to claim a FREE preview—not the whole thing, folks—of Next Chapter books.  (JJ, Linda and I’d love for you to take a look at our adventures!)

Good news for you.  They’ve provided links to The Boss’ book page, so you can take a gander (an expression Cousin Jilly and The Boss like to use).  A favor from yours truly:  please check out the Prolific Works giveaways by clicking on these links:

 Forever Poi  https://claims.prolificworks.com/free/L9QLKnyk

Next Chapter’s super excited about this.  So are we!

Wonderful-Me Wednesday(s)!

It’s Linda on post patrol today.  Given “Shameless Self-Promotion Saturdays” is such a hit, I thought: why not have something similar mid-week?  The title, by the by, I can’t take credit for; it was Rey’s eager (insistent) contribution.

Given our illustrious leader is out and about today, the three of us—Rey, JJ, and myself—talked about what to focus on re “wonderful me”.  And who’d actually be “me”?   One of us or The Boss herself?  We flipped a coin, but lost it when it bounced over the balcony.

We opted on “me” representing all . . . the wonderful and increasingly successful Triple Threat Investigation Agency, our wonderfully challenging cases, and the weird and wired woman who puts everything in wonderful place (also known as The Boss).

Our fifth case is still being solved (we’ve got one heckuva villain), but the previous four are ready for reading, if you’re so inclined (we hope you are).  There are even two audio books—The Connecticut Corpse Caper and Can You Hula like Hilo Hattie?—which you may have missed reading about.  If you’re interested in hearing one or both, email The Boss and she’ll send you a code for a promo copy.

Here’s to a wonderful day from the wonderful trio at the wonderful Triple Threat Investigation Agency in very wonderful Hawaii.  (As my BFF might say, if you’re gonna promote something, go the whole hog.) WPwed3

Hear, Hear . . . X2

It’s Rey, hey.  How goes?  The Boss is still on stress-rest (can you spell w-u-s-s?).

JJ and Linda will be posting Saturday and Wednesday.  They’ve got good ones, inspired by mine on “favs” (when ya got it, ya got it).  But, for today, you’ve got a quick one from moi.  Consider it a reminder . . . a must do . . . ’cause you know me—Reynalda Fonne-Werde doesn’t give up easily.

As mentioned recently, The Connecticut Corpse Caper (the first in our Triple Threat Investigation Agency adventures) is available in an audiobook format through Audible … on Amazon and iTunes.  It’s narrated by Cindy Piller, who does an awesome job.

There are still some coupon codes to those who might be interested in downloading Caper (the code can only be used once via the acx-promo link).

Please message us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/OahuPIs/) or comment by way of this blog (and please specify US or UK).

We hope you’ll enjoy listening to what crazy—murderous—events at our aunt’s haunted Connecticut mansion encouraged us to become P.I.s.

Cheers!

And the Winner Is . . .

Me!  Hey-ho, it’s Rey.  The Boss needs some stress-rest (don’t ask) and told me to post (man, that gal can get pushy).

So-o, I had to think of something fast and fun.  Got it!  Sharing something personal about the three of us from the Triple Threat Investigation Agency.  I’m a “sometimes part-time” actress, so why not pick a topic close to my acting heart?  Films!  I thought I’d have us share our fav movies of all time—starting with my BFF, Linda, then Cousin Jilly—known to most as JJ—and leaving the best for last.  Moi.

Linda

Every new film I see becomes my favorite, to be honest, but if I had to pick one (for now), it would be Manchester by the Sea—directed by Kenneth Lonergan and starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams (one of my favorite actresses), and Kyle Chandler.

The story hit home for me.  Basically, it’s about a man named Lee, a janitor, who ends up having to care for his teenage nephew, Patrick, after his brother dies.  Lee suffered the harrowing loss of his children through a house fire that resulted from a bout of drunkenness: his.  Needless to say, he and his wife divorce.  There are more family dramas, shown in flashbacks, that for some of us, hit close to home (pardon the pun). WPfilmimbdb2

There are trials and tribulations, bonding and un-bonding.  I could relate to the various issues on different levels, given my own family history.  It’s not necessarily a “comfortable” film to sit through, but it’s so well crafted, so riveting, I can’t help but believe it’s one of the best I’ve seen in a long, long while.

JJ

I love old B&W gangster and detective movies like White Heat and Maltese Falcon, and action flicks . . . but, oddly enough, my favorite movie these days, one I can see over and over again, is The Descendants

It’s set in Hawaii, my new home, and that’s pleasing in terms of backdrop/setting.  The unhurried, strolling pacing is quite appealing and you rather wish it would go on and on and on. The film is filled with emotion; you cry, laugh, sigh, and express anger and/or disbelief, given the situation. WPfilmIMDbDOTcom

Based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, the story revolves around real-estate lawyer Matt King (George Clooney).  His mundane life is turned upside down when his wife ends up in a coma after being critically injured in a boating accident.  While dealing with her impending death, he must decide whether to sell the family’s vast land, which was handed down from Hawaiian royalty.  There’s also a wonderful, emotive re-bonding storyline with Matt and his two daughters.

I’ve seen it at least ten times and could easily see it another twenty—it’s that good.

Rey

Like JJ, I love old B&W films, though I’m more into dramas, those featuring Rita Hayworth, Bette Davis, and Marlene Dietrich.  They were gorgeous and awesome actresses.  If you’ve never seen Hayworth’s film noir Gilda, do it!

My favorite film . . . James Bond . . . all.  I just love the action and locations, the over-the-top plots, not to mention the hunky guys who play the lead role.  I’m not gonna reveal my preferred JB actor (I’ll keep ya guessing), but every one who ever played the British Secret Service agent brought his own charming spin to the character. WPfilmClipartPandaDOTcom 

You know, maybe the movies subconsciously planted an idea in my head about becoming a private investigator.  I always loved acting, but when we solved the “case” in The Connecticut Corpse Caper, the exciting world of private-eyeing (kinda like secret-service work on a less dramatic level) seemed the right way to go.

Can I share a secret?  I wouldn’t mind being a Bond girl. 

So, that’s my Saturday post.  Nothing “cerebral”, as Linda would word it.  Reynalda Fonne-Werde, at your service.  Have an amazing weekend everyone.
