Congratulations to Eddie, the first reader to successfully solve the case in MURDERED!
The Amateur Detective Contest is now “Case Closed” but if you haven’t solved it yet, don’t worry. This book was meant to be lingered over and enjoyed. Take the time to smell the poisonous jungle flowers. There’s a lot more to the story than simply winning! Keep trying, and challenge your friends. See who’s got what it takes.
Congrats again, Eddie!

The newest Click Your Poison book, MURDERED, is available now! Check it out on Amazon.
Our Amateur Detective Contest also just kicked off, and the first one to solve the case wins, so jump on in.
3 Unique Storylines. Over 50 Possible Endings. Just one question… Could YOU Solve a Murder?
MURDERED is a mystery novel unlike any other — YOU are the main character. Follow clues, interrogate suspects, and piece together the puzzle before the killer gets away! It’s up to you to solve the case in this action-packed, dark and humorous thriller. Each link represents a choice, and the story evolves based on your decisions.
You’re in a dark alley, a lost tourist in Brazil, when you stumble across a woman’s body and a revolver atop a grisly note which reads, “PICK ME UP.” That’s when you realize you’re not alone….
What starts as an exotic vacation ends up as the opportunity of a lifetime when you inadvertently witness a man fleeing the scene of a murder. Work side-by-side with US Diplomatic Security agents (DSS) and Brazilian Police Officers inside the lawless slums of Rio de Janeiro — but choose wisely, no one is who they truly seem to be.

Ever read a whodunit where you outwitted the main character? Ever watched a murder mystery where you outfoxed the gumshoe? Grab your pipe and magnifying glass, super sleuth, it’s time to test your powers of deduction in Click Your Poison’s Amateur Detective Contest!
How does it work? MURDERED is a murder mystery unlike any other, where YOU are the main character and must solve the crime by making choices. To see what I mean, try out a sample here.
The Kindle edition of MURDERED released on Amazon on Thursday, 5 December 2013. That’s when the contest starts. One grandprize winner will receive the *first ever* signed paperback copy (the paperback release date is 12 December 2013), annotated as such and congratulating you on your prowess as a detective. You’ll also receive an autographed copy of INFECTED or a $25 amazon gift certificate (your choice) AND a collectible INFECTED wine glass (to toast to your success). That’s over $50 in prizes!
How do I win? The contest is simple. Once the ebook is released, the first reader to email me the correct identity of the story’s villain (along with your proof) wins the grand prize. That’s it! It’s a race against time to piece together the clues.
PS — You MUST email me the via the contact form. If you publicly spoil the story, you’re disqualified. Also, you’ll make me sad.
Good luck and happy hunting!

I just sent off the edited, final manuscript off for formatting. That means we’re almost there. And that means the next announcement will be a release date!
Drum roll, please…. Check out this gorgeous cover by artist Nikki Jansen (who also did the INFECTED cover):
Could YOU Solve a Murder?
MURDERED is the next in the Click Your Poison series, a thrilling murder mystery where YOU must solve the case. Interrogate suspects, follow clues, and get into (or avoid) gunfights, all in an effort to catch the killer. Think you’re up for the task?

Too cool not to share! I found this on Geek in Heels where it looks like it’s going viral. What’s your type? If you want to take the test, you can do so here.
I haven’t taken one of these tests in years, so I took it again and got INTJ… I guess as someone who plots multi-universe books, I probably could have guessed I’d get “The Mastermind.” What about YOU? What character are you?

Join us as we help San Luis Obispo get INFECTED!
Tell all your friends, we’re all dressing up like zombies and bar hopping downtown. This is not a sanctioned event by the city or any business (we’re going flashmob-style) so expect some shocked looks…
It’s Zombie time again! Last year we took the bars in SLO by storm to celebrate the release of INFECTED, and now the “second wave” of the Zombie Apocalypse is coming to San Luis Obispo!
You can’t keep a good thing dead.
After my last blog post I couldn’t help but think, friends are the best marketing tool you could ask for. It’s a funny thought, I know, but it’s true. Brian, the zombie pictured above, (and the groom in question) has been one of the biggest champions of my book and no convention can possibly give you more buzz than a friend who supports you.
Last year’s Walking Dead Pub Crawl was his idea, and while he won’t be home from his deployment for this year’s event, he’ll be there in spirit. And I look forward to standing next to him at the altar.
Please join us! I hope to make more great friends at this year’s event.
I promise to give 45% less creepy stares this year. (fingers crossed)
