Home > Columns > Pets, Romance & Lots of Suspense by Linda O. Johnston > For A Good Paws by Linda O. Johnston

May will be a good month for me.  It’ll see the publication of For A Good Paws, my fifth Barkery & Biscuits Mystery.  It will also be a difficult month, since For A Good Paws is the last mystery in the series.  The series has been published by Midnight Ink, which is going out of the publication business.

I’ve enjoyed writing the Barkery & Biscuits series and have also enjoyed promoting the books.  As I mentioned last month, I’ll soon be attending a couple of mystery-oriented conferences, Malice Domestic and California Crime Writers. I’ll also be signing at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.  And I’ll be doing whatever online promotion seems appropriate.

But all the time, knowledge that there won’t be any further Barkery books remains in my mind.  At least I’m not planning any, since I can self-publish, or perhaps find another publisher to pick them up, but don’t have any plans for either at the moment.

And—hey!  Here I am at A Slice of Orange.  Maybe you’d be interested in picking up a copy my last book in the series.  It’s a fun series, after all—about Carrie Kennersly, a veterinary technician who buys a bakery and turns half of it into a barkery to sell the very healthy dog treats she’s created.  Oh, and did I mention that it’s a cozy mystery series?  Carrie and her friends keep tripping over dead bodies, and she has to figure out whodunit to save herself and them.

Okay, I know A Slice of Orange also features romance novels.  Which is fine with me.  I’m currently writing four new novels for Harlequin Romantic Suspense.

More mysteries in my future, too?  I hope so.  But meanwhile, help me say goodbye to my Barkery series, will you?  Any suggestions?

In any case, it’s been fun.

Linda

  • Calmer Days of Writing…?

    If you saw my blog here last month, you’ll know that May was pretty busy for me. I had two new books published.

  • What a Month! by Linda O Johnston

    It’s May 2022. And it’s quite a month for me. I’m having two books published! They’re numbers 56 and 57, so I’ve been pretty fortunate in my writing.

  • Writers on Vacation

    Do writers ever go on vacation? Physically, sure. Mentally? Probably not.
