A spectacular necklace would draw people’s eyes up to her face, away from problematic body parts. She slid open a drawer in her jewel chest and selected a necklace with a dozen strands of tiny, robin egg blue faceted beads. Sparkle-rama supreme. Flouncy skirt hip camouflage with a glittery, upper-level distraction. Outfit complete.
-Excerpt from Pies & Peril
In Pies & Peril the main character, Amy, loves jewelry. In fact, she has a huge standing jewelry chests that is almost as tall as she is. While I don’t have a chest like that (yet!) I do love jewelry. The bolder and funkier the better. In my life away from writing fiction I also design beadwork, mostly bracelets and necklaces. My bead collection rivals my book collection. Unfortunately, there aren’t virtual beads so I can hide the e-version on a handy electronic device like I do books.
To celebrate the release of Pies & Peril, I will be giving away some of my beads to a lucky reader. Of course, I’ve turned those beads into a necklace that I think will match just about any outfit. Kind of like the multi-tool of the necklace universe. 🙂 AND you get a shiny new book to go along with the necklace if you win.
