NEW 4th of July Murder Mystery Only 99 Cents!

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends and readers! In honor of this holiday weekend, my new book is only 99 cents! Also, if you purchase the paperback version, the Kindle e-book will be free! Happy Independence Day! Here is the blurb:

It’s going to be an explosive 4th of July for Detective Holiday. Detective Harrison Holiday has experienced a lifetime’s worth of violence and crime in his time on the force, and he’s had enough. Despite only being thirty, Harrison is retiring from police work to pursue his lifelong dream--of running a hot dog food truck. To say goodbye to his cop buddies, he’s having one last hurrah by participating in a theatrical reenactment of The Battle of Lexington at the city’s annual 4th of July celebration along the Missouri waterfront. Unfortunately, for a man like Holiday, murder has a habit of tracking him down--and when a local celebrity gets blown to kingdom come during the festivities, Harrison quickly finds himself dragged down into the crime-ridden world of murder once again.

Strange Brew: Available in Print and E-Book!

Hello friends and readers! N.C. Patterson coming at you today with the news that the first book in my new paranormal cozy mystery series is out in Kindle and paperback format! The e-book is only $2.99 and the print edition is $7.99

For a long time, I've wanted to write a mystery series starring a magical male character, so when my publisher asked if I wanted to do something in a "witchy" vein I knew it was a perfect time! This new series takes cues from the local area I live in. Based on local coffee shops where I go to write a few times a week, I can't help but feel a deep connection to the locations.

If you're looking for something a little different, with a male main character and a warlock instead of your usual witch, this might just be the book series for you!

Strange Brew COVER REVEAL!

Cover reveal! 

Okay, some good news today. This has been an announcement many months in the making . . . maybe longer. 

My first official paranormal cozy mystery is coming out later this month. It is a magickal treat about a warlock who runs a coffee shop with his orange feline familiar Tamsin--and they solve murders, of course. And don't forget his eccentric Aunt Theo! 

Cover design is also by me. This book would not have been possible without the help of Carolyn Q. Hunter, Summer Prescott, and Gretchen Allen!

This Month in Murder (April 2019: Part 2)

What's this? A second episode within a month? That's right! I go through so many books it only felt right to do a second episode. Depending on the month, I'll always do between one and two.

This Month in Murder is a video podcast (posted 1 to 2 times a month) where I discuss the books I'm reading, books I've purchased, and upcoming books. In this episode, I discuss libraries, book groups, and getting too many books from the library.
