Hi Friends, This has been an extraordinary week and I don't know where to begin. My blog tour to 10 fabulous bloggers, who also reviewed the book, took place and the results were excellent. You can go to and see most of their reviews posted on the Deadly Pleasures page.  Also, last week, Deadly Pleasures was featured in the New York Times, Book Review section, as part of an advertisement by Rising Star Books of  iUniverse.  That was a thrill! And if that was not enough, I received a dozen copies of an inset in Publisher's Weekly magazine, devoted to Indie Authors, and I found that Deadly Pleasures had a small blurb in there and directions where to buy it.  My little book is surprising the heck out of me. One thing I know for sure, my husband Bill is looking down from heaven and saying, "Go Mary." I can never thank him enough. That's if for now folks. Something exciting is in the wind, so I will tell you all about it if it works out. All the best,
Mary Firmin
