First Review of the Body on the T Audiobook

The Body on the T FC

 

The Body on the T,  the second book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series is now available in an audiobook version. Narrated by Frank Kearney it is a great listening experience that you won’t want to miss. It joins The Walker on the Cape as audiobook versions of this popular light mystery series set in Newfoundland, on the eastern tip of Canada.

The first review is in

A Cozy Mystery Series – At its Best

I was so pleased to find the second installment in this Sgt. Winston Windflower series.
While this 2nd book can be read (or listened to in my case) without the first, I do recommend getting to read them both.

The joy of this series is as much about the characters in it and how they interact with each other, both in their dialog and in the events that occur, than in the actual plot.

People love the audiobook versions of Sgt. Windflower Mysteries

“This is a delightful audiobook version which I enjoyed so much that I decided to download the ebook too. The combination of Frank Kearney’s excellent narration with Mike Martin’s great dialog really won me over within the first 5 minutes.”

“I love the story because of its simplicity but at the same time the mystery enough to make you continue hearing the book.”

“The Walker on the Cape by Mike Martin is a thoroughly engaging and entertaining narration that combines mystery, good old-fashioned police work by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and wholesome romance set in the beautiful province of Newfoundland.”

Second Sgt.Windflower Mysteries Audiobook is Now Available!!

The Body on the T FC

 

The Body on the T Audiobook is now available

The Body on the T is the second book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series and once again it is being narrated by Frank Kearney. Frank and I met through an audition he submitted to Audible when we were producing The Walker on the Cape audiobook. He nailed the accent first time. Maybe that shouldn’t be surprising since while he now lives in North Carolina he was born and raised in Newfoundland.

Darkest Before the Dawn wins the Bony Blithe Award

We are still pretty pumped about Darkest Before the Dawn winning the Bony Blithe Award as the best light mystery as the best light mystery of the year. As I said before, I was more than a little surprised to win. Mostly because of the competition. Alan Bradley who writes the fabulous Flavia DeLuce series with a precocious and adorable 12-year-old female sleuth and fun-loving troublemaker. Vicki Delany who is uber-famous as the author of 34 books and is currently writing three mystery series. Elizabeth Duncan who is a two-time winner of this award and who writes the coziest of mysteries set in Wales. Plus, a brand-new crackerjack author in Auralee Wallace who is destined to win many awards before too long.

Here is a link to my previous blog post on this and a new picture of the Bony Blithe plaque that was presented along with a cheque for $1,000. The money is long gone, but this will live on forever.

The Body on the T Audiobook

We are now in production for the audiobook version of The Body on the T. This is the second book in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series and once again it is being narrated by Frank Kearney. Frank and I met through an audition he submitted to Audible when we were producing The Walker on the Cape audiobook. He nailed the accent first time. Maybe that shouldn’t be surprising since while he now lives in North Carolina he was born and raised in Newfoundland.

The Body on the T audiobook will be released in early July.

Memories and Mysteries, A Windflower Christmas

Memories and Mysteries, A Windflower Christmas is a collection of short stories that will be released in September of this year. It starts with stories that were told to me about Christmas in a long-ago Grand Bank, where gifts were few and love was plenty. Days when the snow and a home-made sled was the entertainment and nights were filled with kerosene lamps and laughter. And the 12 days of Christmas were a time for family, friends and roving bands of mummers.

There are also stories from the streets of St. John’s in the 1960’s when Water Street was the only place to shop and stores like Ayres and Bowrings and the Arcade held a young child in rapture with the toys in the windows and the Christmas music blaring everywhere. When a live turkey and a boy with a giant bell called shoppers to the Mount Cashel Raffle and nights were spent on a hot, sticky bus to see the wondrous lights all over town.

The mysteries came much later but just like me, all of the characters in the Sgt. Windflower Mysteries loved Christmas and the enduring traditions of caring and sharing that they found in Grand Bank. Windflower, Sheila and Eddie Tizzard all had new adventures across Christmas time each year and they found their way into trouble and back out again. Always in time to enjoy the most magical time of the year.

These stories started as a way to celebrate Christmas with my family and friends. Now I will be offering them to you and yours. Look for it this fall and especially for Christmas.

New Windflower book this fall

Sgt. Windflower Goes Audio

Cover Walker

The Audiobook version of The Walker on the Cape is here!! The first book in the Sgt. Windflower Mysteries is now available in an audiobook version. Narrated by Frank Kearney it is a completely different experience. One you won’t want to miss.

Here’s a link to the audiobook on Audible and a sample

https://www.audible.ca/pd/The-Walker-on-the-Cape-Audiobook/B07PNRVCKV?qid=1552936232&sr=1-1&ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_1&pf_rd_p=65c74350-6dfb-47fa-85fd-1459a4762abd&pf_rd_r=6XRSJF47FWC783HG2CH3&

Some early listeners said:

“To hear the book read in a Newfoundland accent is a game changer. As a reader, I create visual images of what I read, as I read; a dream-like visual. Hearing it read this way connects it to place more firmly. For the dream-like visual, it is as if the B&W dream is now presented in colour.”

“I absolutely LOVE this treatment of the work. Easy to follow, clear and easily understood but authentic with its local narrator who clearly did his reading and preparation beforehand to get the phrasing as natural as possible.”

Book 8 in Progress

The first draft of Book 8 in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series is done. Put “The End” on it and sent it off to the story editor. Many changes to come but soon it will be over to the wonderful beta readers. It will be published in the early Fall by Ottawa Press and Publishing.
