Announcing the winner of the Maddie Cochere Book giveaway!

Hello people!

Happy Thursday to everyone! I’m just doing a quick post to announce the winners of Maddie Cochere’s new book “Murder Under Construction.”


If you haven’t read that post, please go here. Maddie has a wonderful new book out.

As promised, Maddie is willing to give away three copies of her new book. I put all the names into a hat, (took me a devil of time to find a hat!). I shook it all up and let Sam my faithful companion dig out three. He’s really good at that! Didn’t even eat the paper. Good dog Sam!

So the winners are!

If the winners can contact me via email (jrpbooks (at) mail (dot) com ) and tell me which way they want to receive their books, either Smashwords or Amazon I will send a code out to them or Maddie will for your free copy!

Thank you to all the people who commented and read the post. Maddie and I appreciate it. I may even do more author interviews in the future! You’ve been warned!

Genre: Sad History (100 words)


The bell is silent now. It used to ring with every meal served at the farm.

Now the once fertile fields are covered in asphalt and concrete. The farm machinery long gone, sold to the highest bidder.

One little corner remains, an old farmhouse,  sad and neglected. Waiting for the bell to ring again and to hear joyous voices raised in cheer while eating wholesome meals laid out on long tables. Men, women, children eating and laughing before going back to work once again.

It was a hard life, but a fulfilling one. All gone, except the bell, waiting, silent.
