The Daley Weekly

November 17, 2021



I can't believe we are more than half way though November. I suppose it feels like the month has gone by so quickly since we were out of town for most of the first half of the month. But we're home now and settling in for the holiday season. I'm taking some time off over the holidays so I'm really looking forward to simply relaxing and spending time with family. 

Publishing update:
Gooseberry Bay: Santa Who? is at the editors and will be uploaded and made available in paperback and hardcover in a couple of weeks. A lot happens in this episode and we’ll finally get some real answers about Ainsley and Avery so you won’t want to miss this one. The Kindle version of the book publishes on December 14. The audio will be live around then as well.

Holiday Bay: Poison in the Pudding is live for Kindle, paperback, and hardcover. The audio is in review and should be live in a week or two.

This week  I am starting the main writing on Castaway Bay: Now and Then. I have some fun ideas for this one and am excited to get started. This book is available for preorder and will publish in Kindle format on January 25th. The audio will go live around the same time and the paperback and hardcover should publish a couple weeks prior.

I have two new books up for presale. Holiday Bay: Lantern in the Lighthouse will publish in February and Rescue Alaska: Finding Motive will publish in March.

For those of you asking about the next Zoe I moved it to July but I am still intending to do it. I decided to take some time off over the holidays so had to push Zoe out a bit in order to do that. I actually plan to get it up for presale in the next few weeks. I just need to work out a few details first.

Other items to look out for:
The new mini mystery for November has been posted. Clues will be provided November 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th so be sure to collect them all as you will need the clues from all four weeks to solve the puzzle.

Be sure to scan down the entire newsletter. There are important notices and links you won't want to miss.

As always, be sure to enter for a chance to win this weeks gift card giveaway. The entry form is provided toward the bottom of the newsletter. 

Remember, Rafflecopters are only live until the end of the day on Thursday. The winner is selected on Friday.

Petsgiving Feast
Ten friends decided to get together for a Petsgiving Feast. Each friend brought a different pet and each friend brought a dish to share. Fun was had with the exception of the friend who choked on a turkey bone, the friend who spilled gravy on the front of their shirt, and the friend who forgot to check the time and was late for work.

Use the clues provided all month to determine which friend choked, which spilled gravy, and which was late to work. A rafflecopter will be provided on November 24th for your answers.


Pets Brought:
Mini Pig
Gold Fish

Food Brought:
Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potatoes
Pumpkin Pie
Apple Pie
Cherry Pie 


Jeff, who did not spill his gravy, brought his turtle and the rolls
The person who choked on the turkey bone did not bring a pie
Serena who did not spill her gravy brought a mini pig
Donna’s cat jumped up onto the table but Donna still avoided getting anything spilled on her clothing
