Book #5 in the Ginger Gold Mystery Series by Lee Strauss has just been released at Audible: Murder at the Mortuary. Elizabeth has narrated all of the books in the series so far, and will be narrating the next two – Murder at Kensington Gardens and Murder at St. George’s Church – later this year.
Cadavers can be deadly…
Unregistered corpses are showing up among the cadavers in the mortuary of the London School of Medicine for Women. Unnatural deaths. Murders. The first known victim is recognized by Haley Higgins, a third-year pathology student. War-widow fashionista Ginger Gold feels a responsibility for the man’s death and is determined to find his killer.
Her pursuit takes her into the dangerous realm of the famous Italian gangster Charles ”Derby” Sabini. With the help of Haley and the handsome Chief Inspector Reed – an uneasy alliance – Ginger investigates shady dealings at the docks and at the racehorse stables. What does one have to do with the other, and how are they connected to the bodies piling up at the mortuary? Someone is working on the inside at the school, and Ginger has to find out who before she, or someone she loves, ends up lifeless on a ceramic mortuary slab.

Elizabeth’s latest Audible release is the second book in the Shards of Excalibur series by Edward Willett: Twist of the Blade. The first book in the series is already available at Audible: Song of the Sword, which has garnered very positive reviews. The remaining three books in the series will be released over the course of the summer. This wonderful Canadian YA fantasy series is a unique twist on the old Arthurian stories of Merlin, the Lady of the Lake, and the powerful sword Excalibur.
Having saved the first Shard of the sword Excalibur from Internet mogul Rex Major (aka Merlin), Ariane and Wally are on the lookout for the second. Wally is worried that the power of the first Shard is already changing Ariane, giving her the strength to do good and evil, and when she badly injures his bullying sister, Flish, it seems he’s right.
Meanwhile, they have a serious problem: Ariane’s located the second Shard in France. Sure, her inherited powers from the Lady of the Lake enable her to travel magically through fresh water, but it hasn’t escaped their notice that there’s a huge saltwater ocean separating them from their next target. And Rex Major is already on his way there.
As Major uses Wally’s doubts – and his secret wish to be more than just a nerdy sidekick – to cause a rift between the friends, Ariane takes the chance to go it alone. But if the first Shard’s power is barely controllable, how will she fare when two Shards are united? And what can Wally do to get his friend back?
Elizabeth is excited to announce the release of the latest book in the popular Alexis Carew series by J.A. Sutherland: Privateer, book #5, now available at Audible. If you haven’t yet listened to this swashbuckling SFF adventure series, start with Into the Dark, and continue with Mutineer, The Little Ships, and HMS Nightingale. Be sure to listen to the audio sample of the latest release!
Even with no war on, there are always battles to fight.
A cease-fire in the war with Hanover leaves Lieutenant Alexis Carew on half-pay, in-atmosphere, and with her ship laid up in ordinary until called upon once more for the needs of the Service. She was, at least, lucky enough to be in her home star system when her last ship, HMS Nightingale, paid off, unlike much of her former crew.
She’s left to help manage her family lands, though still with no certainty she’ll be allowed to inherit them. It would be a tranquil, peaceful life, if not for the influx of asteroid miners seeking their fortunes, the uncertainties of her inheritance, and the nagging certainty that her current life is not what she really wants.
She’d give anything to command a ship again.
