Deb Baker's New Look

Blatant Self Promotion Warning!

Here's the new me! Am I cute or what? And as Hannah Reed I'm smarter, a better writer, and way younger. I am the Queen Bee. Yesterday, I discovered the first Queen Bee mystery is available for pre-order on Amazon. Kind of stumbled across it, which is the way we authors discover things.

And the cover design for Buzz Off arrived. Here's a sneak peek.

A little about it:
It’s September—National Honey Month—in Moraine, Wisconsin, and things are looking up for Story Fischer. Her messy divorce is final; the honey from her beekeeping business has been harvested; and the Wild Clover, the market she owns, is thriving. Life seems pretty sweet until her mentor in the honey business is found stung to death in his apiary.

Story is still trying to explain to the panicked locals that Manny was killed by wasps, not honeybees, when another body is found floating in the Oconomowoc River. This time the evidence points to Story’s ex. Sure, Clay’s a womanizer and a buzz kill—but a murderer? With the townsfolk stirred up against her honeybees, and a handsome cop—who also happens to be Story’s former high school sweetheart—putting Clay in cuffs, it’s up to Story to get them both out of a very sticky situation.


Now, I've always blabbed about the importance of pre-orders when it comes to an author's career, and I'm not about to stop now. Even though Buzz Off isn't available until September 7th, I'm going to offer you a sweet spring deal. Pre-order Buzz Off before May 1st and prove it by sending me a copy of the receipt - either email (hannahreed51@gmaildotcom) or snail mail (email me for the address) and you'll be entered in the May 1st drawing for a honey of a mystery prize. Your favorite brick-and-mortar bookstore will handle the pre-order for you. Or to order right now from Amazon (so you don't forget), Click here

See, I warned you about the BSP. So what do you think of my new cover?
