Join the James Lalonde Insider Launch Team and Read My Murder Mysteries for Free

by | Behind the Scenes, James Lalonde Universe

Hello, Book Lovers!


There’s light at the end of the tunnel. Well, sort of; let me explain. The wonderful world of revisions and working with professional editors is under way for book two in my James Lalonde mystery series.




And, now I have a few important questions for you.



Do you love murder mysteries?
Do you love leaving honest reviews for other readers?


Why Free?

You’re probably wondering why I want to give my book away for free. I want to give away copies of the ebook version of my currently untitled book two in exchange for your first impressions after you’ve read the story. And, the subsequent stories as they are ready for publishing. All you have to do is sign up to become a James Lalonde Insider, and I’ll send you a free copy of book two on 1 August 2020. After you’ve received the book and read it, just hit reply to the email and let me know what you thought of the story.


Ideally, I want to know what you loved and didn’t love about the story. I will also let you know when the novel is available for free after it’s launched, so you can get a copy from Amazon and leave a review if you want.


Most importantly, I will thank you for your help in the acknowledgements section at the back of the book.


Become a James Lalonde Insider

When you sign up to become a James Lalonde insider, you will receive these emails:

  • A free early review copy of the books in my James Lalonde series and Rookie Reporter Mystery series (Suspicion and Duplicity, due to be published in July 2022 and September 2022)
  • Free short stories within the James Lalonde Universe.
  • Interviews with the characters.
  • Character artwork.
  • As well as other exclusive behind-the-scenes stuff you won’t find anywhere else.
  • And, I’m also thinking of creating an exclusive Facebook group just for you Amazing people who sign up.


Don’t worry, you will not receive all of these emails at once, or in a week. You’ll receive them slowly over time.


Suspicion, which is the newly revised and edited version of Missing (James Lalonde, Book One), will be available in July 2022 and Duplicity (James Lalonde, Book Two) will be available in September 2022. The Lawn is available to read, right now.
