New Blog Book Feature -- CLOSE UP by Kit Slone

If you missed Kit's latest, here's a chance to pick it up for the bargain price of $8--complete! Just click on the BUY NOW button, and the ordering wheels will be in motion. If you click the image, you'll be zipped over to our online bookstore--still great prices, but they don't beat out the BARGAIN BOOK FEATURE price!

CLOSE UP is Kit Sloane's latest chapter in the the MARGOT & MAX MYSTERIES series...the one that gives us a peek at the escapades of that Hollywood power couple...Max, the movie mogul and Margot, tinsel town's most sought-after film editor.

Here's a blurb on the story: Margot and Max know how to cope with the murderous egos, high flying aspirations, and obsessive dreams of moviedom’s biggest and most revered stars.

They understand that, for some, Hollywood is a takeout heaven—send out for what you want and it will quickly be delivered. But what happens when what is coveted doesn’t grow on trees?

In CLOSE-UP, our daring hero and heroine witness greedy players scheming to cultivate their own needs and desires—fabricating fame, fortune, and unfaithful friends.

CLOSE UP is the ninth in the series, but no worries! Each title stands alone...you won't be disadvantaged if you are hopping in here, although you just might be tempted to go back to the beginning and read them all.

The Margot & Max covers have a story of their own...each one is an original illustration, crafted to suit the story by Kit's daughter, Annie Sperling who is herself, a movie business pro. 

A graduate in Art History from Mills College, Oakland, California, Kit has published short stories and many articles on the art of writing and the writing business. She served as first fiction editor for Futures Mysterious Anthology Magazine. She especially enjoys lecturing about the writing world and mentoring new writers. She is a long time member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and Mystery Women of the UK and was named one of Mills College’s Literary Women for 2007. Kit and her professor husband live on a small hilltop horse ranch in Northern California's sublime wine country.

Thanks, Billie, for having Close Up as the New Blog Book Feature. The only thing I'd add is that we belatedly stole (from Alan Cummings on his hilarious Masterpiece Mystery introductions) the last line for my synopsis, "Murder? Perhaps. Mayhem. Certainly!" It didn't make it onto the back cover, but I think it is descriptive of the story. Some of the more problematic characters are rather famous production types I met on set when my daughter was doing a huge commercial. They loved being in the story!

Marilyn and I are fan club members for each other. We never seem to get together, but we loved the times we were! Thanks, Marilyn!

Kit continues to bring us a fast-paced, interesting mystery, with great twists and yes - mayhem - along the way. I love her writing and anxiously await the next adventures of Margot and Max.
