This week I’m excited to announce Leah Bailey is hosting me on Cozy Ink Podcast.

Leah’s helping me have a little contest. In the interview there’s a question as well as a question on Leah’s website and my Instagram posts. If you can answer all three questions, you’ll be in a drawing to Skype with me. It can be for your book club or any group you’d like. Come back here and leave answers to all three questions.

Here’s the link to Leah’s website. https://leahbaileyauthor.com/author-interview-with-jackie-layton/

Here’s the link to my Instagram post where I ask the third question. https://www.instagram.com/p/B–MiCcAJO8/

Thanks for playing!


Secrets Can Be Deadly

I’ve been writing for quite a few years with many of the ups and downs authors experience on the road to publication.

Bite the Dust is the first book in A Low Country Dog Walker Mystery series. Andi Grace Scott is the local dog walker and friend to all. She has a caretaker personality which is part of her charm in caring for dogs.

The series takes place in the fictional town Heyward Beach, South Carolina. The town consists of an island and extends to the mainland. I hope you read this series and come to care for the characters as much as I do. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/161194984X/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i0

Secrets can be deadly.

One steamy South Carolina morning, Low Country dog walker Andi Grace Scott discovers a client’s dead body. Police quickly decide she’s the prime suspect. Horrified, she knows she’ll have to turn detective if she’s going to convince them they’re barking up the wrong tree.

Proving her innocence could be a tall order. The local police never solved the hit-and-run that killed her parents; Andi Grace isn’t sure they’ll solve this crime either…not when they have a convenient suspect—one caught with the possible murder weapon in her hand. She’ll have to follow every clue and call in every favor, even if that puts her in danger.

If you love strong heroines, coastal small-town life, and dogs, you’ll love Bite the Dust.
