Call for Deadwood Deputies — Tequila & Time Promo Team

Tequila is a slippery devil …
Tequila is a slivvery depil …
Tequila issa slipperppery debil … depil …

TEQUILA & TIME! My latest short story (#4) in the Deadwood Mystery Series is available for pre-order on Amazon. While we are waiting for the release on January 25, 2017 I am looking for Deadwood Deputies and wanna-be Deadwood Deputies and thinking-about-it Deadwood Deputies:

IF YOU WANT TO SIGN UP to be a Deadwood Deputy and help me out with telling the world about Violet and Natalie’s hilarious new tale (and be eligible to win a prize), now is the time.

All you have to do is send me an email by January 31, 2017 with your name and mailing address to with the following in the subject line: Deadwood Deputy for T&T. Instructions will be emailed starting on January 27, 2017.

Now, where did I leave that bottle of Tequila? …… <3 Ann

Tequila & Time —It’s Prize time!

First and foremost—YOU ARE AWESOME! 


Thank you for helping me to promote Tequila & Time to the rest of the reading world.

There have been so many great comments and reviews posted out there for everyone to see about this secret-revealing story. I appreciate your time and words from the bottom of my tequila-soaked heart. Your help as a Deadwood Deputy is an important part of the book release process. Time and again I have authors ask me how I am able to acquire so many reviews and get word out far and wide about my books. I tell them that I couldn’t do it without my kick-ass deputies. You are the best!

Now for the fun stuff …


The following names were randomly drawn for the Tequila & Time prizes as a thank you for your kindness and generosity. Everyone who signed up to help will receive a personal Thank-You card with a small autographed gift enclosed as well. If you didn’t win one of the prizes below, there will be another opportunity soon—the 2nd book in my Dig Site series, Make No Bones About It, starring Violet’s brother (Quint) will be out at the end of March/early April. We’ll be gathering folks who want to party and promote again in March. Stay tuned.

    I’ve worked in security for over 28 years and carried a badge. I’m ready to carry another one!

  24. Dian Brady says:

    Very encouraging! I’ve been waiting with “worms on my tongue” (baited breath) for Natalie and Coop to get together. Make No Bones About It can’t come out soon enough. I recommended the Deadwood series to a friend and she read all of them in less than 3 months so now she’s started on the Jackalope series.

  25. Shaunna Bowen says:

    For some reason, I can’t send my email? It keeps coming back saying no user found.
    P.S. I LOVE your books and can’t wait for more! I found you a little late ( 7 Deadwood books out) but flew through the entire series, and the shorts, and Jackrabbit Junction too! Keep going please! (That’s desperation in my voice if you couldn’t tell)

  26. Michelle Parker says:

    What can I say that I haven’t already. These books this author have been great. Never a dull moment never a time where she can’t take the time to answer her readers either. Not only are her books great stories that have laughing out loud but the books covers are dead right on lol.

  27. Kim says:

    I’m ready to be deputized.

  28. Joyce Harper says:

    That was the easiest review to leave at Barnes & Noble.
