Periodic News

I understand that you're on a writing deadline, but I was just wondering when your 1st E-newsletter will be sent. Rosa
February 21, 2011

Newsletter

Thanks, Cleo, I will do so and look forward to your Newsletters. I absolutely love all of your books, and have read all of them so far. I look forward to MURDER BY MOCHA. Your recipes are the best! Boy oh boy, IF I get an email from you telling me I won some coffee, I will be SURE to reply STAT! V Weseloh Watertown SD
February 21, 2011

Link for Newsletter

I have clicked on other links and they work fine, but I cannot seem to get signed up for your Newsletters. V Weseloh Watertown SD

Cleo's reply - Hi there. Actually, all you have to do is send an e-mail that says "sign me up" to VillagBlend@aol.com  You will then receive an automatic reply, which will confirm to you that you are all signed up for my weekly free coffee drawings.

A winner of free coffee is selected at random every week from this list, which also subscribes you to my free E-newseltter. The newsletter only comes out a few times a year. Just be sure to give me an active e-mail box -- one that you check every so often. I've had several winners who never replied to my notifying e-mails and that's too bad. They lost!

You'll only win coffee from me if you reply to my e-mail informing you that you've won this week's drawing. I won't send to any address unless I get a confirmation from the winner via e-mail first.

I hope that helps you.

Wishing you java joy!
~ Cleo

Recipes?

Have you thought about compiling a recipe book to publish? It would be great as the "Coffee House/Haunted House Cook Book". Anita

 

Cleo's reply:  Hi Anita, thank you for dropping by my *virtual* coffeehouse. That's a wonderful idea. Maybe someday! Right now my writing schedule won't allow that, but it would be a fun idea for the future. Thank you for suggesting it, and thank you especially for reading my books. It's the best gift you can give to any author.

Cook with joy,
~ Cleo

 


February 9, 2011

Yay!

Thanks for the reply! I can eagerly anticipate in peace now! :) Jack-Alice(Cleo) is already on a writing deadline and she doesn't need more stress coming from you. You need to let her work in peace and harmony and at her own pace. So, here's 20 dollars. Go to a bar and buy yourself as many drinks as you can with the 20 dollars....Oh wait, you can't with or without Pen and that buffalo nickel can you? You can only go out on the town only in Pen's dreams, right? Hahaha! That's too bad for you and you're lucky that I'm "calling" the police on you for breaking and entering in my home. Alice(Cleo)-I know for a fact that I'm the only one in my home that has read your Haunted Bookshop Mystery Series. There was a time when I went on my dad's computer to check my email and I noticed right away that at the bottom of the screen by the start menu was a tab for this website. And I know that I didn't go on this website the night before. I think Jack somehow, I don't know how, was responsible. You need to keep a tighter leash on Jack and make sure he doesn't do it again. LOL!!!!

Alice (Cleo) the message above is from me.

February 9, 2011

OMG

I LOVE this website!! I have not read any of your books, but after reading the reviews on Amazon, I have ordered the first one from my library and bookmarked the rest!!

 

Cleo's reply - Why thank you! And welcome to my virtual coffeehouse. I hope you enjoy your trip to my fictional shop in the Coffeehouse Mystery book that you're about to read.

Come on back anytime. I post recipes often and enjoy talking here with my readers. We'll have a hot cup o' joe waiting for you.

Cheers!

title

I love the title of the new book. Can't wait to read it. But in the meantime, I want to make the chocolate covered cinnamon sticks this weekend. Thanks for a great idea.

 

Cleo's reply - Oh, you made my morning! I'm so glad you like the title (Murder by Mocha) and are anticipating the book's release. This one was a lot of fun to write -- I can only hope you find it as much fun to read.

Alice

Just wanted to say thank you for your's and Jack's response to my post on Feb.3. My daughter was so excited that she went to school today and told her teacher that she and her mom got a reply from an author and a ghost that said she was "cute as button" you made her day.:) Thank you again

 


Cleo's reply -

Oh, that's wonderful! You just made MY day! Hey, I told Jack. He laughed. Then he said...


Hey, baby, maybe I should tell Pen to call up that cute little girl for a...(what does your generation call a rendezvous with the sandbox set - oh, yeah, a playdate). Pen's tike Spencer would probably like that...

 

Jack, Pen and Spencer are fictional characters and this little girl is real, so that won't work. Besides, Spencer is way too old for "playdates," but it's a nice thought.

 

Okey-doke. I guess they'll just have to read about Pen and Spence in your books...and see me in their dreams, just like Pen...

 

Thanks, Jack. I'll let them know. :)

It is the recipe for the DATE AND WALNUT LOAF/CAKE cAN YOU HELP PLEASE.. Take Care

Anonymous 2

 

Cleo's Reply:

My goodness, A2, I'm so sorry, but (honestly) I don't even like date and walnut cake! I'm working on a lovely new coffee cake recipe right now, and a recipe for mini-cakes, but none of them are a date and walnut loaf cake and those recipes are not yet ready for me to post publicly. Again, I'm so sorry! Stay tuned for more cakes in the future on this site. In the meantime...

Jack and Pen 2012

hi. i know that the next Jack and Pen mystery is coming out next in January 2012, and i was wondering if you knew exactly what day it'll come out so i know when to look for it.

Rosa

 

 

For the general public: Rosa is asking about the next book in The Haunted Bookshop series, which Cleo Coyle writes as Alice Kimberly. The first book in this series is pictured right. Find out more about this series by jumping to the Haunted Bookshop page of this site by clicking here.

 

Cleo (Alice's) Reply --

Hi Rosa - The first Tuesday in January 2012. Whatever that might be. But that's a long way off and can still change. Make sure you subscribe to my E-newsletter. I will try to get a few out this year and as the year progressses, I'll have updates on Jack and Pen...and make sure you know when their new book is hitting the store shelves (and E-reader market)! Cheers and thank you so much for caring so much. It means a lot to me. ~ Cleo (Alice)

Kindle availability in EUrope

Hi Just wondering when,if and why the 1st 2 mysteries are available to Kindle in Europe not 3,4 but then 5 and 6... Sorta wanted to read in order and would like them on my Kindle-will this ever be possible?

I meant the coffeehouse mysteries,sorry for the lack of clarity.

  

 French Pressed:
Coffeehouse Mystery #6

#1 Paperback Bestseller,
Independent Mystery
Booksellers Association

 

 

Cleo's reply:

You're right. While this series can be enjoyed out of order, my longtime readers tell me they've gotten lots of pleasure out of following the character arcs from book to book (and watching Clare's romantic life progress) by reading the series in order. I wish I had a good answer to your question. I'm sorry that I do not. As a consumer, I will simply suggest that you click over to Amazon's USA URL (web address) and download from that site. Below is the URL to get you started, and I hope that helps because I have no other answer.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=cleo+coyle

I know this next suggestion will sound like lame corporate-speak, but maybe you should contact Amazon Euorpe customer service and request that they carry the books you want. A request from a single consumer might not mean anything to them. But, for all we know, there are many more readers like you out there, making that request. (One can only hope!)

Cheers and...
thanks sincerely for your interest!
~ Cleo

Excited in Colorado Springs, CO

Hello, Cleo we just found out that you have a new McClure mystery coming out in March. My Mom and I have read all the other ones. Our family went through a really difficult time and your books were a great help and outlet. I never thought about Googling you. I'm so happy we finally did. Can't wait for the new one.

 

Cleo's reply: Hang in there! The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller will be coming out next year at this time. Click here and scroll down to learn more...

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe?

Hi Cleo!

Just wondering if you happen to have a favorite oatmeal raisin cookie recipe..have made the Neiman Marcus cookie recipe and it was a big hit!! Many thanks, Laura

 

Cleo's reply: 

Thanks, Laura! Indeed I do have a favorite recipe. It's a healthier version of the typical oatmeal cookie. I reduce the flour, using more oatmeal by creating oatmeal flour (very easy to do using a blender, just see the recipe on that). I also cut the sugar and the fat, replacing part of the usual butter with applesauce, which brings a lovely apple flavor note to blend with the oats and raisins. AND I glaze them with a bit of my maple glaze. These are outstanding with a hot cup of joe. I hope you enjoy them as much as the Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies.

 

 To get my "Healthier Oatmeal Cookie" recipe CLICK HERE, the document will appear in a free, illustrated PDF that you can print, save, or share.

Alice

Hi Alice, Last night while still snowed in, I finished a book I started reading earlier in the week. I then went to amazon.com and downloaded The Ghost and Mrs. MCClure. It is absolutely wonderful!!!!! I started reading it aloud to my 11 year old and even SHE loved it. I started that one only because I only have 2 of the Coffeehouse Mysteries to read before I finish the series and I always like to save the best til last....one problem I may never finish either series if I do that since BOTH series are WONDERFUL!!!!! :)

 

CLEO'S (ALICE'S) REPLY: Thank you! You made my week with that message. The writing life has its ups and down but readers like you (and your daughter!!) make the downs worth working through. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to let me know. It truly means a lot to me.

     Wait! The ghost of Jack is in my ear. What's that, Jack? He has a message for you. I'll type it up... 

 

You're aces, baby. Thanks for droppin' by my joint and cheerin' up the dame who scribbles my stories. Oh, and thank that cute-as-a-button daughter of yours, too. Nice to know I have a fan in the next generation (of the living). Drop back anytime. Till then, stay out of trouble. From what I can see, you air-breathers seem to get into plenty...

 

Okay, Jack, I think that's quite enough.

 

Hey, baby, just get back to writin', will ya? My public is waitin' on my next case!

 

You heard him.
I'd better get back to work.

Cheers and
thanks again. :)

Karen in Pa

Good thoughts and prayers continue to be with you from Iowa. Keep us updated on your daughter's surgery and recovery. Don't forget to take time for yourself as well.

 


February 1, 2011

Thank you everyone!

Oh thank you everyone so much for your kind words, thoughts and prayers.

I read your comments to my husband and we both got such a lift. We didn't know there was still such kindness in the world.

We got word today that our daughter will need yet another operation. My husband and I were talking about it and we have utterly lost count of how many surgeries she's had. This one won't be too bad by her standards. She's had three neurosurgeries; after that most other things are a walk in the park so hopefully this one will be short and sweet. Well I know I have been a poor correspondent, mostly because I hated to be a downer by dumping my troubles on all of you, but I promise to do a better job of keeping you all up to date. Thank you all once again for your kindness and prayers; your support is one of the things that keeps me going in the hard times.

Warmest regards,
Karen in Pennsylvania

 

 

Cleo's reply: My husband and I are continuing to send prayers and good thoughts to you, your daughter, and your husband. I know anyone who reads this board is doing the same. Love to you, Karen! Keep in touch with us! :)

To Karen in Pa

Karen,

I had a sister with downs syndrome. When she was born first they wanted mom to put her in an institution then they gave her a year to live that eventually grew to 7 years. We lost her 10 years ago at the ripe old age of 32. She lived a loving and full life and was the light of my life. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your daughter through these long days

 


January 30, 2011
