New 99 cents release and a giveaway! @melinda_colt #mgtab

Hi there!

I hope your week has started well, and if you’re a fan of mysteries and giveaways, I have great news for you!

Some of you who bought The Authors’ Billboard box set, Dear Santa, might have already read my novella, Saving Maddie, a part of my Irish Garda Series. If you haven’t, I just released my single title and priced it at 99 cents, so all readers can get a bite-size taste of my new series.

Detective Finola ‘Finn’ McGregor enjoys her job at An Garda Síochána, Ireland’s police force. In a country with a low crime rate, a cop’s job isn’t as exciting as people might think—until Finn becomes part of a team that uncovers a network of human traffickers, specializing in kidnapping children and forcing them to beg on the streets.

Finn’s sense of justice would’ve compelled her to solve the case anyway, but when she meets one of the trafficker’s victims, her resolve strengthens. One look into the little girl’s sad, blue eyes, and Finn would willingly give her life to save Maddie.


Delving into the mystery and thriller genre is new to me, and I am just starting my media presence under my new pen name, Melinda Colt. For this purpose I have organized a giveaway on my Facebook and Instagram pages. For a chance to win a signed paperback and a $50 Amazon Gift Card, I hope you’ll join me there and enter the giveaway.

Aaaannnd…. I still have ONE more surprise for you! If you’re looking for a FREE read this week, check out this review copies giveaway that we’ve put together on Story Origin for you!

Until next time, stay safe and be well, my friends!
