Happy Holidays, Readers!
 
It's time again for the 21st Annual Critters Readers' Poll, where you can vote for your favorite stories!  I hope you'll want to vote for some of mine, but, hey, feel free to vote how you want! 
 
Vote for as many categories as you like, but not twice for the same thing (that would be naughty).  Scroll down the page, past the ads, to get to the voting.  To avoid robo-voting, Critters asks for your email so they can send you a vote confirmation.  But you don't have to sign-up with Critters, and they promise not to share info.  
 
Hurry! Voting ends January 14!
 
Here's the categories for what I've written.  Vote for all four if you want!

SPARKY OF BUNKER HILL AND THE COLD KID CASE

First in the new SPARKY OF BUNKER HILL YA Mystery Series

 
       
 

“Depression-era downtown Los Angeles comes alive when an eleven-year-old back-alley gamin becomes fugitive suspect number-one in a Bunker Hill murder.”

—Jim Dawson, author of Los Angeles’s Bunker Hill: Pulp Fiction’s Mean Streets and Film Noir’s Ground Zero

       
 

Filled with 1930s Hollywood glamour and grit, 

Sparky of Bunker Hill and the Cold Kid Case

delivers a piece of the action—and a spunky streetwise sleuth to go with it.

Diane Vallere, national bestselling author of the Madison Night Mystery Series
