Giveaway to celebrate the release of LIE OF THE NEEDLE!

FABULOUS giveaway to celebrate the release of LIE OF THE NEEDLE!

A beautiful hand-stitched vintage needlework sampler dated May, 1936 that I found it at a little antique store in Chester County, Pennsylvania. It says, “Let me live in the house by the side of the road and be a friend to man.” It’s cross-stitched on linen, and I believe it’s in its original wooden frame. (There’s the striped brown paper still on the back!).

Leave a comment here, or wherever you see this post to be entered to win the sampler, plus a copy of LIE OF THE NEEDLE, #3 in the Deadly Notions mysteries from Berkley Prime Crime.

I’ll draw the winner on Saturday morning, 1/10/15. Good luck!
