Executive Lunch is up on Amazon for $1.99 for Kindlers!

Sedona is given the opportunity of a lifetime: play an up-and-coming executive with all the trappings of wealth with someone else footing the bill. The catch: find out who is stealing company funds before the criminals find out that their program is being debugged.

Sedona runs into danger, the corporate glass ceiling, and an occasional chance at romance in her quest to figure out who is stealing money from Strandfrost.

There's an Excerpt on my blog (but of course you can download a sample from Smashwords or from Amazon!)

Off to update my sig lines...

Thanks. I'll leave it for now. See how it goes. Took me a while of studying up to get the links/pix in there.

Thanks for the input!!!

first review in for Executive Lunch

Whew. The first review for Executive Lunch has been posted at Amazon (and no, I wouldn't tell you if it were a bad review!!!)

Here is the text:



5.0 out of 5 stars Tickled my funny bone and I'm still laughing., November 18, 2009
By Old Granny "Granny" - See all my reviews

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

Have you ever worked in an office where the layout "...ensured that everyone was equally deprived of a window office with the exception of the managers"? Then you'll feel right at home at Strandfrost, the realistically exaggerated corporation at the center of Maria E. Schneider's delightful new mystery, Executive Lunch (A Sedona O'Hala Mystery). Schneider brings the reader face to face, and sometimes fist to nose, with a cast of diverse and interesting characters. The action starts inside the corporate corridors and soon spins excitingly into other equally bizarre venues. Even while you're chuckling, you'll realize you care what happens to the heroine, self described "lab rat" Sedona O'Hala. Whether it's fast moving action or dealing with a brother who threatens to rat Sedona out to their parents, Schneider writes skillfully and retains her sense of humor. This is Schneider at her best - funny, insightful, and exciting.

I'm completely THRILLED (and indebted to one "old Granny!" for her kindness!)

I've just had a little quiet time to start reading your new book, Executive Lunch, and it looks like it will be another great read.

Hopefully, I will get some time during the holiday to delve into the story a bit more. (For some strange reason family want to talk when they gather together)

Isn't that *strange?* My family is that way too!!!! Never understood it, myself.

Hope you enjoy the book, and I really hope you enjoy your holidays and family time. I recommend a chocolate cream pie to keep everyone in a good mood!!

I've updated the "blurb" for Catch an Honest Thief over on smashwords:

Quote:
Alexia wanted to improve the security of the crystals that power Haven City. Going undercover and stealing the crystals seemed like a great idea--until a real thief showed up. Bait and switch is suddenly cat and mouse--but who is the real thief? And why is the new security chief spending so much time looking into her background? Young adults may also enjoy this mystery with a romantic subplot.
We're only allowed 400 words, so it's difficult to decide on just what pithy, interesting sentence we will write...

I've also updated the cover slightly, and that update should show up in my signature in the next few days. These are minor updates brought to you by reader suggestions.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. If you're looking for ideas for using up leftover turkey, check my blog. I posted my favorite turkey salad wrap with caesar dressing recipe! I also highly recommend making an alfredo sauce. Goes really well with turkey, especially if you have smoked turkey...

Nice, Maria. (I'm one of those that would like more stories -or a whole novel- about the people in Sage.)

Don't worry; I won't put up a post every time I get a review--but this is my first foreign review, so I'm particularly tickled.

Long ago and far away, I mentioned I'd had another short story accepted...well, the date got changed from August to Oct...to...? As happens in the world of publishing, sometimes editors disappear or don't update their site for long periods (especially true in the short story market). At any rate, I'm guessing that the story wont' be published after all since I have not heard from the editor in...oh, three months or so.

I've contacted the publisher to try and either free the story for publication elsewhere or...get a possible publication date. I just wanted to let people know since I tooted about the story.

In the meantime, I'm busy at work on the second in the Sedona series...

Happy New Year everyone!

I know I said I wouldn't post every single review I get...It's possible I lied. Okay, I probably still won't post them all. But I really enjoyed this review by Working Girl Reviews for Executive Lunch:

http://workinggirlreviews.wordpress....a-e-schneider/

Let's face it--it's my first 4 slipper review! Woot!
