I hope all of you are doing well. I thought it was time for me to give you an update on what’s been going on. But first I’d like to announce that my good friend, Dianne Harman, has just launched the next book in her popular cozy mystery series and already has another major hit on her hands. Congratulations, Dianne!
The last thing Mike Reynolds needed in the final weeks leading up to his run for re-election as sheriff of Beaver County, Oregon, was to have his wife, Kelly, discover the body of a famous movie actress. It didn’t help that she’d died under mysterious circumstances from a fall off the cliff behind her home.
Number 12 in this bestselling series by Seven Time Amazon All-Star. Intro price of $.99.

My new episodic series, The Whiskey Run Chronicles is off to a great start and I can’t thank you enough for your support. The first two Episodes have launched and Episode 3, currently available for pre-order will be out May 1st. Episodes 4-7, the rest of the first volume, or first season for those of you who prefer that term, will soon be available for pre-order and will be launched in early May through early June.
For those of you who haven’t heard about the series, here’s an overview.
The Whiskey Run Chronicles
The Whiskey Run Chronicles is the latest series from bestselling author B.R. Snow, and is set in the Thousand Islands during Prohibition when smuggling whiskey across the Canadian border into the U.S. was a business a lot of people wanted to get into. One of those people is Milo Razner, a man with big plans and a charming personality that belies a mean streak that sometimes seems to have a mind of its own. And soon after arriving in town, Milo begins to unveil his grand plan to become a respected, legitimate businessman while also operating the largest illegal booze running operation around.
The Whiskey Run Chronicles is written in individual episodes that are approximately 40-50 pages long and designed to be read in a single sitting. Readers can expect to see 3-4 new episodes every month, each one selling for less than a dollar, and the series will play itself out from just before Prohibition becomes the law of the land until it is finally repealed in the early 1930s.
The series has all the elements of B.R. Snow’s writing style readers have come to expect and enjoy. The big cast of supporting characters are well-defined, and the dialogue pops off the page. It’s a series that is one part historical fiction, one part crime story, and one part love story. Above all, it is smart and funny, and readers will find themselves rooting for Milo, a villain with a big heart and even bigger ideas about what might be possible when you do everything in your power to give the people what they want.
