This is the time of year when one holiday bumps up against another, beginning with Halloween and ending with New Year’s Day. So here at Killer Crafts & Crafty Killers we’re embracing all these holidays by featuring various holiday-themed books from now through the end of the year. Today we kick things off with A Stitch To Die For, the fifth book in the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery Series by my very own author Lois Winston. And as a special Halloween treat, A Stitch To Die For is on sale throughout October for only .99 cents.

Those of you familiar with this blog know that Lois is the writer who takes pleasure in tormenting me by dropping dead bodies into my life on a fairly regular basis. So you can imagine how much worse it might get around Halloween. 

I’ve heard it said that authors are told to write what they know. Well, I have it on good authority that Lois had a few harrowing experiences during Halloweens of her youth. As a result, she’s not a huge fan of the holiday. So, of course, she’s transferred those feelings to yours truly. If you want to know what trouble she creates for me as the goblins and ghosts gear up to roam the streets, check out A Stitch To Die For

As with all the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Cozies, crafts are included. A Stitch To Die For includes knitting and crochet patterns for baby blankets.

A Stitch to Die For
An Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery, Book 5

Ever since her husband died and left her in debt equal to the gross national product of Uzbekistan, magazine crafts editor and reluctant amateur sleuth Anastasia Pollack has stumbled across one dead body after another—but always in work-related settings. When a killer targets the elderly nasty neighbor who lives across the street from her, murder strikes too close to home. Couple that with a series of unsettling events days before Halloween, and Anastasia begins to wonder if someone is sending her a deadly message.
