I’m stalking my friend, Cindy Sample, because while she’s just sent her second mystery novel off to the publisher, she continues to tirelessly promote her current novel, Dying for a Date.

I recently read Dying for a Date, a humorous mystery set in Placerville and El Dorado Hills, and was taken aback when one of the characters (albeit brief) was named Margie Andrews. Can you believe it? I’m in her book!

By the way, don’t call me Margie; I hate that. I will pull the car over to the side of the road and beat you senseless with my jumper cables if you ever call me Margie.

But I’m forgiving Cindy because she didn’t know any better. Plus, she didn’t know me, literally, when she wrote Dying for a Date. Which can only mean one thing.

Cindy is psychic.

But anyway, last weekend she was signing books at the Borders in Folsom and I stopped by to visit, ostensibly to say hello and keep her company and show her some support as a fellow author.

But the real reason I came was for the free dead body cookies.

When Cindy offered me a free dead body cookie, it took all I had not to drool and run away like a monkey to eat my cookie. So I waited an appropriate amount of time (approximately 12 seconds) before I bid my farewells and didn’t actually start running to my car until I was safely out the door.

For a dead body, it looks an awful lot like Big Foot.

What I want to know is, who sells dead body cookie cutters? Bewitched, Bereaved & Beyond?
