    Meet the Author with Dänna Wilberg

    Please join us as Penny Manson interviews Capitol Crimes member Dänna Wilberg about her latest novel, BORROWED TIME: BOOK THREE - MIND GAMES.

    When psychic Suzanne Cash witnesses the aftermath of a young woman who takes her life in Paris, she is horrified. But when similar tragedies happen repeatedly, Suzanne's sixth sense kicks into high alert. Are Gen-X suicides on the rise? Or is there something more sinister going on? A mass shooting in Sacramento strikes close to home, and the facts just don't add up. The anonymous gunman commits suicide, one of the witnesses dies in a fiery car crash, and a little girl and her family go missing... Suzanne and her psychic friends join forces to figure out how the bizarre incidents are connected, and what they have to do with 5G Detective Sam Metzger battles changes in his own thoughts, his department's behavior, and an overall psychosis affecting the community. The relevance begs the question: Are people out of their minds? Or...is a puppet master calling the shots?

    Dänna Wilberg is the author of the Borrowed Time paranormal series, featuring psychic Suzanne Cash. Dänna produced and hosted “Paranormal Connection” for Access TV in Sacramento for 15 years, taped over 500 shows, interviewing psychics, UFO experts, tarot readers, ghost hunters, people who experienced near-death experiences, remote viewers, healers, shamans, astrologers, and those with telekinetic gifts.

    Many writers choose self-publishing over traditional, and a growing number of hybrid authors do both.

    Capitol Crimes authors Cindy Sample, Anne R. Tan, Jessica Cline and Karen Phillips will discuss their experiences in self-publishing and offer their tips and tricks of the trade, including:

    • setting up the writing and business foundation
    • marketing strategies and tactics
    • thriving as an indie author
    • whether to go wide or Amazon only

    These days, even traditionally published authors do most of their own marketing and can learn a lot from our panel about selling your book.

    Cindy Sample

    Cindy Sample is a former corporate CEO who decided plotting murder was more entertaining than plodding through paperwork. Her eight-book Laurel McKay Humorous Mystery series is primarily set in the California Gold Country, unless Cindy feels like traveling. Then the characters tag along with her on trips to Hawaii, the Caribbean and Las Vegas. Cindy loves researching her books, especially when it involves sampling daiquiris or donuts. Cindy is a five-time finalist for the LEFTY Award for Best Humorous Mystery and a two-time finalist for the SILVER FALCHION Award for best traditional mystery. BIRTHDAYS ARE MURDER is the first book in her new Spindrift Cove Mystery series set in Washington state.

    Anne R. Tan

    Anne R. Tan writes the Raina Sun Mystery series, the Lucy Fong Mystery series, and the Cedar Woods Mystery series. Her humorous cozy mysteries feature diverse characters and relationships because everyone deserves to be an armchair detective. Please visit Anne's website for more information about her books. 

    Jessica Cline

    Jessica Arden is the author of Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, the first in the Ghosted paranormal cozy mystery series. She’s stomped grapes in her native California, hiked 350 miles on an ancient pilgrimage route in Spain, had breakfast with a coatimundi in Costa Rica, and spent the night in a monastery. But wherever life takes her, her true north will always be with her husband and two energetic boys.

    When she’s not writing, you can find Jessica teaching, crafting, or hyperfocusing on her latest research obsession. Jessica's short fiction has appeared in Woman's World as well as multiple anthologies.
