Mystery Website for KAREN ROSE SMITH

                                           Meet Karen Rose Smith's Sleuth

Writing the first book in my mystery series has been challenging, exciting and absolute fun. When I developed my sleuth, she took shape so quickly I could hardly believe the process was so easy!  The plot wrapped around her and as I complete this first book, I'm hoping the second will plot as smoothly.

Many readers are familiar with my website where they can find info, excerpts and news about me and my latest romance release.  Now I'm launching a new website in addition.  My mystery website will post the latest info about my mystery releases.  Although I've finished the first Caprice De Luca mystery in the home staging series, a title for the book as well as the series title are still in development.  In spite of that, I wanted to give my readers a taste of the book and the series.  My working title for my premier mystery is KNIFE-EDGED.  I sold the series under the title STAGED TO DEATH.

In creating the website with Rox from Designs by Delaney, my talented webmistress, I wanted something unique that expressed immediate references of my sleuth, Caprice, as well as the mystery.  Since Caprice takes in stray animals, her cat Sophia--named after her nana's favorite actress Sophia Loren--has a prominent spot.  The color palette expresses Caprice's career an an interior designer and home stager.  Since Caprice is unique, I asked Rox to add a Meet Caprice page along with the usual bio and contact info.

A feature of the front page of website is the availability of my Twitter, Facebook, E-zine and blog feeds.  Readers can easily read my latest social media messages and access them from the buttons.

As soon as I have the title of the first book and the series name, I will post them.  Likewise, after the book is edited, I will post an excerpt for a reader preview.  I'm delighted about this fresh mystery branch of my career.  I'd like readers to accompany me as I plunge into this genre with its murders, clues and family dilemmas, as well as my personal touch of romance.

Enjoy the new website and remember--I like to hear from my readers!
