The Tavernier Stones by Stephen Parrish!

I am about to dig into a book by my good writing friend Stephen Parrish. I "met" Stephen and many other wonderful folks through a blog called Miss Snark. Miss Snark was the bomb. She was an anon literary agent who gave your the straight skinny on publishing from the end of a bullwhip. The pain was exquisite and her club was the place to be even though I never did warm up to the ball gag. Hey, I'm a talker, what can I say? Alas, "she" retired and the party ended. Many of us leapt over to FB, which, sans Snark, is not quite the same.

I am thrilled that Stephen is now published. His book is a rollicking mystery with... are you ready? A built in puzzle/contest called an "Armchair Treasure Hunt" for a 1 carat diamond! This is like an online scavenger hunt for clues. You read the book, check out his site, follow around the web looking for clues. (Hint hint look the the right and down, no, no, scroll down a bit more. See it? Yes, that. No, I don't know what the hell it means either!)

You can go to Stephen Parrish to learn how to play and where to buy the book. I think it would be GREAT for folks with Asperger's and HFA to join the hunt!

Congrats, Stephen!

I just finished The Tavernier Stones. I have NO CHANCE of solving any mystery. The diamond is safe and out there for YOU. The book is terrific. I really liked the character development and the cartography and gemology details. Well done, Stephen!
