I had no idea back when Pennies from Burger Heaven was published in 2015 that it would take me four long years to write the sequel. Never did I dream I would fall into such a dark place after our house fire.
But you know what? I can truly say now that I’m so grateful for the lessons I’ve learned since then because I’m happier and healthier than ever before.
At long last, Bones and Lies Between Us (Copper Daniels #2)- SkipJack Publishing) will be released mid-December. I’m so grateful for your extreme patience. Drumroll, please …
Here it is!
I love this cover so much and think my graphic designer, Jane Dixon, with JD Smith Design did a terrific job (she created the cover for Pennies, too).
Bones and Lies Between Us
Copper Daniels is back, more heartbreaking and hilarious than ever. Four months after Pennies ends …
“I have a whole new life now, but it’s just a different kind of bad and it’s about to get a lot worse. More secrets … more lies, all dragging me back to Paradise — the meanest, nastiest part of the city.
I don’t care what the cops say, Mama didn’t do it. She didn’t. I’m running away to find the real killer.
Or, die trying.”
Read Pennies from Burger Heaven 1st
In order to get the full emotional impact of this fast-paced story, start with Copper Daniels Book #1. I’m so proud that Pennies has earned 260+ Amazon reviews. Read it first — you’ll be glad you did.
“Me and Mama sleep beneath the Warrior Angel statue. It’s our cemetery home … that is, ’til the day I wake up and she’s gone.
Gone! Now, I’m seriously freaked out, but I’ve got to find her. How? Where? Has anyone seen her? She’s always saying, don’t trust nobody but yourself.
Wish I would’ve listened …
Readers of Room and The Lovely Bones will absolutely enjoy my books. Bones and Lies Between Us will be released December 2019.
I want to say a special thank you to all my loyal readers. I cannot express my gratitude for lifting me up these past four years. You kept me writing, despite self-doubt, emotional pain and house fires.

Marcy- What a nice compliment. I’m glad that I came to mind, I’m can’t tell you what profound affect Pennies has on me. I think I’m going to go back and revisit the book again in preparation for the sequel.
LOVE IT! Happy reading, Tonya. Tell Copper hi for me.
Great cover, Marcy! I’m happy dancing. This is the best news I’ve heard and I’m so happy that you’re back. I can’t wait to read Bones and Lies! You have a God-given talent for creating gripping stories and unforgettable characters. You can quote me on that. Love you dearly, friend.

I can’t wait either! <3
I imagine walking into a book store and sitting on one of those tables at the front, that cover would make me pick it up and read the blurb. And that quote is awesome! Can’t wait for release day. This book will jump to the top of my TBR list.
Oh, Francois … you are so dear to me. Your email a few months ago was just what my heart needed that day, and made really get serious about finishing this book. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And you’re right … that is a great blurb that A.G. Howard gave me. I’m so lucky so many people love Copper Daniels.
Looks awesome, Marcy Mudpie!!! 🙂 Congrats!!!

Ooooh, intriguing. I LOVE that you used that word to describe my cover. Makes me :). THANK YOU!
Hi from across the pond Marcy. You are often in my thoughts knowing what you went through..I love the new book cover, and can’t wait to buy my copy. You are awesome ! Blessings.x
You’re so kind, Marian. All my readers are, and I appreciate it so much! I’m thrilled you love the cover, and even more so that you want to continue your journey with Copper Daniels. Much love. m3
Marcy, Suzanne beat me to the word, “INTRIGUING”. Even so, it applies! The design says “Something so wrong it MUST be right – for some reason”, and compels an in-depth investigation.
Avid readers are blessed with imagination, and that can be set off with very little sparks. We are quite often very visually triggered, too. An especial praise for the concept and execution to Ms. Dixon.
Anxiously awaiting the release of the finished work.
Thanks, Bob. I’ll take INTRIGUING as often as I can get it! I appreciate you taking time to share your excitement. Readers like you mean a lot to me.
Marcy, Congratulations on another book and I absolutely love your cover. The title and that yellow umbrella are irresistible. I can hardly wait to read the book. I enjoyed Pennies from Burger Heaven. Hard to put down.
Thanks so much, Suzana. I know how much you love stories, so that really touches my heart. The wait is almost over … Copper Daniels is back!
It makes me want to open the book up and start reading!
YAY! That makes me so happy. A special, super-duper THANK YOU to you sweet Paige, because you’re one of the people that has always cheered me on. I so love and appreciate you for that + a million other reasons, too. xoxoxo – m3
Beautiful cover! I’m so glad it’s getting close.
I’m delighted you think so, and appreciate you taking time to share your thoughts!
I like it.
Me, too! Thanks.
Beautiful cover/beautiful artwork. Absolutely begs to be picked up and read. I can’t wait till it comes out in December 🙂
Music to my ears, Suzanne. Thank you. I appreciate your comment, and sit tight … my book comes out October 27! Yay!
