39 Winks (A Maggie O'Malley Mystery) by Kathleen Valenti is on book tour with Great Escape Virtual Book Tours and stops at Readeropolis with an author interview.


Author Interview 

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?
My audience is people who love mysteries with a little bit of thriller thrown in. Readers—and reviewers—tell me that 39 Winks has it all: character, pacing, plot, humor. I love that they see it that way!

How did you come up with the title of your book or series?
39 Winks is a bit of an unusual title. It’s in reference to Aunt Polly’s sleepwalking, which she engages in the night she discovers her husband’s murdered body. Maggie says that Polly isn’t fully asleep when she wanders the house at night. She gets 39 winks rather than 40.

Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular image/artwork?
I’m so lucky that the folks at Henery Press do such beautiful covers! The cover pairs nicely with that of my debut novel, Protocol, and plays up the distortions of time and space that happens when we sleep.

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
Please find me here!

What can we expect from you in the future?
I’m working on the next book in the Maggie O’Malley Mystery series. She’s on the brink of a new change—both personally and professionally—when life and death intervene.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
What a lovely question. Thank you for asking! If you like the book, please review it, especially on Goodreads and Amazon. Also, please ask them to carry it at your library if they already don’t. I love libraries!

Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?
For aspiring writers, just keep at it! It’s a tricky industry to break into, but perseverance does pay off.

Is there anything else you’d like to say?
Thanks for having me! And many thanks to everyone who has read my book or books. I am so very grateful.

Former pharmaceutical researcher Maggie O’Malley is losing sleep. Her boyfriend Constantine’s aunt is a multitasking sleepwalker who, in addition to wandering her stately home, prepares meals, folds laundry and, one winter night, stumbles across her husband with his throat slit. It’s a rude and gruesome awakening that’s upsetting to Aunt Polly. And interesting to the police. Maggie and Constantine work to uncover who killed the cosmetic surgery mogul and why. As they dig into the lives of those who knew him best, they discover that the truth is only skin deep and doctoring perception is a treatment with deadly side effects. A gripping page-turner with more twists than a surgeon’s suture, 39 Winks is a tale of lies, betrayals and greed that will keep you up at night. And looking over your shoulder.
