The 2019 I HEART Books Sale was at the Gainesville Downtown Public Library. I met new authors and awesome readers, including the members of a local book club that is considering recommending the books of the DONUT LADY MYSTERY SERIES for their club to read this summer.
Book Club: We had an author who came to speak to us once. Would you be willing to do that?
Me: That would be awesome! I would love to! <Wow! WooHoo!>

SWEET DEAL SEALED is FREE through May 11 on Amazon.
Why another free book? There’s no royalty paid for a free book. However, Amazon does pay the writer for every page read, even if the book is free. It works out to about $0.0004 or so a page. Not a lot of money, right? But sometimes a reader leaves a review on Amazon or Goodreads. PRICELESS!
Would you like to know IN ADVANCE about the next free book or even when the next new book is released? The subscribers to the Judith A. Barrett monthly eNewsletter are always the first to hear the news before anyone else!

By the time MAGGIE SLOAN is four years old, she is a focused, self-trained spy. In the second grade, she expands her remarkable talents for observation and data analysis by programming her first computer tracking system. After college, Maggie’s diverse job searches are futile until she is hired by the county library.
When Maggie’s brilliant observational talents and her potential to expose complex criminal activity draw the attention of an international ring, she becomes their target. However, a senseless murder changes her life forever, and MAGGIE transforms from prey to predator.
Will the librarian with the soul of a spy and the unusual security team stop the desperate kingpins or will she become the latest victim? It all comes down to kill or be killed.
This is the cover for I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A SPY.
Maggie’s spy training began when she was 4. As a librarian, her observation skills threaten a lucrative criminal venture.
