Sleeping Dogs Lie is set in the world of community newspapers and is the story of the story of the discovery of a body in a public park in a small southwest Florida town. Here is the back cover copy:
Lillian Howe, living alone and convincing herself that she likes it, stumbles on a body, left under the bushes in a park near a southwest Florida beach. It is a beautiful dog, its head battered and its back legs tied together with a black scarf. When Lillian decides to write about the killing in her newspaper column, she becomes the target of an arsonist and a pack of ferocious dogs. A gripping tale of mystery, suspense, and long-buried secrets, Sleeping Dogs Lie brings the worlds of community newspapers, dog lovers, Florida beaches, and the Everglades together in Book 3 of Gail Hulnick’s Media Mysteries series.
The novel is available here in Ebook only in the Kindle Book store. Paperback edition will be released later this month and audiobook edition in February.

The first episodes featured award-winning horror novelist Arjay Lewis, podcaster Evan Stern, fashion illustrator Marta Madison, author David A. Stone, rock musician Rocky Kramer, and first-time co-authors Frank Irvin and Bill Long.
We've put together Gail's two media mystery novels -- The Lion's Share of the Air Time and A Bird in the Sand -- in an Ebook boxed set, now available on Amazon as a Kindle book (which can be read on any device.)
The Lion's Share of the Air Time was a quarter finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough First Novel Award in 2014. A Bird in the Sand was a winner in the Royal Palm Literary Awards in Florida in 2020. These are crime stories without torture, graphic violence or psychological terror.
We've been working on The Brainwave Podcast, and if you check out the podcast page on this website, you can hear the Introduction and see a Description. We're listed on Spotify, Google Podcasts, IHeartRadio, and Stitcher, and are waiting on confirmation from Apple Podcasts. The focus is the creative spark -- that charmed moment when you get an idea and you just know it could be good. What do you do next? How do (or did) you take it from the brainwave to the finished thing? What can you do if the ideas stop coming? How does an author, an artist, a composer, a designer, a chef, a choreographer, a sculptor or an architect nurture their creativity?
We hope you'll join us every Sunday after 5 pm for a new episode. Launching August 1st.
The three novels in Gail's Resorting Series -- Resorting to Murder, Resorting to Larceny, and Resorting to Fraud -- are now available in Ebook format as a boxed set.

The collection is available in the Kindle Store on Amazon for 9.99 and can be read on any device.
You can download the first one in the series, Resorting to Murder, for free over five days in June: June 4th through 8th.
