Gail Hulnick's novel Sleeping Dogs Lie received a Royal Palm Literary Award for 2022. It is Book 3 in the Media Mysteries series, with Book 4 of 6, titled Kangaroo Court, due for publication on March 3 of 2023. It's available for preorder on Amazon Kindle books now.
Last year, Gail Hulnick wrote a novel in thirty days - twice! November is National Novel Writing Month, and in November 2021, she wrote Sleeping Dogs Lie, which was published in January 2022 and is a finalist for a Royal Palm Literary Award. In April 2022, she signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo, which is run by the same organization and allows other forms of writing to be entered, and finished Kangaroo Court, which will be published in March 2023.
Only ten to eleven percent of those who enter do finish the 50,000 word requirement and "win".
After these experiences, Gail had thousands of words of advice and tips to offer others who have always dreamed of writing a novel. She put them together in this latest nonfiction book 100 Ways to Win NaNoWriMo. You can find it, in print and Ebook, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones, and other bookstores and libraries that order through Ingram.
Gail's novel, Sleeping Dogs Lie, has been nominated by the Florida Writers Association for a Royal Palm Literary Award in the Published Mystery category. Winners will be announced October 29, 2022.

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.
