There's some fun stuff going on the Cozy Krew page on Facebook.
What? What is the Cozy Krew??? That's where readers who read my books gather and have fun. I love how some of them have gotten together in the real world or even met up at my annual TWO DAMES ON MY MYSTERY TRAIN event every October.
If you want to join, CLICK HERE. We'd love to have you.


Right now is a great time to join! If you don't belong to Facebook (I can see your grumbles and eye rolls), you should try it. It's free and there's so many wonderful authors on there that you get to interact with on a more personal level. That's the best part for me. I love to interact with everyone and some readers just can't make it to book signings or events. I understand that, but I don't want them to miss out, so that's why I have the Cozy Krew. Facebook is easy to join and you really don't have to do much. Just join the group and that's all you have to do. You can be as interactive or not as you want.


Don't worry! Right here on Tuesday Morning Coffee with Tonya, there's still the monthly giveaway and the weekly gift card giveaway.


Right now is a GREAT time to join the COZY KREW! Why??
Because we've started a Tonya Kappes Book READ ALONG for Scene of the Grind.
What is a READ ALONG???
We are reading a few chapters a week until the book is finished. The reason why I decided to do this is because I'm focusing on my self publishing career this year~be sure to check out next Tuesday's Coffee Chat for my 2018 publishing schedule~ and I've written seven books between SCENE OF THE GRIND and COLD BLOODED BREW that there are a few details that I've forgotten.


​​

Since I've got to reread SCENE OF THE GRIND, I thought y'all might like to as well. There was an overwhelming response on the COZY KREW Facebook page that readers wanted to join me. It was go from there!

We are doing them on Monday, 7 PM EST and last night was the first night, BUT you didn't miss out! It's an open thread so people who couldn't make it the first night, can go on and comment when they can. So head on over and join the discussion. It'll be a lot of fun!
