Stacy Juba-- Twenty-Five Years Ago Today

Stacy Juba is the author of the mystery novels Twenty-Five Years Ago Today and Sink Or Swim, as well as the patriotic children's picture book The Flag Keeper. She is a freelance writer and former daily newspaper reporter with more than a dozen writing awards to her credit, including three New England Press Association awards and the American Cancer Society New England Chapter’s Sword of Hope Media Award. Her young adult novel Face-Off was published under her maiden name, Stacy Drumtra, when she was 18 years old. She is also one of the resident authors/moderators
at Bestseller Bound, a forum where readers connect with small press and independent authors.

Product Description:
Twenty-Five Years Ago Today is a mystery novel available in both trade paperback and multiple e-book formats. Obit writer and editorial assistant Kris Langley feels like the newsroom slave – that is, until she stumbles across an unsolved murder while compiling "25 Years Ago Today" items from the microfilm.  Determined to launch her reporting career, Kris investigates the cold case of Diana Ferguson, an artistic young cocktail waitress obsessed with Greek and Roman mythology.  She soon
learns that old news never leaves the morgue and that yesterday's
headline is tomorrow's danger, for finding out the truth about that night
twenty-five years ago may shatter Kris’s present, costing her love, her
career, and ultimately, her life.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
E-readers will enjoy Twenty-Five Years Ago Today as it is a page-turner
and a puzzle.  The book keeps readers guessing about who-dunnit. The
novel also has elements of romance, suspense and an intriguing subplot
about Greek mythology. Book clubs will enjoy discussing it and can use
the Reader’s Guide which is included at the end of the e-book edition or
print it out from my web site.
Q: Why did you go indie?
I was fortunate that the trade paperback edition was published by a new
small press called Mainly Murder Press, after nine years of trying to
sell the manuscript. Since I held the e-book rights, I published the
e-book version myself – uploading it to Amazon Kindle and distributing it
to other e-book retailers through Smashwords.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
I really enjoy the books of authors Darcia Helle, KD Easley and CJ Lyons,
who all have mystery/suspense books available in e-book formats.
