Do you remember the show Twin Peaks and how the big question of the year was Who Killed Laura Palmer? Well, I’ve borrowed that concept to spread the word about my mystery/romantic suspense novel Twenty-Five Years Ago Today. And it’s working! Over the weekend, the book became a Nook and Kindle bestseller – hitting the Top 5 in the overall Nook Store and Top 30 in the Paid Kindle Store.
Since the murder victim in the book, Diana Ferguson, was killed 25 years ago, using the Twitter hashtag #WhoKilledDianaFerguson seemed like a natural fit. These 10 quick facts will give you an overview of Diana.
1. She was a 21-year-old cocktail waitress who waited tables at Rossi’s Bar.
2. Diana was devastated by the death of her father when she was in high school.
3. She had a wild best friend named Raquel.
4. Diana was an artist whose paintings were inspired by Greek mythology.
5. She once painted a picture inspired by the Greek myth of Pandora opening the jar of plagues and releasing them onto mankind.
6. Against the advice of her friends and family, she dated troublemaker Vince Rossi.
