FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE For Further Information Contact: Diane Dean-Epps, 530-272-5446 Website: FORMER BROADCAST JOURNALIST UTILIZES RÉSUMÉ IN NEW MYSTERY NOVEL, K-I-L-L-TV, FEATURING APRIL FIFTEENTH—TAX DAY—MURDER Grass Valley, California – The hilarious author of the babyboomer anthem to parenthood, Maternal Meanderings, and the humorous mystery featuring quaint Nevada City as its setting, Last Call, now brings us a new mystery that takes deadly aim at your funny bone—K-I-L-L TV. K-I-L-L TV highlights author Dean-Epps’ humorous flare for comedy and creation of likeably unique characters. Drawing from her own personal résumé, having worked at an NBC-affiliate television station for six years, Dean-Epps presents fictitious television station, KQPT-TV, as an exciting backdrop for the plot providing just the right touch of realism and details which place the reader directly into the story. The alliterative female protagonist news director, Leslie Lloyd, is a recovering alcoholic who grapples with the dual challenges of working a high-pressure career and a high-pressure murder case. The plot begins with the murder of KQPT’s insufferable station owner, Lincoln Delaware Bradbury III, on April 15th. Tax Day. Who knew that Old Ben Franklin’s old axiom about, "death and taxes” would provide a one-two punch introduction to the plot of K-I-L-L TV? We are pulled into K-I-L-LTV’s action when we learn that Leslie was known to disagree with the head honcho; publicly, loudly, and frequently. It doesn’t escape anyone’s attention that Leslie and Lincoln had one humdinger of an argument a mere day’s worth of hours before, least of all the police. The fight leaves Leslie distraught, causing her to forget to file her tax return on her way home from work, leading her to become the girl most likely to be incarcerated for the murder of her boss and income tax evasion. As if that isn’t enough, Leslie’s husband, that rat-bastard Bob, is leaving her and she’s in desperate need of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting—or ten. An unexpected diversion in the form of a love connection with policeman, Jared Stanford, provides a welcome breather, even as a veritable Lombard Street of plot twists engulf her. The song title chapter headings set the tone for the intrigue as we get a closer look at Leslie’s life, friends, and struggle to stay on top in the uncompromising world of broadcast journalism. She does this with style, intelligence, and clever asides, all while the killer watches and waits at…K-I-L-L TV. ##
