In what can only be called a fine Christmas present for an author, the Cozy Mystery Book Reviews website posted a very positive review of King Harald on Christmas Day.
My favorite quote is: “The Karma of King Harald was a really fun, light hearted cozy mystery. For fans of canines in cozy mysteries this is definitely one you won’t want to miss.”
Some other great comments include:
“I really enjoy cozy mysteries with animals, and I have a new series to add my to ‘favorites’ list with King Harald, the adorable canine in this series. King Harald, with his ability to sniff out clues, had me saying ‘aww’ a lot…”
“As a first book in this series, I was instantly pulled into the town of New Bergen, and it’s ‘unusual’ occupants. Trudi Bock, New Age retailer at Karma Kubbyhole, certainly lights up the pages, as she tries to get Andy to rekindle their flame, despite Andy dating Deputy Sheriff Cass Conlin.”
Many thanks to Cozy Mystery Book Reviews for the kind words.

There’s no greater praise for a writer than praise from a master author in one’s own genre. And as animal mystery authors go, there are few who are more popular and significant than Carole Nelson Douglas, whose Midnight Louie Vegas cat mysteries have been delighting readers for many years. Carole had this to say about The Karma of King Harald:
“Lake Wobegon fans, rush to a new canine cozy mystery with a fresh smalltown setting! New Bergen is packed with tourists and Nordic crafts, characters and food, not to mention murders. Andy Skyberg, returning native, is drawn into solving the crimes, but his large loveable mutt, King Harald, is the expert at sniffing out murders. This mystery is amusing and charming, with complex passions and plot at its core.“ –Carole Nelson Douglas, author of the Midnight Louie mysteries

A big hello to everyone from the picturesque little town of New Bergen–about a two-hour drive northwest up the Interstate from the Cities, in the heart of Beaver Tail County. We’re famous for our many antique shops, and the great noodles and pasta they make at the Lovely Lena Macaroni Corporation. Not famous yet, but hoping to be, are New Bergen residents Andy Skyberg and his dog King Harald.
This is the very first blog post about Andy and Harald, and they’re proud to be here. Their premiere adventure in cozy crime-fighting, The Karma of King Harald, will be out in early December and they’re eager to know what you think about it. Andy, by the way, is looking for a new girlfriend and Harald is happy to accept a Slim Jim from time to time. (Though Andy reserves the right to limit the quantities of beef sticks that his canine companion consumes.)
Check back here for more news in the weeks and months after King Harald takes its bow.
