Coming Next Week

Eggnog, Extortion, & Evergreens will be released on November 19th!

Welcome to Normal, where nothing is normal.


Mae West is busy this Christmas season. She’s running around Normal getting the town ready for the first Winter Festival, which she hopes will become an annual event for the tourist town.

The freshly fallen snow sure does make the Daniel Boone National Park beautiful and ready for Santa’s arrival, but it also makes the curvy roads through the forest very slick. Unfortunately, Mae finds out just how slick the roads are after her car slides off the road and hits a tree, putting Mae into a deep coma.

Mae is one of the lucky patients who does wake up and happy to celebrate Christmas with family and friends.

One of the patients in the emergency room with Mae didn’t die that night of natural causes, and Hank Sharp has himself a new homicide case on his hands.

Mae starts having memories about the fire that took her family and a memory of a murder plot that she thinks happened when she was in her coma. Only, she’s having a hard time distinguishing between the two memories and the clues seem to have blurred lines. There’s one thing she does know for sure, both incidents come with clues that neither were accidents.

Once again, Mae West with the help of the Laundry Club Ladies put on their ameatur sleuth cap to help solve the mystery of the murders before the killer sends her Christmas gift she can’t return.

  1. When I was a kid, we went camping a lot. We had a small travel trailer and had several campgrounds we would frequent.

  2. Hi! My family went camping ALL THE TIME when I was young. We tent camped; then we had one of those really small campers that fit on the back of my Dad’s truck; then, we finally got a bigger camper to pull behind the truck. We camped everywhere from in the woods (no facilities or electricity) to KOA Campgrounds. Those are some of my favorite childhood memories!

  3. we camped when then kids were young one time for the week . they had a blast swimming and fishing and the camp fires was so much fun ! all we had were tents and we use a tarp for over the cooking area love them days ! Had 4 kids and thier friends back thenin early 1990s . now we live on a lake and kids come over when they can to enjoy the fire and swim ! Also have lost our only son in 2012 ! but he left us with a grandson we are wacthing him grow into a fine young man .

  4. It has been a long time since I went camping. It was on the beach with my church youth group. I’m definitely not the “roughing it” kind of girl, but I wouldn’t mind glamping!

  5. I love camping! The summer that my oldest was turning one we lived in a tent for three months. He learned to walk quickly because he didn’t like crawling in the grass and dirt (and now he’s an organic farmer, go figure!) We basically had a compound of tents. One was the kitchen tent, another the pantry, the closet tent, you get the idea! Our bedroom was set up over a floor of pallets and then we put wall to wall carpeting on the tent floor and had a queen size mattress on that. I love the sound of your shamper now that my bones are aging lol!

  6. I used to camp all the time! I wish I still could but I know that if I got down on my sleeping bag in a tent, I’d be there forever. Sometimes I think about an RV but know I can’t afford one 🙁 It’s tough getting old. I dream about camping a lot. Sadly, that’s where my camping is going to be from now on.

  7. I do love camping. But we haven’t been in a while. I definitely hope to go soon I think my two-year-old daughter would enjoy it.

  8. We used to go camping all the time when the kids were younger and at home. We had a pop up camper with an extra tent for the kids and whatever friends that had tagged along. Now our camping is done in a cabin

  9. i havent gone camping sinc my middle son was a baby. and he is 27! we took the 2 older kids to meet their grandma & grandpa at Brown County, IN & spent the night in the camper. tent camping only growing up. even went thru a horrible thunderstorm in the tent.

  10. When I was younger I went camping a few times. We all setup tents. I had a twin blowup bed with a eggshell thingy, a thick mattress cover, sheets, sleeping bag & pillow. (I needed to be comfortable). I had a little pop-up table & lantern. A little rug. I would have my tent fixed up pretty good inside. We would hike, fish, cook around a campfire & socialize (talk a lot). Nowadays my roughing it camping is staying in a cabin at a park & going out on the lake on someone’s pontoon.

  11. My husband and I camp (or glamp really) as often as we can with our labradoodle Bosley! We live in SC and tend to stick to the south. If you are ever down this way, I highly recommend James Island County Park in Charleston, SC. You will love it!!!

  12. My husband and I used to take our children camping several times a year, we even camped on our honeymoon, although in a truck camper. One trip, I kept feeling something touching my head when we were sleeping. My husband said it was impossible as my head was against the inner wall, dividing us from the screened in section. Finally on the third day he noticed some food was broken into, we were keeping it sealed in baggies, boxes, and the like in the screened section. That night he caught a racoon in our screened section. My family always gets a laugh out of mom’s encounter with a raccoon.

  13. Yes! But only with my best friend and her family and once with my then husband. It was our 10th anniversary and the first time we could have a honeymoon without kids (we each had one premade ones)

  14. Growing up, my family never went camping. I did go camping one time with my husband, before we were married. I do love the outdoors, but camping really wasn’t for me… I prefer to sleep in a bed and have indoor plumbing.

  15. I went camping with Girl Scouts. My husband loves to camp somfor our first anniversary and our fifth Imgave him the gift of camping. For our fifth we had 2 of our kids, 2 exchange boys from Spain and a new puppy along. Quite a unique experience all in tents lol.

  16. I took my children camping every summer. It started out because we couldn’t afford to go traveling to fancy places and camping was cheap (not anymore). My daughter and son-in-law continued the tradition for long weekend get aways. I stopped camping a few years back but still have all my camping gear. Believe it or not but my camp stove and coffee pot comes in handy when we loose power. I actually miss camping.
