Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 259 + Book Release

Gah! I'm doing a terrible job keeping up with my 15 Minute Tweet Tales this year. The last few weeks have been busy, so I'll use that as my excuse. I'm planning a post for next week to share what I've been working on, but for today I want to share someone else's good news. 
 
It's release day for Kellye Garrett's HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE!!
 
I'm so thrilled for her! I met Kellye during PitchWars ’14, and we bonded over being mystery writers. It's been so fun watching her book come to life, and today it's out in the world. Congrats, Kellye!!
 
Hollywood Homocide
Hollywood Homicide
Book 1 in the Detective By Day Series
Publisher: Midnight Ink
Release Date: August 8, 2017
 
Dayna Anderson doesn’t set out to solve a murder. All the semi-famous, mega-broke black actress wants is to help her parents keep their house. After witnessing a deadly hit-and-run, she figures pursuing the fifteen-grand reward isn’t the craziest thing a Hollywood actress has done for some cash.
 
But what starts as simply trying to remember a speeding car soon blossoms into a full-on investigation. As Dayna digs deeper into the victim’s life, she wants more than just reward money. She’s determined to find the poor woman’s killer too. When she connects the accident to a notorious Hollywood crime spree, Dayna chases down leads at paparazzi hot spots, celeb homes and movie premieres. She loves every second—until someone tries to kill her.
 
And there are no second takes in real life.
 
Kellye GarrettAbout Kellye Garrett
Kellye Garrett spent 8 years working in Hollywood, including a stint writing for the CBS drama Cold Case. People were always surprised to learn what she did for a living—probably because she seemed way too happy to be brainstorming ways to murder people. A former magazine editor, Kellye holds a B.S. in magazine writing from Florida A&M and an MFA in screenwriting from USC’s famed film school. Having moved back to her native New Jersey, she spends her mornings commuting to Manhattan for her job at a leading media company—while still happily brainstorming ways to commit murder. Her first novel, Hollywood Homicide, will be released by Midnight Ink in August 2017. It’s the first book in the Detective by Day series.

And now it's time for 15 Minute Tweet Tales. Although it feels a bit like cheating, I'm going to skip the tweet tales I missed the last few weeks for the sake of getting this posted. So here's this week's word:
 
porceltor - a little hole in the sink used for draining the water before an overflow occurs.
 
8/8 - The sink overflows, splashing red water everywhere. Her husband's foul habits had clogged the porceltor. Even in death he vexes her. 
 
Play along and write tweet tales for the above word. If you’re willing to share, post them on twitter with the hashtag #15tt or add them below in the comments because I’d love to read them. Any thoughts about this week's tweet tale or #15tt word?

I had no idea what a porceltor was before this post. Wow!

Best of luck to Kellye. Love the colors in the cover. :)
