Elizabeth Daniels Squire

Dear Friends,

This has been a busy year promoting and preparing for various re-issues of Elizabeth's books in 2009 and 2010.

A new edition of Elizabeth Daniels Squire's first mystery novel, Kill the Messenger appeared under Five Star Publications's Five-Star Sleuth's imprint December 2008, followed in sequence by new Five-Star editions of all seven mysteries featuring Squire's memorable but memory-challenged amateur detective, Peaches Dann. Watch for the last title in the series, Forget About Murder, in its new Five Star Sleuths edition, which will be out soon! We are excited to report that all of the other Peaches Dann mysteries are now available in new "trade paperback" size editions.

Expanded Edition ...

Fortune In Your HandIn addition to a complete how-to guide to hand-reading, this updated edition of Fortune In Your Hand includes a comprehensive history of plamistry from prehistoric Indian and Gypsy traditions to the modern era. It also shows readers how to take good hand-prints of their own for closer study. It contains all of the illustrations from the original edition, including the hand-prints of such celebrities as Salvador Dali, Carl Sandburg, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Helen Keller, as well as an annotated bibliography and an extensive index. This new Five Star edition of Fortune In Your Hand was revised and updated by her long-time editors (and late husband and youngest son), C. B. Squire and Worth Squire (me), based on notes left by the author.

Elizabeth Daniels Squire, who died in 2001, with just the right hint of mystery, while returning from a book promotion tour in Alaska, was posthumously inducted into the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame in 2006.

We are really proud of all these new editions of my mom's books, and hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

All the best,

Worth Squire
