A few weeks ago, I was asked to write a blog post for the Killer Nashville and I chose to write about my experiences collaborating with Wayne McDaniel on Resurrection Bay. I had a lot of fun with it and I’m especially grateful for Clay Stafford’s kind words about my work. I’m a fan of his, too…
To check out the blog post, go to the Killer Nashville blog:
The local Sisters-in-Crime chapter invited me to talk about RESURRECTION BAY at their monthly meeting last week, which was held at Bookman/Bookwoman, one of the best bookstores in Nashville. My thanks to a wonderful author and friend, Jaden Terrell, for the invite. It turned into a great event and I got the chance to catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in awhile, including my old pal, Dewey Lambdin, author of the Alan Lewrie novels.
Last Saturday, July 12th, Humanities Tennessee held its first-ever Release Party at the Brentwood Public Library. During the event, they presented a slide show of the upcoming list of attending authors. I was thrilled when this came up, and I thank my wife, Shalynn, for snapping this pic…
I’ve been a little busy lately on some time-consuming projects, so haven’t had a chance to send any updates or posts to the blog… But the signing at Barnes & Noble in Cool Springs went really well. A great evening, and my thanks to Robbie Bryan at B&N for making it happen!
My wife, Shalynn, snapped a fun picture at the event. Here it is:
It was a busy week at Parnassus Books! On Tuesday, I did my signing for Resurrection Bay and had a great time. Three days later, my old friend Cathie Pelletier did a signing for her new novel, The Summer Experiment.
Cathie and I have known each other for twenty-eight years. In 1986, I just happened to walk into the-long-gone Bookworld Bookstore in Nashville, where Cathie was signing copies of her first novel, The Funeral Makers. We struck up a conversation and I confessed I was trying to publish my first novel and she very graciously (and amazingly) offered to read it…
Wow, what a great night at Parnassus Books. The signing last night went really well. A good crowd, lots of good questions, and the chance to catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in awhile. I’m grateful to all the folks at Parnassus for hosting the event. It’s a marvelous bookstore and I encourage everyone to spend their money there!
As for catching up with a few buddies, here are a couple:
Tomorrow, June 17th, is my first signing for RESURRECTION BAY. It will be held at Parnassus Books in Nashville at 6:30 p.m. We’ll also have copies of BY BLOOD WRITTEN for sale as well. I look forward to seeing friends, family, colleagues, supporters and anyone else who wants to come and support independent bookselling!
