Author Update

My book signing Saturday was both

successful and enjoyable. Borders in Annapolis is a big store that offers

authors a small space from which to greet readers, but all the folks I met were

enthusiastic about my latest novel. If they had my other titles I'd have done

much better, but I did come close to running out of books. That, plus visits

from a couple of very…

Memorial Day greetings

Memorial Day is the kind of holiday that begs us to make a powerful statement, but I

think all the important things have already been said. Thomas Campbell said that

the patriot's blood is the seed of Freedom's tree. Joseph Campbell told us that

a hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than

oneself. Aaron Kilbourn said that the dead soldier's silence…

Meet Me in MD tomorrow

Tomorrow my Maryland friends will be able to find me at Borders in Annapolis.  The store, at 1115 Annapolis Mall is just three miles from the U.S. Naval Academy.  You can enjoy a cup of coffee at their Seattle's Best Cafe and browse their extensive book, CD and DVD collections.  They have a great local interest section and lots of autographed novels from local authors. And Saturday I will be happy to sign any of my novels for you in person.  Just visit between 1pm to 5pm.

Author Update

Few experiences are better than spending time in an independent bookstore. That was my Saturday afternoon at One More Page. aside from fine wines and gourmet chocolates the store offers a wonderful collection of great reads. I enjoyed meeting some of their customers and a look around told me that they were indeed discriminating readers. One big clue: New York Times best sellers were not prominently featured. In fact, the few in the store were on the discount cart!

Another Cool Review

Don Meek’s wife picked up a copy of Russian Roulette at one of my book signings at Dulles Airport. Don wrote to me with very positive feedback. I value his viewpoint as a 30 year veteran of law enforcement, so I’ve made his comments this week’s featured review on my web site. Take a look at what he had to say. www.ascamacho.com

Author Update

It was a really great weekend, starting with the very successful Loudoun County Public Library's Writers' Conference. My plot class was well received – I plotted a thriller from scratch with the help of the 25 or so attendees.

After the Loudon County event I headed to Borders Express in Dulles Town Center for a book signing. Aside from signing several books I had a chance to chat with Joseph O’Donnell, publisher of the Eerie Digest. His photographer took lots of pictures, many of which… Continue

Another Cool Review

I met Tricia Patterson at my final book signing at Borders in Bowie MD. She bought Collateral Damage and as always I asked her for some feedback when she had read it. She was kind enough to send me a note afterward. Ms. Patterson actually apologized for reading the book in one day - although I love it when a reader can't put one of my novels down. And being an English teacher she did point out a few typos she found. But she also made clear that she enjoyed the story and my writing style.… Continue

author update

I've been busy - writing a play, reviewing for a couple different outlets, blogging and working on projects for th Virginia Writers Club.  Still, with several events coming up I know I have to get the promotional machinery running again or I may be forgotten by my readers.  I've learned that the only time the world beats a path to your door is when you're in the bathroom. 

Since my last entry I had a book signing at the Borders Express in…
