Promotion - love it or hate it? And what about Networking Sites?

We're having an intense discussion over at Type M For Murder about the value of promotion. How much? How much is too much? How much do you hate it? We've also started discussing the value of net working sites such as this one. Have a look, if that's your interest:

Modern Policing

Over at Type M 4 Murder ( we've been having a lively discussion on the RCMP Taser incident at Vancouver airport, and what policing means to us. We are none of us police officers, so we don't have any special insight, but we are citizens. Check it all out.

Book Tour (Cross-posted from Type M 4 Murder)

Vicki here. I'm writing this sitting in a Starbucks in Phoenix waiting until it's time for me to go for my TV appearance. This evening I'll be at Poisoned Pen bookstore in Scottsdale, and I'm really looking forward to that. The book tour is coming to an end, and I'll be glad to be heading back North. To the cold and snow. Yummy. (BTW that is not a sarcastic comment). The highlights: Four Eyed Frog books in Gualala, California (pronounced Wallawalla). A delightful store in a lovely little…

Audio - Cross Posted from Type M 4 Murder

Vicki here, and tonight I'm in Fort Bragg, California heading for the improbably named Gualala where I'm doing a booksigning tomorrow at Four Eyed Frog Bookstore. With a name like that, I'm expecting a fun place!

I've been on the road since May. I've crossed half of Canada, from Oakville, Ontario to Tofino (as far west as you can go before getting wet) and by this time next week I'll have driven from Alaska to San Diego. I'm getting very, very tired of the CDs I have in the car. I love… Continue

Thanks, Lillian. I see that you live in Niagara Falls. I've just bought a house in Prince Edward County. Scare the Light Away and Burden of Memory are set in Ontario, around Muskoka, and In the Shadow of the Glacier is set in B.C. Hope you get over that slump!

I look forward to getting your books.
I am finally getting around to reading Canadian authors. (I am Canadian)

Hi Vicki,

Nice the kayak! I used to kayak a lot in the Dismal Swamp in Virginia, which is the setting for my first book.
I have an undeveloped idea I may pursue eventually, a crime novel set in Canada, so I may ask you someday for advice on setting! We love you Canucks down here in the U. S. of A. Happy Travels.

Just finished it! Took me longer to get to it than I planned but once I started I read the whole thing in a day. Vicki, I am so impressed! I knew from Scare the Light Away that you are a really good writer and do great characters, but this is so totally different and yet you retained all of your strong points. Molly is so well drawn and I adore John already and am hoping so much that the relationship with Molly and the RCMP (whose name I forget how to spell) develops more in the next book. I also very much liked the subjects dealt with in the book - from aging hippies (I can relate) to current environment issues to women in traditionally men's jobs and the problems they encounter. Not to mention stalkers and bike thieves. Anyway, bottom line - well done!

Hi Vicki -- book arrived today. Thanks! I have to finish the one I am reading now and read one for my book group and then I am free and clear and can get to it.

I have two huskies:

Stuart, Russel, Simon & Rebus:

You know, I never saw bears until I went to northern BC and the Yukon and NW Territories. Then, it was like I saw them all the time. A grizzly ran out in front of us in Kananaskis. We saw another bear just off the highway, near Calgary. Also saw a pack of wolves near Banff. I guess there's something to the reality of humans encroaching more on the wild, and the animals being forced into populated areas. With bears, that's (of course) a scary situation. Wild animals are always unpredictable.

Believe it or not, I live in a village that has a skunk as its mascot, but my dogs haven't been sprayed. Yet.
