Yesterday gave us perfect bookselling and book signing weather. Both "Secrets Can't Be Kept Forever" and "Sherlock Holmes and the Plague of Dracula" did quite well. I hope to be there next year.

For those of you who don't already know, I have recently published my first contemporary crime novel, "Secrets Can't Be Kept Forever," in which crime reporter Ace Herron discovers that a routine case of embezzlement and childnapping is much, much more.
