It has indeed been a fun week, topped off with a fine showing signing my novels at the Borders Express in Dulles Town Center. We ran completely out of two of my titles - The Troubleshooter and Collateral Damage - but if you’re in that area, don’t worry. They’ll order more.
Also, my new Blood and Bone trailer turned up in a few new places including on BN.com
and popular video site Revver
And I was a guest on the BlogTalkRadio program Book World News. You can still listen to the Book World News Interview
But best of all, in the aftermath of Bouchercon, yours truly was name checked all over the internet. My publisher, Karen Syed mentioned me in a Bouchercon recap in her blog about “The Life of a Publisher
”. Then Jared Case referenced me on his “Post-Game, and Onward” blog entry on his excellent blog, A Case of Murder
. Fellow mystery author Persia Walker talked mentioned me in the post “Bouchercon & Good News” on her blog, Criminal Musings
, and I turned up in Dana King’s Bouchercon recap on his blog One Bite at a Time
. Finally, co-author Lisa Spahr thanked me for my part in the book “WWII Radio Heroes” on her insightful blog, POW Letters
And even that’s not the BIG news. The Troubleshooter
, the novel in which I introduced my fictional detective Hannibal Jones, is now available for the first time in hardcover! It’s not in any bookstores yet, but Amazon.com is running a very special promotion for the book, bundling it with two other Hannibal Jones novels for a phenomenal price. Seize the opportunity to be among the first to see Hannibal between hard covers.
