I hope a lot of you are busily thinking up ideas for a victim or murderer in my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery. The details are in the blog before this one.
Yesterday, I attended the San Joaquin chapter of Sister in Crime which meets in Fresno. Patricia Smiley was the guests author--and I was glad to meet her and bought two of her books. She was an entertaining speaker and very friendly.
Next month, I'll be doing a panel with two other authors about working with small presses--something I've been doing for a long while. My very first publisher was Dorchester, then I was published by two different companies who turned out to be crooked, I've had two publishers die on me. My Deputy Tempe Crabtree series is published by Mundania Press--and my latest Rocky Bluff, Fringe Benefits, is published by Tigress Press.
I know lots about small presses.
