Baltimore Washington International Airport was packed on the day before Independence Day, and that helped me sign a better than average number of books. Besides, manager Dave keeps me supplied with coffee and pound cake.
Westfield Mall was a good deal less busy on Saturday. Still I had a good time and signed more than enough books to make it worth the drive. Sadly the Starbucks there is actually outside the Mall, but we make do.
Also this week, my review of Ann Parker's "Leaden Skies"
appeared in this month's "The Big Thrill," the newsletter of the International Thriller Writers. As I said there, if you think you've seen it all in the realm of political intrigue, you're in for a treat when Parker shows you see how it worked in the 19th Century Wild West.
