Black Friday was not a dark day for me. I greeted quite a crowd of shoppers at the Borders Express in Dulles Town Center Mall, along with two of my favorite authors, Candice Poarch and Rique Johnson. I saw no signs of an economic downturn for mystery fiction that day.
And the Books-A-Million in Alexandria VA WAS able to get copies of Blood and Bone for my signing Saturday. I was scheduled to sign them until 6 pm but had to leave nearly an hour early when I ran out of books to sign. New fan Ralph Nordenhold took a few nice photos of me at the signing. You can see some of them on my web site
, if you push the news/events button.
I also got word that the web site for the Echelon Press holiday contest was overwhelmed with orders. The publisher has now built separate pages for each author, which means a new URL. However, the button on my web site
will take you to the right place so when you order Blood and Bone by December 19 you will still be entered into a drawing for a $25.00 VISA Gift Card.
Order to enter, and then check the new photos.
