Nonetheless, it’s felt like a really busy month.
So this happened.
Meet my new granddaughter and first grandchild. Isn't she beautiful?
And then this happened…
Here I am at Malice Domestic 2013 "speed-dating" with partner-in-crime Sheila Connolly. Speed-dating means you go to 20 tables of readers and have 2 minutes to pitch your book. I have to admit I had fun, though I think one advantage of being married for 1000 years should be that you don't have to do any speed-dating.
Meanwhile, this also happened…
Advanced Reader Copies of Clammed Up!
I’m giving away an Advance Reader Copy of Clammed Up to one lucky commenter on the blog today. If you’re interested, just leave me a note in the comments.
And finally, this happened.
This is the pile of manuscript submissions for the next Level Best Books anthology Best New England Crime Stories 2014: Stone Cold that arrived while I was off doing those other things.
I guess you know what I’ll be doing this month!
Don’t forget to leave a comment if you want an ARC of Clammed Up!
