Pre Holiday Gifts
I think I’ve just spent the best four days that a writer could hope for.
First in San Diego with family and friends and a signing at Mysterious Galaxy
. The crowd was warm, receptive and generous. It was a holiday party and the second guest author, Victoria Laurie
, has a half dozen books featuring Abby Cooper, P.I. and psychic intuitive. Victoria is a real psychic herself so I was a little nervous sitting right beside her! Not because I don’t believe, but because I DO.
Then Monday here at The Tattered Cover
. If ever there was an incentive for a writer to keep at it, it’s being the guest of honor at a signing in her hometown. The Tattered Cover is more than a brick and mortar bookstore. It’s a Denver icon and I was honored beyond the telling of it at the warmth of the reception I received. The RMFW crowd, my writers group (including our own Mario and Jeff Shelby
who made the trip from Texas!!) friends, old and new, locals and out of towners (Shannon Baker from Arizona), and the staff at TC—all were wonderful. I’m still glowing. I can’t thank you all enough.
A little news: we’ve sold the three books to Droemer for publication in Germany as mass-market originals. Of course, I’m using the “royal” we—it’s all my agent, Scott Miller’s work and the great people at Trident Media.
Now, I’m off to work on the galley for Blood Drive. I hope I can concentrate….
