In other bookstore news, Mystery Writers of America announced the winners of the 2013 Raven Awards, which recognizes "outstanding achievement in the mystery field outside the realm of creative writing." There are two this year, the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore
s in San Diego and Redondo Beach, Calif., and Oline Cogdill, who has been a journalist for more than 25 years and is the mystery columnist for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Now most of you know, Mysterious Galaxy is one of my favorite bookstores. They have always been supportive of the writing community and hosted me in signings from the release of the very first Anna Strong Chronicle. I'm happy to see them recognized.

I posted this on my Facebook page this week, but I think it's worth reposting. From the Denver Post:
ZAROZJE, Serbia—Get your garlic, crosses and stakes ready: a bloodsucking vampire is on the loose.
Or so say villagers in the tiny western Serbian hamlet of Zarozje, nestled between lush green mountain slopes and spooky thick forests. They say rumors that a legendary vampire ghost has awakened are spreading fear—and a potential tourist opportunity—through the remote village.
: Vampire on the loose in Serbia?
Seems the locals think if the Romanians can profit from Dracula, why shouldn't they?
Why indeed!!! It's what I've been trying to do since 2004!
