Ah, September. While I’m past the back-to-school days, it’s definitely “back to books” time! I’m deep into the first draft of Spiced to Death, first in the Seattle Spice Shop Mysteries. Pepper–yes, that’s really her name–Reece is about to celebrate her first anniversary as owner of a long-established spice shop in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market. But she’s forced to investigate when a homeless man dies on her doorstep, and one of her most trusted employees is charged with his murder.
Yesterday, I got to invent a restaurant that Pepper and her friends enjoy, and dang, made myself seriously hungry. That’s a good thing, right?
Delighted to report that Costco is now carrying Death al Dente in the 5 Montana stores (Billings, Bozeman, Helena, Missoula, and Kalispell). I’ll be signing books in the Kalispell Costco on Saturday, Sept 14, from 12 – 2. Hope to see you there!
In the Denver area? A million writers coming to you! Well, maybe not a million, but more than 40 writers, including me, will participate in a group book signing, free & open to the public, on Friday, September 20, starting at 7:00 pm, at the Renaissance Hotel, 3801 Quebec Street (near I-70). See www.BroadwayBookMall.com for the complete author list. Hosted by Colorado Gold, the annual Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers conference.
In the Flathead? Join the fun at Local Authors Night at the Whitefish Community Library, Thursday, October 3, from 4 to 8 p.m. Local authors will mingle and chat with readers from 4-6, then read from their work from 6 to 8 p.m. (I’m first up, at 6 p.m.) Sponsored by the Library and the Authors of the Flathead.
My regular posts on legal issues will resume soon — promise! Meanwhile, the Saturday Writing Quotes continue, without pause.
