Launch Day is almost here! BITTERROOT LAKE, my suspense debut written as Alicia Beckman, launches next week, Tuesday, April 13. Since we can’t get together in person for the usual book talk or interview, I want you to know where you can find me online this next week, and where you can read guest blogs I’ve written and interviews with me. Of course, you can find the full list of events and where to buy the book on my website.

If you’re curious about the origins of this book, the pen name, or the process of writing it, I hope you’ll enjoy these Interviews and guest posts:
Writers Who Kill – interview Interviewer Elaine Davis asks great questions—and I love that she didn’t realize Alicia is me, even though she’s reviewed at least two of my cozies!
The Big Thrill – interview Interviewer Terri Nolan of the International Thriller Writers got me thinking with her quesions.
Poisoned Pen Bookstore blog Librarian and reviewer Lesa Holstine asked me to write about the backstory—the origins of Bitterroot Lake.
And for my good friends at the Wicked Cozy Authors, I talked about creating an entirely fictional town and working with graphic artist and painter Francesca Droll to create the map inside the book.
Finally, let me share this marvelous review from Kristopher Zgorski of BOLO Books. It’s enormously gratifying when a reviewer truly gets what an author is doing with a book, especially when it’s a little different from previous books, and maybe even sees a few things the author didn’t! Kristopher won the Mystery Writers of America’s Raven Award for his work a few years ago, and his kind words touch me deeply.
I hope you’ll pick up or order a copy of Bitterroot Lake, in hardcover, ebook, or audio, at your usual online or independent bookseller, and let me take you on a journey to the water’s edge.
