Today sixteen contributors will read a brief excerpt from their story in the latest Sisters in Crime / LA anthology, LAST RESORT. That’s every single contributor! Plus two editors will be there along with our chapter prez. I’ll read a brief excerpt from “Nut Job” as well as answer any Q&A our chapter prez throws at us. It should be a fun time and I’m excited to check out a new bookstore. Can you believe I’ve never been to Vroman’s? Yeah, me neither.
Today I’m up on Writing Wranglers and Warriors where I discuss the appeal of collaborating many art forms. Writers are creative people so many of us paint, play in bands, dance, or design. I’ve been lucky to participate in several readings and book events that partner with live music or film viewings and I think this is such a wonderful idea.
Sunday, October 2 is the launch of S.W. Lauden’s Greg Salem sequel, GRIZZLY SEASON, from Rare Bird Books at Book Show. Danny Gardner and I will be reading and there will be an acoustic set from Jeff Whalen.
I’ve been invited to guest blog on Do Some Damage by my friend and fellow crime fiction writer (and fellow former SINC/LA board member!) Holly West. I discuss the importance of virtual and face time with readers and fellow authors. The key is to fool everyone into thinking it’s easy, even yourself. Now I actually have fun doing it too.
