Here’s the latest reading and live event for In Broad Daylight. I was so happy to visit Bird & Beckett Books here in SF on August 7th. We had a great crowd and this reading comes just as my good friend and co-reader Jim Sidel gears up for the publication of his novel The Last Survey. It'll be coming out from Roundabout Press in 2014.
What’s more news this week is that I'm teaching an ONLINE crime writing class this fall through Stanford Continuing Studies. Info at:
Writing Mysteries and Thrillers: How to Craft Successful Plot, Action, and Characters
Registration starts August 19 and the class is limited in size so hurry.
Another reading! If you’re here in the Bay Area, I hope you’ll come out this Saturday, August 17th to Borderlands Books in the Mission for a reading from In Broad Daylight. Who knows? You might even see Scott Sigler there! If you'd like a signed copy of IBD, you can pre-order yours from Borderlands following these directions.
My friends at the Booked Podcast run a sister site to CrimeWAV, one that has a lot of what you guys are looking for: stories, interviews, reviews, you name it! Lots of FREE audio content! I was on there a while back reading from Young Junius. You may recall I co-ran that here. These guys have put together an Anthology of awesome fiction called, The Booked. Anthology! It's now here on Amazon. In it, you’ll find my new story “To the Bone." Need another reason to buy it? Better not. It's here on Amazon.
My next reading is at Borderlands Books on Aug. 17th, 3PM. If you're able, come on out. If not and you'd like a signed copy of IBD for yourself, here's how to contact them for signed copies.
You in the UK? If so, check out This Is Life here. It's a part of Amazon's UK Kindle 100 for August! Just one quid!
