IF YOU’RE NOT ON FACEBOOK AND MISSED MY POST ….

….  Now that it’s on the Deadly Ink website, I can officially announce that I will be the 2015 Fan Guest of Honor, Aug. 7-9, at the Hyatt in New Brunswick, NJ. I’m planning to speak about how I’m a fan because I’m a writer. And became a writer because I’m a fan. I’m in august company (in August): Brad Parks is Guest of Honor and E. F. Watkins the Toastmaster. http://www.deadlyink2014.org/Authors.html

Join me and other NJ authors (and publishers!) at the first Belmar BookCon, Pyanoe Plaza (the brick pathway at Main Street and 9th Ave), Belmar, NJ. Sunday, Oct. 12, 10am-4pm. I’ll be selling, signing, and shmoozing. And if you sometimes need to write something by hand, I have pens (imprinted with my website/blog address, of course).

BOUCHERCON PANEL ASSIGNMENT

I’m very excited to have been asked to be on a panel at Bouchercon in Long Beach, CA, on Sat., Nov. 15, 4:30-5:30. I feel as though I’ve been asked to present an Academy Award.

The panel is called “You Say Traditional, I Say Cozy: Exploring the Boundaries of the Classic Mystery Novel,” and is moderated by Sarah Chen. I share the table with John Billheimer, Paul Bishop, Linda Joffe Hull, and Eric James Miller. It’s one of the first times I’ve been on a panel about cozies that has more men than women panelists.

HOW’S MY NEW BOOK COMING ALONG?

Glad you asked. Last Monday, I posted the following on FB. Things since then haven’t changed much.
 
Let’s see. I just spent the last 8 hours in Starbucks going through all the financial records & trying to find an updated membership list for the Burlington County Natural Sciences Club; then formatted & scheduled for a Wednesday midnight posting a guest blogger’s submission for my blog site; then updated the email list & posted info. about 2 upcoming programs sponsored by the Friends of the Evesham Township Library; then started to read (& coincidentally proofread) a soon-to-be-published mystery so I can write a back cover blurb and a review. In between, I checked & answered email, scrolled through FB, & checked my Amazon rankings (ugh). New book? What new book? (It’s a good thing I retired.)
