The weekend is almost here, and I’m almost ready.
The Tucson Festival of Books is a huge event, held each year in Tucson, Arizona. I’ve heard about it for years and have wanted to attend. But the stars never seemed to be aligned properly to permit it.
Last year about this same time, two of my writing buddies and I drove north to Colorado Springs for the 2013 Left Coast Crime gathering. The Tucson Festival was going on about that same time, so once again I wouldn’t make it. Left Coast Crime is also a really big event and we had a fabulous time. It was my debut as a newly published writer, Continue reading And Now, The Tucson Festival of Books!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, talking parrots and animals of good taste! This is the announcement I’ve been waiting for—The Easter Egg Murder is now available on Kindle!
I was excited when the actual book was delivered into my hands. I could thumb through its pages, knowing these were my words, and now everybody could read them. But the world has changed in the last couple of years (yes, no kidding! It has! Just look around at all the new gadgets!) Now many readers prefer to acquire their books in e-book form. Those of you who still prefer the feel and heft of a book in your hand, to be able to turn those paper pages, even to makes notes in the margins, my book is still available to you in that format. But for those who eschew building more bookshelves to contain your literature, the Kindle is a Godsend. Those of you who own one already know that hundreds and hundreds of books can be stored for your reading pleasure. It’s a small device, easily transported, and far easier to rely on when on the road. Armloads of books no longer need to be taken in suitcases to satisfy your thirst for reading.
I’m beyond excited to reach this goal. You can even “take a look inside” now! It shows the first couple of chapters to entice you into purchasing.
I would love to learn there had been a major swarm of mystery readers clicking on The Easter Egg Murder and either downloading it to their Kindle or deciding to become the owner of the paperback book. Either way, I encourage you to check it out. I hope you will be pleasantly surprised by the story.
