From March 20 - 23 I'll be in Monterey for Left Coast Crime
, the West Coast's annual mystery convention that bounces to a different location each year.
If you'll be there, you can catch me on two panels:
Thursday, March 20
Leap of Faith: Writers Who Took Alternative Paths to Publication
With Charles Rosenberg, Barbara Hodges, Claire Johnson, and Cindy Sample
Saturday, March 22
Mystery Far Afield
With Jeffrey Siger, Lisa Alber, Aileen Baron, and Anne Cleeland
I didn't do an official book tour for Pirate Vishnu
after the book came out last month, but after the book launch party I had the opportunity to do three joint events with friends. And you know what? I'm now completely convinced that doing joint events with friends is the way to go. It's not only that we can draw a bigger audience and help readers discover other books we love--it's the fact that it's so much more fun.
In our interactions with each other, we chat about things that are entertaining for both ourselves and the audience.
