I’ll be in and around New York City this week, soaking up big city sunshine and doing Fun Stuff in honor of the 2014 Edgar Awards. I’ve also agreed to cover the Book Launch party for the MWA’s Newest Anthology Ice Cold for The Green Man Review / Sleeping Hedgehog. From the Mystery Writers of America announcement about the event:
On Tuesday, April 29th, we will be launching our newest anthology, Ice Cold, edited by Jeffery Deaver and Raymond Benson. The launch party will be held at The Mysterious Bookshop, 58 Warren Street, New York, NY. Phone number is: 212-587-1011. The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. and many of the contributors are scheduled to appear. In addition, many of the 2014 Edgar® Award nominees will also be at the bookstore.
… And me! I’ll be there! Though you won’t know me because I’ll be incognito. If you do see through my clever disguise, tell me to buy you a drink, and I will! ‘Cause good sleuthing deserves to be rewarded.
Ever wanted to ask authors weird questions online? Now’s your chance! Bitten by Books is hosting another launch, and this one includes my Lovecraft-inspired tale of eerie architecture, “In Libitina’s House.” Clipped from the site:
