While all this has been going on, I've been working on my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery and gearing up for the launch of my next Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery, A Crushing Death, which will appear in March--not sure exactly when.
I can't believe it's #12 in this series. I'd found a great photo for the cover, but didn't know where I got it, so we had to go for another--but this one fits. There is a condemned pier in the story, and this pretty much gives the impression of having seen better days.
And yes, I've been planning another blog tour--more about that later.
I've also been slowly, but surely getting some in-person events lined up.
The first one will be in March--fingers crossed that I'll actually have books by then--when I'll head over to the coast to speak to the Central Coast Sisters in Crime about, drum roll please, Putting Together and Promoting a Blog Tour. That's scheduled for March 26 at 10 a.m. at the Nipomo Library.
I belong to the Central Coast Chapter but don't live near there so I don't get to meetings often.
A high school teacher emailed and asked if I'd come speak to a couple of her classes about writing--of course I said "yes." I only know it'll be in April.
I'm also going to have a booth at the Jackass Mail Run here in Springville--it's only a half day affair--also an April event.
The only conference I'm planning to attend this year is the Public Safety Writers Association's which is always held in July in Las Vegas. http://policewriter.com
I'm sure as time passes, I'll have a lot more appearances to add to my calendar.
