2011 Events and Appearances

January 6   I pulled three entries out of a vintage velvet hat, and the lucky winners received a signed Advance Reader's Copy (ARC) of Shot Through Velvet.  An ARC is a bound uncorrected galley or proof of the book, marked NOT FOR SALE, and printed before the official publication date. It's the complete text, but without the cover art and any final corrections, so an ARC often contains a few typos and printer's errors. Most ARCs are sent to book reviewers and other publishing world insiders.  Publishers Weekly  gave Shot Through Velvet  a starred review calling it "first-rate," and I wanted to give some of you a chance to read it before it arrived on booksellers' shelves. Thanks for entering!

February 1  Official publication date of my new mystery Shot Through Velvet. Check your local bookstore or order it online.

February 11   I will be signing copies of Shot Through Velvet from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at One More Page Books, 2200 N. Westmoreland St. #101, Arlington, VA. The signing will be held during the storeís Grand Opening. Iím very excited about this new store, so if youíre in the area, please stop by and say hello.

March 16  I'll be part of the "Mystery at Noon" Series at the Library of Congress, at 12 noon in the Pickford Theater, 101 Independence Ave. SE, Washington DC. I'll be speaking and a book signing will be held afterwards. Obviously I'm thrilled to be included--it's the Library of Congress!

March 19  I'll be on the "Death With a Sense of Humor" panel at 2 pm at the Virginia Festival of the Book in Charlottesville VA, at the Omni Hotel, 235 W. Main St. My fellow panelists will include Ellery Adams, Donna Andrews, and Rosemary Harris. Book signings will follow. The Virginia Festival of the Book is always a terrific event.  

March 23  I'll be speaking at the James M. Duncan Library, 2501 Commonwealth Ave., Alexandria VA.

April 29 - May 1  I'll be at Malice Domestic, the annual convention which honors the "traditional" mystery, this year at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda MD. Details TBA.
