The last time I was in Houston, I came home with a particularly vicious strain of food poisoning that kills babies and the elderly and has been known to cause paralysis in healthy adults.
I’m fairly confident this trip will be better, but let’s face it; the bar is set pretty damn low.
All that aside, I'm super excited about visiting Murder by the Book. I’ve heard great things about the store, so it should be a lot of fun. If you’re in the Houston area and want to stop by, I’ll be discussing the book and signing copies at 5:00 on Saturday, August 14th.
This is going to be my last out of town stop on the book tour. I’m doing one more signing at The Bookworm in Omaha on Wednesday, August 18th, but that’s it until Bouchercon this October in San Francisco. As happy as I am about not having to fight through airports anymore, part of me is sad to see it come to an end. I’ve had a great time visiting the stores, talking to people about the book, and meeting new friends. I’m already looking forward to doing it all again for the next book.
In other news, we’re 20 days away from the UK release of COLD KISS, and I can't wait. I was hoping to get over to London for the release, but unfortunately that’s not going to happen this time around. The good news is that Simon and Schuster UK is publishing two more of my books in the next year, so I’ll definitely make it over for at least one of them. If you’d like to download a sample of COLD KISS, you can get one through Simon and Schuster, here.
There were also a couple great reviews for The Cold Kiss that came in this week. There’s a review of the audio book that you can find here, and a very thorough (and slightly spoiler-ish) review of the book here.
Now, off to Houston... Wish me luck.
