We Have a Winner

Yesterday the random number creator helped me determine that Jason from Minnesota is the winner of the Hatchett contest for a copy of the MYSTERY WRITERS OF AMERICA'S THE PROSECUTION RESTS. Congratulations to Jason and thanks to everyone who entered! Check back regularly. There will be more giveaways throughout the summer. Fun stuff coming up.

Also wanted to let you know that Annie Barrows, one of the authors of THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY, had announced her U.S. book tour. You can check here for locations. Unfortunately, she isn't going to be close enough to me, but maybe she'll be in your neighborhood.

Someone who IS going to be in my neighborhood, though, is Les Roberts. Yeah, o.k., he's technically almost always in my neighborhood, but he's doing an EVENT in my neighborhood. June 23rd I'll be attending his event at the Westlake Porter Public Library. Definitely looking forward to that. If you're in this area and interested in attending, I believe you need to register.

Before that, though, don't forget that Rosemary Harris is going to be at the Barnes and Noble in Westlake. Her event is May 18th at 7:00p.m. So, that one's getting close. Excited for that. And in June, I'll be taking a drive out to Oakmont, PA, for Craig Johnson's dinner event at the Mystery Lovers Bookshop. I don't believe words are necessary for my excitement about THAT event! :)

Hope you were able to get out and show the Indie's some love on Friday. In addition, I hope you think of them more often than just the Buy Indie Day. Right now I'm so acutely aware of all they have done for me - after the big event at The Mystery Bookstore in L.A., seeing Michael Koryta at Foul Play in Columbus, and having the opportunity to meet Alafair Burke and Craig Johnson at Mystery Lovers Bookshop. The Indies can't offer these great opportunities if we aren't helping to support them.

Now it's time for me to get started reviewing some of these books I read over vacation. Yikes! Have a great week and happy reading!
