A Few Reminders for Friday

I just have a few reminders for you today. The first is of course that today is the last day to vote in Round 3 of the "World's Favorite Detective" tournament. If you haven't vote yet, go here to vote immediately! I am headed out to Mystery Lovers Bookshop tomorrow morning for Alafair Burke's event, so I probably won't be able to get this week's results up until tomorrow night or Sunday, but I'll get them up!

Also, don't forget to enter for your chance to win a signed, first edition copy of Ken Mercer's debut novel, SLOW FIRE. If you haven't entered yet, you can do so here.

Some news I just learned this week is that Foul Play Books in Westerville, Ohio, is going to be hosting a killer line-up on Saturday, May 1st. It includes Sophie Littlefield, Brad Parks and Carla Buckley. I'll definitely be there. If you're in the area, I hope you'll come, too!

Foul Play will also have Rosemary Harris on April 27th. Unfortunately that's the day I'm flying back from California, so I won't be able to make it, but if you can, I HIGHLY recommend it. Rosemary's new book in the Dirty Business Mystery Series is DEAD HEAD and I can't wait for it! If you go, be sure to tell her "hi" for me!

The Spinetingler short story nominations have been announced. And we have to send out shout outs to nominees Hilary Davidson, Sophie Littlefield and Paul Brazill! No, I'm not trying to influence your votes, just giving props to my pals. Voting will begin next week, though, so I hope if you have some time you'll stop over to read the nominees and return next week to vote.

That's it for this Friday. Hope your weekend is wonderful and warm. We have snow on the ground this morning and 50s in the forecast for tomorrow. Gotta love Northeast Ohio weather...or not. Happy Reading!

That will be a great line-up at Foul Play on the 1st! Can't wait to hear all about it from you and Naomi!

Ahh yes, snowy, slushy Spring in Ohio, when you've got 2 or 3 different jackets/coats/rainslickers in the car for whatever the day may bring. Drove me nuts. Hang in there! Just keep remembering that you'll be in the California sunshine in a less than a month! ;-)

Christine's got that right! Hang in there, Jen.
