Bill Cameron - Crime Readers Caught Reading Crime...

...in an indie bookstore.

Today we have another crime writing Bill. This one is on the opposite side of the country from Bill Loehfelm. Bill Cameron, author of the Skin Kadash series, has a new book coming out soon. How does he have time to be reading in an indie store? Shouldn't he be out promoting or something? Just kidding. But not about the new book. Bill's next installment in the Skin Kadash series is COUNTY LINE and is out next month.

In the meantime we have this OUTSTANDING picture of him from Murder by the Book in Portland, Oregon.

Here I am at Murder by the Book, Portland, Oregon, reading One Was A Soldier by Julia Spencer-Fleming. Julia's work is always wonderful, but she's really outdone herself with this one. I was chatting with Jean, one of the owners of Murder by the Book, and we agreed One Was A Soldier is one of Julia's best. Thoughtful, engrossing from the first page, with layers upon layers of intrigue and humanity. I love it!

Murder by the Book is one of my all-time favorite bookstores. In the mystery community, we have been blessed with some truly amazing shops (including other great "Murder by the Books" in other cities). Portland's MBTB is run by some of the smartest, most fun, and funny women in the bookselling biz. They've taken great care of me during my still young career, and every other writer I know who's visited feels the same way. When you come to Portland, you have to include Murder by the Book in your itinerary.

I was just commenting the other day how much I've enjoyed this series because I've been able to discover so many new indie bookstores. The love everyone has shown them has been inspiring. Thanks so much to Bill for giving us a glimpse of Murder by the Book, Portland.

I think it's a great time to show your indie store how much you appreciate them. Go forth and find a new book, then Happy Reading!

Bill is a new author to me, but you know how much I love discovering new authors. It's a compulsion of mine, along with book acquiring. LOL

I have been to this Murder by the Book and let me say that it is fabulous. We visited there last summer and I picked up a bunch of treasures. When in Portland, definitely make this bookshop a must. Then you can go to Powell's. :-)
