The official launch, that is. FORTY & OUT was previewed at Killer Nashville in August, and it’s been available online for several weeks, but now it’s time for The Event:
Saturday, September 27th – 3 p.m.
Barnes & Noble
2720 Towne Drive, Beavercreek, OH
(across from the Mall at Fairfield Commons)
After telling me their book events don’t draw much of a crowd, the B&N Community Business Development Manager (half-jokingly?) pointed out that a recent signing by sci-fi author John Scalzi had an audience of about thirty. “So we’ll set up ten chairs for you.”
I have no delusions of attracting more people than Scalzi, but ten?! I hope you’ll help me show B&N that mystery fans are just as dedicated – if not more so! – than sci-fi readers.
Plus it will be fun! I’ll read a bit from FORTY & OUT, talk about the long, strange journey the story took to reach publication, and answer questions. Rumor has it there may be prizes, too.
Hope to see you there!
