bright sunny day, temps 4, gorgeous day
But - snow and rain (or what some people call snain) in forecast for tonight. Blech. Now I could use that poutine!
What I really want to tell you about is my friend Julia Spencer-Fleming's new book. It is just out and is called ONE WAS A SOLDIER. It is brilliant. I had a chance to read an advance copy and I believe this is the BEST yet in her series, and that is saying a lot.
If you're not already of fan of Julia's, check her out. She's also won just about every award going, and rightfully so.
And - in news of my own - we now have an audio sample of Ralph Cosham reading the first few pages of A TRICK OF THE LIGHT. Just click here and you'll get a chance to hear it.
Hope the link works. It's also up on the home page of my website.
It's odd for me because it feels like showing just a little ankle. Or an artist revealing a corner of a painting. Very hard to get the full impact. But perhaps enough to whet your appetite. I'm going for the world record of metaphors in two lines.
Oh, and over at Facebook, I'll be starting the Advance Readers Copy contest in the next day or so. I'll also be giving some away on the Newsletter, which you can sign up for on my website. And, yes, definitely I'll be offering ARCs of A TRICK OF THE LIGHT to you - who have been with me almost since day one.
But I'll be starting at Facebook, to thank them for making the switch from a personal page to a fanpage. I know, if you don't know facebook this is just blah, blah, blah.
Off to answer more emails. it seems every day I forget more things. you too?
