YA Writer Joelle Charbonneau

I'm looking forward to seeing my friend Joelle Charbonneau in Raleigh Saturday, November 7. She'll be at Quail Ridge Books and Music at 3:00 talking about her great new stand-alone thriller Need from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Readers will probably want to check out the book's website to get a taste of what the book is like.

Spring Mystery Tour Updates

I've just received the news that Ann Cleeves has had a family emergency and will have to cancel her North Carolina tour. All the bookstores will have her books on hand for purchase—we just won't be able to have them signed.

The Friday, May 8 Barnes & Noble event has been canceled.

Elaine Viets will be unable to be at the Saturday, May 9 event at McIntyre's, but she will have been by the store to sign stock.

Sarah Shaber will join Marcia Talley, Frances Brody and me for a discussion on Saturday, May 9, at McIntyre's.

Dorothy Cannell's THE THIN WOMAN

I just saw a posting that Random House has just published a Kindle edition of Dorothy Cannell's first mystery, The Thin Woman, for only 99 cents. It's a great book that brought me through a very tough evening and one I've recommended often. I just had the pleasure of moderating a panel which boasted Dorothy as one of the members. She's as funny and delightful as ever! BTW, I just downloaded it too!
