Comings and Goings

I have a couple of live events to tell you about, and a personal share…

Catch Me In-Person…


— At  Printers Row Lit Fest this Saturday (only); if you’re in the Chicago area, please come on down. You can find me at the Chicago Writers Association booth (Tent “F” on Dearborn). I’ll also be on a “Kickass Heroines” panel at 2:15 pm in the Jones College Prep; Room 5010. More info here. 
Catch Me Live…

— Sunday at 6 PM CDT, we’re having a party… at least on radio. It’s the Killer Femmes Anniversary Party. A year ago, you might recall, five of us put together a Boxed Set of mysteries, including Chris Kling, Sujata Massey, Zoe Sharp, Julie Smith, and me. We called it “Killer Femmes: Five Irresistible Novels From Around the World.” All for just 99¢. It’s still selling like gangbusters, so we’re celebrating on Second Sunday Crime. We’ll all be on the air chatting about mysteries, writing, and life. Please join us and call in live!
My Personal Share (shameless brag?)…

Nobody’s Child has now been honored with two award nominations:

— The Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense (winner announced July 23)

and the other day I found out I’m a finalist for

— The Shamus Award for Best Indie PI novel (winner announced at Bouchercon in October)
Color me happy.
