Our first meet-and-greet, show-and-tell program last week started off the year with amazing energy. Many thanks to the 18 members who talked for a sprightly two minutes each about their work. (And thanks to Marty Wingate, our friendly timekeeper, who kept us on pace.)
Here are just a few highlights:
- Marty Wingate led off by telling us about the book launch for THE BODIES IN THE LIBRARY, the first in her new series published by Berkley. It will be on October 8th (TPB-LFP, 7 pm).
- Debra Borchert talked about her publisher’s suggestion that she change the point of view she has used for her book. . . and her debate over how to respond.
- Julie Brown, who writes as J. L. Brown, told us that she had signed with a NY agent she met at Thrillerfest that very day! The agent will represent a new stand-alone book.
- Curt Colbert announced that the first Matt Rossiter mystery, ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER, will be released on October 8th.
- Michelle Sundholm described being in the thick of writing her first mystery. She is also a professional editor.
- Rachel Bukey said that the third in her series about Seattle Times report Ann Dexter is under contract with Epicenter/Coffeetown/Camel Press.
- Robert Herold happily announced that he has signed off on the final, final galleys for his first book, THE EIDOLA PROJECT, which will be released by Wild Rose Press in November.
