My next appearance will be on Saturday, May 2 from 1-2 at the Capital City Book Fair in Trenton, NJ--I'm the featured author at the Cloak and Dagger bookstore's booth. The book fair looks to be an event to warm the hearts of book lovers whatever genre you prefer--click here for details!
I'm extraordinarily excited to announce that actress and voice talent Sarah Purdum has signed on to narrate the audiobook of The Sense of Death!
The venture into audiobooks is one I never foresaw when I was writing The Sense of Death, but with versions available in paperback and ebook formats, audio was the next logical channel*. It's a valuable writing lesson to consider not only how a passage will sound to a reader's virtual "ear," but also how it will sound to a listener's actual ear!
I'm also incorporating input from a beta read by my fabulous editor, Jen Blood--adding a bit of mayhem to keep things interesting and fleshing out a character who wasn't quite as fully realized as the others. (A beta read is one that focuses on structure, plot, and characters rather than detailed grammar or word choice.) Check out Jen's own suspense thrillers--highly recommended!
On Tuesday I'll be at the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Symposium in NYC--I'm especially looking forward to hearing Laura Lippman, author of one of my favorites, What the Dead Know, interview Lois Duncan, author of I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Happy haunted reading!
