It’s Friday, and almost the end of the first week of my blog tour forĀ House of the Hanging Jade. As this post goes live, I’ll be traveling to Malice Domestic in Bethesda, Maryland. It’s a great place for readers and writers to connect and meet up with old and new friends. There are lots of fun and fascinating panel discussions (I’ll be on a panel Sunday called “Murder Out of the Past”), the Agatha Awards banquet, book signings (mine is Sunday afternoon), a game of Malice Go Round (like speed dating with authors- I’ll be playing along at 10:00 on Friday morning), a silent auction, and lots of other opportunities to meet and greet. In the meantime, I hope you’ll take a look at some of the blog tour stops I have scheduled today, and in particular, Melina’s Book Blog:

Review and giveaway: Melina’s Book Blog

Giveaways: Paranormal and Romantic Suspense Reviews, Jen’s Reading Obsession (Please note, this blog has content that may be quite offensive to some. My book, though featured on the blog, is not offensive and is considered a very clean read), Deal Sharing Aunt, and Kishan Paul.

I’d like to take a minute to thank the teachers, staff, and students of the Upper Township Middle School, where I had the honor and the privilege of talking to 8th graders yesterday about the craft of writing, my path to publication, and all things books. The students were respectful, attentive, and engaging and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had as an author. Thank you all!

Until next time,
