So next week I’m packing up and heading to St. Petersburg for Bouchercon, a chance to see my favorite mystery folks, speak on a panel, and sign some books. If you’re in the greater Tampa/St. Petersburg area, you will not want to miss this! I’ve been following the reports of red tide with trepidation, but I am stupidly optimistic sometimes, so I’m still packing a bathing suit and beach bag.
I’m also heading back to work after a largely relaxing summer. The proposal for the fifth Veronica Speedwell novel was just given the green light! (Book four, A DANGEROUS COLLABORATION is out in March, 2019.) That means I have to hit the ground running as soon as I return because I have to start the new book at the same time I’m getting the copy edits of book four in my hot little hands.
I’d also love to be able to write a little treat to offer readers who pre-order, so this is a good time to throw a suggestion out! Hit me up on Twitter to tell me what you’d like to read and just maybe I’ll be able to make it happen. Hope to see you at B’con next week!
