In about three weeks I’ll be on the way to Indianapolis and my third Bouchercon. I can’t wait!
CITY OF DRAGONS got the push off from goal to paper after my first Bouchercon in Anchorage, in 2007. I now have the thrill of going to my third Bouchercon, knowing the book will be coming out February 2nd from Thomas Dunne/Minotaur Books, and that it is dedicated to my family and the friends I met in Anchorage.
It’s been quite a journey. 🙂
In the meantime, I’ve been busy. I’m involved in several events at the PPWebCon (first ever virtual crime fiction convention!), and have a lot of work to do before leaving for Indianapolis. I just concluded a two part interview with Jen Forbus on the fabulous Jen’s Book Thoughts. I also enjoyed an interview with thriller writer Kathy-Diane Reveille on her wonderful Behind the Books blog. I’ve got a post for the always interesting WordNerd coming up, and I just wrote a Noir Bar review on one of my favorite film noirs–In a Lonely Place–for Pop Syndicate.
I’ve also released the trailer for CITY OF DRAGONS … and am proud to say that the footage is genuine 1940 San Francisco film, in color.
I hope you like it … and hope to see you at one or more of my stops along the way to Bouchercon … and maybe even at the conference itself. Thanks for reading Writing in the Dark!
