To add to that typical finishing-a-manuscript chaos, I am trying to squeeze in a bit of publicity for MISTAKEN IDENTITY, the third Lucinda Pierce book, now popping up in bookstores everywhere.
Right now, almost every waking moment–and sometimes in my sleeping ones–I am residing in the universe of Homicide Detective Lucinda Pierce. It’s a far more exciting place than my world but I miss spending time writing on this blog, battling with 140 characters on Twitter and visiting group sites to chat with readers and friends. A little temporary internet discipline is probably good for the soul but having to skip my yoga classes might make me crazy.
Nonetheless, I won’t be totally incommunicado for the next month. You’ll find me at these places:
- This Thursday, April 8, I will be Helen Ginger’s guest on her blog talking about my not-quite-normal writing life.
- On Saturday, April 17, from 1-4 pm I’ll be at Sophienburg Museum, 401 West Coll Street in New Braunfels for their Meet the Author event, a fundraiser for the museum.
- On Saturday, May 1, at 9:10 am I’ll be at the Toastmasters District 55 Spring Conference at the YO Ranch Resort in Kerrville, Texas, with fellow authors Ben Rehder and Joan Upton Hall for a panel discussion, “Why We Write?”
I’ll be back here when I can, tweet on occasion and catch up with the real world when possible.
And, Mom, if you miss me too much this month, go to the Reading Room on my website–you can click a cover, read a chapter from any one of my books and pretend I’m reading aloud just to you.
