I'm sure all the cool kids'll be abuzz with anticipation of it this week at Bouchercon in Albany. Wish I could be there to see you guys, but y'know I think a little bit of me goes a looooooong way, and I want you to be glad to see me next time.
But hey, I do have a new book on the way in the Fall and November is filling up with some very cool events I'll be defiling with my presence. First, up on November 2nd I'll be at N@B-Minneapolis with Anthony Neil Smith, Tim Lane and John Kenyon where host Paul von Stoetzel will unveil the Hogdoggin' promo-trailer and probably screen Viscosity too. It's gonna be pretty badass.

This photo from the first Twin Cities event was taken presumably before the fist fight. Read Dan Malmon's account of the evening at Crimespree online.
Murder & Mayhem in Muskego (about an hour outside of Milwaukee I've been told). If you'd like to avoid me I'll be on the Back in Black panel along with Megan Abbott, Reed Farrel Coleman and the Franks Bill & Wheeler. So, unfortunately, your otherwise-ace survival instincts will cost you some first-rate company. Maybe you and Kieran Shea can go stretch your legs during that panel. Looking forward to seeing Jon, Ruth, Jen, Jeremy, Tim as well as matching spouses, mistresses and gigolos that belong to the Crimespree crew. Dave Wahlman too, though, I hear that won't be happening... Be pretty amusing if he did show up with Dog the Bounty Hunter in hot pursuit.
Another reminder that the Broken River Kickstarter campaign is not a threat, but an opportunity to score some cool shit myself, senors Osborne and Boyle as well as Stephen Graham Jones, Pearce Hansen and the mysterious and kinky Red Hammond. Check out the benefits right here.
