Alexander for again traveling with me and helping me at the event. I took my camera; but forgot to take it out of my computer case, so have no photos to post of the event.
I received an order from the Bookworms bookstore in Thatcher/Safford, and they are now selling The Wham Curse. This is the second outlet for the book in the Gila Valley; the Eastern Arizona Museum in Pima has been selling the book for about two months.
I provided the Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale with a review copy of the book and today they agreed to stock it for sale in their store. This is particularly exciting to me because Poisoned Pen is not only one of the premier independent bookstores in the country, but they are also a highly respected publisher of mysteries. They are known for selling quality stories.
So eventhough we are in August, when Arizona makes devils long for the coolness of hell (116 today), and we have had a steady parade of book-related and family events, several health related crisis, and more to do than time can accomodate, it has been a great time for our family and for my new career in writing.
