2020: A New Year. A New Decade.

Here we are entering a new year and a new decade. Time flies. Last year was a whirlwind for me. I had another short story published in “Cooked to Death: Cold Cut Files,” which is Volume IV of this great series of anthologies edited by Rhonda Gilliland. So much fun to have my story included!!

Then…wait for it…yes! Finally. My first novel, Black Friday was published in July 2019. What a rush to hold that first physical copy of my book! I’m forever grateful to Lori L. Lake (Launch Point Press) for taking a chance on me. Black Friday will be the first in the MC McCall series. Here’s to hoping book two, Silent Service makes it off the presses in 2020. #Goals

Back in October 2019 good friend, MB Panichi and I did a co-launch at Once Upon a Crime bookstore. MB read from her latest book, Blood and Roses and I did a reading from Black Friday. We served snacks and had an animated Q&A session with the attendees. HUGE thanks to Devin at Once Upon a Crime for allowing us to launch at the best bookstore in Minneapolis!

I started out 2020 with a bang! The folks who coordinate the monthly Bookstube at the Bierstube event invited me to be the January author. And to promote the event (and my book!) I did an interview at KDWA Radio in Hastings, MN. Check out their website to listen to the interview. Or click on the link on my Home page.
Who knew radio interviews would be so much fun!! I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Mo McNeary for putting this introvert at ease and making the experience a blast.

In March and April I’ll be participating in a few author panels along with fellow sisters (and brothers) in crime. See my Home page for details on all the panel events. Whew! What a busy year already! And dang, but I gotta get to work and finish the second book! Please buy a copy (print or Kindle) of Black Friday and leave a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads! Thanks for all your support!

Hope you all are having a great 2020!
