February 14, 2012, used to seem like a far-off date; it’s hard to believe it’s finally here. But it is, and so is THE NEXT ONE TO FALL, the sequel to THE DAMAGE DONE. The new book has already had an enthusiastic reception, for which I am truly grateful. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped me get the word out!
If you’d like to read some background about the book, I’ve been guest-blogging about it at different sites:
- Jen’s Book Thoughts: “Perfect Place for a Murder”
- Book Reviews by Elizabeth A. White: “The Ones Who Didn’t Get Away”
- Jungle Red Writers: “It’s a… Character!”
There’s also an incredibly perceptive piece by Katrina Niidas Holm over at Criminal Element — she talks about grief as a character in the book (if you haven’t read THE DAMAGE DONE, this does have a few spoilers). Also at Criminal Element: read the first three chapters online. You can also see photos I took while I was in Peru — this slideshow features many of the settings I write about in THE NEXT ONE TO FALL.
Last week I wrote about some of the early reviews the new book is getting. That list has grown longer. I’ve also been interviewed a few times. I won’t list the pieces here, but if you want to see what I’m up to, visit the “News & Reviews” page on this blog (I try to keep that up-to-date).
Thanks again for all the support. I’m looking forward to seeing some of you over the next few days at the party in New York City, and while I’m on tour (first up: Houston, Austin, Scottsdale, and Glendale!).
