Upcoming Events for DON’T LOOK DOWN

The weeks around a book release are always a whirlwind. Before the big day, I’m writing essays and answering Q&As and doing whatever advance promotion I can; once the book is out in the world, there’s a tour (even when I say I’m not doing one, apparently!). I’ve been lucky enough to have two wonderful launch parties — one in Toronto at Ben McNally Books, and one in New York at the Mysterious Bookshop — and to present DON’T LOOK DOWN at other events, including the Ontario Library Association Superconference. I also have some fabulous events coming up:


Friday, February 28th, at 7pm: I’ll be at the fabulous Kew & Willow Books in Queens with two friends, authors Alex Segura and Nancy Bilyeau. Join us for a relaxed evening of books, wine, and Star Trek chat (yes, we are all fans). Free event, open to all.


Wednesday, March 11th, at 6:30pm: There’s only one store I’ve visited on every book tour, and that’s Scottsdale’s legendary Poisoned Pen. I’m excited to be back to talk about DON’T LOOK DOWN! Free event, open to all.


Will you be at Left Coast Crime in San Diego? I’m on a couple of panels, both on Saturday, March 14th: at 10:15am, I’ll be talking about “Crime Fiction and Reality: How do today’s headlines impact fiction?” with Tracy Clark, Puja Guha, Keith Raffel, and moderator Laurie Rockenbeck. At 1:15pm, I’m on “Let’s Talk About Sex (in Mysteries)” with Ed Aymar, David Corbett, Jennifer Kincheloe, and moderator Holly West. A good time will be had by all! (I hope.)


Saturday, March 21st, at 4pm: I have the pleasure of appearing at the Virginia Festival of the Book this year. I’m on the “Dangerous Territories” panel with Don Bentley, Gabino Iglesias, Rip Rawlings, and moderator Steve Weddle. Free event, open to all!
