Believe it or not, some of my best friends are writers.
April Moore, for instance, is very excited to announce her book, Folsom's 93: The Lives and Crimes of Folsom Prison's Executed Men, is now shipping to those who pre-ordered. It will be available for Kindles on July 1st.
I believe this photo was taken by a mysterious friend of April's who just happened to receive a review copy of the book before April even received her author copies. I picked the photo off April's blog without even asking permission, so I might be in double trouble with her and with the photographer.
You can obtain your own print copy of Folsom's 93 from amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com. And to learn more about April and this excellent biographical history of the men executed at Folsom Prison, visit the Folsom's 93 website and blog. April will be my guest blogger on Thursday, July 11th.
Mike Befeler's fifth Paul Jacobson geezer lit mystery, Care Homes are Murder, will be released on June 19th. “A Hawaiian vacation goes awry for memory-challenged Paul when a death at an assisted-living facility seems suspicious. Enjoy the laughs as he tackles his fifth case.”—Library Journal
Mike will be my guest blogger on Thursday, June 27th.
And I hope you'll stop by tomorrow so I can introduce Colby Marshall, author of the thriller, Chain of Command. She has written a great blog post about how to write a crappy blog post. You bloggers won't want to miss this one.
Just a side note about unplugging from the television news. It's not as hard as I thought it would be. Recording the broadcast and then fast-forwarding to the weather worked just fine. Skipping over the news headlines on my computer was easy. And I have my good old print newspaper to scan for the really important stuff.
