STRESS FRACTURE Launch Party and Crime Writers’ Workshops

28 Mar

STRESS FRACTURE, the first in my new Dub Walker series, is set for release Thursday, April 1st.


To mark the release, I have several events scheduled that might be of interest to any of you in the Huntsville, Alabama area. Why Huntsville? My hometown and the setting for the new series.

The events will be held at the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library on Saturday, April 3rd.

Location:    915 Monroe St.
Huntsville, AL

There will be a Launch Party/Library Fund Raiser from 6:30-9:00 p.m. The talk I will give is titled “Plotting the Perfect Murder: Learning to Think Like a Crime Writer” and there will be a reception, catered party, and book signing. The cost is $25 per person.

Earlier the same day I will give three Crime Writers Workshops. They run from 2-5 p.m. and are free. The classes will be:

The Psychology of Character Motivation

The Autopsy of a Thriller: Deconstructing “The Terminator”

Forensics Q&A: Bring your medical and forensic story questions

I hope to see many of you there. It’ll be a fun day.

An added event will be a Forensic Discussion and signing of my previous book FORENSICS FOR DUMMIES. This will take place at the Bridge Street Barnes & Noble on Thursday, April 1 from 4-6 p.m.

300 Bridge Street Town Center, Suite 100

    This sounds wonderful! I wish I could be there! Unfortunately, I live far away, but I do have a writing friend in Huntsville and I’ve passed the info to her. Best of luck to you!

      Wish you could join us. Tell your friend I’d love to see her at the workshops and at the launch party. They will both be fun.

    Sounds fun but Alabama’s a bit far for me to travel, even for free food! However, big congrats!

    Congratulations! Do you ever do any of these in the San Francisco area? I’d be there in a flash.

      Kate–I’ll be teaching at the annual Book Passage Mystery Conference again this year. It is held at Book Passage in Corte Madera in July and is always an excellent conference. It is put on by the BP folks, Sheldon Siegel, and Jackie Winspear. You should come to that if you get a chance. Also I’ll be at B-Con in San Fran this October. Details are on my website under the Events tab. Hope to see you at one or both if these.

    Any chance of you heading over to the Dallas-Fort Worth Area? The workshops sound great.
    Good luck in Huntsville. It should be lovely there this time of year.

    Best of luck with the book launch and workshops. Too far away for me, but I send good wishes. Enjoyed the James Brothers stories.
