Easily My Best Murder Ever!
Outstanding event Saturday at Portland’s own Murder By The Book!
We drew a terrific house. It was standing room only, with people spilling out into the streets. Maybe they were spilling out onto the streets; maybe they were trying to escape before I gave a speech. It’s hard to tell.
Considering that it was the most beautiful day of the year so far in this city, garnering such a crowd is saying something!
Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and First Lady Nancy Hales dropped by – immensely grateful, both of you! – as did a wide array of family, friends, fans and cohorts.
The staff at Murder By The Book are just a trip to the moon on gossamer wings. They’ve been supportive when I was successful, and supportive when I wasn’t successful. They are gems. Thank you!
All in all, it was a great kickoff for the new novel!
