OK, this could be a blast!
A galley of writers* will be there. Whatever your taste in the written word, you’ll find the author there for you. Check out the list. Among them will be best-selling mystery writer Phil Margolin.
(Years ago, a fellow journalist, John Grund, suggested that the cumulative term for a group of writers should be “a galley.” First, because galleys are the proofs that we used to use, back in the day. And second … well, slaves rowing a ship. John and I worked in community newspapers. ‘Nuff said.)
To kick off the paperback release of ICE COLD KILL, I’ll be at Annie Bloom’s, 7834 S.W. Capitol Highway in my old ’hood, Multnomah Village, from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 30.
The reason is to celebrate Small Business Saturday. This is a good day for Oregonians to support their locally owned retail shops. And what better choice in Portland than an independent bookstore? None whatsoever.
