Martinelli v. Holmes

The March edition of the LRK quarterly newsletter will go out next week, and in case you’e2’80’99re not a subscriber, I should mention that one of the things it talks about is, we’e2’80’99re giving away ARCs. That’e2’80’99s right, throughout March and April, I’e2’80’99ll be giving away one copy of the bound galleys of THE ART OF DETECTION every Monday, just to get your week off to the right start. This will be a random drawing taken from the names on the web site’e2’80’99s mailing list, so if you’e2’80’99re not on it, sign up now, and you’e2’80’99ll have eight chances of seeing what Kate Martinelli does with Sherlock Holmes before anyone else does.

There’e2’80’99ll also be some really fun (?) or maybe terrifying news on the newsletter, about an event I’m doing in May.

And for my English readers, if you have any specific suggestions of stores, libraries, and the like that might enjoy a visit from yours truly, please send those to me and I’e2’80’99ll forward them to Poisoned Pen Press U.K

    I’m normally terrible about getting around to signing up for things like newsletters. I think, “Oh, that’d be nice,” and then never think about it again.

    Talk about the fastest link-clicking and sign-me-up’ing I’ve ever done… 🙂

    Laurie, I tried to sign up for the newsletter as per your instructions and got a page with this message: “The requested URL was not found on this server. Please visit the Blogger homepage or the Blogger Knowledge Base for further assistance.” Iris Lady

    The link was messed up ms laurie, all I got was a error message.

    More good news! And I will keep my fingers crossed, as August is such as long, long away ( well no, I know it’s not, but I’m putting off turning 40 the week that TAOD comes out in the UK!)

    Laurie, if Scotland makes it onto the agenda, we have a fantastic branch of Ottakar’s, if they are still trading – they are under threat of closure at the moment, but May is the deadline. Failing that, come back to Waterstones – three good stores to choose from in the city centre.

    Lots of things to keep fingers crossed for, then!

    While not in the UK itself, I would love to be able to get your books at the British Book Shop here in Vienna, Austria. Otherwise I pick them up when I am back on the States on vacation.

    As a postscript to my previous comment, would you and your new publisher consider launching the UK edition at the Edinburgh Book Festival, which runs in August? The dates coincide, and they have numerous ‘crime’ events, both individual and groups of 2 to 3 writers talking together. The crime events are always a sell-out, and it would be a fantastic way of reaching a new audience. It’s roughly a 50/50 split of locals and visitors who attend (well, it says this on the EIBF website!)

    Fingers crossed for luck being with me – I’m having surgery in March which will then mean I have to take it easy for three months – plenty of time to read a new Martinelli!

    Cheltenham Literary Festival is usually in the Autumn.

    Borders Bookshop
    (who do stock nearly all your books in US & UK covers)
    Queens Road, Clifton, Bristol BS6 would be worth contacting about a reading. I’d be there if you were!

    Link appears to be down.

    I’m not sure if I’m on the list or not. Is there another way to sign up???
