THE ART OF DETECTION goes on sale today in England. This dawned on me yesterday, when one of my husbandâ€™s nurses mentioned the date and I realized that Iâ€™d intended to be driving across Europe today in the car Iâ€™d ordered, bound for England and a series of events there.
Poisoned Pen Press are great people who do great books. Theyâ€™re small, down-to-earth, professional, easy to work with. And theyâ€™re just getting started in the UK. I feel terrible about having to cancel the tour for them, I had so looked forward to the events they set up for me, but my life is not my own at the moment, so the book will appear without its author.
Can I ask a favorâ€”or rather, a favour? If you live in the UK, would you buy a copy? I ask you not for me, but to support a great new publishing venture. Youâ€™ll probably have to order itâ€”the ISBN number is 1-84722-000-2â€”but by way of thanks, if you send me your address, weâ€™ll send you a signed bookplate. You can find my mailing address at the bottom of the web siteâ€™s home page.
