Mary Russell’s MyStory
Today is the first Tuesday in Fifteen Weeks that Mary Russell hasn’t had a new blog post over at her MySpace page. Instead, we have this. And a year from now, more or less, we’ll be giving a copy of the hardback of The Green Man to someone who illustrates the miniature book made from Russell’s MyStory.
There: something to keep you busy for the coming year.
And for those of you eager for news about LRK in alternative formats to bound sheaves of wood pulp, The Moor has just appeared in the Kindle store, and The Language of Bees is scheduled to be available in audio from Recorded Books on May 25th, although you can order it now.
I should mention that there are still spots open for the California Crime Writers Conference, cosponsored by the Los Angeles chapter of Sisters in Crime and the Southern California chapter of Mystery Writers of America on June 13-14 in Pasadena. Robert Crais and I will be the keynote speakers at the two-day event. Agents, editors, publicists, cops and some great authors will be there to teach and answer questions, and conference features include a forensics track, query and synopsis seminars, and classes for established authors on contracts, e-publishing, online marketing, and film/television opportunities. Pre-registration until June 12 is $300; on-site registration will be $325.
