Excerpts, contests, giveaways–and takeoffs
I’m off to New York today, so I, a Central Coast native and weather wimp, would appreciate any warm thoughts you can send that city’s way. And if you’re within striking distance of Manhattan, come out and see me on Saturday when I’ll be signing copies of In the Company of Sherlock Holmes, in, well, the company of some of the others: Les Klinger, Michael Dirda, Nancy Holder, and possibly Gahan Wilson. Details here.
And in case you missed the newsletter that I sent out yesterday (Sherlock Holmes’ birthday, many happy returns of the day) you can still see it here, but the key points are:
Excerpts, lots of them, all from Dreaming Spies, pages and pages of words that will just keep growing over the next ten days, here.
And contests, two of them plus a giveaway: A Russellscape for the visual artists among us, a Haiku contest for the wordsmiths, and for everyone (talented or not) my publisher is giving away a loaded iPad. All those details here.
