For Murder, that’s the ticket!

Murder will be on tour—or at any rate, its author will be—in just a few weeks. And because I’d hate for my faithful followers (that’s you) to get left out, I wanted to point out that some of the events are ticketed. A couple of these are venues that asked me and agreed to wait until the new book came out, and others are fundraisers for excellent causes. So if you’re in one of these places, take a look at their sites for the tickets:

Traverse City, MI, (April 6) the National Writer’s Series

St Louis, MO, (April 7) Meet Me St Louis

Houston, TX: April 11, Murder by the Book Author Luncheon 

(I’m also doing an evening event for MbtB, but don’t worry—I never say the same thing at night that I say during the luncheon!)

Indianapolis, IN: April 15, Christamore House Benefit Luncheon

I should also mention the extra-special launch party Anderson’s in Naperville is holding on April 5. After that ccomes Denver on the 8th (Tattered Cover), then the 9th in Scottsdale’s Poisoned Pen, followed by Austin’s  Book People on the 10th.

Closer to home, I’ll be at Books Inc Alameda on April 16, and on the 20th with my local bookstore, Bookshop Santa Cruz!

    Wish you would come to Warwick’s in San Diego!

    It would be lovely to see you in Boston one of these days!! I’ve been following Mary since the Beekeeper’s Apprentice first appeared… and still enjoying the adventures…

    Got my ticket for Anderson’s in Naperville!! Wouldn’t miss it!

      We’ll be at Anderson’s as well. Can’t wait.

    Why do people on tour insist on stopping only in Phoenix?! You have a good mystery bookstore (Clues Unltd.) in Tucson — and a more literate readership than in Scottsdale. I refuse to travel 2 hours to Scottsdale —

    Would you consider stopping by The Book Cellar in Chicago?

      Oh, sorry, I’m very much in and out this time–not even managing to swing past my old friends at Centuries & Sleuths.

        Dang it. I was really hoping to see and hear you reading this time out. There’s just no way I can make it out to Naperville, me being without a car after all.

        I’ll pester TBC to see if they can pester your publisher to get you on the schedule for authors sometime this season. And not only because TBC is like, a block away from my house and I can invite you to dine at home or at one of our many fine restaurants in the square, but just because having read nearly everything thus far, I’d love to just have the opportunity to hear you read in Ms Russell’s voice.
