Island of the Mad launches!

Today is MAD!

Island of the Mad launches today, so shove your way through the doors of your local Indie, or get on the horn to The Great Brazilian River or your favorite online retailer, and snag a copy (I’ve put the links below.)

We had a fabulous pre-launch launch in Scottsdale, with Charleston lessons…

and dancing in the aisles…

…followed by a cocktail party for a smaller group…

Then the next day we had a brunch of friends who are also Friends of Russell!

All of which was tremendous fun.  But that’s not all–because tonight is our Official Launch in Santa Cruz, with Venetian masks and Twenties beads, tid-bit nibbling and cocktail sipping—that’s right, today we’re off to Island of the Mad in earnest.

There’ll even be a singalong of Cole Porter’s “Anything Goes”—or rather, an abused version of it, perpetrated by yours truly.

You can also check out the pictures on Instagram and Pinterest, Facebook posts, my blog—and now enjoy the book trailer on my LRK YouTube channel!

I hope you enjoy Island of the Mad…open it TODAY!

    Congratulations! Can’t wait to read it. I regularly re-read all the others in the series. 🙂

    Hooray and congratulations! Why amazon is so slow these days, I don’t know but am looking forward to my book’s delivery. Meanwhile any hints; where is Mrs, Hudson? Anything?

      I’d guess she’s happily making her new home in Monte Carlo!
      Hope you enjoy Island.
