Sconed to Death - Release week

Okay, hold onto your hats. Sconed to Death releases on Tuesday which means there's a lot going on in Lynn's world. I hope you come and join me either in person or virtually. First off, if you live in the St. Louis area, my goal is to have visited all the B&N's to sign their stock by this coming Friday. Tuesday - I'll be chatting with the Between the Chapter's book club on Facebook. I'll also be hosting a Facebook release party from 6-8pm (Central) on Tuesday - And, later that night, I'll be on the Boise Book Fest Facebook page doing a video chat 8pm Mountain time. Not sure how long I'll be

A start of summer

The weather is turning warm and the thunder storms have started. I drove home yesterday in the rain from Chicago. The heavy, heavy traffic made the rain manageable since I didn't get up to the speed limit until the rain had slowed and I was closer to home. This year I'm going to make me a summer reading list. Just like the ones I had between school years. My plan is to read out of my own library. If I love the book, I can keep it. If not? It goes in the box to go to Goodwill. Two birds with one stone. Reading and decluttering. What about you - what's on your summer reading plan? Maybe consider adding the next Cat Latimer to your wish list... Pre-order now -

Bits and Pieces

I'm getting ready for a busy weekend. Well, actually, my life is double booked all the way through mid June. I'm getting ready for a big push for the upcoming release of SCONED TO DEATH. Saturday I'll be chatting with the murder mystery crew up in Chicago - Sulzer Public Library, 4455 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago. It's open to the public and books will be available for purchase and signing afterward. You can find out more here... Stops in Marshalltown Iowa (as well as stopping at local B&N's along the way to sign stock); Richmond, Virginia (Fountain Books and Libbie Mill's Library); and my old hometown - Boise, Idaho for the Boise Book Fest on the Grove.

A Goal Book

Driving up to Milwaukee last month, I stopped at Cracker Barrel for food and to get out of the car for a bit. (The picture is not of my local CB, but maybe an imagined one? LOL) The best thing about Cracker Barrel? Their gift shop. I wandered through, looking for something I had to have. (Besides the chocolate I found early in my search.) Well, I found it. A leather covered journal with birds and a dresden type design on the front. All blue and antique white, except for the sweet bird. Now, I'm a journal freak. I have a lot of them. So I figured this one would stay on my desk until I gave it away. But no, I found a use for it. A goal book. Written down goals are like 100x more likely to bec

BV Reader Appreciation weekend

Last weekend I drove up to Milwaukee and back. In between, I met a ton of new and returning (rather than old - lol) readers. We had a lovely Q/A time where the readers got to know us. Then lunch the next day - four hours with seven readers at each table. Time to laugh and play and talk about everything including books. After that we had an amazing book signing (thank you!!). Then I crashed. The next morning, I was up and ready for our breakfast and one last time to meet and greet. By ten thirty, I was in the car, listening to Kingdom of the Blind and thinking about the weekend. Thanks Milwaukee!
