June Recap: Top Ten List, Signings, and Horses!

My June recap starts with a special thank you to Ann Holt of Book Keeping for naming FOAL PLAY to her Top Ten Summer Reads list.  Thank you, Ann, for the endorsement and honor!

On June 19 and 20, I was thrilled to return to North Carolina’s Outer Banks for signings at the Duck and Corolla locations of Island Bookstore.  It was fun meeting vacationers who share my love of the Outer Banks.  I even got to meet one of Corolla’s wild horses compliments of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund.  Special thanks to bookstore owners Bill and Ursula Rickman and their staff for hosting the signings in their lovely stores.  If you’re planning a trip to the Outer Banks, stop by Island Bookstore and the Corolla Wild Horse Fund and say hello.

On June 25, the Fairfax Regional Library invited me to speak about FOAL PLAY, the writing process, and my other works.  Friends, new and familiar, came by to say hi.  It was great to have fellow mystery writers Barb Goffman and Sherry Novinger Harris in attendance and wonderful to hear their insights on writing.  Thanks to Susan at the library and Terry of One More Page Books for organizing such a nice event.

I ended the month with another trip to the beach… this time to Chincoteague, Virginia – home of Misty!  Jon and Jane Richstein at Sundial Books were warm and friendly and did a wonderful job publicizing the June 29 signing at their incredible bookstore.  I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped by to chat or have a book signed.  Looking forward to meeting more new people and doing more signings in July!  Happy July 4th!
