Eight is Great, Too (or Should I Say, Two)

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

ASSAULTED PRETZEL slipped just one spot on the National Barnes & Noble Mass Market Mystery Bestseller List to claim the #8 spot for the final two weeks of March. It’s continued hold in the top ten is very exciting. Thank you, readers, for making it so!

I’m back home now after spending a week touring North Carolina and Nashville, TN. My final event was at Mysteries & More Bookstore in Nashville and it was great fun! Mary and Greg Bruss, the shop’s owners, rolled out the proverbial red carpet for my arrival and their customers were oh so very welcoming.

My visit to the store coincided with the shop’s 5th birthday, so they celebrated that milestone and my appearance with a cake! Neat, huh?

There were just five signed copies of the book remaining when I left that day, so if you’d like a signed copy of the book, contact Greg via the store’s website:

And finally, I’ve been getting some truly wonderful letters from all of you regarding ASSAULTED PRETZEL. Thank you!

Rinse and Repeat # 7

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

For the second week in a row, ASSAULTED PRETZEL has held the lucky # 7 spot on the national Barnes & Noble Mass Market Mystery Bestseller List. And, once again, I have my readers to thank for that distinction.

Next week, I’m making a bunch of tour stops in North Carolina before finishing up in Nashville, TN. For more details check out my upcoming events to the right!

Thanks again for another great week and for all those wonderful emails you’ve sent and notes you’ve left on my Facebook page letting me know how much you’ve enjoyed ASSAULTED PRETZEL!! It means a lot!
