News from the Front
In this month of grand gestures of love: Valentines and candy hearts (and, YES, that includes the rudely awakened Groundhog who was nevertheless kind enough to predict an early spring!), The Secret of Lies continues to chug along steadily into new and exciting territory, and I thank you for staying along for the ride.
The Secret of Lies now has a fan page on Facebook, and I warmly invite you to stop over when you have a moment (notice I didn't say "free moment" since I know that none of us ever possesses any such thing).
I certainly welcome your comments, suggestions, and valuable observations. Hopefully you'll even like this new page well enough to click the "Like" button while you're there. You can find it by searching for: The Secret of Lies, Novel. (I attempted to include a direct link here, but it was too long to fit on one line, thus not a click-able link.)
I'm particularly excited to announce my upcoming interview with Don McCauley on The Author Show which will be broadcast on February 14th. You can hear it on-line by clicking: http://www.theauthorshow.com My interview will be replayed throughout the day. Please consider it my Valentine gift to you, although I do understand that flowers and chocolate hearts would've been slightly more appreciated.
February 15th then finds The Secret of Lies making an appearance in the latest edition of "First Chapter Plus", a fabulous e-catalog that can be perused at http://www.firstchapterplus.com where book browsers can click on and read the first chapters of new and noteworthy books in several categories and genres. (This catalog is especially popular with librarians scouring new titles to add to their collections.)
On the chance that you are passing through Los Angeles on April 30 or May 1, and like me consider it sheer joy to be surrounded by an abundance of bright and shiny new books -- some accompanied by their authors, I'd like to encourage you to stop in at the 16th Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Although, sadly, I am unable to make the road trip myself, The Secret of Lies will be attending the festival solo, and can be found in the midst of ink and paper treasures at the Authors Den Bookshelf. (http://authorsden.com for additional festival information.)
Your continued support continues to be a most wonderful blessing!
