Lane of ARC


I am incredibly fortunate to be surrounded by creative, ambitous, interesting people, and even more fortunate that some of them are related to me–so they are stuck, and have to claim me whether they want to, or not.  (Do any of you ever have flashbacks to 8th Grade English when you are writing?  I am terrible with commas, and whenever I am writing I flashback to diagramming sentences on the blackboard, and start worrying about parts of speech, diagram tails, and progress reports.  Clearly, I do not worry too much about rabbit trails.)

One creative, ambitious, interesting relative, who knows her way around a comma is my Cousin-in-Law, LynDee Walker.  LynDee is the creator of the Nichelle Clarke mystery series, and her second book, Buried Leads is available now for pre-order.

Last night, LynDee was at the Frisco Public Library for a reading and signing event, so we loaded up the SUV and trekked on over.

Here we are with LynDee's poster.  And you thought the cover art was cute on its own?  I want my LIFE to look like this poster.

LynDee did a reading from Buried Leads, and I can already tell you that you’re going to want this book.  How can you not love a mystery that starts with Armani shoes and–spoilers–never mind.  Just get the book.

LynDee explains the importance of research when writing crime scenes.

I was excited to win an ARC of the new book, and as soon as I have that in my hot little hands, I’ll tell you all about it!  And by “all about it”, I mean, “absolutely nothing about it.”  I’ll just tell you where to get it.

Read up on LynDee and find out when she’s going to be near you.  If you happen to be in Virginia, she will be launching Buried Leads at the Library of Virginia’s Virginia Literary Festival on October 16.  The website says wine and cheese follow.  I can’t think of anything much better than books and cheese, so please check it out and tell me how awesome it was.
