A big thanks to my Sisters in Crime in St. Louis, and Pam DeVoe in particular for featuring me on their website this month. Catch the interview here.

Were you on the beta read team for Leaving Annalise? Well, you can now leave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. Include in your review that you received a copy for purposes of an advance review. I really, really would love it if you’d put your review in both spots :-) While you’re on Goodreads, slip over to the Indie Authors Everybody Should Read and vote forĀ Saving Grace, k?

Oh my gosh, our trip to Carlsbad was amazing. We stayed in the Trinity Hotel, which is built in an old bank building. We had two of THE most fabulous meals we’ve had in forever, one at the Trinity (highly recommend their chicken & Hatch green chile lasagna alfredo) and the other across the street at The Stock Exchange (hello!”Signature Chips” — crispy homemade fries drenched in nacho cheese sauce and Hatch green chiles smothered in melted cheddar). We even enjoyed dropping by Hastings to discover they had just sold out of Saving Grace, so we left free copies of all my books with the owner of the Trinity for their lending library. But by far the very, very, very best part of the trip was Saturday when we hiked into and toured Carlsbad Caverns (a site of great emotional significance to Eric from his college days at University of New Mexico), and ended the day with a quick hike in the Guadalupe Mountains to Smith Springs. Watch for a blog on our otherworldly experience in the Caverns. Hell, that one will probably become a book, and I can’t wait to write it. Oh! We also stopped in Seminole, TX to photograph an apartment Eric lived in 25 years ago, and in Roswell, NM at the Roswell UFO Museum (yes, the government did a no-no).

Another oh my gosh: I am a tester for Vasque’s new Pendulum trail running shoes. I’ll take them on their inaugural trail run this weekend in Nowheresville, but in the meantime I’ve been prancing around the house in them, and my feet are practically orgasmic!

Guess what? I have three pieces in the just-released anthology, OMG – That Woman! Please pick up your copy on Amazon and review :-) See picture of cover in the gallery above, as well as a picture of the front and back of My Dream of Freedom, which is available on Amazon!! (Also pictured, my ICE tag for Susanne’s epi-pen, and Marie and her two sentinels in the SkipJack world headquarters)

A belated stop on the blog tour:

Congratulations to the winner of the Kindle Fire HD, given away as part of the Saving Grace blog tour: Carla Bonesteel. Woot!

After this week, we have three straight weekends of book events, and we have a fair amount of media lined up for them. I am especially thrilled to be doing Daybreak Amarillo on KVII TV.

This weekend I am speaking at the Houston Writers Guild annual conference THREE times, then we escape to Nowheresville with many young adults in tow for some rednecking and tree planting. Good times.

Until next week,

    It was a GREAT and too fast, trip. Cant beleive all we saw in that time, (and the awesome meals) and most of all to go see the ghost/cavern with you.

  2. Sounds like a fantastic week! Congratulations on getting those pieces into the Oh, That Woman anthology — VERY cool. Those are good ones. :)

    Need pix of shoes . . .

    Love you guys!

  3. Beautiful post, beautiful people, AMAZING book (although I am a wee bit biased), beautiful vacation, some beautiful pix – that apartment is a bit austere!! Glad you got to vacation; wish you had more time to do that.

    • Oh and p.s., I will buy your anthology. Do I get to review “Leaving Annalise”???

      • Pamela says:

        Yes ma’am, please review LA. It’s already up on Amazon, in a weird way (you’ll see what I mean when you see it), and Goodreads, and accepting reviews. Be sure to note in your review that you received an advance copy or purpose of a review, purty please!

    • Pamela says:

      Ah, me too, me too. Eric and I are dreading the time apart this summer, we need more downtime together. OH! But I am coming to Little Rock…

  4. Eric Huthchins says:

    I also meant to mention what a cool project Helens book is. I hope people will check it out, and never forget….

  5. Sandy Webb says:

    I couldn’t figure out why you were eating so many Hatch chilis in Carlsbad….then when you mentioned the caverns I realized it was New Mexico and not California! Glad you had a good time. I am looking forward to seeing you in Phoenix!
