Paul Schmit, Bill Mueller and I -- collectively known as the Muddy River Writers -- will be signing our latest books and chatting with friends Saturday, April 16, noon to 3 pm at the Chesterfield MO Barnes & Noble. Although the store's at 1600 Clarkson Road, I don't know where we'll be. Hopefully in the front, facing the door, so people have to trip over us as they come into and leave the store. As they fall, Bill, Paul or I will shove a book into their hands and the other unengaged person of our group will push them toward the checkout register.
Paul's first mystery, Atonement, will be for sale. It's a humorous story about a small town chief of police in West Clover Bottom, Minnesota. Bill has an anthology of short stories, Peaches and Cream, which got a very nice review in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper. My two newest, Swan Song and A Well Dressed Corpse -- both new additions to the McLaren and Taylor & Graham mystery series -- will be for sale.
I'll have some giveaways and some cookies for folks...if I can get my act together by then. I should be able. Nothing is hanging over my head as far as deadlines. I'm writing my play at my leisure and my standalone at my leisure. Unless my groundhog or raccoons hold me for ransom, demanding more and better food, I should be okay.
Anyway, hope to see you at the signing. Just look for a table with three intelligent writers at it. I'll be the one in the dress.
