The latest from my hilltop in Vermont
Only a week ago I was on my way to Rutland, Vermont, for a wonderful signing and talk for Impostor’s Lure at Phoenix Books, a fabulous independent bookstore. I love this store! Rutland is a small city about an hour west of me, with a great downtown. I don’t get there often enough.
The night before, I was in North Reading, Massachusetts, at a historic library for a fun chat another “full house” of readers. As in Billerica on the 21st, everyone in North Reading and Rutland was so welcoming, gracious and generous. And they all asked great questions!
The heat and humidity returned this week, so I’ve been hunkered down by a fan, writing. No AC but it’s in the budget. I like to print out pages at this stage of a manuscript, and the paper curls. I haven’t had printer jams at least. Fortunately we got relief today. I ran errands in Woodstock this afternoon, and it was absolutely gorgeous. Filling up already for the long weekend. With Bouchercon next week in St. Petersburg, Florida, I’m working through the weekend, but no complaints. This will be my first Bouchercon and I plan to soak up as much as I can. I’ll report back.
And if you’re in the area, I’ll be at the Nevins Memorial Library in Methuen, MA, at 1 PM on Saturday, September 29. Details here.
