I can't believe it's the EIGHTH Crispin Guest book! And we are having a helluva time.
Yesterday we started our tour in Huntington Beach at Mystery Ink. Do check it out for all your mystery and thriller needs.
Doing a bit of reading. And then raffling off Mouse and Mead.
We had a very good crowd.
And I was happily surprised by a fan's very special gift of "Crisbear Guest." It's quite simply AMAZING! So many thank yous, Rebekah! He's now my tour mascot. (Look at those details! Dagger! Pouch! Tiny painted buttons on his cotehardie!)
And then it was off to Vroman's in Pasadena. There I am, awaiting my "crew" to set up. (That's that lovely resting bitch face.)
The table laden with goodly fare.
My captive audience. (A fun photo op for my guests)
My son Graham mans the mead. How did I get such a handsome boychick?
I offered a powerpoint, did a reading, answered questions, raffled Mouse and Mead, sold and signed books.
We had an excellent turnout. Thanks to all who came out to support me! We also had fun at the dinner afterward.
Our view of the Pasadena City Hall from our hotel window.
The next day, it was on to Book Carnival in Orange.
Well, we certainly wouldn't have scheduled it this day if we'd known it was Super Bowl Sunday. Unfortunately, the turnout was small, but mighty.
I talked, I read, I raffled, I signed. Rinse and repeat.
Next weekend it's the Murder and Tea Book Club. More pictures to come!
