Once Upon A Crime in Minnesota

I can't say enough about Pat and Gary, or about their bookstore -- Once Upon A Crime. Michael A. Black and I drove up there for a Saturday booksigning and we had a wonderful, wonderful visit. We'd met Gary before, but this was the first time we'd met Pat. They both made us feel so welcome and they encouraged visitors to the store to come over and meet us. Almost everyone walked away with a book. And most folks picked up one from each of us.


In addition, we got to see our great friend, Carl Brookins. He stopped by to say hello and to pose for a photo with Mike.
Carl is great. He's such an interesting fellow - I enjoy reading his reviews and I am a great fan of his "author salon" -- which was introduced at Magna Cum Murder last year and reprised at Love Is Murder (and at LCC as well?). His The Case of the Greedy Lawyers which debuted in hardcover, was just released in paperback by Nodin Press.



We also had the opportunity to meet Julie Kramer, whose
Stalking Susan will be coming out July 15th. She'll have her book launch at Once Upon a Crime that day, so if you're in the area, be sure to stop by and pick up a copy. In the picture at the right, Julie Kramer holds a copy of People magazine. This issue -- with the late Tim Russert on the cover -- names Stalking Susan as a summer hot read (page 43). Check it out!

Pat and Gary have created a haven for booklovers in Minneapolis and I'm honored and delighted that they invited us to come up there for a signing. We had a great time and enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped by.

Thanks, Pat and Gary!!

Hello Again, Julie! I just finished STATE OF THE ONION. What a fascinating glimpse at political intrigue in the White House kitchen. Ollie Paras may appear to be a mild-mannered chef, but when national security is at stake, all it takes is a frying pan for her to out manuveur the Secret Service.

As for my PEOPLE page, tell your buddy Mike Black I've already laminiated it, per his advice.

I enjoyed meeting you both.
