…yesterday Barbara and I baked Egyptian Christmas cookies for my signing at the Poisoned Pen on Saturday. With limited success. These are the best of the ankh, the Eye of Horus, and the scarab. (I told Barbara some of the ankhs looked like Casper the Friendly Ghost. Upon reflection, I think I meant dementors.)
I was at the store yesterday and Julie (remember Julie, who found the dragon on the spine of Silk and Song?) said, “Oh, and look at these!” It seems the printer forgot a couple of layers of print and gilt on some of the copies of Death of an Eye. At least the Washington Post still thinks I’m “Outstanding!” And the Danamaniacs, living up to their name, have decided they all want the deformed ones.
I have goodies to give away at the event, too. In order below, that’s an Eye of Horus key fob
three Evil Eyes
a pair of uraeus earrings
Apollodorus’ wrist guards (which in the book are what we in the biz call A Clue)
and a Death of an Eye mug. #wellofcourse #haveyoumetme
Lastly, I’m the Hot Book of the Week at the Poisoned Pen! Woohoo!
