It was a great event yesterday, when the Poisoned Pen Bookstore launched the 22nd Kate Shugak novel, No Fixed Line. You can watch the video below.
These kinds of things are defined by the people who come and their enthusiasm and the questions they ask. Barbara estimates that about 100 of you ‘maniacs came and that we’re on our way to selling about 300 books.
Thank you all so much! You made me feel like a queen. My niece Dawn even brought me a crown.

Allow me to introduce you to Nala. She is one of two dogs belonging to my hosts, Rob and Barbara. Doesn’t she look adorable? Doesn’t she look sweet? Doesn’t she look innocent?
Don’t let that look fool you. I was sitting there, peacefully drinking my coffee and rejoicing in yesterday’s triumph, when Nala came in from taking her morning dump. Whereupon she jumped up on my bed and wiped her poopy butt all over it.
My reign has officially ended.
The PP is ordering more hardcovers. Click here to order yours if you’re late to the party and I’ll sign it before I head home.
