Pictures From Last Night’s Reading at WORD

Last night’s launch at WORD was amazing! L.A. Kornetsky (a.k.a. Laura Anne Gilman) and Laird Barron joined me to read in front of a packed house. Lots of copies of Die and Stay Dead were sold and signed for readers, as were several copies of Dying Is My Business. (It’s always nice to see a previous title get some sales love.)

Here I am reading from Die and Stay Dead. The audience laughed at all the funny parts. You can’t ask for more than that.

This is Laura Anne Gilman, Laird Barron, and myself during the audience Q&A. Three of the nicest, friendliest people you’ll ever meet, and yet we look distinctly unfriendly here for some reason. Well, Laird and I do. Laura Anne, at least, is smiling.

After our readings and the Q&A, we signed copies of our books until it was time for the store to close. Lots more pictures were taken, too. You can see them all here. Many thanks again to Laura Anne Gilman, Laird Barron, and the fine folks at WORD, especially Jenn Northington and Jaye Bartell. Big, big thanks also to everyone who schlepped out to Greenpoint, Brooklyn to see us! As writers, that kind of support means the world to us. We couldn’t do it without you!

And now, some reminders!

My next reading will be on Sunday, October 26th at 6 PM, in conjunction with the Writers Read NYC series. This one will be in lower Manhattan, at the The Sidewalk Café on Avenue A and 6th Street. Copies of Die and Stay Dead will be on hand for sale and signing. There will be a full bar and food available, too, but unfortunately I believe there is a $5 cover charge. Click here to see my full reading and signing schedule for the fall.

There’s an excerpt of Die and Stay Dead that you can read online at The Qwillery. Consider it a sneak peek for those of you who haven’t bought the novel yet.

Lastly, there are only three days left in the Die and Stay Dead Goodreads giveaway. St. Martin’s Press is giving away five (5) copies to the lucky winners. Enter to win today!
