Planning the Next Book Launch

MV5BMTY2MDUwNzg4MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwNDc3OTE5._V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_SILENT MURDERS won’t be released until September 23, but it isn’t too soon to plan its book launch. The Library of Virginia has offered to host an evening event to introduce the book, and we decided on Wednesday, October 15 because then it can be part of the annual Literary Festival. Since SILENT MURDERS takes the setting from vaudeville to silent movies, I’m planning to screen the 111-minute film that plays a role in the story, Don Q: Son of Zorro. This marvelous silent features Douglas Fairbanks, the man who invented the action hero. We’ll have champagne and hors d’oeuvres and I’ll work up a brief talk or maybe read a short selection. So, it’s a bit early to put this on your calendars, but it’s on mine!
