Jason and James made fine music
Fatal Score launched on November 18th. It was wonderful experience that brought together people from so many strands of my life … old friends, new friends, writers, musicians … a marvelous mixture. I took in 41 books and emerged with none … also marvelous. Here are some pictures.

Sisters’ Sludge allowed me to host the event. The book itself is up on Amazon in trade paperback and e-book format. The paperback is also printed through IngramSpark, which supplies booksellers and libraries.
Now to the job of editing the audio files I recorded almost two years ago at son Edward’s studio in Santa Monica, California (and some rewrites more recently at Brytespot Studios in Minneapolis). That will take a while … I hope to have the audiobook out in February.
In any case, thanks to all who came, saw, and brought your good juju. It made the event hum.
Here we are. Eleven days to go before formal launch of Fatal Score. The last week or so has been hectic, as you can infer from the lack of a post for a couple of weeks.
The professional reviews are in … some very nice ones. Several days ago, I excerpted them to the few lines that go on the back cover of the print book and in the e-book’s introduction. Was ready to upload to the cover designer in Nigeria (ain’t the internet wonderful?) and noticed that in my haste, I’d left out a single space in one of the reviews.
The conclusory line in the Kirkus review is: “A rousing launch to a thriller series that has potential regardless of which character takes the spotlight.”
Great. Add it to the others. Hurry.
I typed: “Arousing launch to a thriller series that has potential regardless of which character takes the spotlight.”
Hmmm. Fifty shades of techno-thriller? Maybe I should have left the mistake.
