We've talked about the fiction titles coming out in May, but haven't discussed book plans for April. Sunday Salon is the perfect time to do that. Do you have any special books, conferences, or authors you're going to see in April? If you're an author, are you touring this month?
I have an exciting month ahead. Laura Lippman is appearing at my library, the Velma Teague Branch Library in Glendale, AZ, on Monday at 2 p.m. She's touring to promote her latest bestseller,
Life Sentences. I need to finish the book today, so I can review it.
Donis Casey is very popular with the book discussion group at my library. She'll be
returning to the library on Wednesday, April 22 to discuss her latest Alafair Tucker mystery, The Sky Took Him.
I have a little work ahead of me. I'm excited about that project. I'm going to interview three of the nominees for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel by an American Author. So, watch for interviews with Tom Epperson, author of The Kind One, David Fuller, author of Sweetsmoke, and Justin Peacock, who wrote A Cure for Night. Coming shortly to this blog!
I have a review to finish for Mystery News, and a pile of books to read for them. I have to finish Liars Anonymous by Louise Ure. Today, I ran out and bought Jeffrey Cohen's latest Double Feature mystery, A Night at the Operation. And then..., and.... April is going to be busy, and fun.
What are your book plans this month?
