Library Event This Saturday in Burbank

I'm excited to be part of the Sassy Sleuths panel, an event sponsored by the Los Angeles Chapter of Sisters in Crime.

It takes place at the Burbank Library (Buena Vista Branch), on June 6, from 2 - 4 p.m. The library is at 300 N. Buena Vista in Burbank, and it promises to be very fun. Sassy, even! :-)

I'll be talking about Homicide in Hardcover and my sassy protagonist, Brooklyn Wainwright. Joining me on the panel will be authors Dorothy Howell and M.M. Gornell, with moderator Jackie Vick. If you're in the area, please come by to say hello!

Hi Kate,

Although my comment doesn't really fit this particular post, I wanted to give you at least a bazillion kudos for your spectacular first book. I purchased it at the Newberry Library in Chicago on Saturday, and read the entire book on the plane on my way back to Northern CA yesterday. I am a certifiable (in both senses of the word, I'm sure) bibliomaniac (although I prefer bibliobimbo)and I love book-related mysteries. I had no idea when I purchased your book that it was set in San Francisco - I live in the East Bay - and this made it even more enjoyable. I can't wait until your next installment, and wish you much success. I hope to convince my local bookstore (Clayton Books) to ask you to appear for a book signing.

P.S. If you don't already realize this, you dodged a serious bullet when you decided not to continue with law school. Regrettably, I did not have your foresight and have not managed to extricate myself from this nasty profession - my heart lies in the book world, but I haven't figured out a way to make that a reality yet. Sorry for the long post!

Kate, I LOVE your book Homicide in Hardcover!!!!! It was such a good read and all I can say is, "WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE COMING OUT????"

I follow several mystery series. Some I keep in my personal library, some I trade or sell to the local used book vendor. HiH will be staying in my personal library.

As someone who counts one of her dearest friends, a professional bookbinder, this spoke to me and I understood the intricacies of Brooklyn's world. Thank you!

Kind regards,
Jenn Owen

Wow, I've been on a deadline for so long, I haven't checked my blog in a while! Bad Kate! Bad!

Hi Jill, thanks so much for stopping by -- and thanks for the bazillion kudos! It's so great to meet a fellow bibliobimbo. I love that word! I might have to use it in a book. *g*

My brothers live in the Bay Area (two of them in the East Bay) and I'm going to have to check out Clayton Books when I'm there next month.

I truly hope you're able to one day extricate yourself from the world of law, but I should mention that even though I dodged that bullet, some of my dearest friends--and a few family members--are lawyers, too. They're some of my favorite people!

Hi Jenn, I'm so glad you enjoyed HIH!! And you're so sweet to come by and let me know. I feel truly honored, especially since you know something about the bookbinding world!

The second book will be out in February 2010--which seems so far away but I know it'll be here before I know it.

The title of book two is IF BOOKS COULD KILL! Don't you love it? *g*
