There was a lot of laughter during the discussion of War Hawk by James Rollins and Grant Blackwood. With Livestream, you get the chance to feel as if you were there. Here’s the link so you can join the audience. – http://livestream.com/poisonedpen/events/5127411
And, there’s a lot of conversation about dogs because Kane is a working dog.
If you would like to order a signed copy of War Hawk, with a collectible dog tag while they’re still available, you can do that through The Poisoned Pen. http://bit.ly/1SXFDMc
James Rollins and Grant Blackwood were just at The Pen to discuss and sign the second Tucker Wayne novel, War Hawk.
Actually, the books feature Former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his war dog, Kane, so, with the purchase of a book, we’re including the special collectible dog tag created for the book.
And, we have a note from James Rollins to share here.
I love the lists from crime novel nominations. I may not have read them, but it gives me a chance to see what I might have missed. Today’s list comes from The Guardian. It’s the longlist of crime novels up for this year’s Theakston’s Old Peculiar crime novel of the year. I’m sure you’ll recognize names such as Ann Cleeves, Val McDermid, Stuart MacBride. Then, there’s that one named Robert Galbraith, the focus of the article. The winner won’t be announced until July 21, so you have time to pick up books from the list. Check it out!
Steve Berry. Stuart Woods. Jacqueline Winspear. Laurie R. King. They’ve all been at The Poisoned Pen in the last month. They’re also here – http://nyti.ms/23R1kVN
We hope you continue to enjoy the chance to meet and hear the authors. In the next month, you’ll have the opportunity to meet James Rollins, John Sandford, Robyn Carr, Diana Gabaldon, Nevada Barr, Craig Johnson, and so many other authors. And, if you can’t get to The Pen, we’re always happy to send autographed books to you. You can find suggestions, and search for your favorite authors at the store. http://store.poisonedpen.com
As Barbara Peters says, one purchase a month keeps the authors coming, and the bookstore here. Since I’m no longer in Arizona, I know what a wonderful opportunity it is to meet bestselling and upcoming authors. Sometimes, The Poisoned Pen offers the opportunity to discover a new author, one who may become a favorite. Whether you come to the store to hear the authors, or buy the books and watch the Livestream events, we’re happy you’re making your favorite authors into Best Sellers.
Thanks to Nora Rawlinson of EarlyWord (www.earlyword.com), for the following note about Jacqueline Winspear’s Journey to Munich.
“Jacqueline Winspear can celebrate as well. Her newest, Journey to Munich (Harper/ HarperLuxe; HarperAudio), hits its highest spot on the USA TODAY list, landing at #6…
This is the 12th book in the Maisie Dobbs mystery series and USA TODAY has tracked its rise, reporting the “series has steadily been building a fan base. An Incomplete Revenge, the first to make USA TODAY’s list, peaked at No. 134 in 2008; last year’s A Dangerous Place landed at No. 13.”
We have signed copies of the hardcover, as well as the large print and audio versions of Journey to Munich, if you’re interested. http://bit.ly/1SzvrZO
We thought you might find this YouTube video as fascinating as we do. The Getty Museum shows us how manuscripts were made in the Middle Ages.
When Laurie R. King appeared at The Poisoned Pen to discuss her new book, The Murder of Mary Russell, we had a fashion show that featured dresses from the Victorian era and the ’20s, the time periods covered in King’s books. We thought it would be fun to share a few of those fashions.
Even some of the audience members came in costume for the program and book signing.
If we’ve enticed you by the fashions related to the period, you can still pick up a signed copy of Laurie R. King’s The Murder of Mary Russell.
