I have a new short story up at the crime ‘zine, Plots With Guns. This story was inspired by the sound of a woman’s voice. It’s an Appalachian story. Real Cackalacky.
Spent the last two days chasing around DC. Denise did some meetings yesterday, a signing at the Smithsonian’s American History Museum today, and a TV interview with The PBS Newshour this afternoon. That clip will probably run next week. Awesome to hear people come up to her saying they had heard of the book on NPR, or were already reading it. Tomorrow she’ll be signing at the International Spy Museum starting at 2 pm in DC, if you’re around.
The New York Times has posted the Bestseller List containing Denise’s book online at this link. The post says it’ll be printed in the March 24 issue of the book review, but they probably will only do the Top 15. So if you’re Denise’s mom, please hold off buying that issue.
Still kind of shocked by David B. Silva’s death. I located posts talking about him here, here, here, and here.
That’s about it. Really beat. Still trying to shake this head cold. Beginning to hate these trips. More tomorrow, maybe, on our last day in DC. Head to Oak Ridge, Tennessee, on Sunday.
