Friday night, January 24, I'll be at Mysterious Galaxy San Diego to sign the new anthology Dark Duets. Joining me at that event will be my co-author Amber Benson (our story, "Amuse-Bouche, is wonderfully twisted!) and the book's editor (and brilliant writer in his own right) Christopher Golden, along with horror/urban fantasy megastars Charlaine Harris, Jonathan Maberry, and Rachel Caine. If you can't make the signing*, you can order online or by phone and have a signed copy shipped to you. Another opportunity like this won't come around.
*Note: this is a ticketed event, and space will be limited. Please contact the store to get your ticket.
The following day, I'll be a speaker at the San Diego State University Writers Conference, along with an all-star assortment of authors that includes long-time pals like T. Jefferson Parker, Don Winslow, Gini Koch, Joseph Wambaugh, and many, many more. My panel is: "Building Suspense: One Page at a Time. Bestselling authors will talk about techniques for building suspense and how to create scenes that up the ante page-by-page. Questions and answers will follow."
