Thank You, Mysterious Bookshop, for a Great Book Launch Party

Me at the Mysterious Bookshop

Publication day is always an exciting time for an author, and last night’s book-release party for my new Mulligan crime novel, Cliff Walk, at The Mysterious Bookshop on Warren Street in Manhattan couldn’t have been sweeter.

A full house showed up to meet and mingle, listen to me blather about the true events that inspired the book, and snatch up the signed first editions.

I was especially honored that crime writing legend Lawrence Block dropped by; that the king of Kindle himself, Parnell Hall came; and that dancer and choreographer extraordinaire Paloma McGregor graced us with her presence.  Even Jonathan Lopez, who wrote a rave review of Cliff Walk for The AP, showed up to chat.

My thanks to everyone who came, including old pals from the Associated Press, friends from Columbia University and the book publishing business, and of course my beautiful wife Patricia and our suddenly-seventeen girl Mikaila. I’m grateful to the staff of the Mysterious Bookshop, one of the world’s greatest bookstores, for hosting the event. You can visit the store online here.
