The cross-country book tour to promote Providence Rag, the third novel in my Edgar Award-winning Mulligan crime series, started on March 11 with a book release party at Manhattan’s famous Mysterious Bookshop.
From there, I’ll be crisscrossing the country from San Francisco to Del Ray Beach, FLA, on a journey that finally ends three weeks later with several appearances in my native New England.
If you’re going to be near any of the stops on my tour, I hope you’ll drop by to chat and get a novel signed.
