Yep, I'm on vacation until July 5. Wasted one whole week of my break being sick. Now I'm trying to keep up with everything here, squeeze in some reading and - shock! - some writing.

Fabulous image, Debbie!

 

I'll post a link to Beth's new release again, since we kind of hijacked her thread:

LOL, Becky, but I loved seeing the chat between you two. I'm packing my bags for my trip to Colorado Springs today - Saturday for 3 signings. Wish me luck!

 

In the meantime, I'd like to draw everyone's attention to Dollycas's great 5-star review of the book that she posted on the B&N website:

 

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/fatal-descent-beth-groundwater/1113557673

 

I could use a few more customer reviews, so if anyone reads and likes the book, I'd really appreciate you posting a review, even a short one, to the B&N website.

 

Also, I recently heard from the Colorado Springs Gazette book reviewer about FATAL DESCENT:

"I think "Descent" is the best yet. All your books have been good, of course, but this one is especially tight, well-crafted, credible, thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable."


That email made my day!
I hope everyone here has a great day, too.

Have a good trip, Beth! I hope you aren't going near those wildfires! I hope they're burned out by now - the pictures on the news were terrifying!

Thank goodness the Black Forest fire north of Colorado Springs is under control! Last I heard, they were mopping up hot spots, which will take some time, because the fire can remain smouldering under the forest floor "duff" for quite awhile. The West Fork Fire Complex (a group of fires that have mostly merged) in southwestern Colorado is still raging, though, with 91,000 acres burned so far, and it is only 2% contained. That fire is what produced most of the smoke I experienced while in Colorado Springs. There are even photos of the huge smoke plume stretching across the state that were taken from space. Most of the wildfire is in remote areas, with no homes, but it is threatening some small towns. Pray for rain!

 

On another topic, here's where I'll be tomorrow. I hope Denver-area B&N mystery club folks will stop by!

Re: Please Welcome Featured Author BETH GROUNDWATER!

I've been interviewed by the Denver Westword:

http://blogs.westword.com/showandtell/2013/07/westword_book_club_author_beth.php

The reporter asked some interesting questions that I haven't had to answer before.

Re: Please Welcome Featured Author BETH GROUNDWATER!

Thanks, Becky! I just received the galley proofs for my November release,

A Basket of Trouble  

 

 today, and I'll be going through them with a fine-toothed comb the next couple of weeks. The ARCs are already going out to reviewers via NetGalley, and one has already posted her 5-star review! I'm thrilled with it! Here's the link:
