A quick post... BFP news...

I'm sorry to dash off this post so quickly, but much has been going on, and I promise to write in more detail next week...

Finally, A. E. Maxwell's second Fiddler & Fiora thriller -- The Frog and the Scorpion (978-1-935715-00-8; paperback; $14) -- should arrive in stores in about 2 weeks. A Jewish Iranian friend of Fiddler’s is being blackmailed by terrorists and needs Fiddler’s help. "One of the most interesting and engaging private eyes since Robert Parker’s Spenser."—Advertising Age

We're working on the tour schedule for Tower (by Ken Bruen & Reed Farrel Coleman; 978-1-935415-07-7; September; paperback original; $15). Due to scheduling conflicts, Ken Bruen may not be able to take part in events outside of NYC and Bouchercon (two of his books are currently filming, with the likes of Colin Farrell & Jason Statham... and Ken's even supposed to have lines in Blitz!), but we'll keep you posted. In the meantime, Reed will be in New York, Minneapolis, Denver/Boulder, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Austin, Houston... and of course, Bouchercon in Indianapolis! More to come...

Busted Flush just signed up Scottish crime writer Donna Moore (Go to Helena Handbasket) for the American publication of her second novel, Old Dogs. This is an incredibly funny caper thriller... reads like a Guy Ritchie adaptation of The Thomas Crown Affair. I'll post more on this soon, including, at some point, interviews with Donna & her agent, fellow crime writer Allan Guthrie. Old Dogs will be published in summer 2010.

Have a great weekend!

I don't see Boston on that list. I'm certain that's an oversight. An Irish guy is coming to visit and NOT going to Boston?!?

Hey David--

I just discovered your blog. I'm tidying up my first crime novel manuscript and it is good to see that guys like you are out there promoting the genre so marvelously. Living over in Brenham, it is also nice to see that someone close to home is doing it up right. Anyway--

And I am totally, utterly, haven't-stopped-beaming-yet thrilled. Thanks David - very very much.
