"You can feel the terror..."

Journey of a Bookseller has posted the first online review of my "The Ninth Life," and I'm so happy.

THE NINTH LIFE for Christmas?

Want your copy of "The Ninth Life" by Christmas? Today is the last day to order from The Book Depository (the book ships FREE from the UK – US publication isn't until March 1). Of course, my other books are available widely – and I'm available to sign/mail signed bookplates. Just email me for details!

Holiday shoppers, start your engines

OK, you've probably already started (hey, Chanukah begins on Sunday!). But I just found out about the Book Depository, which sells books from their original pub dates BEFORE THEY COME OUT IN THE U.S. Plus, they do so AT A DISCOUNT and SHIP FREE WORLDWIDE! Can you tell I'm excited? Because you know I'm psyched for the March 1. U.S. publication of my new, darker cat mystery, "The Ninth Life." But if you want it NOW (or want to give it as a gift, hint hint), you can get it in less than a week at 21% off here! Yup, the price just dropped again. Check it out! (Oh, and they have lots of other books too.)

Fair warning: Amazon recently bought the Book Depository, but ... well, there you have it.

Mystery Gala at New England Mobile Book Fair!

Mystery Gala at New England Mobile Book Fair

New England Mobile Book Fair, 82-84 Needham Street, Newton Highlands, MA
Thursday, December 3, 2015 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Okay folks, listen up. This is the FOURTH ANNUAL mystery night featuring New York Times best selling authors from in and around New England. Tom Lyons (pictured below in his native habitat) continued the mystery night tradition started by the iconic (but sadly closed) Kate's Mystery Books in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Kate Mattes, owner, will be honored with the Robert B. Parker Award! Over fifty authors will be there (that is in number, not of a certain age) from best selling authors, to local faves, to hot indies. (Go ahead, think what you want!) Many members from Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime will be there, too.

It's a terrific night and not one to miss.

Meet the authors! Get your books signed/personalized! Buy holiday gifts your friends and family will remember!

This year, the New England Mobile Book Fair will be honoring mystery fiction stalwart Kate Mattes – longtime proprietor of Kate's Mystery Books in Cambridge, with its Robert Parker Award. Come for the festivities – and buy some books too!
