Summer’s winding down. This weekend I felt a hint of that refreshing, cool Fall air. Time for back to school, back to work, back to the active book event scene.
Women mystery authors and fans, don’t miss this special opportunity:
Date: Wednesday, September 9th
Location: The Mysterious Bookshop, 58 Warren St, New York City
Sarah Weinman, editor of Women Crime Writers: Four Suspense Novels of the 1940’s and Women Crime Writers: Four Suspense Novels of the 1950’s, in conversation with Megan Abbott
Sarah Weinman is News Editor for Publishers Marketplace, where she works on Publishers Lunch, a daily newsletter that anyone interested in publishing should subscribe to. Her crime writing and research credentials are impressive and make her a leading expert on crime fiction
For those interested in how social media can successfully create a platform for an author, check out the various ways in which Sarah leverages twitter and blogs to gain visibility and enhance her credentials. Further she models how to enhance interest and readership for her books in the companion website for these two new books. She has gathered a series of the most successful current crime fiction authors to write “appreciations” examining the works from the collections.
I am looking forward to meeting Sarah and hearing she and Megan in conversation.
See you there.
