On the road ... again!

by Lizzie Turner from the Ashton Corners Book Club Mysteries

by Erika Chase

She's doing it again! Our author, Erika Chase is heading out of town leaving me holding the fort. Well, at the very least, filling in on Killer Characters again. Where's she headed this time, you may well ask?

Sunny, warm and very inviting Monterey, CA and the popular Left Coast Crime Conference. That's where!

This will be her third visit to a conference in that location, a place that's clearly enchanted her. Doesn't she realize that we have deadlines approaching? Okay, maybe several months off, but book #5 does have to be written, and re-written with any number of edits. And here she goes off to have fun while the rest of us stick around here in Ashton Corners, AL and work our backsides off trying to solve yet another murder.

I'm sworn to secrecy at his point, so can't tell you anything about the new book. Not even the title. But I will tell you there's a murder and that it's up the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society to solve it. Surprised?

Meanwhile, we will send good vibes with Erika and hope she does a good job of spreading the word about our three, soon to be four, books. That is, if she can tear herself away from that amazing coastline and scenery. Did you know she's a water freak? She loves water -- oceans, lakes, rivers. Oh well, I guess she deserves a break now and then.

And she does go on and on about all the wonderful panels, terrific authors, and great readers at LCC. So, I guess she will be doing some work, especially on Sat. March 22 at 11:30 when she's on a panel with Kate Carlisle, Mary Jane Maffini/Victoria Abbott and Jenn McKinlay. Wish I could sit in on that one!

How many of you will be heading to Left Coast Crime, too?

  1. Authors may think they control their characters, but they have that backward. Mwah-hah-hah!
