I'm really proud to announce SHAKEN: STORIES FOR JAPAN. SHAKEN is a collaborative effort; an anthology of 20 short stories contributed by top-selling authors from around the globe, edited by 2011 Edgar Best-Novel nominee Timothy Hallinan. This book is being published by the Japan America Society of Southern California, with 100%--absolutely 100%--of the proceeds going directly to earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan. The authors, the editor, and my Crew all donated our services to bring this book to fruition.

It's going to be available on Amazon sometime today, I hope--and I sincerely hope that everyone who reads this, and sees the blogs and tweets about it around the Net will rush to Amazon to buy it. Please tell your friends--tell anyone you know. As soon as I have a link, I'll post it here and I'll be tweeting it, too.

This collection was born out of the writers' concern for the people in the disaster zone. SHAKEN: STORIES FOR JAPAN is an attempt by writers to pool their talents to help people in need, as musicians and actors so often do.

The book contains original stories by Brett Battles, Cara Black, Vicki Doudera, Dianne Emley, Dale Furutani, Timothy Hallinan, Stefan Hammond, Rosemary Harris, Naomi Hirahara, Wendy Hornsby, Ken Kuhlken, Debbi Mack, Adrian McKinty, I.J. Parker, Gary Phillips, Hank Phillippi Ryan, Jeffrey Siger, Kelli Stanley, C.J. West, and Jeri Westerson. As a group, these authors have won every mystery award there is and sold hundreds of thousand of copies. They're all working at the top of their games in this volume. SHAKEN; STORIES FROM JAPAN is art for heart's sake, and the purchase price will help those who are struggling to repair, or at least soothe, these terrible losses.

SHAKEN: Stories for Japan is a collaborative effort of more than 20 writers to raise money for survivors and victims of Japan's devastating Tsunami.

Holiday Closing Alert! Presidents' Day, 2020   

Happy Presidents' Day 2020! We're closed today, but back tomorrow.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever, in 11 years now, we're going to be closed for Presidents' Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Sunday and Monday, February 16th and 17th, 2020.

No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, February 18th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
