|The banner drew quite a bit of attention, especially when the wind gusted and blew it over!
John Floyd has had a really nice year … sales of Fifty Mysteries have been very good, and his excellent suspense story, “Molly’s Plan,” will be included in the 2015 Best American Mystery Stories, which will be released in October and is edited by Otto Penzler. “Molly’s Plan” has been mentioned in national book reviews by Publisher’s Weekly and Kirkus Reviews; both pretty much call it a must-read. Additionally, John has a story in the upcoming Mississippi Noir collection, which will be edited by author Tom Franklin. And his next collection of stories, Dreamland, will be published by Dogwood Press in 2016. I have connections … I’ve read it … and it’s really, really good!
I’m also excited about the new Randy Pierce novel, The Peter Bay. It will be released in March 2016, and at that time we’ll also roll out a paperback edition of Randy’s out-of-print debut novel, Pain Forgiven. Since The Peter Bay is a sequel to Pain Unforgiven, you’ll want to pick up both!
Valerie Winn is also hard at work on her followup novel to Forsaking Mimosa. Watch for it in late 2016 … it will be worth the wait!
Upcoming appearances: I will visit the Magee Public Library in Simpson County, Mississippi on Saturday, September 19 for Crazy Day, and Randy is all set to speak to the Friends of the Aberdeen Library at noon next Wednesday, September 16. We’re busy setting up November/December appearances at Mississippi Books A Million stores and a number of other spots, and we look forward to seeing you!
