Drowning Spool out soon!

Mark your calendars if you’re in or near the Twin Cities: On Saturday, February 7, I’ll be doing a signing at Once Upon A Crime mystery bookstore from 12 to 2.  And at Excelsior Bay Books on Saturday, February 15 from 1 to 2 or 2:30.  (I’ll be having lunch at Antiquity Rose beforehand, if you want a cute place in Excelsior to come ahead of time.)
