Flew up from Los Angeles this morning to visit the wonderful Seattle Mystery Bookshop to sign my new novel Damage Control, which is just out this month and already into a third printing. Folks here had to scramble to get First Editions, but they're signed now folks, so get them here while you can.
It's been great fun chatting with customers and getting grilled by J.B., who was fascinated by the new perfume column I write monthly in the Los Angeles Times Magazine. J.B. wears Royal Lime aftershave by the way. And I'm wearing Serge Lutens' amazingly indolic and yummy Fleur d"Orangier.
A light rain is sprinkling and soon I'll head off to Olympia, where I'll be speaking at the Olympia-Timberlake Library this evening.
Thanks to J.B. and Fran and Adele for the wonderful and warm reception.
If you missed Denise here but you're in the area over the weekend, she'll be at the Northwest Book Fest over in Kirkland, so drop by and say hi!
