Lori Rader-Day’s UNDER A DARK SKY

Lori Rader-Day has been on tour for her new book UNDER A DARK SKY. Just off an Anthony Award win at Bouchercon World Mystery Mystery convention her latest book is getting even more buzz than her first two books which were amazing. I caught up with her in Milwaukee at Boswell Book Company and got to see her interviewed by Carole Barrowman who is a champion for the mystery genre and an author in her own right.

On the Road – with Jenny Milchman

Despite the snowy weather debut author Jenny Milchman came into Milwaukee, she did the Morning Blend TV show and then later a signing over at Mystery One Books which is where we caught up with her. For someone touring with a book called COVER OF SNOW (Ballantine) it seemed like a perfect night to meet her and talk books. For all of you folks working on getting published, this was her debut book, but also her 8th book written and it’s proof the perseverance pays off. COVER OF SNOW is an amazing debut. About the book: Nora Hamilton wakes one winter morning to find her police officer husband dead of an apparent suicide. Having trouble...
