THE NIGHT SEASON comes out this Tuesday!

You can pre-order the new book in real life at a real bookstore, or online in a virtual one, RIGHT NOW.  Isn't that exciting?  You know what else is exciting?  I finally have buy buttons up for the new book in the "store" section of this website. 

"The Night Season" hits stores March 1!

The next installment of the Heartsick series, "The Night Season," is almost out.  You can pre-order it basically anywhere.  Pre-ordering is SO fun and make me very, very happy.  Publisher's Weekly listed "The Night Season" in its Top 10 Mysteries/Thrillers for spring.  I don't have buy buttons for the new book yet (or early reviews, or really, anything) on this website, but I'm working on it, so check back.  Thanks, Everyone. 

Your Chance to Be a Movie Mogul!

My good pal Andy Mingo is putting the finishing touches on his hilarious short film, "Georgie's Big Break," which features an appearance by yours truly!  Also, my dashing husband Marc worked as assistant director on the project.  As you know, though, movie's aren't cheap, and Andy has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money needed to finish it up.  Go on over to the Kickstarter page, check out the trailer, and chip in if you're so inclined.  Every dollar helps.  Literally.

NPR's 100 Best Killer Thrillers


Last week had its readers vote on the top 100 thriller novels of all time, and when they released the results, "Heartsick" had squeaked in right at number 100!  Thanks to everyone who voted for it, and check out the full results here.



Good Food (and a Story) for a Good Cause

On August 20th I'll be participating in a great event called Dinner at My House for Our House.  It's a benefit for Our House, a Portland nonprofit which provides healthcare, housing, and other vital services to low-income people living with HIV/AIDS.  For $75, you get a tantalizing dinner in a fascinating setting, and I'll be on hand with a special story written just for the occasion.  For details, click here.  

Trade paperback covers

Hey everybody!  I just got a look at the covers for the new trade paperback editions of Heartsick and Sweetheart, and I have to say they're great.  Classy stuff, really--you'd never know from looking at them the sort of twisted stuff waiting inside!  They're due out July 20, with Evil at Heart following on August 31.  So get your orders in now, here and here and here.  No collection is complete without them, and they make fabulous Labor Day gifts!
