When in Kuwait ...

… visit the Heartbreak Lounge coffee shop.

This is an actual ad/photo from a new coffee shop in Kuwait City, Kuwait. No connection to my novel of the same name, as far as I know. But maybe I have a fan base in the Middle East I wasn't aware of.

Where I'll be at Bouchercon 2016

Bouchercon 2016 kicks off in New Orleans on Wed. Sept. 14, and I'll be out and about a bit there. On Thursday (9/13) at 9 a.m., I'll be part of a panel titled "Another Tricky Day: Problems All Authors Face," with moderator Scott Adlerberg,and fellow panelists J.T. Ellison, Sharan Newman, John Billheimer and Peter Swanson. Signing to follow.

On Friday afternoon, I'll take part in a group signing for the new Mulholland Books anthology THE HIGHWAY KIND: Tales of Fast Cars, Desperate Drivers and Dark Roads, which features my short story "Night Run," as well as contributions from Michael Connelly, Diana Gabaldon, George Pelecanos, C.J. Box, Ace Atkins, James Sallis, Joe Lansdale, Gary Phillips and many more (check out a cool Spotify playlist editor Patrick Millikin put together for the book).
Box, Atkins, Lansdale, Philips, Sallis and Millikin will also be on hand for the signing, which will be held at Mystery Mike's table in the book room, from 3:30 to 4:15.

And on Thursday at 5:15, I'll be contributing – along with many other Minotaur authors – to a one-sentence-at-a-time collaborative short story effort.

Hope to see some folks at all three.
