2017 started out with a bang! An Unsettling Crime for Samuel Craddock came out January 3. There was a round of events, Pictured below are the fabulous launch party and some bookstore and library events. Tucson Festival of Books included the panel pictured below and panels with authors Shannon Baker and Andrew Gross (unfortunately, no photos). Left Coast Crime was especially fun this year in Hawaii, and an added bonus was being a finalist for a Lefty Award for Best Mystery Novel of 2016 for The Necessary Murder of Nonie Blake.
