Death at the Savoy arrived on my doorstep early this morning. It’s been a long but mostly delightful journey getting here, in close company with my old friend and collaborator, Prudence Emery.

For an author there is nothing quite like the momentary high that you experience when you first hold the book in your hands that after nearly two years of sweat and toil has become a reality. Prudence and I had so much help and support getting to this moment. Many thanks to everyone at our publisher, Douglas & McIntyre, to the platoon of editors at West-End Books and at D&M who tirelessly saved us from ourselves, and to Glenn Brucker who designed the unique, attention-grabbing cover. There cannot be enough thanks when it comes to our indefatigable agent, Bill Hanna—the whirling dervish!

Now the hard part begins—selling Death at the Savoy! So far so good. Hollywood has optioned the book. There is an audio book deal for the first two novels. Even the early reviews have been laudatory. Death is being officially launched virtually May 30 and, of course, everyone is invited.

For now, the authors are struggling into fishnet stockings, smearing on the red lipstick and preparing to get out there and promote the book. You, dear reader, can help by pre-ordering Death at the Savoy online at Chapters or Amazon or at your favorite independent bookstore (the official pub date is May 28).

Meanwhile, time to stop feeling warm and fuzzy and return to earth.  We have book two in the series to get out!
