I contacted several big name bookstores to kick off the second leg of my summer book tour.  The manager of a Northern California Barnes and Noble bookstore said she was not scheduling any book tours unless she could be guaranteed a minimum of 100 books sold during the reading.  When...

I've been home now for several days since returning from my Texas book tour to promote Cartel, and finally feel like I'm catching up on things!

I put the words "day off" in quotation marks because it was non-stop from early morning until late night! And I was definitely exhausted by the time I made it back to my hotel on South Padre Island, but it was worth it. The day kicked off with a meet-up with Nicholas Stein, series producer for...
