New York Times Best Seller's List: The Spellmans Strike Again!

The Spellmans Strike Again debuted at #16 on the New York Times Hardcover Fiction Best Seller's list today. It actually tied for #15, so it was in the printed edition. And it came in #9 on the Los Angeles Times Hardcover Best Seller's list for April 4th. Very exciting!

There are still a number of places where you can catch Lisa on her book tour. If you were planning to attend the event in San Francisco on April 9th at Book Passage at the Ferry Building, note that the time is actually 6pm (not 7pm). Hope to see you there if you're in the Bay Area. And if you're in Texas (Houston or Dallas), she's heading your way tomorrow!

The Innocence Project: Guest Blog Post

Check out the Innocence Project's blog to read Lisa's post The Spellmans Start a Grassroots Movement. In the post Lisa talks about how the storyline (of Free Schmidt!) in The Spellmans Strike Again came to be.

As she writes:

Recently someone asked me why I became interested in the subject of wrongful convictions. I found that I didn't really have an answer. The subject has always been on my radar, as far as I recall. It's the kind of question that should be answered with a question: How can you not be? Read post at the Innocence Blog.

Interested in being part of the grassroots movement? If so, be sure to check out the Free Schmidt! website for t-shirts and more info. Also, visit the Innocence Project website for more about the cases, and what you can do to help.

Indie Next List Great Reads: The Spellmans Strike Again

Thanks to the ABA for including The Spellmans Strike Again on The April 2010 Indie Next List Great Reads. Anne McMahon, of Boswell Book Company in Milwaukee, WI, writes the review:

"The fourth . . . installment of the Spellman Quartet finds the Spellmans spying on each other more than they are for their clients. Mom is keeping tabs on Isabel's dates in the hopes that she'll get married. The kids want to know why parts of the house are disappearing. Could someone really be stealing doorknobs and light fixtures? Lutz has written a quirky and sometimes bizarre tale that's definitely good for a laugh."

Reader's Guide for The Spellmans Strike Again now available
