January Magazine Interview - and Book Tour Commences!

If you're interested in more tidbits from Lisa check out January Magazine's Author Snapshot (just online today). Lisa was interviewed by Linda L. Richards who is the editor of January Magazine and the author of five books including her most recent Death Was in the Picture.

Also, if you're in the Bay Area, we hope to see you at one of the book readings this week. You have the choice between tonight at M is for Mystery in San Mateo (but you better hurry, as she's talking at 7pm)! Tomorrow night she'll be at A Great Good Place for Books in Oakland (this will be a fun one for sure!), Thursday night at Barnes & Noble in El Cerrito, and (whew!) Friday back in San Francisco at Book Passage at the Ferry Building. Come to one or all....

For those not in the Bay Area, you can check out all her tour dates here.

Breaking News!

Curse of the Spellmans has been nominated for an Edgar Award for Best Novel. Shocked? Believe me, you are not alone.

Here's the complete list of nominees:

  • Missing by Karin Alvtegen (Felony & Mayhem Press)
  • Blue Heaven by C.J. Box (St. Martin's Minotaur)
  • Sins of the Assassin by Robert Ferrigno (Simon & Schuster – Scribner)
  • The Price of Blood by Declan Hughes (HarperCollins – William Morrow)
  • The Night Following by Morag Joss (Random House – Delacorte Press)
  • Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz (Simon & Schuster)

My flabbergasted thanks go out to the Mystery Writers of America and all my readers. If anyone knows where I should send the “gift baskets”, please pass that information along.

(P.S. If you’re new to me and my books, I still say you should read them in order, which means starting with the non-Edgar-nominated, inferior Spellman Files.)

Brief report from the VIWF

If you ever have a chance to go to the Vancouver International Writers’ Festival, do it. It was great. I also recommend going to Vancouver even without any festival. But I was there for a festival, so I’ll talk about that.

I was on two panels with Linda L. Richards, author of Death Was the Other Woman and the editor of January Magazine, a great online books-and-authors ezine. Anyway, I was going to blog about the events, but Linda has already done it better than I could, so I’m just going to be lazy and link to her post, High Class Complaints.

Also, I did one more event in Vancouver, called the Literary Cabaret, featuring Sal Ferreras and his band. The actor and author Stephen E. Miller was kind enough to perform with me. Here's a picture:

The other highlight of the weekend was chatting with the widely acclaimed author Amitav Ghosh, whose novel Sea of Poppies was shortlisted for the 2008 Booker Prize. We discussed intricate literary matters such as our mutual affection for the film “What About Bob?”
