We had a great turnout at Broadway Books on April 24 for a joint reading with Rob Yardumian and his debut novel, "The Sound of Songs Across the Water." 

Great questions from the audience. Rob and I compared notes on character development, plot and the use of landscape in our novels.

Thanks, Broadway Books!

It was exciting doing my very first signing of an Advanced Reading copy of "The Gods of Second Chances" for Joe Kurmaskieon at Broadway Books on Independent Book Store day! Met some wonderful shoppers, and chatted with Whitney Otto.
