Planning the Perfect Murder Event

Booksignings are just what they are. Book signings. You sit, you stand, you smile and you pretty much just do what you’re there for. Sign books.

Sure you get a chance to network and you get a chance to talk face to face with readers, but when you’re a murder or mystery type of gal, you really don’t want just the plain old book signing.

So in lieu of my upcoming release in 2008 of my second serial murder that takes place in Detroit, I plan to host the Perfect Murder party where the guest come in and figure out a murder. What better way to find your readers than to invite them to a party their dying to get to. (Yes, that was a pun.)

Murder parties are great ways to get your guest in and have fun. The winner of course gets a bag of books and promotional items, while everyone else had bought a book by me.

I’m so excited as I plan the murder out.

So tell me what’s your Perfect Murder Event? Have you been to one? What were the good things about it and what were the bad things about it?

Introduction and Shameless Plug

My name is Keith,
I write under the pen name D K Gaston. I am a new author with two novels being published in 2007. XII, a supernatural thriller in April and Lost Hours, a mystery thriller in November.

XIII is about a man who sold his soul to the devil for thirteen years of youth, fame and fortune. At the end of the term of the contract, Jason Peters goes on the run. The devil posing as a Los Angeles Bail Bondsman hires a bounty hunter (Avery Hudson) to go after Peters. Aided by a small town sheriff (Mary Jamison) the two has little time to find Peters before he becomes more beast than man. To make matters worse, a second bounty hunter is also after Peters and he's is not a man but a ruthless fallen angel.
This is not a novel filled with gore. It's more of a psychological thriller as Peters slowly transform into a monster. Avery is plagued by nightmares that will not go away until Peters is captured and Mary struggles to allow herself to feel again.
There's plenty of action, romance and suspense for everyone.
Available April 2007. Please visit my site at to read or listen to the prologue.

First Post to Die For

As I venture in my quest to find all the murderous mysteries and suspense novels in Michigan, I hope you - yes you reading this, can also help me find those authors as well.

Who am I?

Well, my name is Sylvia Hubbard and even though my base genre is romance, I'm also a suspense novelist. I love to have love and a little murder mixed in together to make the right receipe for mayhem in a story.

My current paperback novel is called Stone's Revenge - listed as a psychological suspense about the son of a serial killer getting revenge against the prosecuting attorney.

Sounds delicious?

Yeah, it is! Check it out at Amazon.

Most posts to come and I hope you enjoy as we grow and keep you guessing until the very end....
