The Haunting Hour

As I mentioned in my fall roundup, Dustin Tucker, who starred in the irreverent Portland Stage production of Sherlock Holmes' "The Hound of the Baskervilles" that I attended last year, is adapting my short story "The Well" for the stage as part of his Haunting Hour series.

The Haunting Hour runs from October 25th to November 4th, and also features work from Tess Gerritsen, John Cariani, and many more. Bob Keyes wrote a fantastic article about it for Maine Today.

If you're interested in attending, you can get tickets here. I'll be on hand for the Saturday, October 28th performance, if you'd like to say hello or get a book signed. I'll have a few books on sale for the duration of the run, but please feel free to bring your own copies on the 28th if you'd like. I hope to see you there!

RED RIGHT HAND Paperback Cover Reveal!

What do you do when the cover of your hardback's damn near perfect? You don't mess with it too much, that's what. RED RIGHT HAND's paperback cover keeps the indelible image of the original, but it's brighter, punchier, and more dynamic. It comes out October 10th. Look for it wherever finer books are sold.

The Stalker's Guide to Finding Chris at B'con 2017

At long last, Bouchercon 2017 is nearly upon us. From where I'm sitting, it looks to be a great one. For one thing, RED RIGHT HAND is up for the Anthony Award for Best Novel (and comes out in paperback the Tuesday before). For another, I've never been to Toronto, so I'm really looking forward to exploring (read: eating and drinking my way around) the city. And last, but certainly not least, it's been way too long since I got the chance to hang with my tribe.

Provided the Canadian authorities allow me to cross the border, here's where an enterprising stalker* might find me:

Man, that's one heck of a lineup.

It promises to be an amazing night of story and song. (Don't worry; I'm not providing any of the song.) Click through for more information, or to purchase tickets.
