Critical Damage Update. Launch Party! Author Event!
(UPDATED 1/30/14 WITH ANOTHER READING! SEE #3) The 2nd Mark Mallen book, Critical Damage arrives in less than three months. April 8th. Can you believe it? Where does the time go? Not only did I make some business cards (see above), I’ve already scheduled a couple events I’d like to invite you to (if you’re in the bay area when they happen):
1. The Critical Damage launch party will be held at Diesel Books in Oakland on Thursday, April 10th @ 7pm. There will be some food things to nibble on and of course wine, beer, and maybe even Johnny Walker Black. (How could I have a Mallen party and NOT supply Scotch?) My thanks goes out to the Diesel Books event coordinator, Cheryl Ryan. She did a great job working with me to get this set up.
2. I will be giving a reading at Books Inc. Berkeley, on Wednesday, April 30th @ 7pm. Special thanks goes out to Anna Fonte, the Berkeley Books Inc. events coordinator. Such a warm and welcoming, helpful person.
3. I’m not also giving a reading at Books Inc. S.F. Marina, on Thursday, May 8th @ 7pm. Special thanks goes out to Amylia Pounds, the Chestnut Street Books Inc. event coordinator. She rocked at helping to get this set up.
And support your local independent book store, people! It would be a very sad, gray world without independent bookstores!
That’s all the news that’s fit to print right now. I’ll be having two or three contests/giveaways, so stay tuned. You need a Mark Mallen bowling shirt, yeah?
