This weekend I’ll be at one of Austin’s biggest annual events: the Texas Book Festival. They’re expecting 40,000 people at the festival over the weekend, which is a whole lot of book love.
If you’re anywhere nearby, I hope you’ll stop by and say hello.

Tomorrow I’m speaking at the Texas Book Festival. Which is a big damn deal, y’all. I am stoked to have been invited. Details:
11:00 AM — 12:00 PM Saturday
CLOSE TO MIDNIGHT
Location: Capitol Extension Room E2.014
From the Festival program:
Thrillers boast some of the best plot twists, cliff-hangers, and spy gadgets in literature. From assassinations to international security, what’s not to like about a little trickery and espionage? Join Mark Pryor, Meg Gardiner, and Jay Brandon as they discuss their tales of uncovering blood letters, preventing terrorist attacks, and even searching for a killer no one believes exists.
That last one would be my tale, Phantom Instinct. Come on down if you’re anywhere in the Lone Star State.
I’m happy to announce that I’ll be taking part in the 2014 Texas Book Festival. No, that’s inaccurate. I’m honored, jazzed, and stoked that the festival has invited me. Tens of thousands of book lovers will descend on the festival next month. 275 authors have been asked to take part. It’s really great that I’m one of them.
The festival takes place in Austin, on the State Capitol grounds. It runs the weekend of October 25-26.
And it’s free. So come on down, y’all. I’d love to see you.
