Booklaunch Party!

Not for me. Mine isn't until June. You're all invited.

You're also invited to my friend Melanie Lynne Hauser's Booklaunch Party, for the debut of her second novel, Super Mom Saves the World.

It's a chick lit novel, mixed with super heroes and villains. Think Spiderman, if he were a single suburban soccer mom.

I like her books, and like her, and not just because she's having free beer at the party.

If you're in the Chicagoland area on March 7 at 7:00pm, come by and say hello. It's taking place in Glen Ellyn, IL, at The Bookstore. If you can't make it, call them and order a signed book over the phone.

I'll be there. So it's a good place to corner me and ask, "Joe, what's up with the blog lately? Are you on vacation?"

Uh, no. I'm writing back-to-back novels, which isn't as easy as I thought it would be.

I just finished a stand alone horror novel, and now I'm working on Jack Daniels #5 (The book, funny guy. Not the drink.)

So it's been nonstop writing, stopping only to blurb a few friends, do a few speaking events, and occasionally shower. There hasn't been much time for blogging lately.

In April, The Newbie's Guide will resume multiple posts per week.

In the meantime, if you have anything to gripe about, Vent Club is open.

Hope to see some of you at Mel's party. You can also catch me in Homewood, IL on the 18th---I'm doing a library with Marcus Sakey. And in April, I'll be at Sleuthfest.
