What's Up In Lipstick Land

Pengirl_1 What's Up in Lipstick Land

Just a quickie update on this Sunday before Bouchercon, where two of the Book Tarts will be making an appearance on the "Homicide in High Heels" panel at 1 p.m. on Thursday, September 1.  Harley and Susan are also up for Anthony Awards for Best First Mystery and Best Paperback Original, respectively, so we hope the Tart mojo is goin' in Chicago.  Needless to say, both are happy just to be nominated.  (Really, they are.)

Other developments in Lipstick Land:

  • Harley's second book, DATING IS MURDER, has been nominated for Best Mystery by the Southern California Booksellers Association.  You go, girl!
  • An interesting follow-up to Susan's "Looking for Mr. Maybe" column...she's been selected as one of the "top 20 singles in St. Louis" by glossy St. Louis Magazine!  She promises to tell all when the parties start up this November and the special issue hits the racks.
  • Sarah's gearing up for a tour for her juicy stand-alone, THE SECRET LIVES OF FORTUNATE WIVES, hitting stores after Labor Day.  Never too early to reserve a copy, we say!
  • Nancy's working on an outline for Book Six in her Blackbird Sisters series while battling a bad back.  She just recovered from a broken toe and finally got back on the treadmill, and now this.  Yeesh.  Can someone get a shaman to do a "get well" dance directed at Pittsburgh?

Hope all our readers in New Orleans are headed toward higher ground.  To our friends in Florida, are y'all okay out there?  Like Rosanne Rosannadanna used to say, "It's always something."

Congratulations all around!

Susan and Harley, congrats on the nominations and good luck. Wish I could be there with you.

Susan...invite me up when the parties start. ;)

Sara, you are making a tour stop in Columbia, MO...right???

Nancy, I hope your back is better soon. I know how miserable that can be. Hang tough, I'll send some good energy your way.

Best of luck to all the book tarts.


See you there, ladies. And I'm truly looking forward to it.

Would love to meet you all at Bouchercon (although I did already meet Susan at a long ago Deadly Ink in New Jersey). Will try to make it to the panel, but mine is right after that at 2:30 and I may be busy throwing up in the ladies room.

Karen, are you on the panel with my good buddy Letha Albright? If so, try to sit next to her. She's very calm and carries barf bags in her purse (okay, I'm lying about the latter). See you there, and Dusty, too! Thanks from all of us, Kimberly and Lisa! Kadi, you are such a party girl. I will do my best to alert you to all the soirees in November! ;-)
