Just a quick note to update my quest to meet readers in person and promote River Bottom Blues (and maybe sell a copy or two). It does my heart good that the word is getting out to the blues harmonica community. Many blues harp brethren, who have read my book, have sent me very kind and favorable e-mails indicating that they love my murder mystery. Once one bares their soul and puts out a story for all to read, getting such positive comments makes it all worthwhile.
That sort of feedback certainly lets me know that I just might have gotten it right. I welcome ALL comments from my readers. Anyone who has had the opportunity to take a spin with Mitty Andersen and Pete Bolden's quest to catch the killers of their close friend, feel free to contact me at richardbush.bush at gmail dot com or rkbush51 at att dot net. If so inclined, leave a short sentence or two on the book's site on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Just takes a minute and helps sales. Now, on to the reason for this blatant self promotional.
The Mobius Coffeehouse signing was a great debut book launch in Brenham. A lot of old friends dropped by and I met a slew of new ones.
The Book Nook--has been added to my signing journey on March 17 from 1-3 at 106 S. Douglas, Brenham, Tx. Swing into town, check out the crops of bluebonnet flowers in the area, and come by and see me. www.brenhambooknook.com
The Navasota Blues Alley--has agreed to host my signing on April 14 during the city's Mance Lipscomb Birthday Bash at 129 E. Washington Ave, Navasota, Tx. Should be a fine time with Marcia Ball entertaining for FREE. www.navasotabluesalley.com www.bluesbluebonnetsbbq.com
Murder By The Book--Houston's premier book store specializing in mysteries has lined up May 31 6:30 pm for me to hawk River Bottom Blues in the big city at 2342 Bissonet St, Houston, Tx. www.murderbooks.com FROM there, I'll head over to the Houston Blues Society's monthly jam hosted by the best blues club in the city, The Big Easy at 5731 Kirby Dr., Houston, Tx. I'll be able to blow a little blues harp and visit with blues fans about my book. www.thebigeasyblues.com www.houstonbluessociety.org
The Hasting book signing in College Station, Tx on March 24, which I mentioned earlier is still on from 1-3 also. Okay, 'nuff for now.
