What an enjoyable book launch!
The pandemic has affected all aspects of our lives. All readings, bookstore appearances, festivals, signings and book launches have been cancelled, except for a few that have gone virtual. The Ancient Dead's virtual book launch in January was lots of fun.
All books are available in trade paperback, ebook, and audio format.
And In other news...
These months of forced isolation and worry have had impacts on writers in various ways. At times its been difficult to block out the distractions and concentrate well enough to be creative. At other times, being forced to keep only our own company has given us lots of time to work!
Virtual appearances have picked up some of the slack from cancelled events, and Barbara has presented at several Zoom book clubs and talks, with others scheduled in the next couple of months. Thank you so much to readers for coming out to support writers during these bizarre times.
Barbara has also been hard at work on the the eleventh Inspector Green novel and the manuscript is now in its final proofing stage. It has been lots of fun to be back with old friends, and Inspector Green has enjoyed being back in the hunt again!
The book, entitled The Devil to Pay, comes out in October 2021. Meanwhile she has started work on the fifth Amanda Doucette novel, set on Vancouver Island's spectacular west coast. Pandemic restrictions are playing havoc with her research, but by hook or by crook, the book will come out in the fall of 2022.
