First of all, let me send warm wishes for a happy **th birthday to my beautiful sister, Beth-Ann, in cold New England. Also born this day, my wonderful sister-in-law, Akemi. Hugs.
Baseball Short Stop. Spring training is open and I am growing more excited each day.
Seems like the D’Backs have a dozen candidates for their starting rotation. Is that good or bad?
New rules to speed up the game? Bad.
Tucson Festival Of Books. I have longed to attend this event, which is one of the largest book fairs in the country, for many years. Even more since publishing my first book in 2011.
And now I am going to be there March 14 and 15 along with hundreds of authors including over twenty from our Bookgoodies.com group.
Click for our: Saturday lineup. Sunday lineup.
Bookgoodies.com and Deborah Carney, with Awsomegang.com and Vinny O’Hare, are sponsoring our group. They are both accomplished photographers and have numerous books to their credit.
If you are in or near Tucson find us at :
booth #112 near the Student Union and the AZ Daily Star (2014 gallery).
You might want to visit Scott Turow, Dave Barry, J A Jance, Valerie Plame, Iris Johansen, but don’t forget to stop by and see us.
I will be signing my books on Saturday only at 9:30-11:30, and 1:30-3:30.

I was looking forward to participating, and was unable to attend. Read about it here:

My next book, some are wondering, is slowly progressing. I explained delays due to surgeries and puppies. Actually two manuscripts are in (slow) progress.
One, Bruce DelReno Mystery III, untitled, but this time the victim is not discovered by Bruce. And, it is not in Willowtree.
Two, is a book narrated by a dog. I am working on and trying to decide whether the dog is Bruce's. If so, maybe combining the two stories. A twofer. We'll see.
