How exciting to have another soon to be published author amongst us!

Must be something in the water.
Two published authors under one roof!

Thanks, all. Yep, my ski-related mystery, DOUBLE BLACK, will be published by St. Martins Press in January, 2010.

How exciting! A ski related whodunit is just what this sport has been needing.

That's terrific, Ski Diva!

The book I never wrote is called "Murder at the Heli Lodge." You actually did it - fantastic!

Bump!!

This IS available on Amazon Kindle right now

Yeah, I just noticed that last night.  Of course, my autographed hardback arrived yesterday.  Looking at the price difference, I've decided I only need ONE autograph and future books will be in Kindle format.

NOT AVAILABLE TODAY.  Per Ski Diva, some kind of fight going on between Amazon and the publisher over e-book pricing.

Darn! I must have clicked on that "ask the publisher to put this on Kindle" five times. Guess I missed my window of opportunity. Would have been nice to save a few Vermont trees.

In case anyone's interested, I'll be signing books at the Mount Snow passholder's party, Saturday, February 13, 4-6 PM; at Phoenix Books in Essex, VT, Friday, February 19, 7PM, and at the Spruce Peak Ski Shop at Stowe Mountain Resort, Saturday, February 20, 11AM-2PM.

You can also order signed copies from Northshire Books in Manchester, VT. Just note that you want a signed copy in the Comments field.

 I got my signed copy in the mail yesterday!  
I think I'll take it on my ski trip to Utah and read it on the plane!

I got an autographed copy at Northshire Books last weekend (or was it the week before?).    I haven't had time to read lately (packing to move at the moment and don't stay awake long enough to get into a storyline), but when I was awake that one night, I read a couple of chapters.   

If I'm anything like other readers, I judge a book by the first few pages.   The tone and rhythm is set by page 6 (or should be) and you'll know if you want to keep reading or just set it down.  This one is very readable!  Good Job, Wendy!
