Book Launch: The Red Queen Dies

Follow the White Rabbit to an UnBirthday Party

Red Queen

Where:  The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany, New York

What:  Book launch party to celebrate the publication of The Red Queen Dies, the first book in my new near- future police procedural series set in Albany (a parallel universe/alternate reality version).  As you might have guessed from the cover, the book has an Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass theme. So does the party.

Who:  You’re invited. Feel free to share the invitation with friends. I have a big cake.

When:  Saturday, September 14, 2013, starting at 3 PM

Why:  Because there’ll be food, drink, a door prize, and volunteers who have agreed to read scenes from the book. You’ll have fun.

All the best,

Frankie Y. Bailey

August Meeting

Mavens LogoJust a reminder that our next meeting of the Mavens of Mayhem (Upper Hudson SinC) is this Saturday, August 17th, at 10:30 am at the Bethlehem Public Library. Our speaker this month is Mary Hogencamp, who is a former NYS Trooper and will talk about her time with the State Police. I’m sure she has a lot of interesting stories to share.

Our writing prompt for August is:

It’s morning and you’re walking down the rain-soaked streets amid crowds of people who don’t hesitate to shove you out of the way to get where they are going. Suddenly you feel a tug on your arm and you’re pulled sideways until you come face-to-face with a man wearing a black hat and carrying an umbrella.

Why did he stop you?

If you choose to participate, write a scene or story (500-750 words max.) and be prepared to read it aloud (or have someone read it for you if you’re shy).

This is our last meeting before Bouchercon in September. I hope to see you there!
