Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo. (Spanish for "Just mustard, please.")
Then what's a good reason for partying today, May 6, 2014? (Well, it's the tenth anniversary of the "Friends" series finale . . .)
Benighted mortals! Today is the official publication day of This Private Plot, the third title in the somewhat optimistically styled "Oliver Swithin Mystery Decalogy," although if I continue at this rate, I'll be 107 before Oliver and Effie get to third base.*
Anyway, don't waste your time reading this blog entry. Go and buy it! Now! (We cozy authors are tough.)
Or better still, mail me $5 directly, then you don't have to read it.
The other titles are also out in paperback today, for the first time. Buy them too.
*Just kidding, that happened between An Embarrassment of Corpses and Murdering Ministers. But most of This Private Plot is about Oliver's failure to score a home run in the bedroom of his childhood.
