Preparing for the York Book Expo

The nerves have started kicking in. The York Book Expo is coming up this weekend. In addition to writing and producing books and adding things to the websites I should have been adding all along, such as the table of contents to The Early Punch Parodies of Sherlock Holmes page on Peschel Press. Now you can see what’s in the book and even read excerpts I’ve posted to Planet Peschel.

In the meantime, I need to print flyers, box books, and make sure the car is loaded and ready for the trip to the York Fairgrounds.

Here’s some things I’d like to share about the event:

Peschel Press will be at Booth #43 in the middle of the building. It’ll be in the center after you navigate a maze of twisty corridors, all looking alike:

York Book Expo

Clicking will make it bigger.

Admission is free (except to see David Rosenfelt, who you can tell is higher up on the food chain because he is not just a best-selling mystery author and dog fancier but he has a Wikipedia page as well).

So come by and chat. I’ll be happy to see you. And if you want to know what I look like, I’ll repost some interviews and a reading produced especially for the expo:

The first two are interviews in which I talk about starting the press and what I was up to before that:

Then, I read an essay from The Deluxe Complete, Annotated Secret Adversary in which a certain Christie detective makes a ghostly appearance.
