Deadly Sins will air an episode about the March case on the Investigation Discovery channel, Jan. 26. I was interviewed a few months ago about An Unfinished Canvas and maybe out of 2 1/2 hours of shooting, they will get a couple of good clips! I understand that Asst. D.A. Tom Thurman and Sgt. Pat Postiglione were also interviewed. If you haven’t seen Deadly Sins, it’s a show that mixes re-enactment and interviews. I hope you’ll watch!
I am happy that Zone 3 has published my short story, The Major’s Wife. Thanks to Fiction Editor Barry Kitterman and all who work on this fine journal.
Check out a new anthology entitled Masters of True Crime: Chilling Stories of Murder and the Macabre. The true-crime anthology, available in bookstores and Amazon, includes narratives by more than a dozen writers. I contributed “Lost Innocence: Murder of a Girl Scout,” and Doug Jones has written “Escape from Fort Pillow.” Let me know what you think!
Save the date of the SFB: the weekend of Oct. 14-16.
Please join Doug Jones and me on Sunday, Oct. 16, 1:30-2:30, for our session on A SEASON OF DARKNESS, the story of the Marcia Trimble murder and investigation. Thanks to those loyal friends who have attended many of our signings. We will try to say something you haven’t heard before!
The third booksigning scheduled to celebrate the release of A Season of Darkness is on December 17, 11:00-1:00, at Sherlock’s Bookstore in Downtown Nashville. If you work in the downtown area, this might be a nice diversion at lunch time. Drop by and say hello to Doug and me.
Another signing for A Season of Darkness is scheduled for Saturday, December 11, at Mysteries & More from 2 to 4 p.m. Please put this date on your calendar. Mysteries & More is a charming neighborhood bookstore in the Lennox Village community of Nashville. Hope to see you there!
Doug Jones and I will be signing A Season of Darkness at Davis-Kidd Booksellers in Nashville on Thursday, December 9. A Season of Darkness is the story of Marcia Trimble, the nine-year-old Girl Scout whose disappearance in 1975 was the beginning of a mystery that took 34 years to solve. We are excited about launching our book on December 9 – please save the date!
Here is A Season of Darkness new cover. The book will be released December 7, 2010. The story is about a little girl who went across the street to sell Girl Scout cookies and never returned – and the murder investigation that took over three decades to solve.
A SEASON OF DARKNESS, the story of nine-year-old Marcia Trimble’s disappearance and murder and the 34-year-investigation that led to the conviction of her killer, will be released by Berkley Books in early December – in time for Christmas gifts! We should be getting the cover art soon.
This week Doug Jones and I finished our manuscript and submitted it to our editor at Berkley. A Season of Darkness is the Marcia Trimble story. It won’t be out for months, but I’m hoping to spread the word. People in Nashville have been captivated by the murder of the nine-year-old Girl Scout for almost 35 years. At last, her killer was convicted in the July trial. Doug and I have made every effort to tell the accurate and very detailed story. More about this in the months to come.
