“Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet” Book Launch Was a Party at Bookworks

November 4, 2012 § 9 Comments

The book launch party for Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones was held at Bookworks on October 30, 2012, the day before Halloween. So totally fitting.

Darynda (wearing the hat) signed with fellow New Mexico authors Gabi Stevens and Katie Lane. Katie brought the hat.

The three authors took turns reading from their books. Katie Lane read the first few pages of her debut novel Going Cowboy Crazy.

“What kind of a brute owned it, anyway? Obviously, the kind who thought it went with his large pe—”

Katie stopped reading. “Are there any kids in here?”

The audience erupted with laughter.

“You don’t have to buy my books, but you do have to come up and touch them,” Katie said, referring to the model on the cover with his shirt hanging open. My advice—buy the book, too. It is every bit as enjoyable as looking at the hot cowboy. (Read my review here.)

Me with contemporary romance author Katie Lane.

Fantasy romance author Gabi Stevens said she acted before she wrote. Strike a pose, girl!

Gabi’s spirited reading from her latest book, Wishful Thinking, inspired me to pick up the first book in her Time of Transition trilogy, The Wish List.

Gabi shows how a bracelet she has owned forever matches the one worn by the heroine on the cover of her first book. This was not planned. This is magic.

Darynda Jones is a born storyteller. As a kid, she used to go around her neighborhood, knocking on doors and inviting people to come to her plays.

Katie Lane said she loved rooming with Darynda at an RWA conference because Darynda told bedtime stories and lulled Katie into sweet dreams.

I am really excited to start reading Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet. This is Darynda’s follow-up in the Charley Davidson series to Third Grave Dead Ahead, which was phenomenal. Read my Third Grave review here.

Thank you, Bookworks of Albuquerque, for throwing this launch party. It was a blast!
