Your library card “checks out” this great @mnstatefair deal, August 27 only

IMG_0596Tomorrow only (August 27), public library cardholders (age 13 – 64) get $2 off admission (one discounted ticket per card) in celebration of READ AND RIDE DAY at the Minnesota State Fair.

And that’s not all. You can meet Minnesota authors (including me) throughout the day at the MELSA (Metro Library Service Agency) tent in Carousel Park (west of the Grandstand bridge). There will be giveaways, readings, and signings by many authors.

My slot is 9AM-11AM. My three Arvo Thorson mysteries will be available for purchase all day, thanks to Subtext Books of St. Paul. I hope to see you there!



Rent a Drunk – FREE!

Go on a reading binge this weekend on your Kindle! Amazon Prime members can rent my “smashing debut” mystery, Washed Up — featuring morose, alcoholic Arvo Thorson — for FREE!  If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you can get a trial membership. More details at the link*.

Anyway. There you have it. Rent the book that Library Journal called “a smashing debut….with astute observation and gorgeous prose.” If you don’t like Arvo, you can give him back when you’re done with them. Of course, I’m hoping you will like him and keep him around for awhile!
