If You Can't Stand the Heat

Looking for a good book? Just in time for Texas Mystery Month, I've got your next excellent reading material right here! My friend Robin Allen has a new novel out:  If You Can't Stand the Heat. It's a cozy mystery with a witty protag, so if you want a fun read with an interesting plot that moves at a fast pace, this is the book for you. It's gotten great reviews.











Yesterday was Robin's book launch at Book People in Austin.







Here's a small contingent of Austin WriterGrrls, including me in my jailbird dress. Well, it IS a book about a crime!






We followed the book launch with drinks at the Driskill Hotel on 6th Street. What a great bar. Cozy and luxurious -- old Texas money, dontcha know.



Support new authors and buy this book! You can check out the reviews for Robin's book at Good Reads: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9644570-if-you-can-t-stand-the-heat

This book sounds like something EXACTLY up my wife's alley. She loves these kinds of books. I'm going to tell her about it ASAP.

Let me know if ever you'd like a hand to escape from your jailbird dress.

Seriously though, you are stunning.

That's fantastic! I will be picking up a copy of the book. Great pictured of you in your jailbird dress! Darling dress, by the way!

So glad I got out of there before the photo was taken. I so hate having my picture taken.

I can vouch for the book. Most fun read. Can't wait for the next Poppy Markham adventure.

Ooh, another book I'm gonna have to buy!

Driskill, heh? I've yet to go there. But someday soon, when my chip comes in. Cool Ranch Doritos, that is.

So I am going to suggest this book when we review local authors at my book club. Does she get down to San Antonio any?

Thanks, everyone! And thank you, my friend, for helping a Grrl out with her book. And thanks for coming to the release party and the after party. And thanks for wearing that cool jail dress. Around me. In public. Who wants to look at me, a soon-to-be-famous author, with your hotness around? Sheesh!

Joker_SATX - Yes, I get to SA. I'm working on a book signing at The Twig.

Fred Miller said...

Yeah, I'd sneak into your jail cell at night.

Sandra said...

That sounds like serious fun. Plus I loved seeing you in the pic. I'm all about seeing the bloggers in pictures.
