Criminal Minds Guest Blog and Book Giveaway

I'm guest blogging over at Criminal Minds today. Comment to be eligible to win a signed copy of the latest in my Detective Nan Vining series, LOVE KILLS, that's just out this week! Check it out!

Had a fantastic turnout for my book launch at Vroman's in Pasadena. There's a photo below and more to come. Pasadena Now's James MacPherson was terrific to attend and take photos. Emma Petievich catered and the food was delish and beautifully displayed (email me for her contact info). I kept cracking myself up over the slide show I put together to "illustrate" Love Kills.

Pasadena blogger, Cafe Pasadena, brought me a box of macarons from EuroPane (to die for). After the signing, I went across the street with some friends to Roy's where they treated me to a Roy's Hawaiian Martini (to die for and is my limit with those bad boys).
This writer's life sometimes can be pretty darn great.

If you missed the book launch, Vroman's has plenty of signed books in stock and I have a bunch of appearances coming up. This promotional train has just left the station, baby! 


  1. Your "cracking up" made me think for a moment I was mistaken: oh, this one is actually a comedy book?! After all, the title, "Love Kills", sounds kinda funny.

    I hope other local blogger's attend your other appearances.

  2. Congratulations, Dianne. It sounds like a wonderful, heady night!

  3. Cafe, the slide show was a flight of lunacy on my part.

    Thanks, Petrea! It was fun.

  4. I would love to read your book—please enter me to win! Thanks!!
