Ann’s February Inklings–Giveaway Goodies, and More!

One month later…

What in the heck happened to January? I was just getting around to celebrating the new year and making some resolutions, but now it’s too late. I guess I’ll just have to continue with my bad ways and wait until next January comes around to enroll in Self Improvement 101.

Without further ado, on to this month’s newsletter and the fun freebie I can’t wait to share.

Nearly Departed in Deadwood Cover 300

“The first time I came to Deadwood I got shot in the ass.” –Violet Parker

REMINDER: My Deadwood 2018 Dates

Ever thought about taking a trip to the real towns of Deadwood and Lead in South Dakota to see the actual historic locations where I set my Deadwood Mystery Series? You can cruise the streets in search of Calamity Jane Realty, Doc’s office, and Aunt Zoe’s place. You can also see the real-life Deadwood Police Station, Deadwood Library, Historic Homestake Opera House, the Open Cut, and more actual buildings and places I use in my books.

I’ll be in Deadwood at the end of June (from June 28th through June 30th) for book signings, a special history talk on the lawn of the Historic Adams Houseand a fun fan party on Saturday evening with a special guest, mystery author Sandra Brannan (over 90 fans came to 2017’s fan party and we had a blast with goodie bags and a fully stocked cash bar).

Book your vacation now while there is plenty of room at the hotels!
