“A Touch of Mystery” at Basically Books, Hilo, HI

A Touch of Mystery featured four local authors reading from their novels: Daughters of Fire by Tom Peek (red shirt); After Dawn by Justina Taft (green dress); A Halo For Red Betsy and The Cheongsam Bombshell by Al McDermid (navy shirt); and The Musubi Murder by Frankie Bow (that’s me in the white Island Confidential t-shirt). Thanks to Christine Reed (orange scarf) of Basically Books for hosting this event!

Tom read a truly harrowing murder scene from Daughters of Fire; Justina shared a sensuous dream sequence from After Dawn; and Al introduced us to a real tough dame, a morphine-addicted former Navy nurse from A Halo for Red Betsy

I read from Chapter 4 of The Musubi Murder,  where Professor Molly Barda and her reporter friend Pat Flanagan are exploring the decrepit Hanohano Hotel (which is totally not modeled on any real life place whatsoever, no sirree).

Fortunately the book order came in just in time–the morning of the event!

One lucky winner took home a Mahina State University t-shirt. Mahina State University: “Where Your Future Begins Tomorrow.” Not available in stores!

Basically Books is the kind of gathering place any community is lucky to have. They specialize in Hawaiian books, but they also sell bags, games, toys, and (of course) umbrellas. Hilo gets up to 200 inches of rain per year.

The umbrellas are on the ceiling.

This weekend Basically Books is celebrating their 30th anniversary with live music from Java Jive, cookies, goodies, and prizes.

Next up, I’ll be reading from my latest, The Case of the Defunct Adjunct, on December 18 (tentative). Stay tuned!
