Murder By the Book yesterday. Very fun. In the past, when I was writing my Yellow Rose mysteries I always sent a bouquet of yellow roses to the store and the vase of flowers would sit at the signing table next to me. Then, my cousin told me about a New York state wine called "Abby Rose." For those who don't know, she's the heroine of the Yellow Rose books. I took a bottle of that wine to a signing or two at the store.
As I considered what to do for the cat series, I realized that the last couple times, I'd taken nothing but bookmarks to offer to those in attendance. It's not like my cats would be welcome. There is a darling resident dog in the store, after all, and who knows what chaos would reign. But then it dawned on me. Wine again! Three main character cats named after wine. What could be better?
Will chablis, like vampires, make a comeback? Will anyone care? Or is the wine I used to drink gone, gone, gone?
