Here’s a video of a recent talk I gave as part of the Meet the Authors series at the Alma Public Library. The Howdunit of a Whodunit covers the process I used to write and publish my first mystery novel, Dangerous Habits.

There’s actually a PowerPoint presentation going on while I’m talking, which is why I keep looking rather expectantly to the left. Because filming was spur-of-the-moment on a phone, it only captured me talking, and not the really awesome slides that my talented friends Nancy and Dale Beach put together for me.

The video is courtesy of my sister Barb, who insisted on filming the talk, even as I told her not to. Little sisters. Can’t live with them, can’t kill them.

I hope you find some helpful information if you’re thinking about publishing your own book, or if you’re just a little curious about how it’s done.
