Wanna win a signed copy of Folsom’s 93? Head on over to Goodreads and enter your info by the end of Sunday, August 7.
Check out my interview with Dan Zupansky of True Murder podcast where I discuss Folsom’s 93. You’ll hear that my brain cut out quite a bit and that my favorite words are “um” and “and.” Regardless, it was fun and it’s a great podcast if you like true crime.
Check out my interview with Justice For All radio show where I get to talk all about Folsom’s 93. I had a great time chatting with host, George Yates.
I wanted to share this colorized picture of William M. Gray, Folsom’s 22nd execution. My son has been playing around with Photoshop, and this one particular shot has always stood out to him, so he wanted to see what he could do with it. Given the information surrounding Gray’s case, I’m not entirely convinced he committed the crime for which he hanged. I’ll leave you with his last words.
” . . . there could be no God, else an innocent man would not be hanged.”
For those of you in the area (and needing to spend those B&N gift cards you get for Christmas) . . . I’ll be signing copies of Folsom’s 93 at Barnes & Noble at Centerra in Loveland, CO on January 4, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. to 6 p.m. Come by and chat with me—nothing’s worse than a lonely author sitting all by themselves at a table with no one to talk to. (My family can only take so much before they get bored and find something else to do). Hope to see you there!
Fellow history author and researcher-extraordinaire, J’aime Rubio took the time to review Folsom’s 93. What did she have to say? Check it out HERE. While you’re at it, I encourage you to stick around and read some of her fascinating articles on mystery, murder and mayhem. You may recall I reviewed her book, Behind the Walls: A Historical Expose of The Preston School of Industry, an intriguing investigation into the murderous past of one of California’s famous reform schools. A great read.
I’m excited to announce I’ll be doing a presentation and signing at BookBar in Denver at 7:30 p.m. on NOVEMBER 16. Located at 4280 Tennyson St., BookBar, an independent bookseller that is also a wine bar. Books and wine? Yes, please! If you’re in the area, I hope you can stop by; I’d love to see you there.
Just wanted to pass along a link to Novel Rocket, where I discuss research, mug shots and vegan food.
