A quick newsletter today, as I have a busy couple of weeks coming up, with several events I’m doing and a trip to the University of Wyoming for orientation for us and our daughter Dakota. All to get her and us ready for her move to college in the fall.
I first wanted to give a big shout-out to author Maggie King, as she posted a short piece I wrote, The Birth of a Private Eye. Stop by her website and read about the thought process that went into the creation of my protagonist PI Jarvis Mann. If you enjoyed the post leave a comment. While there check out the rest of her website, as there are other authors who have written interesting pieces about themselves and learn more about Maggie and her books.
Those events I mentioned I’m attending, where I will be selling my books are coming up over the next two weeks. I will be at Skyline Park at 16th and Arapahoe Street in downtown Denver on June 2nd from 11AM-7PM for the Urban Market. This will be the first outdoor vendor event of the year, and it should be busy, as there is the Heart Walk in the morning at Mile High Stadium, and the Dodgers are in town playing the Rockies in the early evening. So there should be lots of people converging on LoDo that day.
Then on June 3rd, I will be at Central Park in Boulder from 11AM-5PM for the outdoor Boulder Market. The weather forecast for both days looks fabulous, which should provide large crowds and make for a fun time meeting people to expose them to my books. If you will be in the area, be sure to stop on by my table and say hi! I will be wearing my Jarvis Mann PI t-shirt and a big smile!
Then on June 9th, I will be in Deadwood South Dakota for the Wild Deadwood Reads Author Event being held at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Holiday Inn Resort. The author book signing runs from 10AM to 2PM. There is a breakfast beforehand at the hotel that I will be attending, as well as an author meet and greet on June 7th at the hotel. If you’ve never been to Deadwood, it’s an old west mining town with casinos and gaming halls. The Black Hills area of South Dakota is one of our favorite places to travel to, with beautiful scenery and lots of wonderful attractions to visit. I still have two tickets to give away for the author signing event. If anyone is interested be sure to email me right away to get your name in the hat for the drawing.
I’m participating in another Instafreebie giveaway of my first Jarvis Mann PI novel, Tracking A Shadow. Here is a recent review:
Jarvis Mann comes off somewhere between Sam Spade without inhibitions and Miami Vice gone rogue. Weir’s private detective enjoys his vices but treads cautiously once he realizes he’s been led by his baser instincts. With this new case, Mann has his work cut out for him, unraveling a mystery within a mystery and trying to figure out whose side will leave him the least damaged both physically and reputationally. The lady is not what she seems is truth indeed, and intriguing twists keep the pace chugging right along-Lisa J. Lickel
You can download the book here along with other free thriller, mystery, and suspense books. This giveaway runs from now until June 4th.
Wonderful 5 star reviews keep coming in for my latest novel The Front Range Butcher:
Absolutely one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. Mr Weir has done it again. I would highly recommend this book-Cherie
Another amazing book by R Weir! The storytelling was perfect and it really kept me on my toes. The characters are crazy, interesting and plentiful as always. I was taken away on this journey with Jarvis almost from the beginning. His sleuthing mind draws me in and I want him to figure this out as much as he does-Lisa Helmick
Thanks again for your interest in my newsletter to learn more about me. The next two months will be quite busy for me, with more events in July. But I’m looking forward to a fun summer getting out and talking to lots of book readers hungry for new adventures. Take care and keep those pages turning!!
