Local Book Launch Event for "Desperate Deeds"

Ever since the release two weeks ago of Desperate Deeds, my most recent Malone Mystery, I’ve been working hard to promote the book. You see, that’s what we authors of novels published by small presses have to do because our publishers don’t have the resources the big publishers do.

Most people think of the big names when the word “publishers” comes to mind and there are still a number of authors published by the big houses. However, most writers these days seek out small press publishers. Why? Because, without an agent, an almost impossible thing to get, the big houses won’t even look at a manuscript. As a result, there are many wonderful books published by small presses every year. I’m hoping you’ll consider my books among them.

So, in the interest of promoting my book, I’m hosting a local book launch event. I’ll be signing and selling copies of Desperate Deeds. If you’re in or around Cincinnati this coming Sunday, I hope you’ll stop by. I love to meet people who love to read! Here’s the information:
Higher Ground Coffee House
3721 Harrison Avenue

1-3 p.m.
Happy Reading!


  1. Pat,

    This is so true! You can write a wonderful book but no one will know about it unless you promote the book yourself or are fortunate enough to be picked up by one of the big six publishers who have large distribution and publicity departments. Wishing you much success in getting the word out.

  2. I wish I could be there. The very best to you on this new launch.

    1. Lesley,
      Thanks! I wish you could be there too!
