Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event. Mailbox Monday has now returned to its permanent home where you can link to your MM post.
I got a very fun book that is perfect for summer reading!
Scene of the Climb by Kate Dyer-Seeley.
Dyer-Seeley calls this "a Pacific Northwest Mystery" and it is the first in a new series featuring freelance outdoor writer Meg Reed. The only thing is, Meg may have exaggerated her enthusiasm for outdoor adventures to land a job with Northwest Extreme magazine. Things only get worse when Meg, having heaved herself up a 2000-foot peak, sees a body falling past her. Now she has to survive her adventure and solve a murder mystery.
Stick this one in your backpack for a great weekend read. There is even a short appendix at the back with some travel and hiking ideas for a trip to the Columbia River Gorge.
Kate has a couple of events coming up this week for readers in the Portland area:
TUESDAY, JUNE 24, 3-5pm
Scene of the Climb Happy Hour at Deschutes Brewery in Portland, 210 NW 11th Ave.
Join us for a special book signing and happy hour at Meg’s favorite pub. Bring your copy of Scene of the Climb for Kate to sign. (You can buy a copy at many Portland/Vancouver-area bookstores.) Deschutes Brewery will be sampling some of Meg’s favorite beers, plus giving away some swag.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25, 7pm
