Preparing for Japan – and a Ninja’s Daughter Signing!

A little less than a month from today, I return to Japan!

I’m heading over to teach at the Japan Writers’ Conference (held at Tokushima University, October 28-29, 2016 – registration and attendance information here) and then for seventeen days of research on the next few Hiro Hattori novels.

Sadly, I won’t get back to Hiroshima Prefecture, so I won’t be able to enjoy Itsukushima’s Great Torii:


But I do have many other adventures planned, and I’m looking forward to sharing them on the blog (and Facebook, and Twitter, and Instagram) both during the trip and after my return.

Of more immediate importance: I’ll be at the BARNES & NOBLE Booksellers in Birdcage Center in Citrust Heights TOMORROW: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2016, at 1pm for a reading and signing of THE NINJA’S DAUGHTER. 

I hope you’ll join me there!
