Rose Rocks the House at Cover to Cover

Carolyn J. Rose has a fabulous time at her book launch at Cover to Cover Books.

Carolyn J. Rose launches her latest novel, Hemlock Lake at Cover to Cover Books, 1817 Main St, Vancouver, WA 98660. I think she just said, 'die somewhere and take a bow,' but I was eavesdropping and gulping very hot coffee, so I'm not completely sure.

Book purchasers snag a chance to chat with author Carolyn J. Rose.

Books are flying out of Cover to Cover as well as Cake being devoured.
Local Safeway store reproduced the book's cover on the celebration cake.

A guest conversation overheard. . .
"Are you from that area?"
"1805? No, I'm a little more current."

All this on coffee and punch. Now that we have experience in these things we're looking forward to the next book launch, a collaboration: Sometimes a Great Commotion.

Hemlock Lake with Cake! A deadly combination

Author Carolyn J. Rose
Meet author Carolyn J. Rose on Saturday, July 31st, 4:00-6:00 pm at Cover to Cover Books, 1817 Main St, Vancouver WA 98660. The open house celebrates the publication of Rose's new novel, Hemlock Lake. She will be on hand to sign books and chat about her Hemlock Lake journey.

From the book's press release: "The mystery, set in the Catskill Mountains, involves betrayal, revenge, love, loss, and redemption, set against the search for an arsonist and killer in a remote community."

Rose, who founded the Vancouver Writers' Mixers in 2006 and teaches a novel-writing boot camp through Clark College Continuing Education, will talk about the decision to write a book far different from the humorous mysteries, such as The Big Grabowski, that she's penned in the past with her husband Mike Nettleton and as solo projects. She will also discuss the book's journey to publication, and serve up Hemlock Lake cake to those who stop by.

Watch the book trailer: Hemlock Lake.
