It has been a slow year in Seattle for author tours. 2011 saw so many high-profile books publish and all of those writers visited the Emerald City. It meant book signings and event questions. It meant excitement for fans who traveled all over the Pacific Northwest to see their favorite authors.
It also meant the chance for me to videotape those visits so others around the world could enjoy them.
Kat Richardson is no stranger to Seattle. She lives nearby and has set some scenes of her Greywalker series in Seattle and Portland. Kat visited the University Bookstore in Seattle, WA last week to discuss her new book, Seawitch, and read an excerpt from it!
Here is a bit more about Seawitch:
Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And she’s discovering that her new abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases.
A quarter century ago, the Seawitch cruised away from her dock and disappeared with everyone on board. Now, the boat has mysteriously returned to her old berth in Seattle and the insurance company has hired Harper to find out what happened.
But Harper is not the only one investigating. Seattle Police Detective Rey Solis is a good cop, albeit one who isn’t comfortable with the creepy cases that always seem to end up in Harper’s lap. As they explore the abandoned vessel, Harper and Solis discover a cabin containing symbols drawn in human blood, revealing the ghost ship’s grave history.
As Solis focuses on the possible murder of a passenger’s wife, Harper’s investigation leads her to a powerful being who may be responsible for the disappearance of the Seawitch’s passengers and crew. And while their searches lead Harper and Solis in different directions, they will need to put aside their differences to solve a deadly mystery twenty-five years in the making…
