Today at 1 p.m. is the Books & Co. @ The Greene signing for the second stop on the Ohio leg of the PRINT THE LEGEND tour. Copies of the limited edition chapbook, "Colt," containing the short story in which Hector get's his iconic Peacemaker will be available. And, in a rare, one-time-only appearance, this collector's item's young illustrators will be available to sign their Day-of-the Dead-style work.

Wednesday night brought the show to Foul Play bookstore in Westerville, OH, where seats were scarce and the questions and readers a real delight. Thanks to everyone who packed the store this past Wednesday night.

Also, today I'm guest-blogging at Lesa's Book Critiques.

An interview conducted by the very sharp Keith Rawson during my visit to Arizona is now available in two parts here and here.

Mystery Scene has weighed in on PRINT THE LEGEND, noting, “McDonald skillfully and ingeniously mixes fact with fiction…McDonald’s background as a journalist and crime fiction critic helps him to piece together an intriguing literary thriller.”

Spinetingler's take on PRINT here.

Next week it's Ann Arbor, MI, and Aunt Agatha's for a March 20 signing at 1:30 p.m.


  1. Just steer those illustrators away from surrealism.

  2. tends more toward impressionism, the other Day of the Dead folk art...but they signed like pros today...the rarest of the collectible "Colts."
