2011 is already well into its 4th quarter, which makes us realize what they say is true:

time flies when we’re having fun!

And we are thankful for that.

So this month, it is time to give our thanks to all of you who supported us one way or another, either by purchasing a book, attending a book signing or a reading with Delphine Pontvieux, choosing her novel for your next book club meeting, or just passing on the word about ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest, Pintxatu, Amsterdamned if you do and/or American Wasteland to your friends.

We have several events planned throughout the month which are taking place either right here on the world wide web or in Chicago, with more to be added as they get confirmed, so read on and mark your calendars!
