Assassin’s Code Book Launch Party

Another fun book event.
I picked up my copy of New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry’s new Joe Ledger novel: Assassin’s Code last night at the book launch party at the Doylestown Bookshop. And I can’t wait to start reading.
Once again I’m impressed with another excellent independent bookstore. The Doylestown Bookshop was hopping last night, as customers perused its interesting and eclectic selection of merchandise, as was Doylestown itself. I never realized what wonderful atmosphere the town possessed at night with its Victorian architecture lit by the glow of streetlamps, inviting restaurants, and retail shops. It felt like a mini-vacation attending Jonathan’s book launch party.
Of course it is always a pleasure to meet up with Jonathan, not only is he a talented author, but he is truly a great guy.
I’ve been looking forward to book number 4 in the Joe Ledger series, and of course I’ve been keeping busy reading Dead of Night, another of Jonathan’s books while I waited for Assassin’s Code, and wow, if you want to read a truly haunting zombie book, then pick up Dead of Night.
As always, the artwork on the cover of Assassin’s Code is fantastic, and it made a spectacular cake. It’s awesome to live in a time when covers can be reproduced in sugar with photographic quality. Check out the picture.
One of the great joys of writing that I didn’t anticipate is meeting other authors and watching as their careers grow. I expect many more great tales from this master story teller.

Check out Jonathan at:
