The Death of a Friend - Excerpt.

I was too distraught to take in the details of the interview. I had become numb, dead to the world, irrelevant and bereft. I lived in a state of extreme suspension for the next few days. I pulled the phone from the wall, locked the door, closed the curtains, and left the apartment in darkness. I ate from cans, dry cereal chased with swigs of wine, beer and then vermouth and then vodka. I slept but did not dream. Then the taxi driver banged on my door, yelled that he was there to take me to a…

Hi Lyn, that is really an honor about BEATITUDE and, in my opinion, even more at what you're doing to help your library. I remember when Stephen King donated over a million dollars to the library in my hometown in Maine, and what a major difference it made to our community! It's sad that it's so needed, but you're doing something about it--that's awesome. I can't wait to read BEATITUDE and hope you'll keep us updated on the library's status. -Karen

Lyn, what fun! Jefferson isn't far from Longview, my home town. I hope you'll post pictures. Do you ever get to Lake Charles? Every now and then I venture into New Orleans. Do you know my friend Barbara Colley? She writes cozies for Kensington.

Thanks for the compliment. You're doing a wonderful thing, contributing for the Library. Where would we be without libraries? The books there are keys to the world.

Downloaded your info on agents, but what is the "LuLu" you mentioned? I'm kinda new at this.

Lyn,Thanks for the info. I'll try it.

I'm really impressed with your profile. I should be so lucky. I'm still looking for an agent, too. Got any good advice? Query letters somehow just don't make it.

You're welcome. I think everyone talks about their books to some extent. It's all about word of mouth, especially when there are readers and writers in the same place. You can always put your thoughts in the blog on this page. People will read it.
