"Yeah - kind of what I thought at the time! :-)"

Debbie Bennett replied to John Pappan's discussion How do YOU manufacture a story title?
"I'm curious about Eden. Have you had any problems? I know two other authors who have books with that title and both received emails from a third author claiming the title was "his" and he would sue them if they didn't change…"

Debbie Bennett replied to Tom Greer's discussion Crime Readers Here Who Are Also Crime Writers
"I still read my stuff all the time. If I have a spare five minutes, I grab a paperback, open it at random and read - even though I could probably recite it blindfold now!"

Debbie Bennett replied to John Pappan's discussion How do YOU manufacture a story title?
"I agree - the title needs at least a loose association. Mine all follow a theme which help build the series brand too. Too often crime writers seem to think as long as they include the word dead in the title, then that's OK and the rest…"

Debbie Bennett replied to Tom Greer's discussion Crime Readers Here Who Are Also Crime Writers
"Me. I started out reading and writing fantasy - but when I switched to crime and thriller territory, everything suddenly "clicked" and I felt that I'd found my voice. Plus I've worked in law enforcement my whole career, which…"

Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion The Writing Process
"Funny, isn't it? Not knowing the ending until the hero does is the bit I love! That's what makes it fun to write for me."

Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion The Writing Process
"Fortunately I've been here enough times that I trust my subconscious will come up with the goods sooner or later. I just need to have faith!"

Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion The Writing Process
"I'm a complete pantser. That's the best bit - when it just seems to fall out onto the screen while bypassing my conscious brain entirely. When I'm living and breathing the story and can't think about anything else. I must be hell…"

Debbie Bennett replied to I. J. Parker's discussion Crossing the genre lines.
"Me too. I grew up on the sf classics - Wyndham and Heinlein. Spent many years involved in the fantasy sub-culture and only moved more into crime recently."

Debbie Bennett replied to I. J. Parker's discussion Crossing the genre lines.
"Interesting comment. That's the reason I never use my name on my books - only initials! I do think a past is important though. It's the past that defines the present - that makes us who we are now. I read something recently - I really do…"

Debbie Bennett replied to I. J. Parker's discussion Crossing the genre lines.
"Personally I really hate the mystery/detective and paranormal crossover that everybody adores these days. Just reading a back cover and finding that the detective is a shapeshifter, or there's a demon involved somewhere makes me chuck the book…"

Debbie Bennett replied to David DeLee's discussion Create Space expanded distribution
"You can pick it up off a customised report. It doesn't tell you where it sold, but it does distinguish between an amazon sale and an expanded distribution sale - although that may be because all my amazon sales are from the UK site. No idea on…"

Debbie Bennett replied to dan petrosini's discussion Dialoque of immigrant
"Read Iain Rowan's One of Us for what I thought was a near-perfect portrayal of illegal immigrant Anna. Rowan has just the right voice, the lack of idioms and contractions and he doesn't let it slip for the entire novel. I was so impressed…"
