"This is more of a comment than me committing to an answer, but I do believe that audience factor is important. That being said, as a new author with only one title published and another on the way, I have some problem drawing that audience line. I…"
"Sunny, I blog, but I haven't yet posted to most of my sites when I blog to let people know- I mainly post the link on Twitter and Facebook, and then usually I see a few book sales. I need your color coded system, which I don't have and…"

I hear you're going to see our publisher, Billie Johnson, in New Orleans this week. She needs to escape the snow. Congrats on the Superbowl win. Party on!"
I am a former New Orleans prosecutor and a current appellate public defender. My first novel, Gumbo Justice, was released June, 2009, by Oak Tree Press and is now available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble online. The book is part of the Crescent City Mystery Series. The second, Jambalaya Justice, was published in 2011. I am currently working on the third, Chocolate City Justice.
Stephanie Plum series, Lucas Davenport series; fiction and non-fiction books about serial killers. Any kind of mystery, thriller, suspense.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
NCIS, Revolution, Covert Affairs, Burn Notice, Law and Order, all of them, Criminal Minds, reruns of Wings and the Nanny. For movies, The Godfather, Serenity, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Dirty Dancing, While You Were Sleeping, the Sixth Sense.
I should have worried about Belize less and Cozumel more: free tequila tasting, frisky men!
Denny, Jack & I got together later with the travel agent who pulled together the trip and pitched the idea of a mystery cruise. I came up with the title: Murder On the High Seas: A Cruise To Die For.
I heard today that the travel agent can pull it together by next fall. 7 days sailing the Mexican Riviera, leaving from Los Angeles, Carnival Splendour seems the probable choice, rates are approx. $350 inside cabin, $550 balcony.
You can see what we're talking about at http://www.carnival.com/cms/fun/ships/carnival_splendor/default.aspx?shipCode=SL http://www.carnival.com/cms/fun/destination/Mexico/itinerariesMR.aspx?subRegionCode=MR&sort=3
I'm suppose to get together with my cohorts in crime and come up with panels and programs so we know how many meeting rooms to reserve. Any ideas?
Is this too soon for anyone to plan? There wouldn't be any extra fees for the conference but we're going to try to negotiate with the ship to sell books. And there wouldn't be any silly rule about who's an author. In fact, I'd love to see small press publishers show up and show their wares!

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”
Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."
Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"
The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.
Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.
The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
Many thanks for your kind comments on my book. Very glad you liked it.
And congratulations on your book coming out soon. I'll definitely order a copy.
How are things in New Orleans, one of my favorite cities? I haven't visited since Katrina but have been there on three occasions so I guess I'm an "educated tourist," meaning the further I get from Bourbon Street, the more interesting things I come across.
I like the Web site you've set up. I should look into getting one started myself. Are those expensive to get up and runing? Time consuming?
