I just got the world's shortest review

Or maybe not the world's shortest, exactly - I'm sure there have been shorter ones - but it's my shortest, by far. Three sentences, and one is a quote from moi. You can check it out here - however, since it's only three lines, I figure I may as well post it, so you don't have to make the extra click:

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!"

Book Synopsis:

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.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi Jennie, Is it too late to reply back to your invitation to be your friend from December of 2007? I'd love to ! How do we do this? I haven't been very good about keeping up here, but will in the future.

Jennie, I posted the blog on ITW also. Been too busy, but now I am home for a while, writing and reading, so you might get sick of hearing from me. Thanks for keeping up and the reply.

Hi Jennie
I keep seeing your face and reading your name. I thought it was time to get to know you.

That's part of the fun of the book festivals and mystery conferences: Getting to put a real face and voice to the cyber version.

Hi, Jennie!
Wanted to let you know that I met your friend Diana at the Festival of Mystery and told her you said "hello." It was so busy that I didn't get a chance to talk to her in depth, but I did get to introduce myself.

Hey, Jennie! I've just moved into the CrimeSpace neighborhood and am glad to see a few familiar faces!

I remember the lists getting pretty quiet even before the Amelia series finished up - guess we can just do the same discussions so many times before they get old. Sethos is doing okay - about five or six posts a week - but we are almost more a general book list now. We talk about what we are currently reading and things like that. I joined 4MA four years ago and that is a busy enough list that I don't really have a lot of time left for other lists - like you said, a lot of us have just found life is busy in a different way. This place is a bit easier - it can be as demanding overall as you want which is nice.
