You asked for a chart to show Legacy vs Indie royalties. I sent it to your email account. I hope you can use it.

If you did not receive it, please let me know here.

I finished "Shot of Tequila" last week. I found it a very interesting read. Not to ruin it for other readers, but the ending surprised me.

Thanks for sharing your work, and I don't have to wish you success, but have some more.

Links in blogs discussing the Amazon/Macmillan controversy led me back to your blog. Lucky me. You and John Scalzi summed up the situation as well as anyone. My thoughts about publishing in general have been evolving, and your writing is making me re-think several things, and discard a few ideas that no longer have currency. Thank you for that.

While I was there I read through your posts for the past month or so. There's a string of three (Luck You, What I Know, and Resolutions) that aren't just informative, but inspiring. I debate from time to time whether I want to put up with what writers seem destined to put up with nowadays; reading these posts has me revved up again.

Thanks again.

Hey JA,
Great new website, but you need more stuff about your latest Jack Daniels thriller, Fuzzy Navel!

Hi, Joe. I'm new to CrimeSpace and was happy to see you here. I was part of the gang (along with Rebecca Drake) that took you out to dinner at Primanti's in Pittsburgh a while back.

Nice to see a familiar face. Loved your interview with Tess Gerritssen.

Hey Joe,as always innovative and ahead of the curve, and I am not talking about your stomach showing up around a corner before the rest of you, but rather I am speaking of ADs on your freebie E-books. I want an ad right there, my man. You are the man! Need details. Size matter? Cover Art OK, I would imagine. Photo of me and Pongo, OK? etc.
