What's a Good Read Worth? 99 Cents?

   I'm primarily an author, but I enjoy working in business, too. My husband and I buy closeouts from major U.S. manufacturers and resell them to discount stores. When the dollar stores gained popularity years back, U.S. manufacturers couldn’t compete with the off-brand imitations being sold for a dollar. Americans fell in love with dollar items, but it didn’t take long for people to notice that, not only was the price cheap, so…See More

Delving into Darkness - It's a Good Thing

At a recent author event, an audience member asked me how I keep upbeat when most of my writing revolves around troubled souls who get into trouble.  The most obvious answers come to mind. I have a husband who pulls me away from the computer. I have kids to attend to. I have a great group of friends to have fun with. The most honest answer, however, comes from deep within. Simply put: I don't think delving into darkness is a bad thing. Have you ever met someone who you know instinctively to…See More

Thanks, Laurie, for the friendship!  And Congrats on your book being published!

Here's hoping that sales and reviews will be 'way up there!  So much work, I'm sure, on your part has put your name on bookstore shelves -- that's the kind of "shelving" that you celebrate! 

Feel good about yourself, and thanks again!

 I'm planning a Spring 2012 release of the sequel.  I also have a sci-fi novella out: Schrodinger's Cat

Hi Laurie,

Welcome to Crime Space. I'm also new on this site as well, but you must know that. Relative to the comments about your writing style - I've had some folks who have read my book try to judge me by my novel(s). However, they know me much better than that...or do they?

Seriously, we don't have to be murderers to write about them...it just takes some imagination. Keep going, keep going and they will be the first to display your autograph.

Regards, and thanks for making me a friend.

Dick

Northridge, yes. Home of the big '94 earthquake (it's only claim to fame -- that and the gourmet food truck fest that happens every weds and friday evenings near CSUN -- too fun!)

Depending on traffic, Northridge is an easy enough drive to Pomona. It just depends on how often the cultural writers group will meet.

I will be attending Left Coast Crime and would love to meet my fellow crime/mystery/psycho-thriller writers.

Laurie,

Northridge, huh? Will you be attending Left Coast Crime in Sacramento next year?

 

There's a college professor in Pomona pulling together a cultural writers group. Not sure how far that is from you. Northridge is LA area--right?
