Hey Ronald, Thanks for reaching out - always nice to meet another mystery writer and especially from east bay. I rarely log onto crimespace but feel free to email me if you have any booksignings coming up or if there are any mystery-related events in the bay area - my email is, and my website if you're interested is  I'm finally getting a big block of time today (Sunday) to work on my new thriller - hope you're also having a productive writing weekend.  Take care, Lisa

Thanks! I self-published on Lulu. Maybe it's the entrepreneur in me, but I like the idea of having control over the publishing cycle. And, at least according to what I've heard, you're on your own for marketing anyway.
