"You might want to check out the Lola Cruz series by Melissa Bourbon Ramirez.  Very similar to Janet Evanovich, but not quite as over the top.  That Lola is Hispanic adds a different flavor to the genre."

Circalit Seeks Crime Stories for Agent Competition

I'm sure that many of you received this same request, but a UK-based group called Circalit contacted me to spread the word about their agent competition.

http://www.circalit.com/projects/competitions/crime

They are looking specifically for crime stories and the literary agency involved is A.P. Watt, which is apparently well-esteemed.  Publishers Weekly also reported on Circalit's latest competition.  I don't know…

e-publishing wars

Kindle-less and e-reader-less, I'm just starting to learn about electronic publishing, even though all of my novels are available as e-books.



I attended an e-publishing panel at our inaugural California Crime Writers Conference during the weekend of July 13-14 and it was fascinating. E-publisher Marci Baun, e-published pioneering author Marilyn Meredith, and Poisoned Pen acquiring editor Annette Rogers were all there to give their take on the future of digital books.

Thanks for the comment on my page. More there. I'm always very glad when you post in the "Forum". Had missed you. You have a new novel out, I see. Excellent. Love title and cover. Will keep an eye out.

Naomi, I love your new picture. You look gorgeous. And thanks for the comment on my site. I also hope that all is going well for you. I shall sign a contract for the next Akitada novel (already written) with Penguin soon. So we're limping along. Congratulations on the Japanese translation. I've been told that is hopeless for me. A German-American writing about 11th century Japan for the Japanese? It's probably considered blasphemous.
I did make a sale in Indonesia, though. :)
