I recently joined with several fellow authors--thank God someone invited me as I was beginning to feel a little like I had leprosy--on a blog we call Writers Plot: www.writersplot.typepad.com Recent self-serving posts of mine include such titles as There is No Off-Switch on the Crying Machine and Um, Officer ... I Swear I Didn't Do Anything. It's just the fun and the sometimes sad and lonely thoughts of a way-too-sensitive writer.

Greetings from Connemara! Plenty of Sweeneys on this side of the pond. I see we like the same BBC program(me)s.
Lov'd your last blog, BTW!
Thanks for the invite. Ha! I understand about the group blog thing but when you're pressed for time you may think differently!
Did I meet you at an MWA Symposium? Do you know me from the Guppies column I used to write for First Draft called "No Stone Unturned"? Or did you take one of those classes I used to do for Kiss of Death?
No matter. Good luck with your new promotion vehicle and next time you're awaiting a book, give me a heads-up and we can do a Q & A in my free, bi-monthly author's e-newsletter Soup'sOn. Lots of mystery writers have been in it: Susan McBride, and, oh, ...brain drain, but lots.
I've heard great things about it from Jeff Abbott.
I know exactly what you mean about being a reading groupie. I just spent the weekend with Don Winslow at the Sydney Writers Festival. Lots of hero worship going on. I'm really glad you like the books. THE NIGHT FERRY is out on July 10 in the US. I'm doing a bit of a tour, which includes Houston. Texas is obviously an awfully big place and Friendswood could be miles away. (It's a great name for a place, by the way. I wish I'd thought of it and put it in a book).
I'm happy to be among such a well read and obviously very sophisticated bunch. Keep finding time to write.
