I was sent a link by a friend. It was a video showing the cruelty of Iam's to dogs, made by a Peta undercover member who was sent to spy on Iam's and get the inside scoop of their cruelty to animals and the unnecessary testing. The video is disturbing.
They force feed dogs vegetable oil by cramming a tube down their throats, (why???) cut muscle from their thighs (another why???) and throw them on a cold, concrete floor, and stack them in cages for 23 1/2…Continue

I was surfing the web, one link carrying me off to another, randomly reading when I came across the "How To Write A Synopsis" plight. Yes, you read that right. "Plight."
I can assure, I spent two or more, cups of morning coffee on getting wrapped up in that subject, jumping from one article to another.
And then, I discovered something. It hit me, actually the caffine probably kicked in and turned on the old brain, some articles are conflicting. Yes, we have the majority…Continue

Hello to all. Let me introduce myself to everyone, although I'm not in the classification of most here. I'm a newbie and heard about crimespace through the Short Mystery Fiction Society, and glad I did. This is a great idea for networking and blogging, let alone the invaluable association of like-minded writers.

Glad you popped in!
Thanks for the warm welcome. The pooch on the cover is not mine, but is actually from England! We've been given permission to use her photo and have devoted a page of the book to Irish Wolfhound rescue groups. (My dog, Clio, is more than a tad miffed that she's not the star of the book.)
I too love Tony Shalhoub and Monk. As you note, it's the ability to use humor to support the storyline that is so impressive. And with just a slightly awkward segue :-) I will point out that "Murder Off the Books" has a story to "die for," characters you'll love, and as Kathryn Wall says, "humor sparkles on every page." I think you'll like it.
I too have a mystery in the freezer. I like the bones of it - and it taught me a lot about plotting, dialogue, character development. Maybe it will sell someday.
Thanks again for the welcome - Evelyn (please visit my web site, www.evelyndavid.com for a sneak peek of the book)
BTW- when I come to a meeting, don't tell anyone I have a Longhorn decal on my car (I plan to park away and walk-hehe) I surely don't want to alienate anyone on my first visit!
Look forward to meeting you ;)
I'll look forward to seeing you at the conference and hope you can make some of the Brazos Writers meetings. Personally, I get more out of the meeting-after-the-meeting on the patio at Ozona, but that's just me. I won't hold it against you that you think of Earl as king. C'mon, that hat?
