Great Review of THE GATEKEEPER from the IMBA

Here's the review, and a link to it:

Who better to pick the best mystery books of the month than the people who run mystery bookstores?



Each month, the 40-odd quirky stores that make up IMBA submit their favorite recent reads to a rotating editor who then… Continue

Stephen King, Dan Brown as Howard Hughes, and missed opportunities...

Not too long ago I was watching a primetime television show, as I am wont to do. And lo and behold, there was a commercial for the next Stephen King novel. It contained all of the bells and whistles of a movie trailer, and made those book trailers put together by authors on their own dime (mine, for instance) look woefully inadequate in comparison.



Which got me thinking: what an enormous wasted opportunity...read the rest… Continue

Title Trauma

Share the laughter and tears of my recent title search here



Excerpt: A few weeks ago my new editor (which bears discussion in a later post, the revolving door aspect to the editor/author relationship these days) announced that she no longer liked the title for my next book.

Litcrawl 2007: Murder, Mayhem, and F-Bombs

Note: I initially wrote this for my local MWA newsletter, and it seemed to go over well so I'm re-posting it here..my alternate title is "Cornelia Read's Pottymouth." Read on to discover why...

I was running late as usual, although in my defense this wasn’t entirely my fault. My husband was out of town, and the babysitter was held up a half-hour in traffic. Then the cab never arrived, so I drove to the

Mission, praying to the gods of street parking after three…
