Recently heard from my editor, who presumably heard it from someone else at St Martin's, who probably heard it from a friend who has a friend who works at Library Journal, that A Treasury of Regrets was recently picked as one of the top five mystery novels of 2007 by LJ. I don't think this list goes to press until the end of the year, but that's what I'm told.
Now I'm sure that a terrible mistake has been made here, but until they call me to tell me that it was all, in fact, a vile rumor, I'm enjoying the moment. (So please give Treasury a try!)
And hey, I'm finally getting back to Paris again, after three years, to do some location research. Things are looking up!
