Today’s the Day: <i>Death Was the Other Woman</i>

I very seldom repost stuff from my personal blog here on my crimespace space, but this is a special day for me, so I’m making an exception. Today, as I said, is the day. And I’m happy.

The publication date of any book is a fairly arbitrary thing. And the fact is, in most cases, by the time the publication date rolls around, the book has already been in stores for a few days at least, online booksellers are already shipping it and so on. It only gets problematic when a book isn’t available by the publication date, since a lot of media and parties and stuff can be centered around the given date. But, fortunately (and while I touch wood) this has never happened to me.

Now all of that said, this day is the date Death Was the Other Woman was anointed with as a publication date and a lot of my own excitement has been focused on this date. Sometimes knowing better doesn’t help. Still, it’s fun to say: “today’s the day.”
And so here I am.

Today I’m guestblogging at Clea Simon’s blog, Cats & Crime & Rock & Roll. Clea is the author of Cries and Whiskers, the most recent of her very successful Theda Krakow mysteries. And on the publication date of that book last month, she guest blogged on my personal blog on a topic so controversial, it invited more comments than any I’d had there before.
So drop by and see me at Clea’s. My topic is not so controversial, but it will add to your knowledge of Kitty Pangborn’s world as well as perhaps (maybe slightly) to your knowledge of dogs.

A few days ago I guest blogged at Louise Penny’s blog. Louise is the author of The Cruelest Month and Still Life. You can still see that posting here.

And today, I submitted Death Was the Other Woman to the Page 69 test. The results of that are here and the proceedings are mentioned there.

If getting inside Kitty Pangborn’s world sounds like a fun thing to do, I guest blogged at Moments in Crime through Christmas week. Some of those postings fit the bill. You can see them archived here.
And around the time I was doing that, I blogged about guest blogging on The Rap Sheet.

The cover is stunning. I feel the need to buy it just to see what kind of story will go with that cover. I am a sucker for a dame with a gun and a guy wearing a fedora. How can you neat that?

Can't make the vancouver launch party, but I'm guessing the photos are great. The thirties produced a lot a gritty, human B&W photos. Faces you can look at and feel in touch with. They seem more real. Even the buildings -- the concrete and steel - feel more tangible in photos from that time. I don't know why exactly.
