I'm excited! Yesterday I signed a contract for my second book in The Third Eye mystery/suspense series entitled DEADLY SINS - DEADLY SECRETS. The release date for the book is set for Nov. 1, 2007.

Plus, I received a review on the first book this week -- my first one -- so I feel like a kid with a new toy. The review ended with a marvelous blurb:

"Author Sylvia Dickey Smith has skillfully woven a story of a woman driven to begin a new life on her own with a chilling tale of mystery and suspense. You’ll find yourself drawn to Sid Smart and cheering for her to succeed against past and present obstacles all the way to the knuckle-whitening climax. You’ll also find yourself, like me, wanting to see more of Sid in future novels." by Earl Staggs, Author/Book Reviewer.

I spent this last week in Orange, the setting of the series, working to create a buzz. Everyone seems thrilled to have a mystery series set in their town. I think this is the first time that has happened. And after the devastation wrought by Rita a couple of years ago, the town is seeing a revival of regrowth. So--both those combined has sparked new life in the area. It is indeed exciting!

Hey there Sylvia! Can you believe I just found the Ning network, and I just joined the Crimespace group? Pop on over to my personal page and you'll see I've set up Dance on His Grave as my very first book/author of the month, and I've even got the Dreamview for Dance on the page!
I'm glad to join you as a part of Crimespace -
