At last I heard from my agent that St Martin's has finally sent over the contract for two more Aristide Ravel mysteries. And now I have to write them. Yikes.
If you've read Game of Patience and/or A Treasury of Regrets, please send me encouragement as the prospect of starting all over again is fairly terrifying! How the heck do novels get written, anyway???
If you're already an Aristide fan, you can mark your calendars for spring 2009 (probably) for the next novel. Sigh. Yeah, it takes that long from first manuscript page to final product.
