We barely avoided Hurrican Ida and Roatan was literally "a wash" (rainy and no electricity). Loved Cozumel!
We got together later with the travel agent who pulled together the trip and pitched the idea of a mystery cruise. I came up with the title: Murder On the High Seas: A Cruise To Die For.
I heard today that the travel agent can pull it together by next fall. 7 days sailing the Mexican Riviera, leaving from Los Angeles, Carnival Splendour seems the probable choice, rates are approx. $350 inside cabin, $550 balcony.
You can see what we're talking about at
I'm suppose to get together with my cohorts in crime and come up with panels and programs so we know how many meeting rooms to reserve. Any ideas?
Is this too soon for anyone to plan? There wouldn't be any extra fees for the conference but we're going to try to negotiate with the ship to sell books. And there wouldn't be any silly rule about who's an author. In fact, I'd love to see small press publishers show up and show their wares!

I've been meaning to send you two a card, Mari -- meeting you and your husband was the highlight of the trip!! :) I miss you both, and you will be at the top of my list to email when we get back to LA. :)
I'm on a deadline with my book (gotta finish it this weekend) ... and getting ready for Bouchercon. But we'll connect up soon!
Thanks again for the friendship, support ... and being you! :)

Mari, I just found your incredibly sweet message (for some reason, my spam filter was seizing my Crimespace stuff) ... you are an ANGEL! :)

I am so looking forward to seeing you, and I'd love to have lunch with you, except for the fact that after Mysteries to Die For I'm scheduled for another signing in LA at The Mystery Book Store. :(

I'm bummed. But at least we'll get to hang out!! :) I'll bring you something extra special, too. :)

Take care, and I'm so glad we get to do a happy dance! :)

If I come out to LA in the future, I'll be sure to try to swing a visit with the LA Sisters in Crime. My husband's folks used to live in North Hollywood, but since they passed away, we haven't had as many reasons to visit.

Hi Mari,

that's good to know, we don't know many other couples that do it like this, we run a b and b and share childcare so I get time to write and he gets to work on his band.
At least when you spend this much time together you know you won't be one of those couples that only realise they don't like each other when they retire! Good luck with everything you're working on, Alison x

Hi Mari,

Thanks for the feedback, we had great fun making this and hope we'll find the budget to do another sometime, Alison x

Mari, I'm happy as a lobste4r swimming in wine that you introeuced me to Crime Space. These people are great! My one regret is that I can't read all ofr their books at once. I wonder if the doctors could give me "fly-eye" implants....

Nice to meet you. Thanks for adding me.

Mari, thank you. Hope to meet you in July.

Mari, I sent the bookstore a press pacakage, again, last week and I am going to call tomorrow, before leaving for SleuthFest, and see if I can get a signing. Will let you know. Hope to see you there, if I make it. Do you know Heidi? Give her a call in support, if you do.

Aw, shoot! I was hoping you would think it was me. Maybe I could have gotten by with it, except for the sunglasses.

Keep me in mind if you need a good fiction editor in the future. I have a great for fonts and layout, as well.

Just saying Hi
I am also employed full-time (as an editor), in addition to being a novelist. It makes me jealous of all these other writers who seem to have more time to network than I do.
Good luck with your writing.

Can't type though- apparently.
Or spel.......

Huge, groveling apologies.
I just saw your comment buried I on my page from Dec 31.
Not rude, just vague......
Just finished being a student again at ripe age of 52. Glad you like the tunes- I'm a bit slow, but can strill boogie.
BTW I'm the proud servant of 2 siamese/manx X cats

Thanks for the connection and I certainly hope things go well for you! I think some of us take our eyesight for granted. We probably take LOTS of things for granted, come to think of it. Take care,
