Hi Barbara.
I didn´t know you also wrote crime fiction. I just "Amazoned" On Edge. It sounds really promising though I can be a real chicken when it comes to crime against children :)
Good luck with your new one.

So if thrillers outsell literary fiction, then clearly that's what readers prefer. Yet, newspaper reviewers seem to cover a much higher ratio of literary novels to thrillers. Doesn't seem quite right.

oops, I didn't even notice you had Blood of Paradise up there on your top ten - we truly are soul sisters. Also Citizen Vince and Denise Mina. I'll have to look for the others now. - Sophie

Hi Barbara - Crazy School is GREAT! My husband and I both loved it. PS I picked up Homicide 69 on your recommendation. I think we share reading tastes. Lately I've been reading Daniel Woodrell - what are you up to?

Barbara, Mary Saums and I are members of the same SinC-chapter, but we're so far not personally acquainted. I enjoy her writing, though! Thanks for being my friend!

I heard Cornelia read the beginning of The Crazy School at Litquake...prepare for your socks to be knocked off.

Maybe you've read and know Olen Steinhauer's books but I just finished Victory Square, last in his Eastern European country quarter - read Romania - amazing!

Barbara,
I'm working on a review and a line you used in a discussion here a while ago fit perfectly. I'm borrowing it, but giving you credit for it. Below is the paragraph in question. Please let me know if you object. I haven't submitted the review yet.

Dana

So when I started Greg Rucka’s Patriot Acts, my first thought was, “Oh, this is one of those books.” (Apologies to fellow reviewer Barbara Fister for borrowing her line.)

Barbara,
I'm new to the world of publishing. I learn something new everyday on how to promote my books. (And believe me, it's very hard for a new author to get her/his name "out there.") Pardon my naivete, but what is the"LibraryThing" you're referring to? Could I get my books listed and exposed through its catalog?

Hi Barbara, thanks for the comment. And I loved your take on A Field of Darkness. I can promise there aren't any debutantes or fortunes to speak of in The Crazy School (well, except Madeline, but it never gets mentioned).

Hi Barbara, Thanks for inviting me -- very interesting discussions. I could spend all day here, but then I wouldn't write. Which some would say wouldn't be a bad thing, but I'd find frustrating.

Re the discussion you started earlier this month, Not Shaken, Not Stirred, No Twist. I just got one of 'those' books to review. It's a bummer, because it's from a respected and well-liked author, but aside from the usual demented serial killer stuff mentioned, this one has enough "Marketing 101" elements added to make the entire read painful.

Just wanted to let you know you're not the only one who gets that feeling when you open one of those.

Hi,
Have to get over to PDD archives to check out your guest blog. I just wrote one for them. Re Tanzania, went there for a Habitat trip in 06 and loved the little village we built in. The primary school has no electricity, no water, 18 teachers for over 1000 students and until this past August no library. My husband and I (and some friends) raised the money to build a library this past spring and the structure has just been finished. Currently installing bookshelves, furniture and solar panels and compiling booklist. We return to Tanzania in November for dedication. Pix on my website www.rosemaryharris.com Thanks for asking!

Thanks for the kind comments about my panel in Madison. But that panel did not go the way I wanted it when it started off with the first person talking way to long about something off topic. I should have stopped her but she is such a good friend I hated to do it. The rest was OK (just OK). I am taking a whack at moderating again in Alaska so if you are heading to Bcon and want to hear about film and book discussions, check ours out.

Hey Barbara,

thanks for the invite...you got to talk Idradason? I love his books?

Hello Barbara,

I would just like to tell you that I found "When we were orphened" wonderful.

Thank you so much, Barbara for that reply. I do appreciate it. I'll see what I can find out.
