Chris - I'm about 2/3rds of the way through DON'T MURDER YOUR MYSTERY and I'm definitely getting my money's worth. I'm a Wisconsinite - do you have any workshops scheduled in the midwest in the next six months?

Thanks, Chris, for taking the time to respond! You can see that I am not any quicker myself. Hope that the traveling is reaping rewards. Have a great month.

Hello Chris,

I am going to plan to be there. I have been recuperating from surgery so I am hoping to feel up to attending. Thank you for letting me know of your event.

Positively my pleasure!
It's the best of the bunch. I pour over it! It's been helping me so much with revision. My scenes have become better--the writing better, I can't rave enough!!!!!!!!!

I've heard such great things about your work. I'd love to meet you in person. Will you be at Bouchercon this year?

Thank you so much for the invite.
I can't rave enough about your book!
I've been reading two advice books a week since I started to revise and I have a shelf full now and yours, Miss Roerden, is the absolute best.

Rick:
I've no idea how long I've neglected to check my "add friends" button. Traveling lots this summer; 9500+ miles since late April, doing my workshops on voice. Please send URL; I had trouble locating your site.
Warm wishes,
Chris

Hi Lee:
I thought I'd already done the adding-friend thing but these social networking mechanisms perplex me. I value you as a friend, of course, and apologize if I've let the mechanics go foor a while. We've both been busy touring--and I'm still living with the vivid images of the San Gabriel foothills ever-present wherever I went in the L.A. area. Did 4 packed workshops and had fun. All best wishes,
Chris

Hi there, just saw your 'invite' and thought we'd done the formalities a while ago. I do tend to lose track of things electronic, though. Sorry. Just back from Killer Nashville, and though that took me once again through the impressive Smoky Mountains, I'm still missing California's San Gabriel foothills, ever-present throughout my travels in the greater Los Angeles area.

Thanks for your comments on North Carolina. Looks like I'm about to be laid off at work, so I'll be seriously scoping out new jobs in other states soon. I hope you enjoy Killer Nashville. I am going to check out your "Don't Sabotage Your Submission" book since you seem to have quite a lot of valuable experience. "Don't Murder Your Mystery" will be on my Christmas list this year. Take care. Dawn

You're quite welcome . . . I'm not certain but you might be quite right re: economical writing from the short story writer. Oh! Noticed your most recent book on writing --- can't wait to read it. Cheers ~ A

Thanks for your good words about Don't Murder Your Mystery. Glad to learn that you're outlining a novel. Do you think writers with short story background do a better job of creating tight scenes than writers who start with the novel form? >>

Thanks for letting me know, Chris. Much appreciated. It's always nice when Shards gets a mention here or there, since the book's been out of print for so long. Good luck with the work.

Dear Chris,
I'm beginning DON'T MURDER YOUR MYSTERY. Invaluable! Thanks for a great writers' tool. Cheers - A. F. Waddell

Chris,
I'm a fellow Guppy. Finally reading DON'T MURDER YOUR MYSTERY. Love your advice. Finally some specifics to improve my writing. Now I'm anxious to rework my novel.
Thanks, Laura

Hello Chris,

i attended an editing workshop you were giving in Cary, NC. It was one of the best I have ever attended. The knowledge was invaluable. When I saw you were a member here, I wanted to drop a line and say hello. So greetings to you. I am also looking forward to your next book!

There used to be a sign at the Durham City limit announcing the city as Diet Capital of the World. I think the sign is now gone, but the name stuck! It originated from the fact that Durham is home to multiple residential diet communities.

Hi Chris! I'm using your book as a resource for editing my second mystery. DON'T MURDER YOUR MYSTERY is fabulous! Kathryn

Chris, I posted on my blog, on my Crimespace blog, and I'm about to post it on my Book Place blog. Good luck! I hope you get some great submissions.

Chris! Rumor has it you won the Agatha for Best Nonfiction for Don't Murder Your Mystery. Congratulations! And, thank you for allowing me to review it. Great book, and well deserving.
