Just had the house painted. I'm talking, the downstairs was in shambles on Rosh Hashana Eve! Was too sick to sing at temple that night, but mustered up my old strength and sang in choir on Saturday. Of course, my place was spotless by that time! That night, I had 16 people over for dinner. How 'bout you and your wife?
Thanks for the good wishes about VIRGINS AND MARTYRS. Pub date is April 15, but the wait was eased somewhat when, earlier this week, I was informed that the April 1 issue of Library Journal gave a "starred" review to V&M, in the book's first national review. T'was a nice way to start 'er off.
I'll check in on your website, and urge others to do likewise.
Thanks, Jeff, for the comment. Was just in The City last week, but thought i'd save the "hot dog in Time Square" celebration for the next trip. Sounds like you have the same early-rising writing schedule as me. (Just after grinding the coffee beans and setting the brew.)
Always glad to give you a shout-out, buddy. I'm sticking close to home this year, so no BEA or most others, but I AM looking at Deadly Ink for next year. I can make Jersey in 4 hours if I drive like Hannibal Jones. ;-)
You're right Deb. I do need to update my appearance page, but most of my recent "appearances" involve chauffering my son around and I'm not sure the world wants to hear about all that. I plan to spend time in NYC during Edgar Week catching up with people and I'll be at Deadly Ink this summer.
