Hey Libby! Thanks for accepting my request. See you on The Outfit.

Hello, I'm glad that you accepted my request. I look forward to discussing non-fiction crime with you and learning about fiction from you!

Libby,
I just saw your interview on New Mystery Reader. As the father of a 17-year-old daughter, part of me wants to read EASY INNOCENCE right away, and part of me says I won't sleep if I do.

I love that you shifted protagonists because you thought it would be too hard to keep finding credible murder situations for Ellie; I wish more crime fiction writers took that into consideration. I've don e over sixty reviews for NMR, and I can't remember the nuber of books where I thought, ten pages in, "Nope. That wouldn't happen." Of course, that's probably why I can't remember the books.

Looking forward to saying hello again at Bouchercon. Best wishes for the book.

Libby,
I finished CHICAGO BLUES last night, not a weak story in the bunch, though I thought The Outfit, along with Stuart Kaminsky and Max Allan Collins were the headliners. As irony would have it, I read most of the book on a plane flying to and from Chicago, or in my hotel during a business trip this past week. Kind of set the scene for me.

Libby,
It was a pleasure to meet you last night at the Pikesville library. I enjoy your and Cara's comments, and I'm looking forward to reading CHICAGO BLUES,as well as EASY INNOCENCE, though that one may have to wait for my TBR pile to reach manageable proportions.

I'm looking forward to seeing you again at Bouchercon.

Hi, Libby. I'm going to try to get to your signing in Pikesville, MD on Monday, if I can get out of work on time. Good luck, whether I do or don't.

Hope to see you there.

Dana

Congratulations on your presentation. It was as crisp and concise as you write. As yousaid you don't recomend books on how to write but you sure as hell could write one.

Libby,
I just saw a nice plug for CHICAGO BLUES on the Crime Fiction Dossier blog. Good to see the word is getting out, and continued success with this project.

No, I didn't know you grew up in DC. I think of you as Chicago, through and through. (Trust me, as a Pittsburgh native who lived in Chicago for three years between DC stints, thinking you're a Chicagoan is high praise.) Thanks for the friend invite, and I'll look forward to seeing you here and on The Outfit.

What am I doing in Washington. I'm drawn to the response to that question made by Jake Giddis (Jack Nicholson) in Chinatown: "As little as possible." Given that my humorously former fraternity brother Steve Hadley is now National Security Advisor I can probably get away with joking "Plotting the overthrow of the government" -- hi, Steve, I know you're listening in -- but this particular government is doing too good a job of plotting its own downfall, so why waste the effort? No, I am but a humble writer who had just finished a 188,000 word novel. As they say in press conferences here, "Next quesiton." It goes from me to you Why did you leave Washington. Your answer these days is "Why wouldn't anyone leave Washington." No? goesuuqvKnowst ;oologcofgono< S'tg ttionanuy jjiomit dline

Hi right back. As for the delay, well, this new-fangled technology has me in a whirl.

Hi Libby, thanks for the book info... Just made it over to The Outfit and read your "light crime" piece. I feel the same way about Sin in Second City. I plan to pick it up next time I'm on at B&N. Sounds scandalous and I love Chicago history. You guys keep me updated on the goings on in Chicago better than WGN :o)

Hi Libby...where can I find "Chicago Blues"? Don't want to wait until LIM...thinking of Christmas presents!
Hope you accepted my invite.

See we have matching leather motorcycle jackets!

Hi Libby, thanks for the invite. I see you're editing a Chicago Blues" anthology--weird coincidence my Hardluck Stories web-zine just released our Blues Noir issue. We also overlap with some of our favorite shows and movies... small world sometimes... Dave

Hi, Libby! Thanks for letting me be your friend!

I wish I could make Printer's Row... but my youngest critter is leaving for Europe in a couple weeks, and I've got to do so much (sigh).

Sorry that I'll miss you, though.

You didn't! It was very interesting. Thank you for taking the time to explain so much.

And, yes, I suppose this makes us "friends" now...

Hi Libby. Thank you for the interesting conversation at Mayhem's Sunday Brunch! I learned a lot.
