You wrote, "I don't come here often..." Me either; the habit's slow to form because at first visiting here wasn't worth the price in exhausted patience, but it seems to be working now, so we'll see. Of cours, that's what I said about a year ago. You also wrote, "... I do re-read my novels ocasionally..." Curiously enough, I seem to have quit reading my own. Part of sort of getting tired of modern mystery, which contains too few puzzles for my narrow tastes. Kay and I have a book of short stories out now, but don't expect your bookstore to stock it (either) unless you nag them about it. Happy October, Byron
Thanks, Lynette. Yes, all seems well so far, if horribly slow. I have a book coming out in July and am pinning all my hopes on it. My historical thriller apparently did not sell -- possibly because it was offered to romance publishers. A big disappointment, but one must move on. So good to hear from you, and I hope all is well with you also.
Hi, Lynette. How very nice to hear from you. Yes, I miss the old MWF also. Many nice people left when we switched. I'm okay. Writing another Akitada novel (# 8), revising the next one due out next summer (# 6), waiting to hear about some other books, but generally not all that hopeful. It's a terrible market.
How are you? ECHOES OF MERCY is a new one, isn't it? Congratulations and much good luck! Tell the others at MWF hello from me.
Lynnette, thanks for adding us. I (Larry) feel a little awkward on sites that indicate a writing specialty. Our first collaborative novel, The Ballad of Lacey Jay, is a crime novel, but is more of a psychological thriller. My wife, Barbara, was a romance novelist when we met, now we tend to be omniscribes. We'll write about anything. I'm working on an espionage thriller at present while Barbi's writing a ghost-story romance. I'm also trying to turn a western short story into period fiction built around western migration in the post-civil war era.
Other than that, I was a journalist early and a senior-level technical writer until I met Barbi. Things have never been the same!
Hope you're well. I'm pleased to say Reaper is now available in the States on amazon.com at $16.99. In advanced search type Dunne for author and Reaper for title. Hope you take a look and spread the word. How's your own book going?
Good question. Only over the internet I suspect. I'd be interested to know if you get any hits. I know Borders are in the process of stocking it so there might be a knock on effect. There's always Amazon.
