Karen, I'm so glad you made it to a SinC event; wish you'd told me you were going because I may have managed to find some energy for it. Maybe it was better I rested though. Did you have fun? Looked at your blog and it sounded a very interesting night.
Hi back Karen, so nice to hear from you. Translating is so much fun. For me it's one of the most intimate ways to get to know a book. There are some wonderful crime novels published in Germany which just deserve to come out in English, too.
All the best, Lisa
Thanks for your welcome. I see that you like Reginald Hill too. I'm still trying to find some of his books but I have several on my shelf.
Your bio has already given me several new(to me) writers to look out for.
Your dogs look really lovelly.
I keep thinking that hardback books will eventually become obsolete for fiction, except for small print runs for libraries only. And the new premium mass market paperbacks are blurring the line between mass market and trade paperbacks. We could eventually get to a one-size-fits-all trade paperback for fiction ... with limited sales ... because everyone has a Kindle-type reader.
How are things in sunny Oz? I thought I'd drop by to let you know as promised that my new novel 'A Study in Red - The secret Journal of Jack the Ripper' is now available in paperback from Amazon at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Study-Red-Secret-Journal-Ripper/dp/1554045274/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1202482660&sr=1-1
