That's means you written something powerful.
That's what I tell myself about THE SEX CLUB, which
is also a love it or hate it story. Beats the heck out being "okay."

Hi Cornelia
I just wanted to introduce myself because I've heard such great things about your work. I'm looking forward to reading The Crazy School. The DLs seem to love it.

Great to hear from you, Cornelia, thanks for making me a friend, and what a terrific Dead Kennedys video! I'm still looking for a decent one of "Too Drunk To F*ck." Also, a close Latin translation for "Never A Dull Moment" would read something like this: "Nunquam Minuta Plumbeus." Happy New Year!

Cornelia,
Finished A Field of Darkness under A Field of Light (SAD light, 30 min daily). It has marvelous strengths and some weaknesses. As I taught creative writing at Georgetown University and put nine students into novels, books, production in theater and movies, you might want to get my impressions. Or not. Up to you. Generally there are two kinds of readers who will start and stay with a story: those who take time and those who make time. In the first set there are those who pick up the book when an opportunity presents. These are less likely to finish than those who make time, who have a specific time during their daily routine for reading and stay with it. In the age of X box both are rare, but still persistent enough to keep you in print. Let me know if you'd like some insights. I note much of Shakespeare's approach in A Field, whether you realized it or not. You could do worse.
Best,

David

Hi - really looking forward to the Crazy School. I loved your voice in Field of Darkness. Totally won me over though I generally Have Issues with wealthy, clever deb types.

Cornelia did that musical error in the book get fixed for the paperback.

Is there a cyberspace equivalent of a black hole? If so, my last comments to you are either forever gone or hovering at the event horizon, waiting to be sucked in. Let me try again. Prompted by the Edgar nod and the neat ad in Mystery Scene, I've ordered an hc (hard copy) of A Field of Darkness, and will probably recommend it to my former writing students at Georgetown.
All The Best,

David

Thanks for the invite. Kristen Weber told me about Field of Darkness several years back, said you were a really good writer. As usual, she's right!

Hi Cornelia--I just finished Field of Darkness and am kicking myself for waiting so long. You did a wonderful job and I'm looking forward to reading The Crazy School.

"badly garbled assembly instructions written by persons for whom English is not the language of choice". Lol! In my "day job", I am an editor for those who write those instructions. It's an ongoing challenge!

Okay, so the comment on Sarah's blog about Guthrie was pure brown nose. I'm obligated - by contract - to fluff his ego. The suck up to you was completely free-will.

It's too quiet around here ... WAKE UP EVERYONE!!!!

Cornelia, you have the best graphics. When I read Naked Authors, I often crack up over the photos and whatnot. You have a gift. How about a graphic novel, girlfriend?

Hey Cornelia -- getting a friend request from you made me feel cooler than I've ever been...

Hey!

That's it. Just a drive-by howdy & a belated happy b-day.

:o)
