Congratulations on your Edgar nomination. I read MONEY SHOT, and it has earned all the recognition it has received. Good luck.

Thanks.

I subscribed to Wrestling Observer Newsletter for about six years before I took my "break" and always found the Lucha Libre recaps interesting. I wish I had a source for watching this. Got any ideas? I'm in Ohio so we don't have any stations that televise AAA or CMLL or anything.

You love pro wrestling, don't you? I'm a recovering pro wrestling fan.

Thanks for befriending me, you pulp queen you. ;) My books are more on the other end of the spectrum--cozy mysteries.

MONEY SHOT was recommended to me by several people here as a good example of noir written by a woman. (It was part of a discussion, people looking for noir fiction by women.) It sat in the TBR pile for about three months; I finally got around to it last week. Outstanding read. You made Angel tough enough to be a noir heroine, but didn;t just turn her into a man with internal plumbing. She needs the physical strength and street smarts of Lalo at times, and learns to take care of herself as well. The writing is tight, the dialog is spot on, and the plot is believable without being predictable. The word of mouth was right.

Honey, I've met some hardboiled before, but you -- you're twenty minutes! Wish I could remember which film that was from, but after reading Money Shot, I knew you would appreciate it. Thanks for inspiring the rest of us.

Hi Christa, I'm currently half way through Money Shot and I'm loving it. Hard Case are wonderful - there needs to be more publishers putting books out that look and read so beautifully.
Best, Simon

I just read an excerpt from MONEY SHOT. Wow, what a set up. "Then he hit me in the face."

That was VERY good. Now, of course, I have to read the rest of it. Oh well, that's what TBR lists are for I guess.

Nice work.

Hi Christa
I keep hearing great things about MONEY SHOT. Congratulations! (It's in my TBR list.)

Hi Christa, I like your website. You might like the video on my page, it's got a touch of rockin' modern b-movie about it. If you like it and ever need a video scripted please think of me! See ya, Alison x

Congrats on coming out with "Hard Case Crime." Good, good, publisher. Great books. Old and new.

I assure you that I am real, though often unrealistic. Your characters will have to speak for themselves.

Into everyone's day a little weirdness should spill, as long as its not too weird or too sticky to clean up. Here's yours. From your blogs you seem a lot like some of my female characters, at least some that I like the best. Some have called these characters unrealistic. But since you are real, they cannot be unrealistic, simply previously unrealized. Or am I being unrealistic to expect a realistic real character to vindicate my allegedly unrealistic characters? You have sixty seconds in which to answer in twenty-five words or fewer.

Christa, You were great on the How To Write a Mystery panel. Your perspective is so vibrant and I doubt if there has ever been a word you have minced. Good luck on your latest book.

Thanks for the referral to this place. I've been trying to figure out how to get the most out of it - without it taking up all my time (that's the hard part). It seems like it's going to be really useful and fun and I'll no doubt meet some entertaining people because of it.

I haven't read BEDELIA, but I absolutely love IN A LONELY PLACE. I also enjoyed LAURA (though it's a bit more girly than my usual fare) and THE G STRING MURDERS. I'm very curious about WOMEN'S BARRACKS.

Reading IN A LONELY PLACE right now and I'm totally hooked. I have to get my hands on the rest of Feminist Press' Femmes Fatales series. Have you read the others in the series? Any recommendations? They've reprinted another Hughes book, I see.
