Hi Donna, nice to meet you. Yeah, guns - shudder!!

Hi, Rose, what a great forum on 'guns'! I guess Australia must have similar views to Canada on the gun issue, probably a product of our colonial days.
Anyway, good to see you here.

Hi Rose - in case you're off the SinC event tonight in the city - I hope you have a great time. Alas I think I'm going to miss this one - slight crisis with some stuff around here and it's off to the hardware store to buy some bits :)

Hi Rose - I wasn't too sure if we would get there but in the end I dragged along the husband and the neighbours and we had a great night - very timely as well as I read Eden and Trojan Dog not so long ago, now I have to get to Alison and Liz's books :)

The new venue seemed really good (not that I saw the old one of course), but the pub's own beer on tap was very very nice :)

Hopefully I'll make the next one as well - I'll know closer to the day I guess.

LOL, Karen. Trouble is, now my wheels are firmly stuck in the mud. Hmm... Good luck with the characters. I keep feeling so far out of my depth with a full on novel - where do I start, how do I go about it? I tried the whole character thing and got so bogged down, then felt constrained by what I'd decided for them. Here's hoping you're right and 08 is our year to get going!

Hi Rose, well my writing has stalled a bit, temporarily, as well, due to the fact that our shop has been busy with the back-to-school thing. But, as February is usually a quiet month I will launch back into it, with gusto. By the way, that 'spinning the wheels' analogy of Sue Grafton's that you told me about at the Scarlet Stiletto night has really stuck in my mind, so I am at present building characters for my first novel. Let's both make '08 our year!

Hi Rose, how's it going?

Hi Rose! Thanks for your note about the blog. That post about "scary finger food" was written by my co-blogger, Camille Minichino, who always has very creative ideas!

I'm gonna vacation in Sydney sometime in '08, just to make sure I dig the city (I think I will, though). Then I'll work on moving down. Sounds like it's tough to get a working visa, but I'm pleasantly persistent ;)

Thanks for that list of Sydney mystery writers, Rose!

Don't you just hate them there "fatal errors"? See you soon then! If I'm not driving you, make sure you come and introduce yourself, ok?
At 11:39am on November 6, 2007, Karen from AustCrime said…
Rose - thank you for the email and my apologies for not responding that way - your return to address is failing with permanent fatal errors which seems a bit fatal. But I added both those Sisters in Crime events and hope more people will join in.

thanks for that! if we can we'll say Good day, Mate! (in person)! You bet. I think I still have a strong American accent, although people in NY say I don't sound the same! so who knows?!

i live in West Yorkshire. Near WAkefield. My husband is from a farm and me--! i'm from Manhattan! but it's lovely here and I wouldn't live in a big city again! you're right about the m 25. Yes, it's a beautiful country. by the way, I 've always wanted to visit Australia. it's huge! even bigger than america! have you seen all of it or most of it?
At 11:21pm on November 5, 2007, carole gill said…
You're certainly welcome! I am American born but have resided in the UK for over 20 years and see things through different eyes and have done for many years. No Rose you're quite right. that culture is so ingrained people don't even see things some times! Don't you worry! I don't like a gun culture and happened to have stayed in England after my first marriage was over based on that to a great extent!
Welcome to the site and please stay in touch! i sometimes get fed up and don't go on the site as much as I did. But I do go on every now and then just to see what's going on. all the best to you rose!

"Morning, Wozie. You've been a busy girl! I was too yesterday. Submitted all over the place!

Haven't gotten word yet on my submission to How'd They Do That? other than being held for further consideration. I understand they had around 200 submissions, alot of which were in the last several weeks. Since they want 15 to 20 stories for the Anthology, that's stiff competition, and about 4 more weeks to wait to hear!!!

Submitted the hurricane story to an Ezine, and the little Flash piece about the Buddhist monk, to a wonderful looking ezine that seemed perfect for it. Back to the waiting game.

When will you hear from Celepene Press on the gourmet story?

Best,
Deb

I see what you mean about the logo. Actually I think you're right!
