Hi Patti - yes, I'll happily have a crack at a forgotten book review - sounds like a great project. Just tell me a bit more about what you require and I'll put my brain in to steep.

Cheers, m'dear!

shouting out to my michigan fam!

BTW, if you're a fiction reader, check out my books based in Detroit (all except Stone's Revenge, which is in Ohio). I'm a sensual noir author and I'm sure you'll enjoy them (not just because I wrote them, LOL.) Check out my books at by clicking here.

Patti: I completely forgot about this note from you! I meant to say HI THERE are Bcon this past week, but we kept passing in the night, so to speak. It has to have been the best con I've ever been to, not counting Sleuthfest of course :) Hope to see you at a sleuthfest sometime.

If you still want to do one, just email me a book you'd like remembered and comments at aa2579@wayne.edu and I'll post it. Thanks.

Hi Patricia

Never did figure out how to write for your Forgotten Books Blog, sorry :(

Hiya,

Apologies, I just came across your message about a favorite "forgotten" book. Can you tell me more about what you want?

Bill Crider did a piece on his column and I don't like to disappear beforehand.

You got it. I'll try to do both after looking at your blog and getting a feel for what's already out there. And tell me more about the EQMM article when you get a chance.

Both would be great if you have the time. It can be as short or as long as you like. Some have just been a paragraph; others probably a page. I can use one of them July 25th and one on August 1. Should your time become limited, just do the one you prefer, the one that comes easier. I really appreciate it. I'm trying to keep it going until a piece in EQMM comes out. So people don't have to say, "huh?" Thanks again.

Shall I call you Patti? Patricia?
Thanks for asking. My first thought is to offer a twist on your proposition by examining a forgotten book that I didn’t like – but one which was made into an exceptionally powerful film noir, and which also supplied the premise for my first novel. The book is Deadlier Than the Male (1942) by James Gunn, which was transformed into Born to Kill (1947), screenplay by Richard Macaulay and Eve Greene, directed by Robert Wise. When I first turned to novel writing in 2005 under the aegis of NaNoWriMo, I came up with an expanded plot based on the core elements of the book and movie. My novel is called Porkpie.

If that one doesn’t meet your specs, I could write with enthusiasm about a neglected James M. Cain classic, Serenade, which has to be his best novel NOT to be transmuted into Hollywood gold.

Or I could do both. Hey, there’s an offer! I’m in the middle of writing my third novel, so I would propose getting one or the other of these essays to you by the middle of next week. So, whaddya say? And tell me, what would be the word count you’re looking for?

Good morning Patricia. Just saying Hi and don't work too hard, it's Saturday.

Hi Patti - I would be more than happy to (although I have no blog other than the one on here). 18th July is no good for me though as I am away that weekend so I won't be able to post.
Tata, Donna

Hi Patti, I'm not going to be near a computer tomorrow, so I've put the forgotten book post up now. You can find it at:

Hi, Patricia -- I just sent Jeff an e-mail with my Friday pick.

Quite a concept you've created.

Patti, sure, I'd be happy to.

Hi Patricia
I am just staring to try my hand at short stories, as a way to keep the juices flowing when I get stuck with my new novel. I have just put a short story on my website - maybe you could take a look and let me know what you think. http://www.iangosling.com/short_story_the_taxman.htm Perhaps you could send me the links to some of your stories. Best wishes Ian
