Thanks, Don--I saw the note and just commented on it. In all honesty, I've gotten your same reaction so far from all my early readers, my editor, my publisher, and everyone I know who's read it. The book's probably not going to get a lot of marketing behind it in the US, but I think people who find it are going to really like it (or be horrified by it).
Thanks for the invite Don. I see we share similar taste in writers. Just met Megan Abbott the other day at the bookstore where I work. She's such a cute petite little thing -although she probably hates being called that. And Charlie Huston is a common sight at our store - love him!
Hi Don (again!) - sent you a mail / comment there about your new novel Ladykiller, which may have come as some surprise to you ... apologies, confusion reigns. Normal service will be resumed as soon as I get my head out of my fundament ... re: Quinn - really glad you liked it, and I can't understand why Seamus Smyth wasn't a big success in the US with it ... Cheers, Dec
Thanks for dropping by my space ... glad you liked Quinn, it's not everyone's cup of tea but I think the narrative voice is so strong it grips you within a few pages.
I see we have Bruen, Pelecanos, Starr and McKinty in common, bookshelves-wise ... I'm reading The Dead Yard at the moment, just started last night ... I think the guy's a powerful writer, with a rare touch of authenticity. As a reader, I love him ... as a wannabe writer, I hate him. Which is a compliment of sorts ...
Thanks again for dropping by and making me feel welcome, I really appreciate it.
