An offer to the Crimespace community:
I am looking for willing victims ..er... reviewers, and contributors for Shots Ezine. I'll be up front about this. There is no payment for reviews but you do get to keep the books; hardbacks, ARC's (proofs) or paperbacks to do with what you will afterwards. Ideally I'm after people in the UK to do the reviewing. But I will accept stories and articles from around the world. Here are our guidelines:…Continue
Without fans...............finish this sentence.
I am not an author, a grocery list has me stumped,
But I know a good book, at that I can't be trumped.
I am not famous, and never ever will be,
But Dang, I know when I read a really good mystery.
I have spread the word near and far.
Hoping my new author becomes a star.
So, very best wishes authors,and authors to be,
Who'll buy your book? Why little ole me.

Glad to see you here and thanks for posting. I have replied to several folks and apparently didn't hit the right key to "send." So I hope this post makes it. Glad to have Tony on board as one of "my friends." I'm accumulating a lot, which pleases me. I must confess that as a former kindergarten teacher, I have this compulsion to circle you all around me, and have you say something about yourself, so that others can know you and be friendly with you. Some old habits…Continue

A fairly relaxed day today. It feels soooo good to get my luggage back. Everything feels much calmer, as if I’m really here now rather than being in transit. Hmm. Maybe I do attach too much importance to my things after all. But they’re my things. Thank goodness it’s counselling tomorrow, eh? I obviously need the input.
And the office is glad I’ve got my case, as it means I can finally donate the Madeiran honey cake to the National Office Cake Shortage Society. Hmm. It’s lovely too…

This is my first "post" since joining Crime Space, and I'm probaby preaching to the choir (sorry for the cliche) but it's something that needs to be said.
I had an event at the Mystery Company in Carmel Indiana this past week, along with several other writers, and we had over 70 people in attendance. This was due, in no small part, to the efforts of store owner Jim Huang.
Jim has been a big (and early) supporter of mine as I suspect he has with many of you. And Jim is only one…Continue

Today I'm blogging about a blog. I've joined a great band of authors in a team blog called Acme Authors Link. Our members write in such diverse fields as mystery, humor, romantic suspense, and romantic comedy, even a how-to book on writing.
I've just posted my blog contribution today. It's about how much I hate & love writing.
I invite you to stop by and visit at ACME AUTHORS LINK…Continue

I just heard that I've made possibly my most remarkable foreign sale of all. (And believe me, if you've read my stuff you'll know that any foreign sale for me is remarkable.) The Polish edition of Asimov's science fiction and fantasy mag will publish my short story SOME HELP FROM STANLEY (which first appeared five years ago in The Third Alternative). It's really a noir story, with the added "sf" element that the disembodied voice of Stanley Kubrick plays a part.
Anyway, for this I…Continue

Bloody BA. Bloody BA courier. What the bloody hell do they think they’re doing?? Honestly, they’re so thick they couldn’t stuff a bloody luggage trolley up their own arses and turn it. And how I wish I could do the deed for them – that would be sooooo satisfying. We waited up till nearly 11.30pm last night for the non-existent ruddy delivery, and I am shattered today as I then lay awake worrying about it. Their bag-tracking system & website information is…Continue
