Help Elaine Viets: Buy her new book

Posted by Lorraine Bartlett

Of course everyone here at Writers Plot wants you to buy OUR books. (They are quite wonderful, after all.) But today we're asking you to support one of our fellow authors.

Several weeks ago, author Elaine Viets (a friend of Leann's) had a devastating stroke. Emergency surgery has given Elaine a good shot at recovery, but not in time to promote her newest book, which…

Grandpa again soon...

My youngest girl has brought her family back to Virginia for a while because she's due this week with baby #3 and wants to be with her mama when he pokes his head out into the world. Naturally, there's been much chatter about, and with, children around here. Knowing my love of the language you won't be surprised about some of the awful puns this has all dredged up, like trying to determine whether or not the Little Mermaid wears an algebra and wondering if infants enjoy… Continue

blogging

For years I've hesitated to add to the blogosphere. There's no denying that there's a lot of amusing, entertaining, informative, heart-rending, compassionate, committed, useful (etc., etc.) stuff there but there's also so much garbage. It can be quite depressing reading the inarticulate ramblings of people with nothing to say. But, of course, none of my minor gripes is relevant when placed against the democratisation it represents. Voices are heard nowadays. Blogging may have recreated the…

Noirathon - LA vs NY: Round 13

The Champ: THE PEOPLE AGAINST O’HARA (NY)







It’s amazing to me that Spencer Tracy did only one picture in the Film Noir genre. He seemed like such a natural, with his weathered, everyman features and tormented soul. O’HARA is a about a lawyer, but it’s not strictly a courtroom drama. It has a complex and engaging plot, and needless to say, Tracy is wonderful as the retired attorney who agrees to get back in the ring one last time to… Continue

RV having fun?

Not really. The factory begins work at 6 a.m. Now, we're

retired, so we're used to sleeping a bit later than 5:30 a.m.

Like about three hours later than 5:30 a.m.



Anyway, they got a lot done, but not the windshield. They started

taking it apart, then stopped and did some other stuff we needed done,

and then quit for the day. Don't know when the windshield will

actually be replaced. Hopefully tomorrow.



I got no writing at all done. I should have. I… Continue

Steering Group and book circle

Was it just me or was last night's offering of "Kingdom" on TV slightly better than the week before? More jokes and sharpness, thank God. If they could only shake off the trappings of ruddy "Heartbeat", they'd be laughing. Oh and get rid of the irritating sister - a waste of space in my opinion. There, rant over. Phew



Have taken my calming pills to work today due to this evening’s University book circle discussion of A Dangerous Man (…

Sideways with Stephen King

Well, of course, I left my camera in New York--it's supposed to be on its way back to me today, but in the meantime, I thought that I'd post this photo provided to me by New York Japion, a weekly publication. I'm not quite sure how to make in vertical, so here we are, sideways.

Edgar Week was great; I'm indeed walking on air. Of course, the house is a mess,…

What I Learned at Backspace Today

Why wasn't I hanging out around Backspace months ago? The multi-talented Karen Dionne has an amazing site there--everything the budding or even recently budded writer needs. I visited by way of Susan Henderson's blog and cool writer hangout, LitPark, where Karen will be featured this week.

This is what I picked up today: J.A. Konrath's great list for preparing for a booksigning. This man knows how to handsell books--and he's sold a lot of them. I've attended many signings, and sat…
