Thanks, Carola. Aufbau seems no longer interested, but we have lots of publishing houses in Germany. I'm hopeful.

No used to be up there!
Lake District--but I've lived in West Yorkshire for the past six years. Remarried here.
You must be so proud of your niece! That was some hit. Zoe Wannamaker (Sam W's) daughter directed.
I did see a review and they said it was mesmerizing (sp).
When I lived in Lancaster, there was the Duke's Playhouse I used to go to alot and it was convenient for writing venues--much more so than where I live now. Semi Rural Yorkshire, know what I mean?!
But fate reigned me in I suppose (although happily married) and focused me on writing seriously so I am!
Thanks Carola. I hope you get to see your niece in that show. Perhaps it will go on tour.

5 months of spring is one of the best things about Eugene. I'm looking out at plum and cherry blossom, tulips, daffodils, forsythia, rhodies ,bleeding hearts, grape hyacinths, primroses, wallflowers and of course the ubiquitous dandelions and daisies.

I painted the living room for most of the day and had the computer on listening to music. Then we went for a long motorcycle ride in the glorious sun. Yard work tomorrow. I hope your ribs get better soon. I'm sure I'll be sore by end of the day tomorrow. I love spring!

I certainly am. I'll post to your site with further suggestions.

Glad you like it. My first dozen or so books for St Martin's had very iffy covers, some ok, some terrible. At last, with Die Laughing, the art dept found an artist both I and my editor love. I still have to remind him/her occasionally about period waistlines, hats etc. but they turn out great. The Bloody Tower was nearly a disaster, however. The original artwork had E II R (Queen Elizabeth II) on the Yeoman Warder's tunic instead of G V R (it's set in 1925). That's what went on the ARCs. An observant reviewer drew it to my attention barely in time to get it changed for the book.

It's great, isn't it? My first dozen or so from St Martin's had very iffy covers, some ok, some terrible, then the art dept came up with an artist both I and my editor love. I still have to remind him/her about things like waistlines and hats, and--horror of horrors--the original of The Bloody Tower cover had the Yeoman Warder with E II R on his chest instead of G V R (you can't really see what it says on the web, but it's set in 1925). They put the wrong one on the ARCs, and I just caught it, thanks to an observant reviewer, the day before it would have been too late to correct for the book.

I have the same time/money issue. A month ago when I thought about registering I couldn't get the time off. Then I got off and had the time, but was afraid to spend the money. Thanks for the links.

Just plain don't have time for conferences this year--I made the deadline on Manna from Hades and I'm already in a panic about the next, in December. This year I can afford the money but not the time--isn't that always the way?

I'll see if I can find the slug queen online--can't believe it's not there somewhere.

I wanted to find a picture/link to post but couldn't.
Why aren't you at LCC? Or are you?

50 Books? Congratulations. I'm a late starter at this caper so I ain't never gonna catch up. Got a deadline for Book #4 in a couple of months and book #5 is due at the publisher early 2009.

Love those covers, they bring over all Wodehouse.

I never got into Upfield I must admit and the concept of the black/white relationship acceptable at the time doesn't seem to sit well today. I have a feeling that there was a TV series made locally in the 60's that used a Maori actor as Bony which probably says a lot.

Over the past few years I’ve noticed a number of hits on my website from the Pacific northwest but I have to admit while my travels in the US have gone no further north than SF and upper NY State the Washington State/Oregon area has always had a pull. If I can land myself a US publisher I’ll have to come see what I’ve been missing.

I love your "photo"--very disappointed to hear it's not you ;-)

God! You could have fooled me with that long red hair! You don't look like a Grannie!
By the way, it's incredible that your books aren't published here! they should be!
I got so fed up with how I looked on here, I decided to put up a Burlesque Queen for an i.d. how nuts is that?!

That could be misunderstood. I should have said:
Carole--that's my granddaughter, Maggie...

It's my granddaughter, Carole, when we were in Cornwall a few years ago. She was 6 months old and is now 5 and in kindergarten, but I don't have so many decent pics of myself to choose between!

Fabulous photo! Love the baby! Is she your muse?!
