Hi Michael, great to meet you. Yes, Kent is in South East England... supposedly 'the Garden of England!'
At the moment I'm unemployed, so sending my material off is cost prohibitive, but as soon as I get another job, then I shall start re-sending my novels out to literary agents.
I look forward to many discussions and chats with you, and to the development of a long friendship.
Look after yourself, and my best regards to your family and friends.

Kelli, I will do it as soon as I get home, but first I must stop at Finnegan's Wake for a socail hour or two. I am sure there is an Irish pub somehwere on the hills in S.F.

Hi, Michael! Congrats on your daughter's wedding!

It's still early for me (Nox comes out in July of next year), as my ARCS (and even the publisher's copy-edit) haven't been generated yet, so no reviews as of now. However, I've had my own ARCS printed for blurbing purposes and a copy is with a writer-friend waiting for him to get some time. :)

Blurbs might be a good way to go, if you don't think the reviews will come in time. Five Star sends the book to Publisher's Weekly, et. al., but you may need to follow up. Are you on the 5 Star Yahoo List? That's a good place to post related publishing questions, and someone there may have good advice. Let me know if you need to join!

I'd love to get there. I spent second grade in Florida, right outside Tallahassee. I have very fond memories of it--and I've seen the photos from the late '50s, when my parents used to party in Miami. ;) A different town, of course, but it's still a beautiful place.

One of my goals is to stay in print for a long time--I'll be trying to sell the second in my series early next year. So while the Sunshine State isn't on my first round of lists, it certainly is in my wish list. Right now I'm counting on California, Oregon, Washington, Chicago, NYC, Houston and New Orleans--and that tour in the UK.

Oh, and all this depends on that filthy lucre stuff, too. I always forget about it! ;)

Anyway, I'd love to see you in Florida or California, and hopefully we'll manage it! :)

Sigh ... I've always wanted to sail ... especially after seeing those home movies of Bogie and Bacall on the Santana!
Very cool, Michael!

I'm planning to canvass California in 2008/2009 (along with a few other states, and hopefully the UK) and am planning to try for the LA Times Book festival. I'm a member of Sisters in Crime LA and NorCal ( I love a chance to get to Chandlerville.)

Maybe we can hook up there or here, if I can persuade you to try the Bay Area. Lots of readers in S.F.! And are you heading for Bouchercon?

Thanks for the invite, Michael!

Key West sounds (and looks) fantastic, especially out here in perennially foggy San Francisco.

It's great to meet you! Let's hear it for Five Star!

Michael,
Great pictures...I'm an old sailor, the USN kind.

Unfortunatly my trip to Cuba was as a resident of Gitmo. I would love to see Old Havana one day.

Hi Michael,
Congrats on your first book! How exciting! I think nothing else compares to that first sale. Not that the others are bad either :) but the first one is the coolest. Be sure to give me a shout out when it hits stores!

Man, with a background and protag like that we need to be featuring you on Crime Always Pays ... drop by the blog and send me an email and we'll get something going ... when is Chasin' the Wind due out? Cheers, Dec

Hi Michael - Thanks for the invite, I really appreciate it. I see we have Casablanca in common ... just wondering, with sailing being such a passion of yours, if you like John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee books? Or am I making a huge mistake mixing up sailing and Travis simply living on a boat? I live and learn ... although not much, I'm afraid. Cheers, Dec

Kudos to the day job and the real job. I finished my novel, but now all my time is taken up in publicity and it's for a cuase of saving the libraries of New Orleans. My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.

Hi Michael, thanks for taking the time to check my profile out! I look forward to reading your novel in March.

Thanks for the nice words about "When the Wind Blows", Michael! I had no idea the issue of AHMM featuring it was out until I saw your comment.

I think CrimeSpace is a great idea, but I'd expect nothing less of the inimitable Daniel Hatadi.

Michael-- Another EQMM alum! I'll look for your story -- I know I still have that issue. I just finished another story -- Murder on the Main Line -- and sent it to them. Wish me luck! I used to live in Annapolis and sailed the Chesapeake a lot. I love Key West. You're a lucky man. Best, Meredith

Hey, another Five Star author. Thanks for the invite, Michael. Hope CTW sells like hotcakes and gets a stared PW review. Of course, I hope the same for my FS book, out in March, also.
Best, Mike
