I’m looking forward to sharing writing experiences with you.
I have “finished” a mystery novel, still needing some fact checking and editing. My plan is to hire an editor and then put it on a print and demand website such as lulu.com.
Reason: I don’t want the hassle of trying to sell and promote it. Yet don’t want it to land in a drawer, as some kind of hobby product.
Any thoughts? Any suggestions for an editor? Your opinions are welcomed.

Hi Pari - I love your name, by the way. I see by your bio that you are a student of languages. Parlez-vous français? Je suis en train d'apprendre la belle langue - a govenment requirement (for my job). Thanks for adding me to your friend list.
hi ya sweets!
I am CR The Clovis Incident, and enjoying it immensely.
However, I want to take you to task for unduely influencing your readers.
Guess which pseudo canned dairy product I bought at the grocery store to bring with me on my holiday?!
I have always had to have my hands on something otherwise I would get into trouble.. Regarding my mystey, well it's a cozy and is it a series? I sure hope it will be. I have ideas I'm jotting down all the time..Thank you for such a nice welcome...
Thanks for inviting me. Guess you noticed I pasted in my favorite reads from my list for DorothyL last year. I did like the email you sent when I listed them awhile back. And I liked seeing your matzo ball soup. My husband makes it at our house.
HI, Pari. Glad to join your gang. It's interesting to meet someone else with a China connection. Ever thought about writing about your past in Hong Kong?
Asian crime fiction rarely makes it big on the world stage, but just occasionally it makes its presence felt. "The Departed" for example, was a Hong Kong-written crime story that was transplanted to Boston and swept the Oscars this year. Three more HK crime stories have been purchased by Hollywood.
I think there's a case to be made for writers to deliberately find offbeat subjects and locations for their stories. Publishers and film houses will shy away from taking risks, but for the ones who do, the rewards are great.
