Hiya Carole - funny I know but i've been on here for quite a while now and have neglected my profile etc. Scrolling through the member page I saw your name so had to friend request. What would be the best thing about this site in your opinion?

Will :)

Well let me recommend "Crime Spree" to you.   It's an very unusual film, similar to Guy Ritchie's London things, but involves French gangsters coming to the US to steal something.   Gerard Depardieu, Harvey Keitel,   Abe Vigoda... and a lot of French actors, including singing stars Johnny Hallyday and Renau, both hilarious.

It's an unsung gem.

Hi, I saw that you're a bit of renegade ... I don't know much about Sci Fi, but I can definitely see a connection to horror!

Sounds very interesting.

I think my wife might have seen you giving a talk recently.

Congrats on your story Aftermath. I haven't been on Crimespace much lately, so it is great to see successes while I have been away. Take care,

Hey Kiddo,

I'm at Bouchercon in Indianapolis. How goes it?

Hi Carole Gill,

What a stylish profile photo. Nice to hear from you in Manhattan. I miss it. Lived at 92 & West End for a number of years but had to circle back to my native San Francisco to be closer to family. Your Science Fiction work sounds interesting. Congratulations, belatedly, on landinga publisher. I appreciate your friendly welcome to Crimespace. Cheers from SF to NYC, Alvin

Not ghosts and vampires, but certainly psychological horror.

Thanks for the good wishes Carole. We've got 3 heavyweight agents asking for the full ms now, and with any luck today they'll get it shipped out to them tomorrow. Stay tuned ...

Thanks for the hello and the compliments Carole. Sorry it took a while to get back to you. The layout here is fantastic! What an eye for noir you have.

Hi Carole,

yes, I understand that you are elated.

But I don't envy Obama. This huge amount of expectations all over the world - like a messiah. He cannot satisfy all that.

All the best

Hi Carole
I think most of the world is proud of the US at the moment.
And given your views of Australia as well it's probably time we became friends on crimespace - although you have so many I don't know when you get to write anthing/where but here.
Ain't procrastination the best thing a writer does!

Thanks for welcoming me to the site. It's a cool one. I am hoping to get out to the UK one of these days to do some research for a book in which I bring my Nashville songwriter-turned-detective, Deke Rivers, across the pond for a case. Deke has a hard enough time staying out of trouble on his native soil; it'll be fun to see what happens if I drop me in Jolly Old England.

Hi Carole,

Just got back from our summer place in Tennessee. Been hiking & gardening for a few days. Now I'm raring to go.

To answer your question. How do I keep myself revved Up? Scotch. Scotch rocks, Scotch neat, Scotch & water, & my favorite---Scotch direct from a 1.75 liter jug, I love licking the drool from my chin....

Seriously, we all get down from time to time. Shut the computer down, go do something you enjoy doing. Relax. Read someone else work.

I start something new when I get rutted in my present project. I've finished two novels. Am just starting the sequel to WHOO?? which moves the main characters from Michigan to the Alaskan gold rush. I've got some great research, this will be fun, practically writes itself.

Florida Boom too, is progressing nicely. My first female Protag is wonderful. Full of larceny and treachery, but oh, so sweet & beautiful...
I will end this rambling by remarking on my favorite, Elmore Leonard. Leonard is a bush pilot.

He's likes unpredictable characters; an unplotted story affords him a greater opportunity to take advantage of such characters. Also, not plotting his books in advance ensures that the action will be natural and unforced. In many instances, Leonard doesn't know what will happen more than a scene or two ahead. Usually he doesn't even know how his novel will end until he is almost finished writing it...He figures that if he's curious about what will happen next, the reader will be too. What is surprising to him will likely also be surprising to the reader.

I stayed up till 3:00 am one morning trying to figure out who killed Hank Bellows in WHOO??

My wife woke up and found me typing away and asked. "Aren't you coming to bed tonight?"

I said, "I just gotta find out who killed Hank."

"And you're writing it? And, you don't know?"

"Yup, I'm curious."

"Curious? I have a better explanation. Good night." Shaking her head. "Writers..."
