We had a good day, took her where she wanted to eat and then had a few presents for her. BTW, on the final draft on your book hum? me too, scaring the stuffin' out of me...oh lord....this is the one I've been working on for a long tme. It gives me fits.
I love the look and sound of your page!!!
If you get a chance, buy my book HEADLOCK...you can get it cheap from amazon and for some reason on the UK site of amazon it is not searchable under Burl Barer, but only under Barer! I don't know why. I think you will get a kick out of it.
Carole, I finally got my audio player on. Check out my "music". I think it will take you back a day or two.You have to push the play button, I haven't figured out how to get it to turn on when you go to the page.
I just had to sashay through here and leave a little blurb about this page....it's absolutely divine:) I love every inch of it, and sit and listen to the music...over and over...:) I swear, it makes me want to light a cigarette and dim the lights...;) and I don't smoke;)
I'm in Yorkshire too Caraole, in the deep South. We must have a permananet cloud over the village, but it has been lovely here today since the rain stopped this morning. we even took our 4 dogsand the kids for a long walk in the woods this afternoon, though it was a bit muddy underfoot in places. Glad you enjoyed Lincolnshire. I was stationed there, at Scampton many years ago during my time in the RAF.
What a shame you had to let them go. That must have been hard. Tilly, the one inthe pic, is my 'assistant'. she was an abandoned rescue dog, and we saved her from a life of starvation and she now never leaves my side, and sits with me as I'm working all day at the computer. All our other dogs are also rescue dogs and all were abused or abandoned before we got them.
You're in England too? And it wasn't raining when I sent you that comment? You must be in the South. I can't rememebr a day up here when it hasn''t rained for months! Even today, which has been a gorgeous day, began with torrential rain until about 9 a.m.
I see you like Ed McBain's books. I have almost every one of the 87th precinct novels, and kind of grew up thinking Steve Carella, Meyer Meyer and the gang were real...lol
Anyway, I shan't ramble on any longer, have a great evening.
Things are well with me. The agent tells me four more editors have requested full manuscripts, I'm 80% finished with a new manuscript (though she doubts the marketability of its subject matter), and I have an idea for another series I should get working on over the summer.
I'm interested in what you're working on, but I'll respect your superstitions and wait until you're ready to spill before satusfying my curiosity.
That's OK, I appreciate all the help I can get, Carole and your first post about adding to the page was very helpful. Actually, I don't know Lee Lofland....yet...looks like he just sent me a friend request, though. I know he was at our Willamette Writers Conference in Portland a couple of years back, and I should have taken the opportunity to meet him then. No, I'm not quite yet an "ancient detective" but I'm getting there! I bbelieve this is year #30 in law enforcement for me, the last 18 years spent as a chief. But I have been a patrolman, a detective, and a detective sergeant in my career. It's cool that you're writing about police work in the 50's. I LOVE the old episodes of "Dragnet" and remember watching Jack Webb on black and white TV a kid. Broderick Crawford in "Highway Patrol" too. Geez...maybe I am more ancient than I thought!
Yup, a real cop, Carole, but I'm also a little "CrimeSpace" challenged at the moment. How in the heck do you get all these pictures, graphics, music, etc. on your page? I can deal with my website just fine, but this place is SO much like MySpace in appearance. I've been in "Customize Your Page" but so far only managed to change from a white background, to a blue one. :)
