Hi James. I recognize your name and your books from my job at The Mystery Bookstore in Westwood. Very catchy covers btw. I see you plan on attending your first Bouchercon this year. I'm contemplating attending my first too. I attended Crimebake last year and hoped to go again this year but alas! I can't attend both due to $.
You had your books published and you have a day job? Kudos and to the Library Journal starred review. Speaking of libraries . . .
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.
You must have "heard" me talking about you on DorothyL today! I didn't start it, but someone said they liked BB, and I added my two cents. I'm ALWAYS honest. If I don't like a book, I say nothing. Anyway, thanks for the invite.
Leighton - I started this based on Sarah forwarding your recommendation. Guess I'll put a bit of time into it and see what happens. You figure it worthwhile?
Thanks for the good words; I will check out your work. Best to start with Blood of the Wicked? A series?
