Crimespace ate my message! Just wanted to say thanks, and the same to you. And congratulations on the book and the positive response to it - I know I'm such a worrier getting those first few reviews out of the way is a huge relief!
You have some great reviews. Hope your launch party is a big success. I'm having one Saturday for The Marathon Murders. Although it's my fourth book, it will be my first launch party. It'll be in the restored showroom of Marathon Motor Works, the long-defunct company featured in the book. My wife is working on refreshments, but we have no idea how many people might show up. That adds a little mystery.
Hi Elizabeth! :-) : Really enjoyed reading about you and your books and blogs (busy, talented, friendly - I'm sticking out my arms for a cyber hug )
I'm about an eyelash above computer illiterate but love to write and also enjoy 'meeting' new writers and readers. I appreciate all the talented writers who have (and still are) giving me such good reads and entertainment - not to mention broadening my education.
Nice to meet you,
PS: To get to info about me just Google and click to where you want to go (if they asked for a footprint, you can bet I'd be trying to figure out how to do that too...LOL
Thank you Liz, & Happy Valentines's Day to you also.
Today we (in Australia) witnessed history when the Prime Minister apologised to our indiginous peoples for the wrongs done to them over the generations. Very moving (how often can you say that about government)
Congratulations, Elizabeth, on making it into print. A huge achievement - so many obstacles to overcome. I tried submitting to St Martin's but find I need a literary agent and the site they referred me to demanded a huge subscription. So, any ideas on agents in the US handling our genre? May the book sell well. Cheers, Tony
Joylene, let me know if you ever fulfill that New York City dream. I feel so lucky to have the fun of MWA and SinC chapter meetings, opportunities to "dress to kill" for the Edgars, an occasional 20-minute run to hand deliver a manuscript to an agent or editor, and events like the New Year's Eve fireworks in Central park and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade just a short walk away.
I'm rushing out to my New Year's Eve date (dinner and a movie with hubby, and if we're lucky, we may catch most of the fireworks at midnight in Central Park, a block from the theater), so can't answer individual comments tonight, but I'm charmed by the fact that some of you are writing to me from January 1, 2008, when it's only 7:30 pm on the 31st, 2007 in New York. Am I in a time machine? Are you really contacting me from next year? Or are we all in Daniel's Australian time here on CrimeSpace? Catch ya next year, and a wonderful 24 hours and 365 days to all of you. :)
