Congratulations on your book. It's a great cover. There's nothing that matches getting that first novel into print. Now the games really begin. Is Death Will Get You Sober a stand-alone or first in a series? We exchanged notes before: my protag is a recovering alcoholic who owns a parking garage, and her dad is a compulsive gambler. Hmmmmm I do seem to like addictions. They do make interesting characters. I thought I was writing a stand-alone, but now I'm struggling to come up with book 3. I hope I haven't burnt too many bridges. I sure didn't do it the easy way. Best of luck!
Like Julia, I received a message that you ahd sent me a message, but I can't find your message. Of course, I also supposedly have one new friend request, but when I click to view the request, nothing happens. Perhaps CrimeSpace had too much to drink for New Year's Eve and is feeling queasy.
In any case, happy new year.

Great cover. Good thing I don't drink. Might get shot in the glass. Is that what they call a shot glass?

I'm looking forward to my first bona fide mystery, LIVE Ringer, coming in out 2008, then my women's fiction, Of Words & Music in 2009. It's going to be a busy two years. I hope your 2008 is the best yet!
I am definitely over 30 (waaay over!), ditto 40, but I'm pleased to be part of your circle. If you haven't checked my website, I write genre fiction, too, a suspense novel called CROSSHAIRS. Good luck with SOBER and with your search for non-readers. And Happy New Year, too!
