Yeah - this was posted to lists yesterday and I was thrilled to see it. You were such a doll to my sister last year when she was sick. As for how I found the mention of Serenity? No clue. I just find all sorts of stuff on Google. Type in a name and then see what you find and type in what you find and see where that takes you - great when researching Wedgwood.
You are a wonder, ms. Fraser. I wouldn't know where to look to learn that I worked on Serenity. Good news - yesterday on PublishersMarketPlace.com: December, 2007
Robert Fate's BABY SHARK, Anthony Award nominee for Best original paperback novel, optioned to Brad Wyman (Monster) at Junction Films, in a nice deal, by Janet Reid at FinePrint Literary Management.
So, speaking of waiting - it will be a year or so, but it's fun to know the movie is on its way.
Happy holidays to you guys, Best, Bob
Okay so I am thrilled for you, of course. Lovely news to hear. Then I am telling my friend how excited I am and trying to find something online about your work with movies and stumble across the fact that you worked on Serenity! Colin and I loved that movie (like the series too) and Colin makes models too - only his are military historical figures. So I am stunned and impressed and very chuffed to be counted as your e-friend (although that pleased me without knowing anything about Serenity)
Bob: I finally got around to "Beaumont Blues" and absolutely loved it. I was wondering how you were going to segue into Kristen being a PI, but it worked quite well. Some may say the body count is high, but that's my kind of book!! May you have great success with this book, too. Wolf
Bob: Congrats on the Anthony nomination. Good luck. I just finished Baby Shark and it was a tour de force. Liked it immensely. I hadn't intended to read it right now, but certain events made me change my mind. I don't think I should discuss those reasons in this public forum, so if you'd like, I can do it offline. Let me know. Ciao, Wolf
Jackson - To be honest, I didn't know how cool this place was until I saw your face pop up. Front Page Jackie is my nickname for you these days. Congrats to you, getting your stuff on the front page of a big city newspaper. Will I see you at Bouchercon?
Well, I tell you one thing, Robert, I can't wait to meet Kristin, the Baby Shark! Or you, either, for that matter. ;)
Thanks for the encouragement. It's really nice to meet you, and I hope we'll meet in person at one of those conferences I keep hearing about. I think I need to get out of my house, quit being so reclusive and join up. But aren't all writers just a little bit reclusive?
Robert, Old Bean, Your Baby Shark books are marvelous, your characters memorable, the setting so vivid. I am in awe of your considerable talent. And you have an Oscar and can cook. A Man for All Seasons. Best of luck on the Anthony.
