Update, 9 April 2010
Having just had a near-death experience, I thought I should take that as a sign and update my various contact places. (What near death experience? Glad you asked.) I drove home from the southern part of the state (Western Australia) yesterday and made 324 of the 326 kilometers with nary a scare, and as I came up on the turn off the highway to my neighbourhood, an 18-wheeler put on his signals and began to pull out to pass TWO other 18-wheelers. Obviously he could not see my little hatchback, and there was no place I could go due to the median strip kerb, so I just put the pedal to the metal and prayed. Made it by 'that much', turned off safely, and got home before the adrenal glands gave out.
So, to update: "The Angelus Ghost" has gone into its second printing and been picked up as well by a new e-publisher. "Bitter Bones" was seelcted by the same e-publisher. Check out www.fidopublishing.com
for details. For a review of Bitter Bones and an interview with moi, see www.newmysteryreader.com
. "Death in the Sea of Grass" has been picked up by Fido also, and will also be coming out in hard print--with any luck at all, next month.
On the non-crime book front, the fifth in my series of children's books aout the two little bandicoots Bounce and Pounce , "Where's Our Dad?" came out late last year, as did the collection of real-life animal stories for grownups, "A Tree in Mundaring". The first printing is nearly sold out and I plan to reprint next month.
What's everyone else up to?
