For a long time, I wasn’t sure what to write on this blog, but a bookseller whose opinion I respect said that readers want to know about writers’ personal lives and that you really would want to hear about who I am and what I do–that you’d want me to talk about the things friends talk about to other friends.
But I also want this to be useful. So…I’ve decided to mix it up a little. On Mondays, I’ll talk about what’s going on at http://crimereaders.com, where I review books and profile other mystery and thriller authors.
On Wednesdays, I’ll post something for writers–maybe a piece of news I’ve found, book on craft or promotion, or a site you might find useful.
On Fridays, I’ll just share things about my life, for those who are interested: the horses, dogs, and birds, musings, adventures in publishing (or ballroom dancing), how things are going with the latest book, or anything else that might pop up.
