Update & Request

First, thank you to everyone for being so patient with me during this long absence. I truly appreciate those of you who still drop by to see what I’m up to, and don’t blame those of you who have decided to move on after so much silence.

As most of you know, book two is long done and I’m hard at work on book three. St. Martin’s has come up with some new ideas about the release of the second book and this will mean a delay until probably the fall of 2008. In the meantime, my story BOTTOM DEAL will be in the January release, KILLER YEAR: Stories to Die For, and the US paperback version of KISS HER GOODBYE will be coming out around April 30th.

Being a typical author, every once in awhile I go to the Amazon page to see what’s up, check if there are any new reviews, etc. But I’ve noticed that the number of Amazon reviews hasn’t changed in quite awhile. I suppose I could assume that nobody’s reading the book — but I know that isn’t true, based on the library and sales stats.

So, I have a favor to ask. If those of you who have read and enjoyed the book could take a moment to go over to Amazon and write your review, I’d appreciate it. You don’t need more than a few words.

Again, I appreciate your support. I promise that sometime in the next month or so, you’ll find a brand new, revamped website and blog.

    Fall of 2008??? Ack. I have zero patience. I don’t want to wait. But it sounds like SMP has a few tricks up their sleeves, so I’m sure it’s for the best. But still…whine, whine, whine.

    Good to see you’re back! Missed your wonderful and insightful posts. Although I know its got to be hard to come up with blogging when you have deadlines. Another site mentioned “merchandizing rights” on books. (where would J.K. Rowlings be without them?) so I was wondering if that applies to books in your genre? I mean look at Sherlock Holmes? If he were written today they’d be selling Sherlock dolls and caps and all kinds of things. Are merchandizing rights something you would worry about?

    Jeannie, I think in order to start worrying about merchandising rights, you’d have to have sales about like Rowling’s. To be honest, I have no idea if I’ve retained those rights or even if they were addressed.

    I’m trying to think of a Kiss Her Goodbye or Whisper in the Dark merchandising scheme and one just doesn’t come to mind… :)

    By the way, thanks so much for the Amazon review.
