Many thanks for your support, Anne!

The script for a second promotional spot on YouTube and elsewhere is finished, but my agent (who co-wrote and handled the first one) says that the new script (by me) seems to be one of Salvador Dali's nightmares.   :o

I took that as a compliment!   0:)

Forsooth!
 
(I first typed foresooth, and was nearly going to let the typo stand, for fun.)

I am reading this which arrived from Barnes and Noble yesterday.

Can't you see this kind of thing being good, mid teen - adult television?  I can.  Already the reading feels it offers everything a good murder mystery needs...I'll report back soon with a wee review.

I have lent my copy to a friend who will read it on her way home to Portland tomorrow.  The other item I lent her is a DVD of John Cleese's The Strange Case of the End of Civilization as We Know It.

I hope my little book is not evidence for the Cleese DVD!   :o

John:Many thanks for this praise, and yes, I will easily sell the rights for a TV/movie deal! 

I will give a discount for the entire package, since there are two more novels: it is a trilogy!   $:)

Now the price...how much?  Details, details!   0:)

Have ten years gone by since this trilogy entered American Literature?!

For the newer members here (and a gentle reminder for those who have been here for a longer time:

If you are looking for some Christmas presents - like books! - to get away (or to get some else away) from the computers and T.V. screens - books with a mystery and a sarcastic narrator    ;)    who offers Juvenalesque commentary on the follies of our modern society....let me recommend a trilogy:

The Time Capsule Murders:

Why Begins With W

Dial Emma for Murder

Hex High School


Barbara Brooks Wallace, winner of the Edgar Mystery Writers' Award, wrote of the series:

Quote

"Sam Spade meets with Holden Caulfield in the person of a young high-school detective of today.  Hard-boiled slang is replaced with pitch-perfect TeenSpeak....It's definitely a 'Can't-Put-It-Down-Until-You've-Read- It-All' kind of series.  Trust me!"

I enjoy periodically revisiting these, so I can affirm that Barbara Brooks Wallace's enthusiasm is merited.

Hi Karl, many thanks for the recommendation!

Karl is the best of my readers: his enthusiasm for my works, published and unpublished, has kept me going through my sporadic, Dostoyevskyan, "What's-the-use?" moods.

A little over 3 weeks until Christmas!   ???    It is snowing today in Ohio, 2-4 inches tonight perhaps!  CHRISTMAS is definitely coming!   :D
