Back to being a novelist

Death Wishing did not make a lot of year end lists, but it seems to be getting steady lovin'. Just yesterday, Scott Garson posted a moving little review on his blog--which he hardly EVER updates, so a mention there feels pretty damned special. A couple of weeks ago, Robert Swartwood included DW in his year-ender, which doesn't feature much in the way of chick-lit. On New Year's day, DW was picked for the January Top 10 "Books to know" list by The DC Spotlight.

In addition to these lovely public endorsements, I've been racking up the sweetness on Goodreads--Thank you Kathy Fish, Lauren Becker, and all you strangers tossing out the stars. It's just lovely, weird, lovely, weird . . .

And you know what else is weird? Getting paid. Someone's offered me a nice chunka change to come read at their series. I want to say how much, but that's really crude. Need to do it in code. Count your fingers. Replace the word "bodies" with "bucks" at he bottom of page 9.
