I heard from Dru Ann Love of Dru’s Book Musings last night and she has scheduled Another Ordinary Day With Colleen Caruso for July 26th. I read over the post and was surprised by all the information I gave out about Hide nor Hair! To be fair to myself, I didn’t really give away much more than the description on the back cover. The thing is, it reads like the Reader’s Digest Condensed Version of Hide nor Hair! I mention things like Colleen’s growing relationship with Ken Rhodes, the murders, of course, and Colleen’s mishaps with the local P.D. I think it was all necessary to give readers a feel for the second book – but the post is so informative that you’d think Colleen lives right next door to you and you know all her business. This is great within the pages of a book, but in a guest post? As we say in the New Jersey, New York, and Southern Connecticut tri-state area – Fuhgeddaboudit!
Anyway, I love Dru’s site and I can’t wait to see her again at the Deadly Ink Mystery Conference in August (if she’ll be there – she didn’t say). I’m scheduled for a few panels at the conference and, as always, I look forward to being there. It’s great chatting with other writers, meeting tons of mystery fans, signing books, and eating. I really like the eating part! Gee, remind me again why I gain weight.
Meanwhile, I’m getting headaches from writing Recurring. Hopefully I can really get down to business and figure out a glitch I realized has to be sorted out before the killer is uncovered. I’m still hoping to have this finished by the end of the month, but life has a nasty habit of getting in the way.
That’s it from rain-soaked, muggy New Jersey for now. The sun is coming out and the neighborhood birds are begging to be fed. Enjoy what’s left of your Sunday everyone, and dream of Long Beach Island in the picture above. Remember, your work day begins in less than 24 hours!
