LOST AND FOUND launched last Thursday and I’m still riding the wave of excitement! THANK YOU to everyone for making the day so special–and the fun continues. For a debut book to so quickly climb the amazon rankings (to 8065 at one point!) is unbelievable, but the fantastic reviews have blown me away. Of course I hope more readers will post their comments in reviews. That’s how I know what y’all want for the NEXT book.
Want to know more about the book’s characters, the writing process, and what’s fact vs fiction? Join me Oct 1-15 for a come-and-go email book club discussion (you’ll love the dog expert members of this group!). If you love dog books, the DogRead group is THE place to be.
Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo writer links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Some of this “schtuff” can be hard to categorize and may fit more than one topic so I urge you to at least scan them all. Don’t miss the neato video from Thrillerfest with Jon Land, panel master, interviewing the scary Ted Dekker, Jamie Freveletti, Lisa Gardner, Lisa Jackson and Wendy Corsi Staub. Hear about how to amp up the thrill write in your fiction without losing credibility, enjoy!
