Tunes? Eats? Fooling around?
I'm still deep in the rewrites for book four. I did crawl out of my cave long enough to attend the signing of one of my all-time favorite writers, Jennie Shortridge
. Her debut novel, Riding with the Queen
, is about music. Eating Heaven
is about food (and family loss). Book three, Love and Biology at the Center of the Universe
, completes the triangle of Jennie's obsessions: Music...Food...and...SEX.
Yesterday, I again escaped the cave to attend a show of everyone's favorite Love Bondage Goddess, Judy Tenuta
. She's the funniest woman in America. If you don't believe me, just ask her.
How many of your dance cards include the movie Sex and the City
? For one opinion, check out New York Observer reviewer, Rex Reed
, at his bitchy best. MEOW!
Fellow mystery writer Pari Noskin Taichert
has just learned that her blog Murderati
, is up for an Anthony Award for Best Mystery Website for 2007. As Pari said in her announcement, Yee Haw!
PS This Saturday I'll be presenting a workshop for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. Here's the pitch: The day arrives and you get the call. A publishing house has bought your manuscript. Your dream has come true. Soon, your book will be on the shelves.
Okay, now what!
Yes, now what? Hey, I've learned something.
The workshop will be June 14, 2008, from 1 pm to 3 pm at the Belmar Public
Library, 555 S. Allison Parkway, Denver, just west of the intersection of
Wadsworth and West Virginia, across from the Belmar Shopping Center,
Lakewood, CO. This workshop is free, and open to the public (meaning you).
