    Get Ready for a Killer Year…

    Friday, December 29th, 2006

    I’m having a difficult time crawling out from under my post-holiday Rock of Sloth. I got lots of wonderful new books–special thanks to my fabulous editor for sending me, among other treasures, an ARC of Lionel Shriver’s latest, The Post-Birthday World. Between reading and cooking and other extra-curricular activities, I’m not getting a whole lot […]

    Being a Texas girl myself, I’m partial to Leann Sweeney’s Yellow Rose Mysteries and I’m thrilled she’s guest blogging for us today about shaking things up! ~Sara

    As I was writing the fourth book in the Yellow Rose Mystery series (NAL/Signet) I was experiencing a difficult time in my life. I […]

    Returnees, Bargain Shoppers, and Me

    Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

    If you’ve ever worked retail you know what swoops through the doors at the start of business on December 26th…and you know it’s not pretty.
    First, you have your “returnees.” These are the folks who can’t wait to unload the boxes of stuff they’d never have bought for themselves (picture Ralphie, of A CHRISTMAS STORY […]

    Happy Holidays!

    Monday, December 25th, 2006


    I heard the bells on Christmas Day
    Their old, familiar carols play,
    And wild and sweet
    The words repeat
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
    And thought how, as the day had come,
    The belfries of all Christendom
    Had rolled along
    The unbroken song
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
    Till, ringing, singing on […]

    Santa Baby…

    Friday, December 22nd, 2006

    I’ve been a good girl this year.
    Really good.
    Disgustingly good.
    Yes, I’m talking to you, Santa. Bring me something miraculous and spectacular, will you? Please?
    Are you in a holiday sort of mood? I hope so–because we’ve got one of our best ever Virtual Cocktail Parties today. Our guest is the wonderful and amazing Shamus-nominated Harry Hunsicker whose […]

    Educating Heidi

    Thursday, December 21st, 2006

    So, before I go and spill all my writerly resolutions for the new year, I thought I would take one of them and ask for your help with it.
    Whenever any newbie or aspiring writer asks me for advice (and this happens sooooo often ’cause I’m sooooo successful), I always end whatever nit-picky, technical advice with […]

    Guest Blogger: Alex Sokoloff

    Wednesday, December 20th, 2006

    I met Alex Sokoloff at Bouchercon this year where she became an honorary Good Girl as she moderated the Good Girls’ famous (infamous?) Get Unwrapped panel. Alex is back with the Good Girls today as our guest blogger. Enjoy! ~Sara

    Oh What A Feeling…

    Tuesday, December 19th, 2006

    Every time I finish a manuscript I get this very distinct feeling in my chest. It’s like I’ve run a marathon in some respects. I’m exhausted, yet there’s something else there too—a kind of elation that’s as much physical as it is mental.
    I’d think it was a fluke if it didn’t happen […]

    A Woman of Resolve

    Monday, December 18th, 2006

    It’s that time of year again: the time to start considering your New Year’s Resolutions.
    New Year’s Resolutions are kind of like the Academy Awards for To Do lists. This is the big one. Granted, not everyone goes in for To Do lists (although I personally find them more dignified than plastering 87,000 Post It notes […]

    It Girl

    Friday, December 15th, 2006

    No, I’m not suggesting that I am an It Girl. But last week over on Murderati, my dear friend JT Ellison tagged me with the following meme, so for a fleeting moment I get to be IT in tag, which is almost like being an It Girl. This is astonishingly good timing as my […]
