Hello, Goodbye, Hello!

2010 was a banner year for me -- it was the year I received word from Poisoned Pen Press that they were interested in publishing my mystery novel (!!!). It had a really goofy title that my editor instantly rejected because it had the word "blood" in it. "You can't use that word anymore without people thinking it's a vampire novel," she said. She suggested the current title --  The Dangerous Edge of Things -- a quotation from a poem by Robert Browning:
Our interest's on the dangerous edge of things.
The honest thief, the tender murderer,
The superstitious atheist.
In 2011, my goals are to finish up as-yet-unnamed Book #2 in the series that Book #1 began, and to stretch a little out of my comfort zone as I prepare for all the book signings and other author events that have me quaking in my boots. And to be grateful. Can't forget that one. Always and ever grateful for all my wonderful friends and fellow writers. Awesome to the awesomest degree, every single one.
