I promised good things today, and I have a basketful of them--nice little silver linings, all of them. First, I have reviews for Silent in the Sanctuary. Mark at Book Cove Reviews posted this review last week. Book Cove Reviews is a year-old site that seems to be growing by the day. Diana from Romance Reviews Today posted her review this week and was inspired to go out and get the first book in the series to round out her collection. Thanks, Diana and Mark!
Also, my interview with the charming Scott Pack is up on his blog, Me and My Big Mouth Scott is the big kahuna of The Friday Project, a web to press publishing company--the world's first, I believe. He had already posted a review of Silent in the Grave--a wonderful review, actually--and asked some very interesting questions. He's the first interviewer to wonder aloud if Brisbane is my type! (You'll have to read the answer to find out. There is also a picture of Emma the Yellow Wonder Dog looking supremely bored with me.) Once you've read the interview, be sure to check out The Friday Project. I am drooling over some of those titles--particularly Eat Britain! (I have an unholy passion for British food. And apparently British bloggers...the next time I make it to London, I am going to have to stand SEVERAL rounds at the pub, I fear. The Britons have been very generous with their praise and I am wholly charmed by them.)
And for some very excellent SQUEEEE-worthy news, Silent in the Grave has received a nomination from the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association for a Dilys Award !!! This is the award that the booksellers present to the book they found most fun to sell. (I could not have chosen a category I would be more excited about, believe me!) In an interesting twist, last year's presenter of the Dilys, Barbara Peters, happens to own the Poisoned Pen in Arizona--the bookstore hosting a signing for me this Saturday! (Don't forget if you're in the Phoenix area I will be at the Poisoned Pen on Saturday, the 19th, at 1:00pm. For more details, check the left sidebar of the blog under "Appearances".)
