I don't have a publication date yet, but will spread the word when I do. By the way, you mentioned 3 of my favorite British mystery writers! I hope you enjoyed the rest of the book, and please let me know if you have any further questions! Best regards and Happy New Year, Alice(less)

I don't think this quite counts as "in production". . . since the writing process takes a good while. On the plus side, my publisher (Cozy Cat Press) moves quickly to get the books out when I am ready. I'll be posting news on my author Facebook page, Twitter, website, and in my newsletter. . . that is, shouting from the electronic rooftops. . . when the next book is coming out. Keep in touch! Best, Alice (less)

The things worth writing about

The poet Jack Gilbert said the only things worth writing about were: ”Love, death, man, virtue, nature, magnitude, excellence, evil, suffering, courage, morality. What is the good life. What is honor. Who am I.”

So what about women? I suppose many subjects I would add to the list fit under virtue, magnitude, etc. But only a man would still use “man” in that way.

I’m reading a book about women in... Read more of this blog post »
