Maybe next year. Warmly, Jennifer(less)

I'm not a marketing person, so I'm not sure what it is about reviews that make someone else want to read the book (but I might ask the Seventh Street Books marketing director.) No spoilers, of course. It's fun for me to read reviews that describe how the book impacted you personally. Putting a little piece of you in it makes it more interesting--your own voice. Drawing comparisons to other authors can be helpful, too, I think.(less)

Totally different. Totally awesome. THE BODY IN GRIFFITH PARK on Mysteryrat's Maze Podcast

I love, love, love radio plays, audiobooks, and being read to out loud by my husband, who is both dramatic and has a cute British accent. Mysteryrat's Maze Podcastfeatures actors performing short mystery stories or the first chapters of mystery novels. It's the exact kind of thing I adore.I jumped for joy when they decided to produce the first chapter of THE BODY IN GRIFFITH PARK for their show.Ma Read more of this blog post »

“The last thing he wanted was to be caught alone with Anna in a dressing room when she was in her underwear, and he didn't want to leave her because, well, he was alone with Anna in a dressing room and she was in her underwear.”
Jennifer Kincheloe, The Secret Life of Anna Blanc

“Wolf sincerely regretted disappointing her. He was disappointed. She might be a bad liar, but she had nerve, and she was a luscious little peach. “Thank you for coming in, Mrs. Holmes,” he said. She caught her trembling, rosebud lip between her teeth and extended her hand. He shook it. It was as soft as petals. She let him hold it a moment too long, and took a deep, sad, quivering breath. A button popped off the front of her frock, revealing an oval of creamy white, and before he could stop his mouth it said, “You're hired.”
Jennifer Kincheloe, The Secret Life of Anna Blanc

“Anna Blanc was the most beautiful woman ever to barrel down Long Beach Strand with the severed head of a Chinese man.”
Jennifer Kincheloe, The Woman in the Camphor Trunk

Bookworms Anonymous: The Woman in the Camphor Trunk 4 4 Jan 29, 2018 01:02AM  
“We who make stories know that we tell lies for a living. But they are good lies that say true things, and we owe it to our readers to build them as best we can. Because somewhere out there is someone who needs that story. Someone who will grow up with a different landscape, who without that story will be a different person. And who with that story may have hope, or wisdom, or kindness, or comfort. And that is why we write.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

“Anna shouted, “Help me! I’m naked and covered in honey!” Wolf slid across the kitchen tile, heading for the basement stairs like Hermes in a footrace. “Hold tight, honeybun! Here I come!” Joe Singer charged behind him with the lantern. Wolf was not going to see Anna in her honey, even if he had to shoot him. This was not police work. This was personal. He hurled himself at Wolf. “She’s my girl!” “Not anymore!”
