i thought about you last week- i hosted cozy mystery event last week with Shari Randall, Liz Mugavero, and Wendy Corsi Staub. The person who was supposed to interview them couldn't make it so he faxed over his questions and I had to do it. Was a really fun event and all 3 authors were awesome.

Melodie (melodieco) | 3651 comments I gave up on the series by Victoria Hamilton. I tried another series she wrote and didn't like it either. I think it's her writing style or something.

Ann (annrumsey) | 15069 comments Susie: Nice month! I can be hot and cold on a series sometimes too.
My mood, an "off" book or even just series / character fatigue can be a factor. Luckily there are many more to chose from when we give up on one. 😊

I'm reading both series. I don't mind the style, but I did notice I didn't like the main character a whole lot.

Ann, it seems like if I stay away from a series for too long, it's really hard to pick it up again. I definitely have a lot to choose from!

Ann (annrumsey) | 15069 comments Susie - same for me. I have several unfinished series lagging with a similar fate.

Sherry, look at you! Getting all host-y with your author events! One of these days you'll be interviewing Lee Child and Harlan Coben!
