It's almost autumn. Nights are getting noticeably chillier and the days are shorter. Canadians are already looking forward to Thanksgiving, which is the second Monday of October.
I am - with regret - winding down my blogging and promotion of Bran New Death. Why am I a little sad? This series is special to me because it is written in first person, like most of my favorite series to read. It was a dream of mine to write a mystery in first person, and with the character of Merry Wynter I have been able to do just that.
I have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback, and can officially say that Bran New Death is a national bestseller. It made it to #3 on the Barnes & Noble mystery list, #35 among paperbacks overall.
So today is one of my very last blog stops for Bran New Death. I am at Fresh Fiction, writing about... how I juggle writing three series!
Funny story about this: on September 4th I got an automated email saying I needed to send in my Fresh Fiction guest blog entry for... wait for it... September 4th! I had messed up, I thought, a hideous idea to me because I am reasonably well organized and had them down for September 19th. I just hate making that kind of mistake because it means I let someone down.
I had a VERY busy day that day - company coming from out of town and cooking and cleaning still to do - but I sat down and dashed off a quick blog, and sent it to them with a million effusive apologies, hoping they'd still be able to do it. I checked back often over the day, thinking I had blown it big time.
The next morning I got a lovely email telling me I was right about my day being September 19th, and that it was just a little mix-up.
BIG sigh of relief.
I had a chance for a redo... I could rewrite my hastily written blog if I wanted. But when I reread the blog, I thought... I'm just going to let it stand. It expresses completely how fortunate I feel having three mystery series!
So here is the link, and I would love it if you would drop in an read about how I juggle three mystery series. BTW, it doesn't say much about HOW I do it, I realize, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!
