Say What?!

Mitchum's looking a little skeptical, but once in a while, you've got to forgive an author for sharing news. Particularly when it's good news. :)

In the April 15th edition of Library Journal, the cover story focuses on trends in the mystery/crime genre, like the mushrooming popularity of audio books (ITW's The Chopin Manuscript) and the growing awareness of and market for large-print editions.

It then concludes with the subheading "Roman noir, anyone?", and goes on to highlight my debut novel NOX DORMIENDA as a combination of two hot, emerging trends in the genre: historical fiction and classic hardboiled/noir/PI stories.

You can read the full article here:

To say I'm thrilled beyond belief would be an understatement! I'm not literally dancing in the streets at the moment, because I happen to be in Denver for the next few days, and it happens to be snowing. But when I get back to San Francisco ...

After a suitable interval, noir will return. Right now, I want to post about bubblegum rock (just kidding!)

WAY TO GO Kelli!!!!

Who have you picked to do the reading for the audio book version?

Gee, Soph, I was kind of holding out for Russell Crowe! ;)

Yo, Russell!

Don't know if he heard me ...


Thanks, sweetie -- how's the writing?

Great news! Hope you're home and dancing in the streets now. And what about Jason Statham for the audio book? He's a little shorter than I'd like for the film, but I think he'd be great!
