Sneak peek at my new book
« on: July 17, 2007, 07:35:36 AM »

Writers Digest Books has just released a sneak peek at my new book. Here's the link if anyone's interested.

The book is scheduled for release on August 6, but it's available now for pre-order on Amazon and all the other usual outlets.

Lee, it looks terrific.  I love the cover.  And I see you have already been booked for personal appearances.  Way to go!  Much success!

I love it, Lee! Looks like a book every mystery writer should have on their shelf.

Thanks, guys. I hope everyone finds the book interesting and fun. It's definitely not the normal research book. As I told Ingrid earlier, I spent a lot of time making sure the book was what writers had told me they wanted. I also wrote it with  CSI and Forensics Files viewers in mind.

Looks good, Lee! 

BTW, I may be at Forensic U.  It's a big time commitment (pretty much sucks up all my days off that week), and I'm not very nitty-gritty oriented (CoziesRMe), but it's local for me, so it's tempting.

Forensics U (I can't bring myself to type just FU :) is going to a great event. Wait until you see what's on the schedule! I don't think there's ever been anything like this available to non-law-enforcement/scientist/medical people.

You won't be disappointed.

I hope to see you there.

If it's anything close to what you did at the Pennwriters conference they are in for a big treat! ;D

Tried to preorder your book a couple of weeks ago at Borders but they told me to wait until the end of this month.  <sigh>

Thanks, Peg, but I'm just a small fish in that big pond of heavy-hitters.

Shoot, if you wait until the end of this month to order the book you may as well wait until it's in the store. That's the 6th of August.

Of course, Peg. We'll find a way to make to happen. After all, you're my number one heckler!

Thanks Matthew and Lynette.

Lynette, I'm going to pass along your cover comment to the designer. There's a bit of history with that cover design. When the folks at Writers Digest first showed it to me I didn't like it and said so. Well, I gave it a chance and it finally grew on me, and now after I've seen it actually on a book, I really like it.  Anyway, your comment along with many others just like it will certainly show the artist that she was right (and I was wrong). She'll be pleased.

Totally enjoyed the tidbit they offered on the web site and am looking forward to holding the entire book in my hand. 

Thanks for sharing it.
