Switching Places . . .

By Lonnie Cruse

Today marks my last regular Friday post on Poe's Deadly Daughters. I'll still be here, but I'm switching places whith Sheila Connolly who posts on PDD once a month on the fourth Saturday. Sheila will post every Friday and I will post on her once-a-month day. I know you all will enjoy seeing more of Sheila's posts!

Why the change? Because nowadays I'm mostly writing non-fiction study booklets for women rather than mystery, so it didn't seem fair for me to hog a weekly spot while Sheila had only a once-a-month slot. And I've pretty much said about all I can about mystery writing/reading. Of course, mystery is, and always will be, my reading of choice. And I'm RARELY at a loss for words.

Blogging is something (at least for me, and maybe you, too?) fairly new to the mystery world, meaning withing the last decade. It gives readers a chance to get to know their favorite authors much better and even interact by posting in the comments area. That interaction between writer and reader wasn't as easy when authors only had web pages.

There are zillions of blogs out there on the Net, and it isn't easy to keep up with all of them. We at Poe's Deadly Daughters are VERY grateful for our readers. Without you there would be no need for the blog! So thanks for hanging around, reading what we have to say, and commenting when you feel comfy to do that. And we'd REALLY love to hear more of your comments, so feel free to click on that link below each post whenever you like.

I'll still be here, posting, reading, commenting, seeing what the rest of you have to say. We want to know what's going on with you as much as you want to know what's going on with us!

I also want to thank my fellow Poe sisters. Their support, help, and friendship mean the world to me. We have really gotten to know each other, behind the scenes, while keeping the blog going.

But remember, we created this mystery blog for you. So, with many thanks and hugs to each of you, that's it for this Friday.

I'll miss your (virtual) smiling face each week.

Lonnie - good luck with your newest passage in life. I know this type of writing is close to your heart, and something you do SO beautifully. But write us a mystery once in awhile too, please!!

Hugs!
Kaye

We aren't letting Lonnie get away completely. She will remain a vital part of this blog -- which she and I started together. (That seems a lifetime ago!)

Yes, we love our readers and appreciate the time you take to visit us each day. We hope it's been worthwhile for you. :-)
