I've been a member of Poe's Deadly Daughters since the very beginning. I've loved working with these lovely ladies, excellent writers, wonderful friends, one and all. But it's time for me to move on. Therefore, I'm leaving Poe's Deadly Daughters today and Jeri Westerson is taking my monthly Saturday slot. I wish her good luck. I wish the other "Daughters" much continued success.
I'm now writing non-mystery non-fiction, so to continue to hog a good spot here on PDD isn't fair to other authors and doesn't make a lot of sense. I'm going in another direction with my writing, but I will ALWAYS be a mystery fan and will never stop reading mysteries until someone pries a book out of my cold, dead hands. I'm sure that is true of the rest of you. Mysteries are such fun to read, be they cozies (my personal choice) or fast-paced thrillers (which scare me too much to read, sigh.)
If you want to keep in touch, I will still have a web page at http://www.lonniecruse.com and I will still be writing my weekly newsletter for women: Encouraged Together, every Tuesday. You are welcome to hang out with me at my web page and/or subscribe to said newsletter. Back issues are archived there, should you wish to check them out.
May all your mysteries be great and your TBR (To Be Read) pile ever full, near to toppling over. May you never lose the delight of being so lost in a book that waking up to reality is a bit of a shock. And please remember, I STILL have six mysteries in print, available on Amazon or to order from your local book store.
Thanks ever soooo much for reading me here and in my mysteries. Good--nope, can't type it, so let's just say "So long" for now.
