Barry, this is hilarious. I can picture everything -- including that poor dog. Thanks for this slice of paradise.

I had a situation similar to Marcia's: At a bookshop signing party, a reader was discussing my books with me when another author interrupted us and said, "Have you read my book?" and gave her spiel. We have since become friends. I realize now she had a serious case of "new author syndrome" but it was curable.
GACK! I meant NO, not know. Having a serious case of the Mondays, ya know?
It is hard to say know, Charlaine, especially since, besides being southern, you're a nice person. But time doesn't stretch like bubblegum. Keep saying no when you have to, and think of your readers who want that new book.
You are. I checked.

Sorry you had a problem. I checked with my Webmaster and he said, "Elaine, actually the entries were being added. What was happening is that on the confirmation page, a little script that sends you an email to let you know that somebody had signed up, was outdated and showed that error. I just removed it. Probably because of the change of server. But we don’t really need it. It is working fine now." Thank you for your patience -- and for entering the contest.

A bold move, but one that paid off. Congratulations, Dana.

Because you're a friend, I didn't use the photo of you in pink Spandex, Marcia. You can hang out in the 921s, but I hear it's full of heels.

Yay, Shel. Keep shattering that stereotype. I'm too needle phobic for tatts, too, but I like them.

And the men are just as helpful as the women. In fact, I thanked librarian Dave Montalbono for his help with this book. I'm glad you don't wear your hair in a bun. I much prefer beards on men.

Smart is always attractive, Alan. OK, I'll bite. What is in 613.96?

Mom was right, Charlaine. The good librarians -- and I've known lots of them -- enjoy books and people. Bet you got to read lots of new books with a librarian mom.

By Elaine Viets Checked Out, my new Dead-End Job mystery, is set at the mythical Flora Park Library in South Florida. When I started my 14th Dead-End Job novel, I knew exactly what a librarian looked like. I named my... Continue reading

Agreed on the libraries, Sally. You can practically see those gators moving. The original is at the Worcester Museum in Massachusetts.

I also got to spend time with librarians. Smart people are always fun to talk to -- and the fact that they're book lovers only makes it better. The patrons at this branch regard it as their local hangout. All in all, a cozy place to be.

Me, too. Charlaine. Cleaning toilets and making beds for MURDER WITH RESERVATIONS was no fun, thought I liked the other housekeepers.

Do these turquoise and green suitcases work for you, Charlaine? http://search.aol.com/aol/imageDetails?s_it=imageDetails&q=colorful+suitcases&v_t=keyword_rollover&b=image%3Fq%3Dcolorful%2520suitcases%26s_it%3Dkeyword_rollover%26ie%3DUTF-8%26VR%3D3430%26oreq%3Ddbda08d1e5214025a9a901d4d1a927ed&img=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn.sheknows.com%2Farticles%2F2012%2F06%2Fcolorful-luggage-were-loving-double-dutch.jpg&host=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sheknows.com%2Fbeauty-and-style%2Farticles%2F962550%2Fcolorful-luggage-were-loving&width=110&height=85&thumbUrl=http%3A%2F%2Ft1.gstatic.com%2Fimages%3Fq%3Dtbn%3AANd9GcSR6F7Y7gDVRxw832HWJSBOEwZtM-nh7gGK8VaawGvIWAPnJE7OkYohcf8&imgWidth=280&imgHeight=216&imgSize=56885&imgTitle=colorful+suitcases
I have a black magic bag that can hold almost everything. It wears a bunch of ribbons I got off a champagne bottle. So far it's holding up, but my next bag search, I'm using your technique. I'm past the age when I embarrass easily.
Congratulations, Dana. I agree -- the real hellbender is too cute. More like a heckbender. Hope your book is a (dragon) roaring success.
Jeez, Charlaine, can't I just be myself? And why don't they let their staff be?

I'm sure they are, Mary. Especially if you need expensive drugs. Be Well . . . enough to make it to the pharmacy counter.

I'm geting mixed comments from Walgreens' workers on Facebook, Julie. Some stores have stopped it, others still insist. Hoping all Walgreens get the memo.
