Thanks, Priscilla and CONGRATULATIONS on your Killer Nashville nomination!

Sashimi is prettier than I thought. (I thought it was a tidal wave that wrecked homes.)

NOT appealing, Linda!

I like your idea of "thrashing," Ann - necessary for me, too, to get to the zone! If in the zone and blocked after coffee and a biscotti, I have the (fictional) phone or doorbell ring. Who is it? Why are they calling? What's she going to do about it? SOMETHING will come up as an answer that moves the plot one way or another. Or I end up nagging my characters. "Do something!" They usually obey.

Let me know if renaming works, Terry, but I have to say I can't imagine celery winning out over anything from my local bakery! Thanks for giving us authors credit for at least some discipline!
Yes, this time the mini was wrong, Mysti! The problem was the wafer and the chocolate center had to match in size. Interesting experiment! Maybe it is "niche"-related, Ann! But when I needed new luggage recently I bought it in a store that had only TWO choices!

Wow, Admin, this is one to be printed and studied. While I'm thinking of the last question, all the current "procedurals" on tv come to mind. The trend is to give every series cop family or romantic baggage: her sister was murdered when they were kids; his wife and daughter were murdered, the killer still out there; the new boss is her ex; his mother is in a psych ward. As if the writer can't think of another way to give the character gravitas. Maybe readers/viewers need this?
Thanks, Terry. I like the image of Ida Ruth reading one of my Miniature Mysteries. I can sign a copy for her and send it to Small Town, Texas!

Ann, It looks like a lot when it's listed this way . . . I'll bet if you write everything out, your list will match in length! Also, as you've probably found out, the e-reader makes it so much easier to have many books going at once -- built in bookmarks and places for notes and the ability to carry around as many books as you want! I'm a snatch reader (and writer!), catching bits of time all day, then a couple of hours at night. TMI probably!
Love this post, Priscilla. I'd love to talk Thomism with Brother T -- took 6 years, but I got through a lot of the Summa! Blame those scholarly Arabs for translating Aristotle just in time for the greatest of centuries. Any your parallels with today are nothing but on the mark!

Nothing in The Hydrogen Murder connected to the Citizen Jane story -- it was simply the book she was reading when the intruder came in and killed her.
Yes, Staci -- the closest I've come to a tv book deal!
