Write slower! There are too many funny mysteries and yours are so good! This one especially looks like a winner.

One of my greatest pleasures is taking a week's vacation to read three or four paperbacks on the beach.
I dressed my dog up as a cat for Halloween. Now he won’t come when I call him.

You'll be fine. Only the good die young.

I asked two questions because you said my first was "silly." But go ahead, mock me for trying to help a friend. I can take it. For Dawn: Jeff writes so well because he sold his soul to dark forces.

You were nervous, plus you absolutely look like a criminal.

Your examples are too safe for comment. Who could disagree? You want to discuss PC, you have to bring up the other stuff --like U.S. Presidents being thrown off campus for SOP 400 years ago.

I'm having trouble with your conclusion that women must jump higher to be published. Your column suggests that's true only if they write literary fiction, while we all know that romance and mystery (cozy) are the top categories. Women have been the gatekeepers at every turn for me.

Great news. Your writing is a gift to all of us, Ms. Harris.
Nothing like an editor who makes your work better.

I for one am shocked. I figured anybody sells books like Ms. Harris, her home would be like Upstairs, Downstairs, all kinds of butlers and maids running around. I guess there's no hope for any of us. Pass the detergent.
Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Elvis. I'm older.

As of today, you're on my bench.

Great post and great advice, not only for new artists, but also for old guys wavering under the onslaught of slow sales. I keep looking at those Bigfoot porno Amazon rankings. One nitpick: Dick was better written and funnier, but his show didn't have Lucille Ball.

Well, the photos came out well, though I'm a bit disappointed in the cat fight story. I was hoping you and that photog got into a wrestling match. And I'm a little gray now, not bald.

Willie Mays made those tough catches look effortless, too. The best make it look the easiest.

One of your better rants. You put a smile on my face at 5 am that feels like it will last all day. Thanks. Tell your pal Copperman (Is it a boy or a girl?) to write the following letter to The New York Times: Dear Editor, -- No wait. I'm saving this idea in case my novel sells.

Start The First National Cohen Bank of Mystery. You take a few deposits, make loans to anybody who wants to buy your book. If you run into trouble later, there's always the FDIC to bail you out.
