2017 - Where did you go? ... August

 

 

Once again the days and weeks and months have slipped away... not completely out of my grasp - I did manage to hang on while the latter part of 2017 dragged me along as it galloped out of control, but my grip was always tenuous.  

The craziest months were August, September, and November.  At the beginning of each there were new releases.  So this was August.

The first of August saw the international release of Crossing the Lines, my metafiction.  Published by the wonderful Poisoned Pen Press in the US, and the extraordinary Pantera Press in Australia, it was launched with a great deal of cake and celebration at The Nest in Tumbarumba and Readings Hawthorne in Melbourne.  My husband Michael launched it in Tumbarumba and my dear friend and fellow writer, Robert Gott launched it in Melbourne.  Crossing the Lines was for me a real departure from the historical crime fiction for which I am known.  I've been overwhelmed by the reception it's received from readers and reviewers both here and in the US.  The Huffington Post called it "a deeply-imagined and inventive novel about art, truth, and the blurring of the lines between reality and fantasy" and the Australian said: "Crossing the Lines is a book that smiles and offers cake while it thinks".  Through August I spoke spent many hours travelling with this book and through wonders of modern technology also managed to chat with a lovely bookclub in Hockessin Delaware.
