Just came back from a trip to Battle Creek for a meeting of Sisters In Crime, a group that appeals to my alter-ego career: gasping for a living as a mystery/ thriller writer. D.E. Johnson, author of Detroit Electric Scheme gave a great talk about his writing process and advice for breaking through in the traditional publishing world. I got a copy of his book and can't wait to read it. Of course, I'm beginning to think the "tradition" of publishing is changing. I've done what I said I never would: self-published. And I plan to do it again. Look for Great News Town coming out in July.
