The Snowman

snowman102111I danced around reading this book having finished off Larsson’s Girl series and needed to bask in warmer climes before returning to the snows of Scandinavia, so I’m arriving late to the Nesbo Fan Club Dinner Dance. The construction of this work is what makes it shine; every writer’s dream is to build a work with Snowman’s perfect sense of timing. Nesbo is adept at peppering the story with subtle clues in an attempt to lead the reader into murky waters while performing the same connivery with his well-rounded cast of characters.  It’s a fun ride, smartly executed.

Twisted Ties

Here’s the final comp for the cover of my soon-to-be-published mystery novel…

I have a wonderful graphic artist, Audra Dean DeFalco, who has put up with my nit-picking and indecision.  Hopefully we’ll have the finals in the next couple weeks and then it will be readily available and you can all flock to Amazon, B&N and load up your Kindle, Nooks or even buy a real copy.  Will keep you posted…

Going Postal (Discworld, #33)Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

How can you not love a character named Moist? Pratchett’s twisted mind has created a protagonist that resembles Black Adder, if he were smart and suave and glib. Okay so maybe he’s less Black Adder and more Victor Lustwig…but in a nice way. Some of the usual Discworld landmarks and persona appear in this tale of mild redemption and cabbage gummed postage stamps.
