- Sharan Newman reports that she is spending Mother's Day flying from Kalamazoo, where she spent too much on books, to Santa Cruz for a joint talk Tuesday night with three other mystery writers who weave religion into their work. Laurie King has blogged all about it here: www.lauriekingblog.com.
Book Launch for Susan Shea's THE KING'S JAR ('wickedly funny" - Kirkus) Saturday, May 18 at 1 o'clock at Book Passage in Marin County. Bubbly and chocolate to celebrate - everyone invited.
Persistence is the theme for next week. Three takes on that quality from three who know:
"The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense." ~ Thomas A. Edison
"Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm." ~ Winston Churchill
"You don't start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it's good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That's why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence." ~ Octavia Butler
