Some Love from Pornokitsch!

Hey, there!

Good weekend?

Good for me -- spent three days at Left Coast Crime in Monterey, California, surrounded by wonderful mystery writers and readers! Ate a cup of incredible clam chowder at the Wharf, bought a pound of sea salt caramels and stuffed too many (is there really such a thing) of books into my carry-on. Good, good, good!

And I woke up this morning to discover a great book review of LAND OF SHADOWS from U.K. mega-blog Pornokitsch!

...Shadows is best when Norton is doing her police work - Hall has a knack for describing the detail of the procedural day to day, be that the smell of a decomposed corpse (eee) or the breakroom comaraderie.


Wow, I say again!

Go here to read to entire review, and then stay awhile to see what else is poppin'!

Land of Shadows - Now with more shadows!!

The creative minds at Titan Books just keep spinnin' and turnin' and crankin' out cool things.

Like this:

It's my new-new cover art for the UK edition of LAND OF SHADOWS!

I'm so very happy with it.

It reminds me of some of the cover art for mysteries written by my literary heroes!

You like?
