March is going to be crazy

On March 2, Lis Wiehl and I get the editorial letter for the second book in our adult mystery series, called Hand of Fate. That same day, I'm also scheduled to participate in Read Across America at Maplewood Elementary. It's been a while since I've talked to fifth graders - I better figure out something to say soon.

On the 5th, Torched comes out! And I'm taking part in a book discussion sponsored by my publishers of Janet Burroway's Writing Fiction.

On the 13th, Oregon SCWBI members will hold a giant signing event.

On the 17th, I've been called up for federal jury duty. A judge told me you almost always get assigned to a jury. My problems are that a) edits for Hand of Fate had better be done by then and b) If the trial lasts long at all, I'll have a conflict with an Oregon librarians conference where I'll be speaking with GM Ford.

I was also planning on going to my mom's for spring break, but that might not work out because of the whole jury thing.

Oh, and there's the chance that sometime in March I'll get an editorial letter for my next YA thriller.

And I'll need to do all this stuff while working on two other books, one of which I would like to finish.

Christopher Moore is funny

Christopher Moore is funny. But you already knew that. His new book, Fool, debuted on the NY Times hardcover bestseller look at #4. Now most authors would be happy with that, but Moore took a look at the people above him on the list, including James Patterson.

"#2: James Patterson: He keeps a large stable of Vietnamese children chained in his basement who actually write his books for him. In his defense, though, he goes down there and describes sunlight to them and gives them a Mountain Dew if they've turned in their book for that week."
