A Fond Farewell

Thanks for all the years of reading, discussing, laughing.  We'll all miss the community we created together.  Until we meet again, here's where you can find The Lipstick Chronicles Book Tarts online:

Autographed copies of the paperback of Sticky Fingers can be ordered from Mystery Lovers Bookshop:  http://www.mysterylovers.com/ NoWayToKill

My new Blackbird Sisters Mystery, NO WAY TO KILL A LADY   will arrive in bookstores in August, 2012. I'm very exciting about the return of the Blackbirds, and I think readers (especially fans of Mick!) will enjoy this one.

Thanks for reading!  Love to you all!

Oh, missing you already! Come visit me at my website  http://www.HankPhillippiRyan.com --or come chat with the gang at Jungle Red  http://www.JungleRedWriters.com and Femmes Fatales  http://www.femmesfatales.blogspot.com   See you there, okay? Because we have to stay connected.

My new book! Hurray!  Is coming in September..It's a brand new series beginning with THE OTHER WOMAN.  Other-Woman-cvr-16rev

 Lisa Scottoline says “Riveting!” Louise Penny says “Thrilling!”  Sandra Brown says “Wholly entertaining!” Joe Finder says “Hank is a star!” Lee Child says “I knew Ryan was good—but I didn’t know she was this good!”

It's not goodbye, right? Change is good...and I hope our paths cross again soon.  Thank you for everything..you are all treasures. xoxoo





Barbara O'Neal (aka Barbara Samuel)

Gosh, I hate to have to write this, but here's where you can find me elsewhere.  Barbara O'Neal website,  Facebook at www.facebook.com/awriterafoot, and at The Goddess Blogs, where I blog a couple of times a month.  

CoverIt's a big year for me and books.  My new book for Bantam will be out in April. THE GARDEN OF HAPPY ENDINGS is a sweet, sad, happy, magical tale and I really hope you'll love it as much as I do.  Dogs and recipes included for free. 

 I also have a big multicultural World War II romance coming out this summer from Belle Books.  The Sleeping Night, written as Barbara Samuel, has been a long time arriving in the world,  I'm VERY happy that it's finally going to come out and meet readers.  

Again, what a treat it has been to hang out with all of you here.  Thank you!

I'm writing. Someday it will be a book. It may even have a title.  Let us pray.

I have loved being here, I love you guys, and I'm lucky and grateful to know you.

My website (www.MargaretMaron.com) doesn't have the capability of posting comments, so I mostly use it for updating events or miscellaneous information that may or may not be pertinent.  And you can write me through the contact there.  I usually answer within the week unless I'm on deadline.

I seem to have 3 Facebook pages (don't ask!) but the one I pay most attention to is the one with this picture.  So just google me and you'll stumble across it.

Please do come say hey at one of those pages.

FWIW, my 18th Deborah Knott book will be published next fall:  The Buzzard Table.  In it, my two series characters will meet again as they did in Three-Day Town that came out last month.  This time Sigrid Harald comes down to Deborah's turf.  

TLC has been a wonderful experience.  Thank you all for giving me such a warm welcome.  And special thanks to Nancy Martin for inviting me to join the party she created.  I'm going to miss hanging out around the water cooler with all of you.

I'm not going to think of us as gone, but just on a long road trip. 

My New Year's Resolution is to make friends with Facebook. But it's 3 days before New Year's as I write this, which means at this point you can find me there more easily than I can find myself.

My website is www.harleyjanekozak.com and if you put yourself on my mailing list, I will send you my newsletters. Oh, wait -- I've never written a newsletter. There's another New Year's Resolution. 

I have a book coming out in late 2012 (I think) that's a paranormal mystery romance, part of a trilogy with the inimitable Heather Graham and Alexandra Sokoloff. It has to do with elves living in L.A. Tall elves. 

I will miss you all. (sob.) Now I must go pack for the road trip. Last one out, close the door. But leave the porch light on.

You can find me at my personal blog, Faster Than Kudzu, or you can be my friend on facebook, or if that feels like too much of a commitment, you can just click to say youlike me. Sometimes I Tweet things.

I am currently writing a book that was supposed to have mollusks in it, and the mollusks were going to experience a MIRACLE. A small one. Not quite a one celled miracle, but not much more complicated than that. A bivalve kind of miracle. But you know what? MOLLUSKS ARE NOT INTERESTING. Unless you are serving them fried. So now the book has giraffes. As you can see, I REALLY like giraffes. Maybe too much.

On January 25th, A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty comes out. It’s the first book I have built over the engine of a murder mystery since gods in Alabama, and Booklist said, in a starred review, “…a mesmerizing tale …This is Jackson’s most absorbing book yet, a lush, rich read...” and other reviewers said a lot of other nice stuff, so you should probably get a copy. Trust me, it’s the right thing to do.

If you live in the South, please check the tour dates and come see me in February! We will have fun, I promise.

If you live elsewhere, you can still get a signed or personalized copy while supporting a superlative Indie bookstore, and you will keep me in organic milk and book contracts. Say whoop! It's  The Virtual Book Signing,  You are especially sexy if you tweet or facebook or blog  to tell OTHERS to participate; it is a true fact that passing on the info about the VBS makes your skin look as dewy as a fourteen year old virgin’s. That's just science.


Brunonia Barry Barry-brunonia-100
website: brunoniabarry.com. Leave a message there, and I'll get back to you. 
Follow me on twitter if you are so inclined. 
Facebook: Brunonia Barry is my author page, Sandra Brunonia Barry is my friend page. I write more on Brunonia Barry, and do my blog posts there, but you are welcome at either place. 
I'm working on my third novel which is tearing me into little pieces, but will be worth it, I think. It will come out in the summer of 2013. I have a title, but I'm not allowed to tell you what it is yet. 
I Skype with book clubs. Maybe I should write that on a wall somewhere. Not a Facebook wall, a real one. If I get arrested, please post bail. 
So great to meet you all on TLC. I hope we stay in  touch.

It's been a great run here on TLC, hasn't it? Sigh. But, the good news is that only death (and maybe not even THAT) can part us.
Smart girls
Here's how to find me should you, in some state of delirium, need a Bubbles, et al fix.
First, please look for my first ever YA novel on June, 26th SMART GIRLS GET WHAT THEY WANT. Really fun and peppy and NECESSARY! Because I WAS a smart girl and I am the MOTHER of a smart girl and friend to her SMART GIRL friends. It's about time we have a fun, uplifting, motivating book of our own, no?
After that, KINDRED SPIRITS comes out in paperback July 3 and then look for a Brand New Book of Double Secret Identity in 2013.
In between, you can find me on Facebook. Or Twitter. Or the post office wall. (That is, if it hasn't been torn down.)
Or my trusty website, sarahstrohmeyer.com
You have been the BEST readers and backbloggers. You are my FRIENDS!
Remember, there's no such thing as goodbye. There's only see ya later or, in the case of pesky telemarketers, Que? Lo siento. No habla Ingles
