Oprah & Me!

This deserves its own post :- Oprah.com gave me a rave review!

"a tale of a city that's gritty, utterly real and filled with surprises both horrifying and tender. Much like a baguette, this fabulous story is crusty on the outside, sweet on the inside, and once you've had a bit, you can't wait for more."

And who doesn't like baguettes?

Now, I've talked to people who are a little snooty when it comes to Oprah's Book Club and I'll say this: anything that gets people reading is fantastic in my book.  And anything that gets people reading my book is doubly fantastic!

Also, look at some of the other names on that list of "Unputdownable Mysteries": Patricia Highsmith, Kate Atkinson, Stieg Larsson, and Ruth Rendell.  Esteemed company, and damned fine writers.



    Who cares if they're snooty? It's Oprah and they loved your book! Woo hoo! Congratulations! :)

  2. Thanks Jenny - and a new book deal for you? Congrats!! Aren't we just having fun?!

  3. I agree--HUGE!!!! Go you! I'm so happy for you! Don't forget me when you're a mega-famous international bestseller and all. :)

  4. Thanks Lisa! But forget you? Never - we'll be doing author appearances together!

  5. Congratulations! I think you do a lot of good as a Travis County prosecutor, though. Please don't stop that.

  6. Mary, you are kind, thanks so much. On both counts. :)
