Can you believe the first half of January has already passed us by? The buzz of the holidays has officially settled down, we’re getting back into the groove of going to work, and now there’s room for new adventures to start creeping into our lives.
For me, that means a trip to Key West! I’m spending the weekend at the Key West Literary Seminar, along with my friends Lee Child and Michael Connelly, and other wonderful writers. Not a bad place to travel for business, right? Although I must say, in January, with temperatures dipping into the 50‘s, it isn’t exactly swimming weather!
What else is new?
1. Don’t Know Jack reached a milestone this week! Can you guess what it is? Put your guess in the comments! And prepare for a party!

4. We conducted a poll on My Facebook Page, asking fans to name their favorite dead mystery/suspense/thriller writer. We got so many submissions, we had to narrow it down to the top 2 — Agatha Christie and Dick Francis. We had a runoff, and the winner was Agatha Christie. Sorry, Francis Fans! Congrats, Agatha Addicts!
5. Anyone looking to discover new books will enjoy Thursday’s interview with my friend Joshua Graham. Read how Joshua traveled from musician to IT guy to #1 Bestselling thriller writer HERE.
It may be the weekend, but I’m already thinking about what to bring you next week. Two words: “Gasparilla”, and “Oscars.” Oh, and that little party I mentioned.
1. You sold a million copies of Get Jack Back
2. Your hard back is out of Get Jack Back
Now wouldn’t both of those be lovely, Donna! I’ll put them on my wish list!
