they tend to fade from sight. At least mine do. Apparently the man who wrote the Mortimer series said the “shelf life of the modern hardback book was somewhere between milk and yogurt.” (Although according to a yogurt that I found camped out at base camp at the back of our fridge as though it was getting ready to make an attempt on Everest as soon as it had acclimatized, that could be up to two years.

That is why it makes me so happy to read a review of my geriatric-at-nine-months-old book in the Delta Leader! And such a nice one, too.
Advance copies of Getting the Girl are beginning to trickle out and I believe my publisher is plotting all kinds of ways you can get an early look. Will keep you posted.
Also, my facebook status updates have been solely concerned with Law & Order cast members for over a week now. My plan is to cover every detective, lawyer and psychiatrist who has ever had a starring role on the show. It could take years! I bet my status updates will get blocked by everyone on my friends list before I’m even an eighth of the way through. Still, it’s good to have goals, even if they make no sense and are really only entertaining for you.
