Go ahead… make my day.
1. I read it immediately. Really. How many writers do you know that don’t welcome a distraction? It’s why my dog gets so much exercise.
2. I take it to heart. Whether your email is thumbs up or middle finger up, I care about what you say and appreciate that you took the time to say it.
3. I wish I could answer them all. But I can’t. If I did, I’d never make a deadline, and the dog wouldn’t get any exercise. So I answer what I can, when I can, and my assistant, Bill, answers the rest.
4. There’s one question I get a lot, and I can save you and Bill some time if I answer it here. Will there be any more Lomax and Biggs books? I never say never, but I am not currently working on one, nor do I plan to start one in the foreseeable future.
So whether you have questions, observations, criticism, or you’re at work and looking for your own distraction, I’d love to hear from you. You’ll either get a prompt, helpful response from Bill, or I’ll get back to you… eventually.
Thank you for supporting my life of crime.
